Today has some entertaining business for you so hopefully you will enjoy…
First off, RUNNING talk!
Monday was the kick off for the RW Run Streak and it was mighty hot here in Kzoo as I mentioned. What I didn’t mention was I woke up EXTREMELY grumpy on Monday. Oh yeah, and bloated thanks to some bacon and other unwise salty choices during the weekend (and the heat). It wasn’t pretty. It also made me even more grumpy. I waited until it cooled down a smidge, about 8:30 pm or so and headed out in my tempos… which felt tight. Then they rode up the whole 1 mile run – awesome. I hate it when my shorts ride up! It brings back bad memories of being a chubby bunny and makes me feel super self-conscious. I walked 2.5 miles after the 1 mile run and it broke my spirit a bit. Uh, no, I didn’t take a pic…
Tuesday, I went down and bought a new running skirt so if the little shorts rode up at least no one would see. I bought the Brooks Women’s PR Running Mesh skirt and took it for a spin last night. Major difference! I rocked 4 miles and then walked one mile home. Yes, it was a few degrees cooler but the shorts didn’t ride up and I as able to run embarrassment free! Even a bit faster than normal! Am I really that shallow that I can’t have a good run if I have a wardrobe malfunction?! Why yes, I am. It’s one thing to have the junk in the trunk doing a dance for all to see but when everything feels off I am one cranky camper. Brooks thank you for allowing me to “Run Happy”
The little shorts have some rubber on the inside to keep them from riding up and it comes in a few different colors. It’s not super cheap – $50 but since it is getting HOT here it’s worth it in order to a) enjoy my run and b) actually go out and run.
Today I went to the dentist. I spend quite a bit of time at my dentist – my teeth are not the strongest and I have decent dental insurance so I’m lucky enough to be able to fix some of the issues I have. Oh yeah, and I had my tongue pierced when I was in college. Giant mistake… and a costly one since we think it has contributed to some of my back teeth weakening – super fun! Today I had to go in for a crown on one side and a biopsy – got one or two stitches – on the other side of my mouth. Ummm… PAINFUL! Wowzers – I forgot how much crowns hurt!
While I was all numbed up and on the nitrous oxide I realized what a scene this was – with all of the tools, my mouth wide open, drills and whatnot and I said the following:
Me: If aliens saw this they would think it was really weird… I bet they wouldn’t even land…
Yeah… the dentist and hygienist laughed but I am sure they turned the knob down on the gas! They already think I am a bit crazy anyways considering where they cut off the skin in my mouth I tried to remove it once before on my own. Yeah, doing your own “mouth surgery” is not recommended and I understand why! Please just trust me! I’ve taken some painkillers (okay about 50) and realized I needed to rest. Tomorrow is going to be kind of painful :(
p.s. the spider is still there… now I really need to figure something out!
