So Last Week, Man

So...some of my friends just won't let me live it down that I won 2nd place...against myself...at my last marathon. A lovely friend (I'm using this term loosely) sent me this photo. Thanks Tom!
That was So Last Week...or more accurately...So a Week and a Half Ago. Are you and Doug in cahoots? Either way...this totally cracks me up. Doug actually mentioned I needed to be standing in the 2nd place slot. Thanks babe for the correction.

Tonight Doug and I are hosting a run from our home and then we're headed to a restaurant around the corner for some dinner. I'm excited to see some friends I haven't seen in a while and meet a couple new friends. We'll be running on the new paved trail that starts less than a quarter mile from our house. I love it! Molly and I marked the trail this morning on our 3 mile walk so the runners know where to run. The little booger has walked over 125 miles so far this year.

Well..this weekend...I can pretty much guarantee I will not be bringing home a trophy, except maybe a trophy for the best Derby Hat. We'll see... We'll be heading to Nikemom's to partake in Kentucky Derby festivities and then running the Lincoln Marathon on Sunday. Should be Good Times! Marathon 3 for the year and Marathon 20 total. 20 baby! Doug will be running his 74th Marathon and this will be the 10th anniversary of his first marathon which was run in Lincoln, so this will be a special run for him. Congrats hon on 10 years and 74 marathons!

  7. RunToFinish-Come on over anyway...if you knee starts hurting...walk. You can probably walk faster than I run.

    I have friends in 'high' places. We worked something out for the beautiful weather today!

  10. I made the mistake of pulling up that photo in class. What a riot! I love those fake motivational posters...

    Can't wait to hear all about the Derby. I've never attempted an event like that. Have fun!
