Turtles, Bart Yasso and Lil Wayne, could that be any more random?

Happy Friday! Are you getting ready for the weekend?

I have a race this weekend so I am pretty excited about it. I’m running this Half Marathon:

Gasparilla Half Marathon

I’m headed to the expo today. I was hoping to be able to stay for a while since THE Bart Yasso is speaking at 3pm but I probably wont be able to . *big sigh

Yesterday while running on the Ream Wilson Trial near my house I practically stepped on this:


And I almost cried. I’m not sure if it was because I almost crushed the turtle or because the turtle was outrunning me.

Did you know that today is National Sticky Buns day? I’m pretty sure they mean the kind you eat and not the kind you get after running for a few hours in the heat and humidity but you just never know….

Last night I actually convinced MacGyver to go to the mall with me. I wanted to get some new running clothes for my race this weekend but that didn’t happen. Instead we ended up eating way too many soft pretzels from Auntie Anne’s and people watching and I am pretty sure I saw Lil Wayne. MacGyver said it wasn’t him but he’s listened to about as much rap as Jimmy Carter so how would he know anyway. I still think it was him.

Oh, and in case I didn’t mention it, we are expecting rain again this weekend. Because, you know, I have a race. I’m fairly confident that I could end any future droughts we might experience by scheduling a race.

And because I love ya, here are some Friday Funnies:

  1. Your posts crack me up! Thanks for the giggles this fine Saturday morning. Yes, it has been forever since I visited your blogs. Forgive me:)

    Must ask…Did you pick that cute bugger up and carry him across the path? Think I might have. How many cute running outfits do you own??? You would be mortified to see what I look like when I run. I still look like I am on my first run every time I go out there. The spit running pic looks like she is seeking comfort with some thumb sucking. Almost woke the BF up when I LOL at the dog pic. Great!

    Wishing you a fabulous, rain-free race. Bet it will have a pretty cool looking medal or t-shirt. Go get that “booty”!

    • LOL, I totally did pick him up and carry him to the other side! I’m always afraid one of the park maintenance guys or a biker will crush my sweet turtles and Im ashamed to say I own far too many running clothes and not enough regular ones but hey, as long as they’re cute right? It did stop raining for now but the race starts Sunday at 6am so I’m hoping that the rain will be completely over and the humidity will be a little easier to deal with…we’ll see.

  2. Not racing this weekend but sizing up my race calendar for this year. I’m going after a 10 mile trail race for the first time which has me really excited.

    I love that last picture of the bear chasing the runner. I felt that way when I came across a skunk last summer (in the early morning – ugh).
