Happy Birthday to ME!


It's my birthday

I Said it’s MY birthday!

Happy Birthday to me

Don’t even tell me to relax…….because….

Cant keep calm, it's my birthday

And I need to party on….

And this concludes the shameless Birthday post plug….feel free to send birthday wishes, presents are optional, unless of course you happen to be a big name athletic clothing or shoe company and then, by all means, send on my friends, send on.

Birthday ice cream

You know, because I’m old and old people eat sherbert, get it?

Happy Saturday to all my non-birthday peeps! And to those lucky enough to have been born on this glorious day that is August 23rd, Happy Birthday you lucky ducks! We rock!

A shopping Coma….

What does a woman do the day before her birthday? Well, I don’t know about you but here’s what I do…I go shopping! Boom! New running clothes, new running shoes, new running gear, just all things running! A shopping coma! It’ll be spectacular…


And then I hit up the beach and maybe a sunset with some margarita’s.

Yes, friends, that is the Birthday Eve plan.

I may also spend some time on the boat but whatever we do, I’m sure I’ll be updating instagram and possibly facebook as much as I can and I’ll have a few posts this weekend as well. Be sure to check those out…

But in the meantime, I have a present for you!

Remember how I told you that Cozy Zuehlsdorff from the Dolphin Tale and Dolphin Tale 2 movies was extremely talented? Well, not only is she a wonderful actress but just like her costar Harry Connick, Jr. she is also a talented musician. In fact she wrote and performs one of the songs from Dolphin Tale 2! It’s called “Brave Souls”

And it’s really, really good!

And because I happen to be a Dolphin Tale 2 Blog Ambassador and because tomorrow is my birthday I’m going to share the song with you right here.


Stay tuned for updates on Dolphin Tale 2 and don’t forget the movie comes out September 12th!

Do you like to shop?

What’s the one thing you love to shop for?

They say it’s your birthday….in two days..

Guess what?

Saturday is my Birthday! Hollah! I’m pretty stoked about it. Except I haven’t decided what I want to do, where I want to go, or what I want in the way of presents and that is so unlike me.

What I do know is that I do want to do something, I do wanna go somewhere, and I do wanna get presents! I just may have to wing it this year.

We’ve been a little busy down here in Venice hanging with family. I haven’t really had much access to the internet or even cable TV. Mostly I’ve been doing this:



And running.

I’ve been running a lot. I’m building up my base with some easy longish runs and when my next races roll around, I’ll be ready.

Now, I need some advice…

What should I do for my birthday down here in Venice, Florida?

What do you do on your birthday?

What do you think would make a good birthday present? (Please pick something good, MacGyver will be reading. *hint hint)
