I’ve decided to take the day off from running today. Instead MacGyver and I woke up early and went to a garage sale. They advertised tons of fiestaware which I was super excited about but we ended up buying beach chairs and a beach umbrella instead.
I was perfectly content just going to the one sale but MacGyver saw a sign for another one and so I was like, sure fine let’s go to it too, and we did.
We bought a few more things, (but not sex toys) and then headed home and there was still time to go running, but I opted out because it’s National Donut Day!
Krispy Kreme donuts is giving away donuts for free, no purchase required! Dunkin Donuts is giving away a donut with the purchase of a beverage. I can’t eat the donuts myself, but I will drink the coffee and MacGyver can have the donuts. You should go get some though because, free!
Yesterday afternoon, after a 10 hour workday, my brain was fried and I needed some sort of a distraction. I decided to watch a good documentary on Netflix and you can thank me later because I have a really good running documentary to recommend to you.
Check out Finding Traction, it’s a film about Nikki Kimball, an ultra marathoner who’s quest is to beat the men’s record on the Long Trail and to raise money for Girl’s on the Run. I really liked it.
If you aren’t familiar with Nikki Kimball, look her up. She’s a phenomenal ultra runner who’s battled depression and used running to overcome it. Her story is inspiring.
Do y’all remember Harriet Carter, the 94 year old running granny I told you about a few years ago?
Yesterday I was looking over emails and a feed from Runner’s World came in and I saw this story about a Ragnar Race
and how this one runner was attacked during her night run! She managed to get away because she was able to scream out for help and fortunately it was 9:30 at night and someone was up and outside and heard her but how scary. You can read the article here.
Last night MacGyver and were watching Netflix when he put on this movie that bored the hell out of me until it didn’t because it won my entire week. This has got to be the best gif ever. Brad Pitt running in War Machine is delicious! As the most awkward runner on the planet, from the bottom of my heart, thank you Brad Pitt.
Bring on the gif
You know what goes perfect with my awkard running gait? My eye twitch. Because yes, I still have an eye twitch in my left eye. If it wasn’t caused by my thyroid medication, or my topirimate, what the hell is causing it? Why is still twitching? What is the twitch? Covfefe!
Happy Friday! Get out there and get your donuts! And then go run. Go!
What are your plans for the weekend?
