National Running Day 2014!

Happy #NationalRunningDay!

National Running DayI hope everyone has a chance to get out there and run today. I ran 6 miles this morning for #TeamJaimie This guy also ran for Jaimie because he’s all kinds of cool.

Thank you to all of you who have inquired about the TeamJaimie T-shirts. They should be ready in a few weeks and I will definitely let you know.

Also, if you need new running gear or you want to register for a race, today is the day. Check out my National Running Day discounts for lots of good stuff.

I’m all kinds of busy today! I have a couple of important meetings. I have to go to the bank. Then I have to jet out to Tampa to pick up the dogs flea medicine. Apparently someone was a bit late in picking it up this month so a few trips to the park later and Houston, we have a flea problem!

dogs and fleas

Yeah, so I won’t be late picking that up again.

Lastly, because it’s National Running Day I really wanted to write something out of this world, something no one else has done before….of course, there are always the usually posts about why someone loves to run, the running story, running history, running facts or things to do on National Running Day…..

That shits been played out. And so I googled and I searched and I read Runner’s World and Women’s Running and I went to website after website, but finally I think I found the one thing that no one else could possible have on National Running Day……..

May I present to you…..

What’s in Shalane’s fridge?

Tell me something random about your National Running Day, it can be anything, just something random…..

Church of the Long Run, Shalane Flanagan is awesome!

I trust y’all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was pretty gosh darned exciting!

Peacocks and Pedicures Two things. Peacocks and Pedicures! There is no substitution.

My Mom and I had a garage sale this weekend. You might think that would be fun for me since I love going to them, but not really. Actually, I hate hosting them. I am finding that in my oldish age, I don’t really like too many people. Granted the majority of the people who came were nice but we also had our fair share of idiots and nutjobs. I realize that I may also tend to attract these types of people but the ‘wish it up’ lady and 9am drunk were my favorites.

Piss Drunk

Did you know that you can just walk around and wish for things all day and most of your wishes come true? No really, you can. This lady was like 55 years old and she’s been doing it her whole life. She wished a few new cars and even a few wins at the casino, Bless her little heart.

The next time you are bored or need some cheap entertainment, I suggest you host a garage sale of your own. That is some fine entertainment there people and it’s free, although you may want to borrow my idiot and nutjob attraction perfume just to make sure you get the cream of the crop. I’m gonna to be bottling it up pretty soon and it should be available at all the fine department stores.

This year I had a garage sale but last year at this time, I ran the Iron Girl half and even though the massive bridges you have to run over kicked my butt, I was really sad I missed it this year. But even though I had to miss it, my friend Cheryl ran and I am so proud of her, she finished first in her division! That’s gold baybee!

Cheryl wins gold I stole that picture from your facebook Cheryl! I couldn’t help myself…

Cheryl is one of the only people I have ever met that loves running as much as I do and she probably doesn’t know this but she is one of my inspirations and she motivates me to want to be a better runner and to get faster.

And since we’re on the subject of my inspirations, did you watch the Shalane Flanagan interview on 60 minutes last night? I hope you got to see it. My Mom and I watched it and we’ve decided that if Shalane lived near me, we’d be besties. (The Church of the Long Run, OMG) We love her.

But on a serious note, I want her to win Boston so badly. She really deserves that and how great would that be, right? I know I’ll be rooting for her and I may even have to call up the wishing lady.

Now because it’s Monday and you might need a little motivation, heres another pic I stole, this time from my Brother-in-law’s facebook:

There was a fire

Did you watch the interview with Shalane?
