Gabe-ism

ME: “…Oof.” GABE: “What’s the problem?” ME: “Nothing. Just a cramp.” GABE: “Maybe you should go use the bathroom.” ME: “No, not that kind of cramp.” GABE: “Well, if it’s not a bathroom one, what kind of cramp is it?” ME: “Just a cramp. Sometimes ladies get cramps.” GABE: “And sometimes boys do?” ME: “Different …

Because everybody needs a bit of randomness

Sam has another loose tooth. It’s the one next to the lower-middle one he lost already. He claims that the one above it feels funny, too, but I can’t see it wiggle yet. Eric’s travel means a shake-up in running plans. I’ll do my longer runs in the gym this week, and my shorter ones …

Chilled

Somehow, I didn’t manage to get a whole, rectangular patch of my back with sunscreen when we were at the lake yesterday. Nice to be able to wear a bikini, I’ll grant you, but it does mean greater hazards in the realm of sun protection. 🙄 So now I have a nice little burn stretching …

Another year, another party

Runners: Open Thread!

Long run day today for me. I did 10 miles in 1’33”, incorporating in the walk time I inserted while eating my gel and drinking water. I tried strawberry-flavored Honey Stinger today, which tasted all right, but I’m not sure how much it helped. Twenty minutes later, my stomach felt like it usually does when …

Up with what I put

GABE: “Do I have to take a nap?” ME: “Yes.” GABE: “AUGGGGGGGGGH! If you don’t let me get my way, I’m going to interrupt!” ME: “…” GABE: “…” ME: “Gabe, what – ” GABE: “NYAAAAAAAH! See? That’s what you get!” 🙄

Spendy morning

Here in our town, there are two regularly-held Farmer’s Markets. One is downtown, and although I’ve heard that it’s pretty good, I’ve never been to it. The other one, on our side of town, has been held in the parking lot of the mall for a long time, twice a week through the summer and …

Don’t test me!

It’s hot. I go outside to the garage to see about hauling out the kiddie pool. I am barefoot, because I am a MORON. Kiddie pool: has no plug. 😡 I go back in the garage in search of the sprinkler. Sprinkler: nowhere to be found. 👿 Interlude: one of the new renters in the …

Voomaxer

By the way, if you’re a runner (or a swimmer, or a biker), and you’re on Facebook, and you’re not using Voomaxer as a training log, I’d like to know why not. 😉 Seriously, I love my little chart. Other training logs are more full-featured, sure, but I don’t need much more!

Warm out

How is it 86 degrees? Was it supposed to be 86 degrees, and I somehow missed that? This is what happens when you’re not obsessively clicking “refresh” on weather.com to see if your race is going to get rained out. At least today was a gym day, so I wasn’t out running in whatever the …
