Flipflops in the Rain

i’ve changed… i guess i’m a runner now?

so, i’ve decided to become an aspiring runner. maybe it’s because of all the running slash health blogs i read. maybe it’s because it’s pretty in my new kicks. maybe it’s because it allows me to pound out some anxiety, sadness and frustration in a productive way. maybe it’s because i enjoy eating 3.5 pounds of peanut butter m&m’s in four days and i want a way to expend some of those calories. (yeah. that happened. it was disgustingly delicious. please don’t try it at home.)

whatever the reason, i’ve somehow signed on for four races in the next year. i also ran an 8K in may. i don’t even know myself anymore.

next weekend’s is another 8K and there’s a beer garden at the finish line. i also get to dress up like a pirate.

the next one is a few months out, and teams of 4 compete in a 5K obstacle course. there’s also beer at the finish line.

the next one, however, is the seattle half marathon, thanksgiving weekend, and i’m pretty sure there’s no free beer. what the hell am i thinking? have you BEEN to the seattle area in november? it’s awful. god awful. it’s flooded and cold and just awful. i’m thrilled.

the next one — another half —  isn’t until may 2011, so there’s plenty of time to back out.

I’m running a half marathon because of this view.

I live alone!

Happy 4th, loves. I went to a killer party, and 2.5 hours later, I went to my new apartment to chill w my cat and watch an episode of veronica mars that i’ve watched 10 times. I also decided that, hey! I want to make homemade granola! So I made homemade granola.

Living alone kills.
