    Tomorrow never comes.

    You know when you meet a new group of people and you’re polite and they’re polite and you hope they like you? And you know when this new group of people lives next door to you and you realize, after a year, the politeness is over and now they’re reading about themselves on your blog? Oh. It’s April 26th. I have four days to prepare for a 5-mile mud race including 22 military-style obstacles, such as crawling in mud under barbed wire and climbing up walls by lifting each other up like middle-aged cheerleaders. Scott and I agreed to run Battle Frog on April 30th with our neighbors. Our neighbors, the highlight reel:…

    The Color Run.

    I can’t move out of bed because of my legs. Oh wait. I should whisper this. I can’t move out of bed because of my legs. I had to whisper because I am forbidden to talk about my legs throbbing in pain with Scott in the room. He is still recovering from knee surgery. Knee surgery pain trumps all-over-can’t-move-both-legs pain. Hi Scott. You want to know what happened? I’ll tell you what happened. I ran. And now I’m fairly certain my neighbor is plotting my death.

I am sure there are runners in the morning but I have a sleeping-in-until-the-last-possible-second problem to even notice. A few friends of mine ran the Kansas City Marathon this past weekend. Shut. Up. 26 miles of running with no music? 26 MILES. Say whaaa?!  You guys are all crazy. All of you. I wrote this a couple years ago.…

    Running.

    Scott wants to run the 5k in KC next month. Scott doesn’t normally do much cardio. I’m actually shocked he told me he’s going to do it. He sticks to lifting free weights. Then Scott asked me if I would do it with him. And asked me again tonight. HA! N-freakin-O. I hate cardio. I hate running, no, no – LOATHE running. My best mile in high school P.E. – 12 minutes. And that was trying really hard. I generally came dragging in dead last. Yeah, I’ll do like 10 or 15 minutes on an eliptical machine at the gym. Then I’m off to the free weights with the big…
