Another rousing edition of TTT.
1. New Music--I spent some time downloading some new music for running the other day. I wanted to share some songs that I found that make me want to get going! First, Flo-Rida's Good Feeling. It's a little different than your typical rap-like song, but I really like it! It gives me a Good Feeling!! Maybe I was a gangsta in another life cause I just seem to like his songs. Another one I'm really liking now and lmfao at is LMFAO's I'm Sexy and I Know It. Ok, so that's the first time I've seen that video and I haven't stopped laughing! Just the words were making me laugh and now I have the visual too...... oh boy!
2. I had to purchase a new ipod touch as my old one did not survive the Maine 1/2 Marathon. As you might remember, it was downpouring the entire time I ran (all 2 hours 1 min and 58 sec). My ipod worked for the whole race and I had tucked it into my sleeve to keep it as dry as possible so I thought it was ok. However, since I was soaked through, I mean wringing out my clothes soaked, my ipod also got soaked. I tried to dry it in rice, but the damage was already done. It would turn on and took a charge but when I went to swipe to unlock it, it didn't feel my touch. :( It was now an ipod no-touch. So being the ipod junkie that I am, I immediately went and purchased a new one. Now I have a camera too! Bonus!
3. I just got an email that the proofs from the Maine 1/2 Marathon were finally posted! Yay! I was so excited to find a picture of me doing this race because my family wasn't able to be there to get photos. So, I plugged in my bib number only to find that "There are no images currently available". Seriously? NO images? NONE? ugh. I scrolled through the lost and found thinking maybe, just maybe, I could find myself. But no such luck. I swear to god, that I am always that girl who is NEVER in the picture. Race pictures, yearbook, whatever. Or I'm the one whose head is behind that other girl. It's like I never really have any proof that I ran that race. Same thing happened in college for tennis. Somehow, we never had a team photo and my face was not on the page at all. Unlike Silly Girl Running, who thinks she messes up race photos, I am just absent from them. (and btw, she doesn't mess them up, she always looks super cute!) I should be called "Girl Who Runs but is Never in Photos".
I come up with the brilliant idea to search the bib number of the girl who came in just ahead of me to see if they got a photo of her. Of course, they did. I am off to the side, half cut off. But at least I am in the photo.... I will not order it, however. There is a better photo of me behind another girl who came in ahead of me, but I am not the main focus of that photo, so I probably won't order that one either. Here is the link if you'd like to see the wonderful photos I have to choose from:
I'm in blue. yay me. I promise that next big race that I am in, I am going to wear the most bright, garish, obnoxious outfit I can possibly dream up. There will be no way that the photographer will be able to miss me. I WILL have a decent professional race photo one of these days.
