It was a Thursday

Thursday didn't really go as planned. Work brought surprises. After work brought traffic problems, a missed running group and lightning (yikes). This type of day (it's a darn Thursday again) leads to randomness.
  • On this crazy day, I got some pretty rockin' news: I'm sweating pink. What does that mean? It means I'm a Sweat Pink Ambassador. So, what does that mean? It means that I'll sweat hard, play hard and inspire those around me to achieve their best selves. Read more about it here.

  • I didn't consider myself a Beyonce fan before Sunday. I liked some songs, but was not overly crazy about her (unlike her husband, Mr. Carter ... love some Jay-Z). Then, the Super Bowl halftime show happened. She was incredible, amazing, fabulous. She sang live, and she rocked it. And she indulged me a Destiny's Child reunion. Thanks, Bey. 
  • Speaking of Bey and Jay, they were in New Orleans the weekend before the Super Bowl. So was I. Where's the meet-up, folks? Or, more realistically, a sighting. I want to improve my celebrity sightings. Right now, I've got a blurry photo of Vanilla Ice. That's it. Jay would have been a major rapper upgrade.
  • Everyday, at least four times per day, I'm looking up at seven flights of stairs. The elevator is being replaced in our building. With a dog, this makes for lots of trips up and down. They estimate it will be out for four to six weeks. Nine days down (and up)!
  • The Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon is this weekend! I loved this race last year, and I can't wait to rock it again. From an expo on a Major League Baseball field to bands along the course, this race really does rock. And, the name includes my favorite word: rock.
  • Stay tuned next week for my very first and very awesome giveaway! Hint: if you like running and are female (sorry, dudes), this giveaway is going to rock your world! (A badge in the right sidebar is even more of a hint.)
Do you like Beyonce? Did you like the Super Bowl halftime show? Do you like Jay-Z? Any good celebrity sightings? Have you rock a Rock 'n' Roll race? What did you think?


  1. So many things to say!
    1. Four to six WEEKS without an elevator?? You are going to get some serious cross training in!
    2. CONGRATS on being a Sweat Pink ambassador! That rocks! You are definitely an inspiration!
    3. Another half? Look at you go!
    4. Vanilla Ice most definitely does not equal Jay Z.
    5. Your pup is ADORABLE!!

  2. Congrats on being a Sweatpink Ambassador :) Have fun at the race this weekend, those RnR races look like lots of fun!

  3. Congrats on being a SPA! I just became one too and found your blogging searching for some other newbies :) What a cute pup you have! And I thought the half-time show was decent but there is just something about me that isn't in to Beyonce. She looked great though.

  4. Congrats on the #sweatpink!!! :)
    I like Beyonce. I'm not a die hard fan, but she can put on a show that's for sure.
    I'll be at RnR and IronGirl as well :)

  5. Yay for sweating pink!!! That is awesome. Good luck with your race this weekend! One day I might actually make it to a RnR race I sign up for. I loved the half time show. Well more that I loved the Destiny's Child reunion. Awesome.

  6. Congrats on Sweat Pink!! :) Hope you rocked that race this morning!!! :)

  7. My best celebrity siting includes your favorite word. I was at Disney's Hollywood studios and as I was walking toward the Rock 'n Roller Coaster, Steven Tyler and a few body guards were walking away from the ride. It was before cool cameras on phones. I also rode an elevator with Paris Hilton and a body guard and my husband at a hotel once. I think it was the Tradewinds St Pete Beach. And I was a movie extra in White Palace, so we spent the day with Susan Sarandon and James Spader, but not really. Oh and I just remembered. Once when interning at Mercury records I shared the ladies room with Vanessa Williams, and once when interning at Rolling Stone Magazine I saw David Bowie. He's short.

    1. You definitely win the best celebrity sightings award!


Comments rock!
