Mid Week Musings 7

Maybe I should rename these mid week rambles?  At least this one is actually going up mid-week and not on Thursday or Friday.   🙂

How is January almost over?  Seriously I need more time!

Everyone’s posting their race schedules for the year and I’m over here like I should have bought a Powerball ticket.   😅  My race account is looking pretty sad.   While I am wishing for the impossible- how about more vacation time too?

I’ve been given the opportunity to come back as a SLO Marathon ambassador for 2016!  Woo hoo!!!  More on that soon!

I’m not a football fan but Denver making it to the Super Bowl is making me nostalgic.   Growing up we had one of those huge satellite dishes.  You know the ones that had to move in order to watch a different station?   Anyways, for whatever reasons we only got Denver stations.   The Broncos and the Rockies were the sports teams popular in our house.  Combine that with the Broncos being my grandfather’s favorite football team and I am feeling the urge to rock some blue and orange at Surf City.  #nostalgicfan

Last Wednesday’s weird, sick feeling makes more sense now.   My last visit with my gastro resulted in a new medication to try.   New to me and him- he had never prescribed it before.  I was the guinea pig.  Oh boy.  Other than any possible warnings about driving or sleepiness, I try to avoid reading the potential side effects of a new medication.   I like to avoid any chance to think myself into a side effect and just give it a week or 2.   But I have been having some issues and felt kind of off so I read all the documentation yesterday.   I could check off more than a few boxes on the list.  The most interesting one though?  “Feeling drunk”  What?!    Once I made sure I read that right, some things from the last 2 weeks made a little more sense.  Yeah- bye bye pills.

Last week I shared that my local pizza place knows me by name.  Friday night I picked up a pizza on the way home and they told me I am their #1 customer.  Ummmm, yay?  I only ate pizza once last week by the way.

Another episode of Z Nation got me through a treadmill run tonight.  A very slow treadmill run but it’s the miles that count right?   I’ve found the only way I can run on the treadmill without any weird aches is to either run very slow or very fast.  Tonight was a slow one.  I felt kind of awkward watching a zombie show while running though.

Lastly, I’m sure most of you have heard about the dog that bandit-ed a half marathon but my mother made sure to share it to my Facebook feed today.   With a comment that the dog is faster than me.  Which is true.  I still love the story though.   ☺

Hit me with your random!

Are you watching the Super Bowl?

Anyone else remember those satellite dishes?

  1. Haha no worries on the race front. As of right now I’m only signed up for 3 races and two of them are not until fall! For once, I’m really enjoying my lack of racing though so I’m going with it 😀
    Also I’m so excited for the Super Bowl mostly because I like BOTH teams playing!! Although I will say I have to officially root for the Panthers because that’s been my bf’s favorite team since he was young and they have yet to win a Super Bowl! Hopefully it’s a close, exciting game 😀


    1. I only signed up for Surf City and am waffling about all the rest! So many look great but they are so pricy!
      I hardly ever pay attention to football but what I’ve seen in the past week makes me think the Broncos are in for a rough game. I’ll be watching from the hotel so hopefully it’s a decent tv!! 🙂


  2. I will be watching the Superbowl, actually. I got invited to a viewing party, and honestly, I’m more excited about the food and the company than the football, especially now that the Pats are out. Although I too have a soft spot for the Broncos. My uncle lives in Colorado and he was SO excited the last time they won the Superbowl.


    1. That’s what I looked forward to most as a kid- the whole family got together and we had a ton of awesome food. I’ll still be in Huntington Beach so I haven’t worked out how I am watching yet. 😦 I will be very excited though if the Broncos can pull a win. 🙂


  3. Those pills sound super sketchy. I used to take migraine meds that made me feel drunk and it was no fun. I probably won’t watch the Super Bowl… no one I know is having a party because the Pats aren’t in it, and I can’t really be arsed to watch football most of the time anyway. I’ll probably be a nerd and read 🙂


    1. Right? What kind of medicine leaves you feeling intoxicated?! Honestly if the Broncos weren’t in I wouldn’t care. But even with that I will probably be reading or something else. I won’t exactly have optimal viewing options in Huntington Beach.

  4. Exciting race ambassador opportunity! I’m looking forward to a fun racing year for sure! I’ll probably also try for the lottery & run the Marine Corps Marathon in October…4th time running it. If you run it 5 times you become a lifetimer so working my way into that!


  5. That dog story is the best!!! Dogs are so awesome – running 13.1+ with no training, and faster than most humans! geez. Must have been fun for him! lol


  6. My race schedule is kind of sad looking myself. I have exactly two races on the schedule that I am signed up for. I just feel unmotivated to race. Not unmotivated to run though. I was feeling that way for awhile but the itch is back now 🙂 Hopefully the urge to race will return soon too!!
