Potential Dilemma Could Be a Running Hazard

First things first: A cup of java with cool whip and an Olathe, KS weather check. Not looking good running peeps. 6am forecast is:

33 degrees with snow/wind with high of 41 degrees
80% chance of precipitation
20mph winds from NNE

This may be an event to remember. I need this run for many reasons and not necessarily the obvious.

Obvious would be:

  • I have it on my race calendar
  • I paid $60 + registration fees to particpate
  • I've blogged about it
  • I've got my bag almost packed, just need to find that other favorite sock
  • I've got plans to meet other blogging running friends
Unobvious would be:
  • Yesterday I ate a whole roll of Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies.
  • I bought a new gel pack.
  • Secretly I love snow, being cold and running in it
  • I want to see if these running bloggers really do exist.
  • I need some new bling and want to see how long I can wear my finishers medal before it turns my skin green.
  • I am in desperate need of something to blog about
  • I want to lose another toenail
  • I need another boy cut t-shirt
  • I need an excuse to shave my legs and...
  • I love chub rub!
On a serious note, my potential hazard is I have a very sick kiddo. He has only been to school for 3 hours this week and today's attendance is still up for debate. He is also supposed to wrestle in a big tournmant this weekend. All the weekend details have been worked out so everyone can be successful.

Sick Kiddo is up and .....

..... he's still sick.


Stay tuned .....

to see if sick kiddo wrestles AND if I shave my legs and head to Kansas anyways.

Today's workout is supposed to be: 1500 yd swim, 3 mile tempo run, abs.

hope the weather cooperates! Good luck this weekend, and make sure to report back if the bloggers are real :D Hope you find the sock, and the kiddo feels better soon!

Marlene said...

Isn't it spring?

Kim said...

Keep me posted girlie. Hope the McNugget gets better soon.

Enjoy that coffee. Whip cream...on the list of things to get.

Hey chica,
I say run the race JUST so you can have an excuse to shave your legs!! I think I need to get that done too! You do not want to see my legs right now!!

Whats wrong with your son?

And the weather could be a challenge but you thrive on challenges so you will run a great race!!!!


IzzyBubbles said...

Who needs to shave their legs when you're going to be wearing running tights??

Ah, I hope the weather works out for you. Welcome to crazy Kansas...58 degrees yesterday, winter storm warnings Friday and Saturday, and then 58 on Sunday. Makes sense, doesn't it?

Hope you have a great race this weekend! :) Hope the little guy gets better soon too... and you get to see if the other running bloggers exist! :)

Non-Runner Nancy said...

Philip said...

The Happy Runner said...

I love your unobvious list!

I hope it works out for you :-)

Missy said...

That totally blows, literally! I'm such a fair weather fan these days, it's bad.

Best of lucky with the icky kiddy.

I hope the weather holds out and you get this run in, nothing like getting all excited and then canceled.
I have my posting for foto friday scheduled to post by just include me in when you get yours up!
Have a great weekend and looking forward to hearing about the race!

stupid weather!! i won't believe it until I see it!! hope the kiddo feels better

Jo Lynn said...

The boy cut Tee is IT! Enough of a reason to go. We ALL need more of those, right??? ;)

Rookie on the Run said...

All of those reasons sound good to me... both the obvious and not so obvious! So shave those legs, race it, get your bling and have fun! Then come back and blog all about it.

I hope your son gets better quickly.
