Random Friday Facts

1. This is my 199th post. I had to throw something up here so I can recap my T2 runners running MCM as my 200th. It’s a big deal!

2. I thought A LOT about making my 200th post the one in which I officially retire from blogging. But then Katie introduced me to Get Off My Internets, and I realized I’m not alone in all the things I hate about the blog world.

3. And don’t get me wrong, of course there are many blogs I love and friends I’ve made through this one that keep it worthwhile. But I think a lot of healthy-living bloggers have eating disorders. And if I listened to my body as much as they seem to, I would probably just sit on the couch about 20 hours a day.

4. Though I totes listened to my body this morning and slept through my tempo workout. (I’m lazy.)

5. In case you hadn’t noticed, my facts aren’t random. They can’t be! I’m not a computer.

6. I just looked something up in the AP Stylebook so I could comment about it on another blog.

7. I know how hard it is to keep posts completely error-free and that typos happen to everyone. But goddammit, how hard is it to use the right word?

8. I’m kind of sad that I’m not running a marathon on Sunday. But I’m glad that I can skip workouts when I want! (See #4.)

9. Though I’m signed up for a lot of races in 2012. That’s what 6 months free of injury will do to a girl.

10. Has anyone else noticed that That Thing You Do! is on the radio in stores all the time now? No? Just me?

11. I almost bought a house last month. Then I had a lot of panic attacks about it and let it go.

12. I just took a break from typing this to register for another spring race.

13. I went rock climbing last night! It wasn’t as fun as I remember it being.

14. I’m going to be Katniss Everdeen for Halloween. I’ve been waiting to be her for a year! It’s the one reason I’m glad I’m not doing a marathon on Sunday.

15. Good luck to everyone racing this weekend! I’ll be out at mile 11 and 16 of MCM and cheering loudly for you!

  1. Whoa! A long-awaited post! 🙂

    I TOTALLY wanted to be Katniss for Halloween this year and even did a practice braid the other day to make sure it could work… and then I realized I didn’t have anything else for the costume. Can you include pics as part of your MCM recap? Thanks!


  2. That’s such a good costume idea!
    If you like GOMI, you should also read the organic onion.


  3. I need to sign up for some 2012 races. I am committed to absolutely nothing after January 8.

    Missed you this morning, but I’m glad that you and your body enjoyed some extra sleep!

    Dont stop blogging! I do agree that a lot of bloggers seem to have eating disorders, and this is coming from someone who actually did have an eating disorder in her early 20’s. But anyway, i will be cheering tomorrow too. Hope to see you!


  5. I tried to look at GOMI and I’m going to admit I’m too old to understand it. Whatever. I checked out St. Luke’s, looks beautiful! Speaking of eating disorders, I just opened the ginormous bag of Halloween candy I got from Costco. I hope there’s some left when the kids get here! See you out there tomorrow, Good luck with your team!!


  6. I missed this on Friday! I love all 10 of these things. I also love how GOMI seems to exist inside our e-mail threads, all 9456989 of them.
