Ah the good ole City Sports shirt. I bought this right before I moved, actually because it got cold and I had no proper running clothes while I was in between the apartment and the house.
I have to admit, I don’t actually miss Silver Spring. Mind you, I’ve barely been in Arlington for a month but I don’t miss the things I thought I would: easy metro access, Whole Foods. You know what I miss? Rock Creek Park. It’s a lot harder to get to from down here (yeah, okay, I haven’t actually tried). Oh and not paying for utilities. Or having to google whether I am capable of installing a new basement floor.
Running this week, by the way, has epically SUCKED. I haven’t been feeling 100% and it came through in the running. I thought Monday was gonna be it but no.
Possibly the slowest run I’ve done in quite some time. I was doing a new route up in Gaithersburg and new routes always slow me down a bit. Wearing the Newtons didn’t help. But I just felt sluggish and awful.
And then my run this morning was a bit better feeling but I was on familiar ground:
Tomorrow is a longer run, hopefully it get’s better.
But now… for this weekend’s well wishes!!!!
Melissa! MARATHON!!!!!!! I am not a hugger but if I could reach you through tumblr and give you a hug right now I would. ROCK IT!
Trent! I hope your marvelous marathon training pays off for a maaaarvelous marathon!
That’s all I recall, who’d I miss?
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
They ranked this just for you. It’s cold, it’s been snowing, another 14” scheduled for this weekend. Mt Rose is ready. Northstar is ready. Heavenly and Squaw are ready. Your trip back home is looking mighty fine.
TWO WEEKS FROM TODAY!!!

1. What’s the worst episode of your favorite TV show?
Woah, curveball right in the first question!
There are a few episodes in season 3 of Battlestar Galactica where I. Just. Do. Not. Care. They are annoying and filler-y. If you haven’t seen the show and you start watching, DON’T GIVE UP! It get’s better!
2. Favorite theme park?
Psh. Harry Potter World. OBVIOUSLY. Because it’s like you are IN HARRY POTTER
3. You’ve just won hundreds of millions of dollars in the lottery! What’s the most impractical thing you’ll do with the money?
4. Which is your least favorite household chore to do?
I hate vacuuming. I can’t even tell you why. Maybe it’s because it doesn’t feel like you are getting anywhere? And how can you tell if it’s clean or not???
5. What was the last live performance (musical, play, concert) you saw? How was it?
I saw Fitz and the Tantrums and Capital Cities. It. Was. AMAZING. I love love love concerts and being on the floor and feeling the electricity of a good show. This was probably my second favorite concert of all time (first still being Cobra Starship and Metro Station. I’m a sucker for rock-pop).
6. What’s your favorite thing to cook for other people?
Let’s say baking shall we? I’m not a fan of cooking for other people because they tend not too be as big fans of kale as I am. I bake some kick-ass oatmeal raisin cookies if I do say so myself.
7. What’s your favorite thing for other people to cook for you?
Food. For reals, if you are cooking for me, I pretty much love you already. More specifically, it depends on the person: I love my dad’s baby back ribs and split pea soup. My Oma’s potato dumplings and goulash. If my boyfriend cooked anything for me ever, I would love it.
8. If you were to listen to a song on repeat for the rest of today, which song would it be?
9. Who’s your favorite fictional character?
Totally predictable but definitely Harry Potter. We grew up together (I started reading the series when I was 10 and our ages pretty much coincided with every book release).
10. Fill in the blank: right now I want to eat bacon-wrapped _________.
I’m gonna bend this one a little: but bacon with toast and baked beans would be AMAZING right now. I’m talking real hammy bacon too. None of this thin sliced crap. Proper English bacon.
11. Who on your Christmas list is the hardest to shop for?
EVERYONE. I am the WORST PRESENT SHOPPER EVER. I feel so much pressure and I never know what to buy and then I read into it too much and it’s just THE WORST. I’m stuck on a couple of people right now. People that I’ve known for years too. UGH.
