Science.

Me: So this morning, out of nowhere, I pulled ahead and was running at the front of the back of the pack! (instead of the very back, which is where I usually shuffle along)

Bestie/Tri-Coach: Well, if you think about it, the Front of the Back of the Pack (FOBOP) is really the back of the middle of the pack (BOMOP)…So BOOM! Congrats BOMOP!

Me: Who knew that losing weight and running regularly would ACTUALLY make me faster!?!  Sounds silly!

B/TC:  Yes, it is basic Science. I hear they are going to cover it on the next episode of Cosmos.



This i my favorite .gif of all time.  That red panda is so dramatic.  He reminds me of everyone I work  with. hahahaha.

Spring has sprung!
This is my favorite tree in my neighborhood.  There is only one like it and it is just lovely.  when I walk the beast after work the sun shines through it and it is just breathtaking.  
I kind of want to come in the dead of night, dig it up, and move it to my yard.  Is that illegal?  I’m guessing yes.

I almost forgot the other amazing part of this weekend! I swung by Charming Charlie for the first time and Holy S it was amazing.  These two infinity scarves (perfect weight for spring) were 2 for $20.  And yes, those are bicycles. I’m swooning over both. SWOONING.

My weekend was amazing.  Things that are missing from this collage: surprise trip to tour a chocolate factory.  Yeah, just like Willy Wonka’s without the chocolate river.ALSO…Broke out the firepit and had mulch laid by some high school boys for CHEAP. Dreading Monday, but what a fine ass weekend.

Today was the goal race for the 5K program I have been coaching.  It went great!  It was hilly as F (which I knew going in) and the weather was TERRIBLE (The picture out my front door doesn’t do it justice.  It was pouring down rain and there were 20mph winds…now it is snowing here…in Maryland…in April…over it).  My group did GREAT!  I even ran into an old friend from High School (who blew past me running the 10K).  It was a tough race, but it was so nice to round out the program with my group.
Afterwards there was a brunch…WITH CAKE…to celebrate the running club’s birthday!  Who doesn’t love birthday cake at a race!  
I followed up with run with a really long bubble bath that didn’t sufficiently warm me up.  As such, I was forced to take a nap as my bed is the warmest place in my house.  #NotComplaining

Confession

I just washed my hair with Irish Springs mens body wash because I was too lazy to get out of the shower and find a new bottle when I realized I was out of shampoo.

#NotTHATAshamed



And just like that, I found my anthem.
