Do you feel you deserve a reward for surviving the longest election run-up in the history of the world? Well Krispy Kreme has your back (and your ass and thighs).

To steal a line from the ridiculously awesome movie Airplane! Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue eating donuts.

If anything I think Jose Cuervo should get in on this. We all deserve a free we-survived-the-election margarita.

First of all, I feel great today. Seriously. By yesterday afternoon I wasn’t sore and had loads of energy. I’m waking up every morning, almost an hour before my alarm and I’m feeling RESTED. This is a good thing.

Also, I feel very good that I will NOT be running with a fanny pack, unlike SOME people I know...

My palBirdrunner has convinced me to sign up for the Jingle Bell Run here in Little Rock. It won’t be as cold as Fargo, ND … where our own Cinde is gonna be trotting away…but it won’t be warm here in Little Rock. Anyway, I don’t like cold and I don’t really like running, so this should be win-win for me. *rolling eyes*

I basically have 6 weeks to get ready. This is supposed to be a 9 week program. I bet I can take care of business…I know I can walk a 5K…my goal is to run it.

Snow Birds unite! In honor of our upcoming teeth chattering event, I give you: Snow Miser

This is from, hands down, THE VERY BEST CHRISTMAS MOVIE EVER TO BE CREATED: The Year Without a Santa Claus

It kicks Peanuts in the ass.

NOT RUNNING RELATED BUT AWESOME ANYWAY:

Well, today was day two of my life as a road runner. (Oh how I miss my easy elliptical machine at the gym!) There is something liberating about…okay who am I kidding. Running still sucks. A lot. And if you’re like me you have the double-whammy. What better experience is there then huffing and puffing and dragging your fat butt all over Orange County then doing it in with airborne allergies.

 

I had to buy a freaking fanny pack to hold my Puffs Plus. Yes, I am one of THOSE women. The best part? in an attempt to save my ego I decided to go to REI and buy it from there. Oh my gosh you have to go look at them. They are all HUUUUGE. There were two that were bigger then my purse and my purse can hold a full size three ring binder. I couldn’t bring myself to buy one of those obviously.

 

And I really wanted one with a water bottle thing, something to hold snacks, a swiss army knife, a small flint and some matches in case I need to start a fire…and then I remembered why I don’t shop at REI. I never need this shit (CZ does not camp–see aforementioned comment about horrible airborne allergies). But that’s what happens to me at REI. I suddenly want things like a camp stove and snow shoes and rapelling harnesses. Oddly enough it’s like my Target problem but more expensive.

 

I was lucky this time, I was able to make it out of the store alive and with only my one little Jansport “waist pack.” The good news? It was the lightest one that could fit my phone, etc. It was also the cheapest one. The bad news? I’m fat and I’m running on the street, which sucks and if that’s not bad enough I’m doing it with a fanny pack. Really is it even POSSIBLE to live that down?

You know youre jealous.

You know you're jealous.

For the love of pete, tell me I’m not the only one!
