Why I Love Thursdays

Why?  I mean, the actual day itself is kind of weird; it's too early to celebrate the weekend, yet you're over the hump of the week, soooooo...


...but for the bloggie, it means that I can be completely random (like that's completely out of the ordinary).  So here you go -- a Thursday random dump of my week thus far.:)


1.  This guy is my latest superhero.  

2.  He keeps the park path nice and clear for me so I can easily take pictures run without several inches of snow.

3.  If you know me, you know that this post will eventually come down to food, so let's just get to it.  THIS WAS MY FAVORITE LUNCH THIS WEEK.  Perfect for a day that called for temps barely kickin' 20*F.  Trader Joe's -----------> you get me.

4.  Fave snack that my Cheerleaders found out about.  Oops.

 5.  I somehow kept these a secret.:)

6.  Winter makes me realize that I have serious #ponytailprobs.  My hair laying on my neck is not an option, and it's practically the only way I can wear it unless I have a hoodie that allows for the p-tail.

Plus, my head gets hot REALLY quickly while running, so running with a hood/balaclava/cap/hat is out of the question for the most part.

7.   More #ponytailprobs.  And I was just going to the store around the corner from the house.

8.   (back to food) YUMMY RUMMY IS BACK ON GRUBHUB!  And yesterday was the best day ever for me!

9.  Since the /R/iver /R/unners take the winter off (the track is completely covered in snow, and the park is closed -- no lights!), we drop the workout, keep the beer and pizza, and add "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia".:)  Greg and Harry usually do the beer thing.

10.  And sometimes Solemate Steph does my hair.  We have priorities.

11.  And just for funsies, I added one more to the usual Thursday Thoughts, and had to show you Women's Running highlighting my girl!  ONE MONTH TO GO, DR. DRE!<3

Happy ALMOST FRIDAY, friends!
Any big, exciting plans for the weekend?
-Harry and I are hoofin' it to AZ for a race weekend!

Favorite find from Trader Joe's?
-I have too many faves at this point.  A little redundant...

#Ponytail probs?
-Let's hug it out.


  1. Right now I am so over my hair. SO OVER IT. I want it chopped offffffff. But then again, I will leave it the length that it is if it means that Chicago will have the temperatures I am currently enjoying when we return. I do not envy those who are at home. Or the fact that it will be in the single digits on Monday. Chicago is an A$$hat.

  2. I hate hair on my neck in the summer, but in the winter I like it -- I get cold way too easily!

    There is a lot to like about TJs. I really do love the healthy 8 veggie mix -- makes it easy to get lots of veggies in my salads or my scrambled eggs (like this morning).

  3. So jealous that you get to go to AZ. Just in time for my PF to be quiet, the polar vortex returns this weekend. So much for my triumphant return to running. I'll just quietly suck it up in my thermoball and run. Brrrr.

    Good luck at the race!

  4. That would be pretty exciting to win a cookie! :)) And I love whoppers. :) Have a good day!

  5. I've all but given up on my hair at this point. I keep saying that I'm going to do something drastic to it, but I have no idea what. And then going through those awkward in-between stages while you're waiting for your hair to grow back is al little less than pleasant. But yeah... totally hear you on the hair probs.

    1. I'm lucky that my profession calls for a good amount of ponytail action.:\

  6. I would love Thursdays too if I lived your life LOL. My hair has been such a mess this winter. It's January and we should not have high enough humidity that my hair is frizzing.

    1. Frizzzzzz, I hear you! My hair hasn't been the same since I moved here from Texas -- it's kind of freaking out every winter.

  7. I need a haircut. The only ponytailprob I have is that it's too thick to stay up! Gah. LOL!
