The 80s

I would like to thank each of you for your kind words on my Chicago Marathon recap. I know that every race will not be like that one but I am going to savor in its awesomeness for a little while. If nothing else I hope that it encourages us all to dig deep and have faith in ourselves. We can do so much more than we think we can.

And now…

I’m about to share a picture with you that will either make you laugh your arse off or scare you away forever. This is me, my little brother and my little sister in 1987.

At least my sister was little enough to avoid sweaters but I’m pretty sure she is rocking some sweet corduroy in this one. So why I am bringing this one out? Because this weekend we will be bringing back the 80s at this bad boy

When my sister first told me about it I was kind of “meh” on it. Mostly because I hate Fiesta Island. Not kidding. I had a bad experience at the end of RNR SD 2010 and pretty much swore off running there ever again.

And then she reminded me it’s her first 10k.

Not the 80s

And tempted me with this sweet medal

So I’m all signed up on team Punky Brew-ster and have my hot pink ready to go. No ugly sweaters in this crew but I’m sure we’ll see plenty on the course. More importantly I can’t wait to see my little cross that finish line.

Have you run a 10k?

Any advice for my little sis?


I’m off to watch the GIANTS game but before I go wanted to share a pic of me and my friends from a dinner date last week

Spending time with girlfriends is really important to me.Ā  Getting to eat, drink and laugh without a care in the world is so much fun. FACT: there are just some things you can’t discuss with dudes. Thank you all for a fabulous night (even though I was a leeeeetle late)!

  1. It’ll be fun running with your sister! I haven’t been in any races yet but hope to get my first ones in next year.

    And your photo is not bad. Trust me. šŸ™‚

  2. Girls nights are oh so important! I’ve run 5ks and 15ks but not a 10k ever now that I think about it! Halfs are on the menu next for me! šŸ˜‰

  3. I think you need to re-enact that picture…Your brother could get a red Christmas sweater, your little sister could sit with her arms out and sweet boo face and you with your adorable smile. It would make a hilarious Christmas card.
    I almost signed up for this race, love the medal. Would loved to have met you. Good luck and have fun! xoxo

  4. Good luck to your, sis! After a bunch of 5ks this summer, I’m running my first 10K this weekend. Wish me luck!
