You Talk Too Much - RunDMC

Ahhhh.  I'm 99% sure this would be the title of my biography if I had one.

This is what happens when you work from home and you have not yet mastered the art of talking to an eight pound dog.

But there's just too much going on in this brain of mine.

I swear, I cannot complete a proper sentence today. 

My friend "M" just brought me this:



How freaking thoughtful.  Got to love it & her.  Thanks MJ!!

I picked up Peanut from school a mere 15 minutes ago and she has already said to me, "Mom, you didn't get out today did you?"

I start on one thought then all of the sudden, I think of:


dirt
horses
pain
Being called "barbie".  If my  name was Barbie - that'd be fine.  But nope, it's not.
puking [could really live without this one]
blisters
heat [really? 86 in Prescott - come on!]
chafing
This so counts as 50 towards my 100 miles for Neil's VR.
relieving myself in front of horses and others
actually wearing a shirt for a race, run, adventure.  super weird.
music [iPod craps out on me {again} I swear I'm going right to the CEO of Apple]

I've bought enough Gu & protein bars to feed a smallish army [of one].

Oh, how I cannot wait to sit down at my computer Monday morning [possibly Sunday, if horses don't chew off my fingers] and write this race report and mark it "done".

Oh heck ya . . . . . I'll be wearing my buckle while typing.

Off bright and early tomorrow to, "GET ER' DONE" Emz style.

You guys rock.

RWBOB- day. Made.

RunningLaur said...

1. YOU'RE going to rock :)

2. On my run last night I was thinking that I will personally deliver running goods to your home just so you don't have to deal with the guys at Roadrunner. Seriously. I'd do it. Those guys kill me - they need to be nicer to you.

Emz said...

RL - I'm converted to RD for sure. You'll never see me in a RRS ever again. You are the best!! :)

Best of Luck to you Em! And yes OF course this is good for the VR, AND if you wanted, this totally qualifies you for prizes, without taking another step all week!

Emz said...

Neil- hmmmmm tempting but I'd feel like a loser for not doing what I said I would. Sooooo assuming I don't break anything other than a few nails---you're getting the dang 100!!! :)

Karen R said...

One Crazy Penguin said...

Bummer, I couldn't find any flights out there. You know I so would have been running right next to you ;p

But seriously, you're going to rock this thing! I can't wait to read about how you earned that buckle with a huge smile on your face!

Silly Girl Running said...

Good luck and have fun! Can't wait to read about it! :)

Kelly Leigh said...

the fact that you are even attempting to do this blows my mind. But I know you will finish which blows my mind even more. Good luck!

Jamoosh said...

Go kick horse butt.

Big Daddy Diesel said...

Good luck!!!

And your Pukie Award is up

Laura said...

You rock...seriously. These things you think/worry about...I do this before my regular long run:
barf, blister, chafing, heat..
I don't have to worry about dirt and horsies though..
HAVE A GREAT TIME!

Elizabeth said...

Good luck, can't wait for the race report and expected no less of you wearing it while writing the report. Actually, hitting some keys with it to show total domination is expected.

Emz said...

BDD. - no freaking way. Okay. This rocks. I have a pukie award?!? :) Y O U rock. Thank you!!

Jennifer said...

50 miles!! Holy cow. You are going to do well, I know it! Make sure you post images of that belt buckle! Yea! Have a great, no, super great race!

Quinton J said...

That horse doesn't stand a chance.

Matty O said...

Do you own a running shirt?!?!? Shocking!

Girl, you rock. I love that you are going through with this. Don't scare me away from attempting this same feat with your race report :)

You will be fine. Head up. Run proud and remember to have fun. That is the reason we do this after all RIGHT?! For the adventures and the medals.

Have an AwEsoMe weekend girl!

Christina said...

Matty-O . . I know, I had to search long and hard for a top. I settled on my Ramones "runner, runner, runner" one. May have to take it off just for fun.

Harold said...
