Run This Town

So I signed up for this yesterday.

So who's comin'?

Come on!

If it was this much fun last year:


WHY NOT?!

Trying to put together a little "meet-up" party. [Friday, January 14th or whenever we can get the most people out!]

Leave a comment or email me.  Let me know if you are coming!

And Ummmm Happy Canadian Turkey Day?!  I have a [blonde] story about this but . . . maybe another day.

I would love to run on the 14th in AZ (just so I could meet Adam. Oh, and maybe you too), but I'll be running the Houston Marathon two weeks later. And while I have done back to back marathon weekends in the past, it's probably not such a good idea coming off of foot surgery.

Emz said...

Mooshy - come on!! I'll run w/only one shoe on if you come.

Matty O said...

Soooo you had abs a year ago too?! I thought those things were a recent addition?!?!?!?!?

You have intimidated me into not signing up. I haven't seen my abs since high school. No joke.

Emz said...

Matty-o. I don't believe it. That's just a lame excuse.
Come on!!!!!!!

RunningLaur said...

I'm not planning to run RNRAZ, but I'm in for any sort of meet up! I'll probably be out there cheering too - if I can be up early enough to catch you speedy speedy runners at the front!! :)

Allison said...

i.want.your.abs

Emz said...

Yay RL!!

Allison- day. Made. You. Don't. Want. My. Right. Thigh. & sorry they come as a package. ;) you are too nice.

Kovas Palubinskas said...

So if I say yes you'll pay for my entry, pay for my trip, put me up at a nice hotel and will buy me a new race outfit? I'm definitely considering it.

Emz said...

Sorry you lost me at race outfit. I was good until then. ?!

Matty O said...

Kovas, she will buy you a Neon Green sports bra and spandex tights. Don't let her buy you the race day attire ok?

Emz said...

How's pink?!
I don't like copy cats.

Matty O said...

EMZ, do you know you have a follower by the name of "Chicken Underwear"?

I am kind of jealous. What is it you do to attract these followers?

Emz said...

Get out!!
Seriously?!

That is the coolest ever!
Chicken underwear----you rock.
I'm going to change my name to "Chonie Emz"

Kovas Palubinskas said...

So you're saying there's a chance then?

Matty O said...

Yeah actually they are number 266 I guess, they are the last person on your followers tab.

Unfortunately they do not have a blog... sooo I can't contact them!

Emz said...

As long as you wear the bib # across the bra top.
And change your name to kovas chicken bra.

Kovas Palubinskas said...

He does have a blog - What You Do Not Know Because You Are Not Me! I think I prefer Kovas Chicken Panties

Emz said...

Kovas. Dead. P word?! Really?!

Emz said...

Chicken underwear - I do apologize. Umm good blog advertising?! I hope. ;)

Patrick Mahoney said...

Oh cool. It's the black running tight and arm sleeve posse rolling through. Well played.

Patrick Mahoney said...

Kovas we should do it dressed up as Bataman and Robin. I'll even be Robin if you want so we can avoid the uncomfortable argument.

Ed said...

Can you please teach me how to get sick abs like yours (and please don't tell me I need to do a 50-miler before that can happen)?

Emz said...

Partick so your "in". You'd be a better robin, says me.

Ed - nope. Just eat in n out once a week. ;)

Kovas Palubinskas said...

My bad. I will really try not to write panties again.

Stacie said...

I would LOVE to come. If only I could somehow get paid for all my miles so I could fly over there. My goal is to run several Rock-n-Roll's next year. A run in the sun would be great after the monsoon rains in Portland yesterday.

Leah B. said...

This would be awesome and I wish I could but that's the Disney Marathon weekend so I'll be in FL. Have a grand time. It looks like it'll be fun!

AM-GoalsfortheWeek said...

I did that race ~6 years ago. it was my first 'race' ever getting into the running world. it was pre-kids when we could do getaway wknds like that;-)

it's a great one! Don't think i'll be there...but i'll be rootin' for ya then;-)

Kovas Palubinskas said...

Not sure I'm the Batman type, but I guess that outfit would give me Em-like abs so that's a bonus.

Emz said...

Stacie-yes it is the perfect race conditions!! We don't even know what the word "rain" means here & don't worry none of us have a clue as to what kovas is saying.

Erika said...

What race is this?? And the chatter is right...your abs are sick! Seriously.

Rae said...

Thank you for the awesome ab pic!

Emz said...

Rock N Roll AZ!!!!!! 1/16/2011!!
;)

Karen R said...

That sounds fun! My first half marathon is the RNR LA in 2 weeks. Would be fun to do the AZ one in Jan! Hmmm...I may just do it!!

Besides, would love to see Kovas in a pink bra top :)

Foges said...

im so behind the times on all these comments! I remember HS when I had abs... not so much these days! I would love to do the AZ marathon but i'm about 1600 miles away!

termite said...

i'm trying to get past those awesome abs. damn.
ok. back to the gym! ;)

misszippy said...

Can't tell you how much I love Arizona, especially in January when it sucks here. If I do Boston though, that's too much cash outlay for races this year! But Kovas in the underwear or tights/pink bra are certainly a temptation...

I think you have a 12-pack, not just a six-pack.

Megan said...

Sounds fun. I wish I could join y'all.

Zaneta said...

your abs make me JEALOUS!! I am now going to go do another hardCORE workout...

Sammie Girl said...

Sorry, I will recovering from the Goofy Challange!
But I hope you get a bunch of people together and have a ball!

Slomohusky said...

EMZ - chicken underwear found me first about two years ago.

How do I get Abs like you? I am not sure whose are cooler - yours or Kara Goucher?

Candice @ I Have Run said...

I am seriously going to think about doing the half. My parents live in Queen Creek, so I would have a free place to stay. And who doesn't like Arizona in January??

Her Name is Rio said...

I don't think I'm running RNRAZ this year, but let me know about the meet up. If I'm in town, I'd love to be there!

Scott Keeps Running said...

Who's comping my flight????

:D

Emz said...

Scott- kovas.

Erika said...

One of my friends just signed up last week and is trying to talk me into coming along...

Emz said...

Erika-----yay!! Come!!!! :) you know you wanna!!!!

Slomohusky said...

oh the race - phx pf chang rr was fun last year. yet, the course (HM) was not the most - for lack of a better word - scenic. I am doing Vegas and Crystal Cove Trail again the month prior then Disneyworld Full and Carlsbad HM for Jan. Sorry not this year. I did like the finish at ASU. You can or anyway else join me for any of the ones I just listed though?

Aimee said...

I'm doing the race! Woohoo! I would love to meet up with you and some other bloggers!

Emz said...

Aimee awesome!! Sooooo excited!!

Silly Girl Running said...

Honestly, your abs; wow! How the heck did you manage to get such abs?

Johann said...

As always I have to say...if I were close I would be there in a flash. One day I'll run my race there, one day...

Marlene said...

Thanks for the shout out!! Come on, tell the story!!! :)

Sarah said...

If I were a runner and thought I could enter Arizona without dying, I would totally go. :-D

Big Daddy Diesel said...

Oh mannnn!!!!!!! Figures that the year my folks want to visit me, instead of me coming to see them is this year, when I go visit them next time, we should do lunch

Amy said...

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to you too! Come on - Tell the story!

Emz said...

BDD - lunch. Yes. Yes. Yes.

Story is too blonde. Blonde. Blonde. ;)

Kevin and Kim Partridge said...

If I didn't like you so much, I would be fuming that you chose THAT picture to show the world. Not that I can compete with your abs or anything, but COME ON! I'm going to find an app for blurring my face and then switching midsections.

Kevin and Kim Partridge said...

P.S. How fast you planning on running this? Pacer girl may be out of the question if you are going for PR.

Kevin and Kim Partridge said...

P.P.S. You won't even know I'm there. Nobody else will either. It takes A LOT of confidence to run next to you. I'll be quiet now. I will TRY to be quiet now.

shellyrm aka jogging stroller mama said...

All I have to say is...abs. I.want.some...(without all the work);-)

JenniferLeah said...

RNRAZ is on "my list" and my fav cuz just happens to live there. just saying. it could happen. this year or next.

oh and Emz. yeah~I just saw your awesome abs on Jamoosh's hardcore site yesterday and wow. now this pic today. i am in awe.
you are now (officially) my hero.

*bowing down*

you. totally. rock.

Emz said...

You guys must see things I don't see. Need to know what kind of monitors you use.

:) thank you.
