Super Bon Bon -SC

Love Soul Coughing - great running music.

Me = E.T.  . . . . is . . . .

Registered for the

Tucson Marathon.

12/12/10.

My [$49 purchased] profile picture was taken at this very marathon last year.

I really was THAT happy at 25.2.


How can I say "no"?!

What?!  You're running it too!?

That's Great! Love Peanut's poem! She's so sweet.

RunningLaur said...

How can that photo make ANYONE not want to run the race? :) Def worth the outrageous $49.

One Crazy Penguin said...

I would pay any amount of money to be *that* happy *that* late into a marathon!

Lesley @ racingitoff.com said...

That is a fab photo.

I am thinking since my first marathon is 12/5, being ready for a second on 12/12 is probably out of the question...

But I do have my thinking cap on for a destination race next year in either summer or fall... preferrably summer to escape the unbearable Texas heat.

Rae said...

I love that pic! You look awesome and super happy! Perfect race photo!

ac said...

move aside and let the man go through...

Adrienne said...

At mile 25.2?! Awesome. Love peanuts letter. Very cute.

Emz said...

AC - awesome. Love your comment.

The photo should be on the cover of Runners World! Great pix EMZ. $49? Really? Cheap? Maybe I should look into it?

Tom said...

Super Bon Bon is also on my MP3 player. I'm jealous of your ablility to run so many marathons all over the place.

Caratunk Girl said...

That is such an awesome picture, you look so happy, it is awesome. Also I am jealous of those abs, you are rocking it girl! :)

Slomohusky said...

sorry emz I was reading your post too fast while walking and chewing gum at the same time ;). I am guessing the photo was 49 not the registration for the race. Although not 49, still I am interested will see. There is no course map or elevation at the website for the Full. Is it down hill mostly?

Emz said...

Slowmo - too funny. I ran the "new" course last year. This year they are going back to the course used in previous years. Apparently, it's better, easier & less hilly than 2009. I'll take that!! I took off over 40 minutes of my previous PR on this course last year [mind you my previous PR was my only other marathon AND 9 years ago]

Anyway.

I loved the course last year so if it's even better ...... I'm "in"!! :)

Emz said...

Oh & there IS a course map & elevation chart. Email me if you can't find it & I'll forward it to you. :)

Angie Bee said...

I have a pair of XS Sugoi arm warmers that I think you might like. They are white with big red cool looking spots on them. They were sent to me to try out and by Devon at Outside PR and we agreed that I would pass them on if they turned out to be too small for me. I thought of you :)
If you want them email me!

Karen R said...

sounds like a great race! And that picture is awesome.

I was always jealous of you in that pix because of your abs. But now I have another reason to be jealous also - smiling at 25 miles!

You make running look glamourous :)

Jason said...

Seriously mile 25.2 and not photoshopped? You don't even look like you are sweating. Did you stop and wipe your face and then start again?

At mile 25.2 which I vaguely remember I was a mess and could barely walk/run since both calves and quads were frozen.

I am jealous of that look and will be gunning for it on 12/5.

Emz said...

Karen R - even if it's .047% true. I love you for it.

Jason - go get your smile on. 12/5 is going to be awesome!!

Aimee said...

I think I would have bought that picture too! :)

Woohoo for another race!

Quinton J said...

Yes! Yes! I'm totally running it! I'm SO excited!

Char said...

I'd pay $49 for a pic of me if I looked that good in it. They could photoshop abs onto my running singlet!

Melissa Cunningham said...

totally agree with Karen R!!!
great pic! im also racing on 12/12,but a half mary!

you will do great this upcoming race,no doubt you will finish smiling!

Sarah said...

Hahaha!!! The Super Bon Bon song used to wake me up every morning for a while and drove me nuts because it was so loud. I like to wake up gently. I told Matt about it and he'll break out in "SUPER BON BON!" just to annoy me.

AM-GoalsfortheWeek said...

all righty chica! you go! bring it on. and then another marathon a month later? dang.

love your profile pic btw!! so worth the $49! really;-)

Her Name is Rio said...

I wouldn't have imagined that picture was at 25 miles! Happy Run!

Gracie (Complicated Day) said...

You are very beautiful. I would have paid $149 for that picture, and I'm a cheapskate!

Julie @ "Hotlegs Runner" said...

your body is insane! when will I ever look ripped like you???!!! I would pay more to have a body like that!

kizzy said...

You looked so pretty in that pics. Congrats.!

Silly Girl Running said...

I still can't get over your abs! How did you get such abs??? ;)

misszippy said...

You are an endurance beast!

Steel Springs said...

That is a great photo! It makes me want to get out there and run it, too.

Jon said...

That is a GREAT race photo!

Johann said...

Nothing better than a happy marathon runner (maybe a happy ultra runner…?). That is a great photo, you are right, you can’t say no. Men can never look that good at 25.2.

Kovas Palubinskas said...

I'm so there! (Not really.)

Petraruns said...

Oh honey. Truly if I didn't love you I'd hate you. Not only are you gorgeous and do you have the most AWESOME abs in the world but you also are happy at mile 25.2? WHAT? Of course you need to go and run that thing. Walk in the park girl!

JenniferLeah said...

I'd pay $49 for that pic and put it up in my home gym as motivation!
gorgeous, just gorgeous!!
Happy Running :)

Jenn said...

Oh my! My marathon pics look like I'm in labor! You look awesome! Congrats on the registration. Good Luck!

Laura said...

GEEEEEEEEEEEZZZZZZZZ I hope to look that happy at 2.52miles!!

Marlene said...

I'd pay at least double for any photo of me looking like THAT! ;)

Exciting news on the next big race!

Kate said...

I would have never guessed that picture was taken at 25.2. Wow! You look A-Mazing, as always.

Can't wait to read all about your December marathon. Woo hoo!

Matty O said...

Q is a liar. Good luck!

Andrew Opala said...

That picture always makes me giggle ... (and touch myself in an impure manner)

Emz said...

Matty-O ... No. No. Say it's isn't so.
BTW, I'm not that blonde. But thanks, [just in case, I was having a REALLY "off" day] ;)

So you & H are coming, right?!

shellyrm aka jogging stroller mama said...

Oh what I'd give to be in AZ now. For several reasons. Only one would be running.

Quinton J said...

Matty-O...that hurts. Deep down in my soul...it hurts.

Andrew...STOP THAT...you could go blind.

E - I woulda' paid $1000.

Big Daddy Diesel said...

Does thinking about racing count?

Candice @ I Have Run said...

That picture was worth every penny. And I think I might get more excited when you sign up for another race than when I do.

Jamoosh said...

Just one more marathon you'll have to run without spanking my ass!

Dash said...

Good luck, this looks like a great race, I'd love to do the half one year!! ;) You look ab-erific in your pic! ;)
