"She's Actual Size" - TMBGiants

Dawn.


I. heart. Dawn.  Click on her name. [yes, now]

This girl is running 12 marathons in 12 months.

incredible.

I met up with her & Slowmo in Tucson [I sadly only saw Slowmo for a few brief moments but he'll be back to Rock RnR AZ . . . one day soooooooooooon!! ;) ]

I didn't even get a photo with him. boooooo!  You rock SlowMo!!

Found Dawn at the expo.  Loved her immediately.

You bet cha, we met up for dinner with all my fam.  awesome.

Honestly, the best dinner [company, conversation, laughs] I've had in the longest freaking time.

She's not short.  I just like love my heels [yes, even, on race day eve].
Ya, know when you meet someone and the very next day you [and your mom are inviting them to stay at your house come January].  It was one of "those" meet-ups.

Dawn, see you [ & CO ] in January.

happy. emz

Oh and you bet cha I bought this photo.  My parents & family are so proud of me and my adult humor.

I'll get you all a better/clearer version when it arrives but until then . . . .

flip. off.  X.  2






Take.
That.Tucson.
Marathon.

I'll be back, next year.
For the last 10 minutes you owe me.

Kovas Palubinskas said...

If you were mature I'm sure I wouldn't even like you, except for the Fruity Pebbles thing.

Kovas Palubinskas said...

I'm sure you're just happy to see me, but is that a FUD in your tights?


Okay, I'm all caught up on comments after yesterday's fiasco.

Emz said...

kovas - 1st comment - funny.

2nd - just uncalled for. grow up. we don't use potty talk here.

Kovas Palubinskas said...

Bonus response comment:

Sorry, I'll try to do better next time, mother.

Natalie said...

I'd say that after what you tried to do to (or on) Tuscon at mile 11 and then did at mile 19.2, you're pretty much even steven for next year:).

Emz said...

Nat - two days in a row. YAY me! [seriously. seriously]. and ummm you might be right. ;)

Kovas - I prefer "mom"

FRANKENJEN -you rock.

Tay Talk said...

Every since I ran 2 marathons in 2 weeks my feet shunned me from ever running a full marathon again. [Little do my toes know I'll probably do it again soon :)]

*HIGH FIVE to Dawn for doing what I will never do!

Jamoosh said...

Dawn is my new favorite blonde. Sorry - you brought this on yourself...

Emz said...

Mooshy- I'll take 2nd to dawn any day.

Rae said...

Mel -Tall Mom on the Run said...

I DWARF everyone, Imagine if I wore heals.. WOW

I love love it when I meet people who I instantly connect with..

LOL I can never flip people off, even in my car I hide it under the dash..

Emz said...

Rae. It's actually peanuts friend but good enough for me. :)

Mel-yay! Hi!! :) you. Are. A. Better. Person than me. It was a FIRST for me. I think I've maybe flipped the bird only one other time. [but it was at the pita, so that's probably really bad]. ;)

racing dawn said...

I so heart you too. You're pretty much not getting rid of me now...

And the pic...seriously all I can see are those abs woman.

And actual size is short. I think Peanut will have me by the next Holualoa...

And I will be investing in a serious set of heels before January 16...

Emz said...

Big Daddy Diesel said...

Even though he will deny it and never admit it, but I bet anything Pita shed a little tear of joy and said "Thats my girl!!" with that picture.

Marlene said...

The photo is PRICELESS.. although I admit, I am far too distacted by those abs to notice the birds!

Jen said...

Teamarcia said...

Yes...that photo deserves to be an 8x10! But I am a little jealous...when am I being invited to your house? Hmmm???

XLMIC said...

How cool you all met up!

As for the 'fingers' ... lol... that is essentially what I said to my fiancé at mile 25 in my first marathon... angrily, not playfully.

The Green Girl said...

Love the attitude, girl!

Johann said...

Of course you'll be back, awesome! I like that photo. Dawn is really special. I hope one day I can meet some of these special bloggers at a race somewhere.

Anne said...

Haha! Love it! :)
How cool that you and Dawn got to meet up...would have loved to be there :)

Sorry I'm late on the congrats...I know you wish you had run faster (and you will!), but you are so freaking speedy...I dream of running only an hour slower than you!

Mark said...

Nothing quite says "I'm an adult" like flipping off a camera during a run.

By the way—those shirts are freakin' CLASSIC!

5 Miles 2 Empty said...

Yeah, I was too busy looking at your ABS to notice the two birdies....

Silly Girl Running said...

@ 5 miles 2 empty: +1 - those abs are insane!

Yay for new meaningful friendships!
Triple yay for flipping the photographer. Ha! :)
