"O.P.P." - Naughty By Nature

Things I'm loving today.

The picture my Peanut left by my bed last night. 

She had asked me about my marathon this weekend.  Told her it most-likely was NOT going to be my BQ like a man race but . . . . blah, blah, blah.....I will get it in 2011. 

She said, "Mom you are awesome.  you are awesome-ness."

I think that may be my "go to" line for this race.

I loved Ron's comment from yesterday, "I would wish you luck for the marathon but luck is for the unprepared."

I
freaking
love[d]
that.

I love that I get to meet a few of you tonight at dinner.

DRog.  you've. freaking. got. this.

Love this photo the Pita's mom took in Tucson.  Not totally sure why.  It's non-eventful.  But I love it.


Happy Friday to you all!

May Your Legs Move As If You Were Running On Air -
May The Wind Be At Your Back -

You will have a great race on Sunday and just know that no matter what you have a person cheering you on from Dallas and proudly saying that Run EMZ is my friend and she rocks.

Awsome-ness! Love it! Can't wait to hear about your race. You know you've Got It!

Jamoosh said...

Huh? You're coming over for dinner? Can we reschedule?

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

I think Peanut's statement of "Awesome awesome-ness" which is no doubt accurate, has to go on an EMZ t-shirt, no?

Go get 'em this weekend!!!

Caratunk Girl said...

Go get them Emz!!! You rock (are rockeness..Peanut, so cute!) and are full of awesome-ness.

Working on the Peanut version of telling you I am thinking of you and knowing that you are going to do great. Love the Zig Ziglar quote.

Karine said...

Love and good racing vibes from Jerusalem. Run Emz Run.

Kovas Palubinskas said...

Run it like the cops are chasing you, which may be the case if they look closely at some of your gun photos.

Kelly Leigh said...

Well I would have said "good luck" on your race. but I guess I will just say be the awesome-ness that you obviously are!

And I loved that last quote. Brilliant.

The Hungry Runner Girl said...

Best quote ever (the one about luck:) You are going to do so so good!! I am so happy for you!!! Love the picture peanut drew!

The Turtle said...

I hope you have a great run this weekend!

Big Daddy Diesel said...

Enjoy the Mary and Happy Friday

Rose said...

You ARE awesome-ness!

The Kornegay Family said...

You will be amazing! Remember what I asked for for my birthday on Sunday?!? :)

Just so you know, we've all wore our RUN EMZ shirts around, it's amazing what kind of attention the shirts get. I'll be wearing it proudly on Sunday . . . after church. (Or maybe I could wear it under my Sunday clothes?!?) :)

Love you!

ShebaJC said...

Just repeating what everyone else has said. Can't wait to hear how great your race was. You freakin' got this!

Laura said...

Rock it this weekend!!

ShutUpandRun said...

You are going to kill it this weekend. Be sure to email me your bib number so I can come up with some reason while that is the perfect number for you. Even if it's 911. Hoping it's not 666. Maybe it will be #1.

You. Guys. Are. The. Best.

skoval21 said...

You will do awesome this weekend!! I have to tell you I just got back from Disney and did the Goofy Challenge (13.1 on saturday and 26.2 on Sunday) + the 5k on friday! I thought of you everytime I say a photographer and you flipping them off! Can't wait to hear how you make out..It will be amazing!!

Weight Loss Mama said...

Can't wait to hear about the race!!

Marlene said...

Have a great time with the pre-race shenanigans and kick some booty at the main event!!!!

Molly said...

is that a blinged out Care Bear? Love it.

Good Luck this weekend!!!!!!!!

fancy nancy said...

It does look like a blinged out care bear! You are going to rock it! Great quotes!

Heather said...

The picture peanut gave you is a keeper!
The quote at the end is a good one.
Love your new "go to" line for the race!
Have an awesome weekend!!

jessithompson said...

In my house, we don't wish each other "Good Luck" it's "Good Skill"... because luck somehow implies you haven't worked your ass off for this and can't do it without a friggin' fairy.

Good Skill... means you've done the work and put in the time. Now, go see what you can put together!

Shellyrm ~ just a country runner said...

Love that last quote.

You are awesome'ness! I'll be prepared to barf from jealousy when I read how great you did in your race. In fact I might even force myself to do some core work just so I feel more Emz like and work on that jealousy thing. ;-)

Be safe.

Lesley @ racingitoff.com said...

Love that quote! No need for luck!

You WILL have a great race!

Silly Girl Running said...

Love both Ron's and Zig Zaglar's quote! You don't need luck, Miss Awesome, you've got this. :) Enjoy, have fun, be fabulous and rock that course. Own that course! :)

And just to be sure...I'll be sending speedy vibes your way. ;)

Patrick Mahoney said...

Go get it done this weekend. Snipers.

XLMIC said...

Kids' art says it all!

She got it nailed, EMZ!

Get to work. J.F.R. (just f-ing run).

Bonnie said...

Aw how cute, I remember when my son was young and would draw cute pics. Good Luck this weekend.

Kevin @ Half TRI-ing said...

The drawing reminds me of the old CareBears

Ha ha ha ... OPP, I have that on my ipod (note to wife - ONLY ON MY IPOD)

Mel -Tall Mom on the Run said...

Even the prepared could use a little race day luck :) High Five to you! My little guy had a glow in the dark star, he stuck it to my bedroom door and said "I put this here for you because you are a star at running." I nearly melted.. At the end of the day if we are able to inspire and delight those closest to us, then we have achieved more than most.. (hmmm maybe I should sell that quote? JK)

Hugs to a strong performance and meeting new people.. Lets practice waving instead of flipping off shall we?? HEHEHE sorry I am a prude..

TRI714 said...

Get some love from the road, the pain is your friend.

ThE MidLiFe CrUiSeR said...

There's that togetherness you were telling me about. I agree...it IS the secret to a beautiful relationship. Why marry someone you don't want to be around?!?!

Dash said...

Peanut is not only lovely, but most creative! That's a winner right there! Have a great race and I completely agree, you are a prepared rock star ready to rock it big time! Hope you have a gloriously wonderful day!

Tay Talk said...

Man. I want to start having babies so I can speed up to the day when I get little notes of Rocken'ess!

Nice job running the marathon. Even if it wasn't your best. You'll get it!

Awe.some.ness.

Little people are the smartest beings ever.

615am with no kids and Im up already...WTF is wrong with me

thanks so much for arranging a blogger dinner last night!! It was super cool to meet all you "guys" and I seriously think each one of you is amazing. That was fun...

Silly Girl Running said...

By the way: bragged about the Run EMZ-shirt on my blog. ;)

Karen R said...

I love both of the quotes! They are indeed inspiring!

Johann said...

Have a fantastic race! You are lucky to meet some awesome bloggers.

Raegun said...

Sending you positive vibes for this weekend - not that you need them! :)

Mark said...

That is awesomeness! I love when my kids make me stuff. My wall of my office is wallpapered in Barbie, Harry Potter, Scooby Doo, Star Wars stuff and pictures of the little ones.

True... luck IS for the unprepared.

Annie said...

Love all the quotes. You are going to rock it tomorrow!

Angie said...

She is delightful! Dying to hear how it went.
