"Pretty Fly" - The Offspring

That's one of 74 names I've got for Ron.

Yes.
Yes.
Mr. Punky
Mr. Ultramarathoner
Mr. Coolest clothes ever.
Mr. PRR

My mail guy girl has been getting a lot of hugs from me this week.

Yesterday I got this:

Holy freaking awesome.

But . . . . .

I wasn't the only happy camper.

Little Emz [Peanut] - yep, she got one too.  Yep, wore it to school today!

Happy.  Freaking.  Peanut.

The conversation yesterday . . . .

Peanut:  no way!  I got one?
Emz: Yep, he said one was for you!
Peanut:  that's so awesome

Pita: how do you get one too kid?
Peanut: it's for "letting" mom run in the morning, I think.
Pita:  you let mom run?  please explain.
Peanut:  Well - I stay happy so she doesn't feel all guilty and stuff when she's still running when I wake up.

n i c e.

Peanut also explained how she'd be wearing this to my run on May 6th and 7th so "people can see how sweet skulls are".

Me . . . you bet cha, I'll be taking mine too, I've just made a few adjustments:



Thank you Ron!!

Any other outfit suggestions for me for the outdoor 24 hour run?!

Love that Peanut got one too! And that she "lets" you run.

Caratunk Girl said...

SWEET! That Ron is something special!

XLMIC said...

What an awesome guy! Lucky Peanut!

Aimee said...

That is so awesome! Peanut is too cute!

Looks like a new precedent. For anything going to big EMZ, a second also has to go to little EMZ. I say sexual discrimination against Pita.

I might be exposing my ignorance here. What is it?

bobbi said...

Wait - you are running a 24 hour TREADMILL run, but doing it OUTDOORS? Or am I totally confused here...?

Melissa Cunningham said...

SWEEEET! and yes,peanut is quite the EMZ jr on some fronts!
looks like we both have big days on the 6th and 7th...
except i wont be running for 24 hrs-
my event is just about 12 hours long and then i get to sit down and eat cadburry cream eggs.....or perhaps a 5lb gummi bear(wink wink)

anyways,im getting excited for you about your 24 hour run and the cause that it is for...
keep on rocking on with your bad(in a good way) self,sister!!!!

#1 I hope it doesn't rain. If it does, a shade structure. #2 If it doesn't rain, a face mask to keep all of the dust from Phoenix out of your lungs. #3 A spotlight. That's all I can think of. Oh and #4 A tape recording of me yelling "You can't walk at hour 23!" That should cover it.

Emz said...

Chris k. Not the first time I've heard that.

Neil. No worries your a Canadian. ;) it's a bag. Like backpack.

Bobbi. Yep. A. Mill. Outside. :)

Lesley @ racingitoff.com said...

Peanut makes *me* smile, and she's not even my kid... I bet you walk around with a permanent grin. ;-)

Candice @ I Have Run said...

Have you told yet Ron that I want to be his BFF?

Great bag. Great kid.

Barefoot Neil Z said...

Ok, thanks! I am less ignorant now... But still Canadian...

Silly Girl Running said...

Bethany + Ryan said...

Marlene said...

Ron needs to make you a PUNK ROCK RACING bra!

Matty O said...

Hilarious. Would love to be a fly on the wall for your family discussions haha.

Peanut seems to be scoring a lot of cool merchandise lately!!!

Quinton J said...

Quinton J said...

Also…I mailed you some of those delicious Oreo stuffed cookies that you love so much. Let me know when you get them.

Christi said...

Awesome bag! You are a rock star!

Kovas said...

Sunscreen.

Morgan said...

We seriously need to get Ron to make up some tanks or sports bras for us ladies!!! Don't those bags rock?!?!

Emz said...

Q-waiting with baited breath. Can't I just have the green hoodie?

Quinton J said...

Em...Obviously I packed the delicious cookies IN the green sweater so they wouldn’t get crushed and nasty.

Jill said...

Lucky girls!!! :)

Emz said...

Q. Happy. Happy. Emz. You are such a thinker!

Morgan- you takin this to the man or should I?! ;)

Jen said...

Your peanut always says the best things! Good thing you're writing them down!

Jason said...

Since you are the baddest treadmill runner this side of anywhere USA I suggest bringing the highest of high heels with you and put those bad boys on after you are done and look at all the men and say:

'What you don't put on dress shoes after running?'

You rock those happy skulls.....

Big Daddy Diesel said...

DRog said...
