Happy FRIDAY! Guess what? We have finally made it to a three day weekend!
I wish! After not doing any real running since Monday my legs are itching for a good, long run.
I went to the doctor this morning and…. well actually I’m writing this on Thursday night so I have no idea what the verdict is yet. I can only tell you that ALL DAY yesterday I felt amazing so I’m pretty sure I don’t have what the guy in the picture below has.
… aaaaaand just a couple of other running memes that I like and want to share with you on a beautiful Friday:
I also saw this and it made me smile:
Doesn’t everyone do this with their pet?
The one below cracks me up!!! It’s now on my bucket list to get Cecil to pose with me like this : )
I found it on Pinterest and am a little upset it didn’t come with DIY instructions for how you can get your cat to agree to take this kind of picture.
Oh, and just in case you think I spent all of last night looking at running and cat memes, know that I also finished watching Running Madness, a documentary about the Western States 100-miler from 2002. I give it two thumbs up!
It is similar in a lot of ways to Unbreakable which documents Western States from 2012, except that it doesn’t really follow the elites the way Unbreakable does. It did have some great interviews with Scott Jurek and his pacer, Dusty, that any SJ fan will love.
After reading Scott’s book so many times, it was really fun to see him cross the finish line at Western States.
Scott is known for being a vegan ultrarunner, and I kind of always wondered if part of that was manufactured for book sales. I mean, obviously not the vegan part, but I thought maybe his passion for creating recipes and what not was partially manufactured once he started to become famous. This documentary put that worry to rest for me since he was clearly very into the same interests even back when he was only known in the small ultrarunning community.
Blah Blah blah Scott Jurek blah blah blah, sorry for all the SJ talk lately! I’m in the middle of re-reading Scott’s book for the millionth time and whenever I do I get a little obsessed with both him and ultrarunning in general.
I HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT 3 DAY WEEKEND! Any exciting plans?
– Adam comes home this afternoon after 5 days in Finland for a work trip. SO HAPPY! <3 Really hoping he’s feeling up to going to the Heat game on Sat. night!
Do you have a favorite running meme?
