- Randomess at it's Best: My favorite part of B.o.B's Tour de Mitten visit was all the randomness we encountered (or created). I mean who doesn't need a hat with hair already attached or really bizarre salt and pepper shakers like these:The outhouse ones say, "Full of S" and "Full of P." Gross.
Also, Spike looks weird with "hair."
Then there were the random animal carvings...
- Winter Hacienda: Perfectly timed for the impending winter storm we're about to get creamed with, the Winter Hacienda is this weekend. You may remember I mentioned something about this in my January wrap up; the guys are having an eating contest to get naming rights for two unborn Hacienda babies. This year's contest will be whoever can eat a TB Grande meal the fastest. My bets are on Spike.
"Dear Inappropriately Named Hacienda Baby,
I'm sorry Uncle Spike named you that terrible name.
Love, Aunt Red"
- Races Ahoy: I mentioned last week that I had been race shopping and over the weekend I officially registered for two upcoming races. First up, Corktown, which is in it's 30th running in downtown Detroit. This race is huge so Spike and I have decided this one will be a fun run for sure. It'll also be the first 5k I will be able to run in it's entirety since my R2R began! Woot! Next up will be the Lansing Marathon 5k, which will help me kill some time while I wait for Spike (and a blogger friend who hasn't announced officially that he/she is running it yet) to finish. I intend to "race" this one, though it's hard to imagine "racing" a 5k when I know I am a far cry from being able to PR. Considering my 5k PR will be two years old by then, I think it's time to let it go and start over. (FYI: 5k PR = 22:19) I have not however, signed up for the 10k I've been eying. I've decided I'd like to get at least 5 miles under my belt before I pull the trigger. (This is what happens when you waste $300 on races you couldn't run because you were injured for 9 months.)
How old do you think a PR has to be before it's no longer considered a PR?
