|I kind of really love cowboys...|
2. My run was good, it was also fueled in part by the birthday cake I made my Dad (Happy birthday yesteray Poppa!). I spent most of the time thinking about all the people who lived through what happened on Monday in Boston and the three who didn't. Instead of complaining about the cold weather and the continual intermittent snow we have had the last 5 days I embraced it.
Instead of hating the hills I had on my route today and how much harder they were making my 400 intervals I embraced the hurt and ran hard for those who today cannot.
I marveled at the feel of moving my legs, my feet pounding on the ground, my lungs burning as I tried to sprint up yet another hill. I soaked up the beauty all around me and laughed at the small snowflakes hitting my face. I paused a moment to watch a herd of deer bound over a hill away from me. I waved to the truckers on the interstate honking at me.
|how could you not honk at me in this bright yellow shirt, apparently my Dad's horse was also a little suspicious of it|
3. My little sister is moving to Virgina at the end of May and just came back from house and job hunting with her husband. She found this in the airport and had to bring it back for me since she knows how much I love my chapstick.
|Big fat boo for my sister moving, but yay for fun new lippy!|
What do you think..dill pickle lip balm yay or nay? What is your favorite flavor of lip balm?
Interesting - about the cows. I'd have to say nay to the lip balm, but maybe it would remind me of pickle juice, which is good for runners, right?!ReplyDelete
That chapstick sounds foul, but I would totally try it!ReplyDelete
okay that sounds horrible lol. I don't think I could put that on my lips. Anything cake flavored sounds good to me ;)ReplyDelete
Your runs always look so peaceful...
That doesn't sound like the best Chapstick flavor to me but if you like that I suppose it would be delicious.ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear your sister is moving :(
I have never seen dill pickle lip balm. I think I would pass;) Sorry your sister is moving:(ReplyDelete
I do love pickles but ... hmmm ... I'd probably try it. Not use it regularly but try it.ReplyDelete
Though there's so much grief and devastation around Monday, it's so amazing how the events have brought a community together and helped us all fall in love with running a bit more. I know this week that when I was hurting, I told myself it couldn't hurt as much as what those in Boston were going through. I hope we're always quick to remember the gift we have to run.
It's been great seeing everyone's runs they are dedicating and all the groups coming together in support. ewww dill pickle chapstick, does it stink?ReplyDelete
Dill pickle chapstick. And my first thought was 'I would eat it.' LolReplyDelete
I love working cattle and cowboys too! I got my arm broken my a cow once when I tried to play cowgirl. :-)ReplyDelete
I think I could try Dill Pickle chapstick, because I love pickles. But, I am a Chapstick girl all the way. Love the original (black label).ReplyDelete
Not a huge chapstick person, just give me the plain stuff. Although who doesn't love pickles!ReplyDelete
Dill pickle chapstick? I just don't know. I do love pickles though.ReplyDelete

My heroes have always been cowboys.ReplyDelete
I do love dill pickles but lip balm? I kinda don't thiiiiiink so.ReplyDelete
And I agree.... love cowboys. Have been blessed to have a few in my life, too.
Cake is the best kind of fuel! Pickle lip balm...sounds interesting!ReplyDelete

I definitely never turn down anything dill but this is a bit of a stretch. How is it?ReplyDelete
I loved your run and I wasn't even there ;-)
That picture with your daughter's shoulder and the herding in the background is really nice. It captures it so well.ReplyDelete
It's been such a week for runners, for everyone. I appreciate your spirit of honoring the good that so many displayed in the face of such horrific violence. So much.
Nice dedication run!ReplyDelete
I don't think I could do dill pickle lip balm. I am more of a Burt's Bees kinda gal.
I love dill pickles; I love chap stick. Why not put them together!?ReplyDelete
Ha, that is crazy, but I LOVE pickles so I would try it! Where in VA is she moving?ReplyDelete
