Three Things Thursday

1.  The Kardashians made news in Montana recently for going in the ditch in their big SUV.  Then another story surfaced about how they were here filming for their show and had wanted a musher to take out 5 teams of dogs (50 dogs) and give them a ride all the while being filmed.  They wanted him to do it in return for "the exposure".   This show makes millions and they wouldn't pay him his $3900 fee for the private excursion. 

He told them no.  They ended up in the ditch.  Karma.

I don't tend to follow anything with celebrities, especially people like the Kardashians... why are they even famous?   I hope my kids never think people like that are neat.

2.  Time change... ugh.  I freaking hate time changes.  It was just starting to be light in the morning on my drive to work too.  I am a morning person, I want light in the morning!  We need to stop this time change madness!  Arizona people have it figured out, the rest of us just have to suffer with the madness it plays on our internal clocks and darker mornings. 

I hate the person who thought this was such a great idea.

3. Kinda ranty so far so lets end on a happier note.. 17 days until my next half marathon!!  Whoop whoop!  Halfs are my favorite distance and I get to see some of my awesome Team Beef Montana running buddies!  Hopefully the weather is good, but it is Montana and it is March so I won't hold my breath on that one!

They also have a drawing for trips to Dublin, free beer at the finish line, and a mostly downhill course.  Bozeman know how to put on a half marathon. 

The first three miles being uphill is a little rough, but after that it is smooth sailing until mile 8.  I remember the hill there as pretty tough the last time I ran this half with my little sister two years ago, and again after that... wheeeee all the way to the finish line!

  1. I 100% agree with you on the Kardashians. Nothing like being famous for nothing!

  2. Those first 3 miles will definitely be hard, but them you can party all the way to the end (except for mile 9) :)

  4. Ugh I hate it when rich people try to get things for free. They are they ones that can afford whatever they want! Ridiculous! Definitely karma biting them in the butt. I hate the time change too:( I have been loving the lighter mornings and don't want to spring forward:/

  5. I really wanted to do this run (10K distance) but I will be out of town! I know LOTS of people who are doing it, though! You'll have a great time! It's on my bucket list so hopefully next year... :) Also, I agree with everything you said about the Kardashian thing! Bleh.

  6. Ha! I love this post :) It's kinda sick the Kardashian's make all that money- pay the fee. I hate that "famous" folks get and expect so much crap for free.
    The course looks like a challenge in Bozeman, but you are kick butt Christy :) you got this!

  7. I agree on the time change. It's just now getting light on my early morning runs and I don't want to go back to running in the dark. Who WANTS to keep up with the Kardashians?

  8. I'm the opposite about the time change -- I can't wait for evening daylight! That course looks fun. Do your quads kill the next day?
