Last night was spent refreshing Weather.com constantly in the hopes that the weather somehow magically transformed to awesome. I kept checking Facebook to see if my two running buddies for this morning were going to follow through even it was pouring with rain. I figured I would get wet and deal with it for 15 or 16 miles. When I woke up, I saw this for our scheduled run time:
Call me a baby, but in a thunderstorm with chances of a tornado? Thanks, I'm staying home. We are rescheduled for tomorrow morning at 7. So all of a sudden I had the morning free and plenty of rain. Hooray. I spent the day working so I was justified in registering for some upcoming races. That evens out, right?
I also focused on eating foods to pretend I was NOT in a thunderstorm and actually in a tropical paradise. First up: Chobani pineapple Greek yogurt. Not kidding, the stuff is like a pina colada. Next time I'm sticking it straight in the blender with ice and rum, thanks every much.
Also on the menu - and by menu, I mean in my belly- clementines. I always think these are such a good deal in the grocery store but hubby and I go through a pack in a day or two so I think overall it might not be quite as affordable as I'm thinking it is. But still tasty, so they stay. P.S. Sorry for saying "in my belly." You know you just read that in a Scottish accent and have the sudden urge to watch Austin Powers. Just admit it.
I just found out that Cuties brand clementines are one of the major sponsors for the Publix Georgia Marathon so that all ties in nicely together, doesn't it? It's almost as if I planned it that way. Almost. Oh, you were still wondering about that marathon? Crazy. If you are still interested in registering there are some more great deals thanks to their recent partnership with the Atlanta Hawks. Read here for the details, but basically if they kick some butt tonight against the Cleveland Cavaliers, every point they win by is $1 off your registration fee between noon and midnight tomorrow. Just enter HAWKS at checkout.
So basically, if they win by like 100 points the race will be free. That could happen, right? Actually, I have genuinely no idea about basketball scoring, teams or points. I know that an orange ball goes into the basket and some guys are tall. The end.
*Edited to add: the Hawks won by 27 points - that is a serious discount guys! If you plan to register, do it today!*
Do you watch any sports regularly on TV? Are you as clueless about them as me?
I'm just really not interested. I like watching soccer and rugby sometimes if it's a big game, because I've played both those sports and understand the rules well. Everything else baffles me. American football especially! Just hoping for some good Superbowl commercials this year to make watching the whole thing worth it.
What food/drink/alcohol beverage makes you feel like you're on holiday?
Anything with an umbrella in it usually does the trick, but so does watermelon and bottles of Corona with lime wedges. Yes. Just, yes.
