About Me

My Photo
My real life is a lot like THS (True Hollywood Story) except there's no fame, fortune, or drug addiction. Instead, I'm happily married, have two children, and a dog who's prone to barfing at 3 am. I love them all, but I also have to run away from them every day. I always run back, though.

Packed

I got my suitcase all packed and ready for my Denver trip:

Lucky horse shoe earrings: Check.

iPod charged and packed: Check.

Garmin charged and packed: Check.

Standard racing shorts: Check.

Trusty sports bra: Check.

Socks, shoes, long-sleeve tech shirt, visor: Check, check, check, and check.

Body Glide: Check.

Shot Bloks: Mutha-fucking Check.

That's the stuff that matters. I may forget my toothbrush, but if I have all my racing stuff, then I'm coolio. I'm sure Denverites sell toothbrushes.

Anyhoo, on the schedule for tonight is...wait for it, wait for it...bowling! It's our first meeting pre-league, and the league will begin in the first week of June -- wa-hoo! Are you guys pumped? It's bowling season! So, anyway, I have bowling tonight and then class tomorrow morning, and then I'm outta here tomorrow afternoon and I am westbound for the Mile High City.

The race isn't until Sunday, but I have the expo to attend, family to visit with, and friends to see, so I will probably be MIA in the blogopshere until I get back (late Sunday night), and probably won't blog again until Monday. I know, I know, shed a few tears now if you need to...okay, now quit being a pussy; that's enough crying.

So, wish me luck on the race and I'll see ya homies in a few days! Peace.

Have a great time in Denver. It should be nice to run in cooler temps. Kick some mile high ass as you represent South F-L-A

GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN!!! I totally want to join a bowling league again...it was so fun in college. It should probably be called a "drinking league w/ some bowling involved" and not a "bowling league"... our priorities were a little mixed up!

David said...

Ho-lee-shit! It's like Christmas in June! Bring on the (Jess) bowling!!! Boo, off-season; Hooray, beer!

Good Luck at Colfax, Jess. Hopefully the weather will be friendly for running.

Good thing I didn't shed too many tears, I have no tissues handy. Have a great weekend.

Hope you had a great race today and you weren't too hot!

Ted said...

Hope you did well today !!! I have checked the weather in Denver. Looks like around 80's but with the low humidity, it should be comfortable! *crossing fingers* Am looking forward to your post-race report. Enjoy your flight back home to steamy Florida.
