Legally Blonde.

tumblr_mhx6artPEr1qmn5ngo2_250So, Saturday night, I went to see Legally Blonde: The Musical in Greensboro, NC.  It’s playing for two more weekends, so if you’re interested, please go see it.  Seats sell out quickly so go here if you’re interested at all.

Onto the post!

DSC_0192So, I went to school with Elle Woods, there in the middle, I’m good friends with Stephen, there on the end who played Kyle, the UPS guy, and, down on the bottom row is Michael, who played Nikos, the pool boy.

DSC_0193Zoom in here to see some more of the show dates.

These boys totally had their own moments where they each stole the show.  Michael, on the left played Nikos, and they did a hysterical song called “Gay or European,” – it was hysterical!  Michael definitely flexed his stank face muscles during this one.  Stephen, on the right, stole the show when he played Kyle, the UPS guy that Paulette is obsessed with.  He had the BEST little costume, and the way he strutted around stage had the entire crowd giggling.

DSC_0201There’s Elle in the middle, who did a fantastic job.  I loved her hot pants costume the best!

Seriously, go see this show.  They didn’t pay me to say that.  Kinda wish they did.  But whatevs.

Okay, whether it’s the movie or the musical, what was your favorite part of Legally Blonde?

Loving on the Run!

Hi!  Head over to Sara’s spot at Loving on the Run to see my sweet guest post about the disaster that befall me in the Middle of the Greensboro Marathon.

Sara is actually a Carolina girl, and has been fun to email with.  Blogger besties?  Too soon to tell?  Am I being creepy?  Not sure.  Head over beautiful readers!

Time to have some fun! #runchat

In the comments below, on Facebook, or on Twitter answer me this.

What should I think about on tomorrows long beautiful run? I’ll do my best do think about it and address it in a little post next week.  

The first order of thinking business will be about food.  That’s all I’ve got so far. 

Weather Obsession

Marathons are very much like weddings in that you do this…thing.

You check the weather incessantly, smiling when it looks good (about 10 days out), and progressively getting more anxious as you realize that things aren’t going to go the way you planned. That’s so life right?

You have to understand where I’m coming from here though. There was a point during training where I was running, in the mountains of Pennsylvania on a 94-degree day with like 77% humidity. I never dried off that day, btws. Never for a second did I think that I’d be crossing the start line in Greensboro with a starting temp of 32 degrees.

Weather

Of course, there are a few conflicting reports on what temp we’re starting in, but the truth is, it’s gonna be effing cold.

No matter, it’s off to the running store I go tonight. Objective? A better pair of gloves that actually fit my limbs, and those little hot hands thingies to stick in my gloves while we’re just chilling and waiting around for the gun to go off. And it’s time (now two days away) to plan a good outfit.

Here goes Buzzfeed, singing my life.

4 days away from the Greensboro Marathon, and I’m a little alarmed that I’m not freaking out or having a psychotic break. All I can think about is eating a biscuit from Biscuitville with an egg on it. 26.2 miles, and all I can think about is the fat I can consume immediately following. Oh well, have me arrested if you don’t like it.

This video though.  The one I related to the best was the isolation, which I distinctly felt at like miles 17-19 of my first marathon.  Justin Timberlake Pandora was playing, and I remember wondering where everyone was.

What I didn’t relate to, however, was the wall, and knock on wood for my amazing co-workers who guided me through the nutrition needed to prevent that exhausted feeling, I hope I don’t hit it this time.  4 days!  Eep!
