Nada. Zero. Ziltch.

So I have nothing to say today. You're all shocked I know. Well pick your jaw up off the ground. I'm worried about my 20 miler in the morning. I can only imagine how many bathroom breaks I'm going to have to take. Sadly these are the things I'm worried about. I thought this would be fun though, Amanda tagged me in this game, and who doesn't want to know more about me??

Crazy 8 Tag:

8 Things I'm Looking Forward To:

1. Lunch: I brought hummus. Delish.
2. Running 20 miles tomorrow, because then I feel like I KNOW I'll be able to run the full marathon in a little over 30 days
3. Warm weather, so I can keep working on my tan. (don't worry, don't send me hate mail. I wear sunscreen!)
4. A Possible upcoming photo shoot... (I'll let you all know more lattttter :)
5. Doing nothing tomorrow after my run, preferable while watching the Ducks annihilate the Sharks (again!) in the Stanley Cup Playoffs once more and watching some Angel baseball.
6. Going to San Fran and meeting up with all my girls and running the SF half in July.
7. What flavors of Gu the store will have for my long run tomorrow morning. I hope they have chocolate.
8. Getting my car (the koo) washed on my lunch break because I haven't washed it in SIX MONTHS

8 Things I Did Yesterday

1. Was on a conference call
2. Ate a chicken quesadilla from my favorite place, Super Mex
3. Was stuck in traffic on the way home from work
4. Went to Target and returned 2 things
5. Walked to Yogurtland for dessert
6. Ate a chicken salad sandwich
7. Ran three measly miles. Fail.
8. Drank 6 1 liter bottles of water. Consequently went to the bathroom 200 times.

8 Things I Wish I Could Do/Want To Do

1. Move out of CA
2. Go to the beach every day
3. Run faster! :) ( I know I know, I have to train harder, DUH)
4. Go back to Kauai!
5. Get a puppy
6. Run an ultra (one day!)
7. Get married (one day, far far away...)
8. Give back to people/community more (working on it)

8 Shows I Watch
1. The Office
2. Parks and Recreation
3. Millionaire Matchmaker
4. Make me a Supermodel
5. Dancing with the Stars
6. Biggest Loser
7. American Idol
8. The Hills (wha whaaa)

And how could I resist not putting in some more Kauai pics for this photo Friday by the lovely Nike Mom. Come on, the trip hasn't worn off yet! :)


This is overlooking the Hanalei Valley again. Just me being a little creepy.


This is basically summing up me and Mr. R's relationship to a T... This is at Wakiki Beach in Oahu during our layover. We are addicted to the beach. I basically always wear outfits that resemble this and he always looks likes that... We are also ADDICTED to Starbucks. Funny thing is I don't even drink coffee and neither does Mr. R, only on occasion. I am a Starbucks drinker of all their other drinks, especially the soy Chai Latte.

Well everyone, have a wonderful weekend. I'll report back about the 20 miler on Monday! I am just telling myself, 10 miles out, 10 miles back. I'll probably let you all know I'm alive still via my Twitter... Last night Mr. R called me a tweetwhore! What! :) He is slowly learning about twitter. One day he'll come around :)


Ps. To those who asked about the Victoria Secret Swimsuit, there is no padding, no nothing in that baby. It's just swimsuit material.

Amy said...

Amanda said...

I read your blog all the time and I think you're hilarious! I also followed you on Twitter ( today thanks to the link (?? the "follow me on Twitter" thing on your page just takes you to

Anyway, good luck on the 20 miles, I'm sure you'll do great!

Mrs. M said...

I am sure you will do great tomorrow! I admire that you are working on such big goals like running a marathon!

J said...

Good luck on the 20 miler! I am sure you will rock it!

I looked for the VS bathing suit and its on back order until May 27th! WTF!! Oh well guess ill be heading to Target!

Susan said...

Good luck on the 20 miler! Hopefully you don't have too many bathroom stops, although six liters of water will do that!

I think it's funny how you say you both want to move out of CA and go to the beach every day. Move to Hawaii, maybe?

Millionaire Matchmaker is one of those shows I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I watch on occasion...

Jamie said...

Good luck with the 20 miler tomorrow! I'll be running 20 too!

I have the same victoria secret bathing suit :) I bought it for my honeymoon last year and love it!

The New Black said...

I love Millionaire Matchmaker. Although sometimes the people on it bug me so much...don't know why I can't stop watching!

Mrs. G.I Joe said...

Woah girl! You guys actually run 20 miles without breaks? If so, that completely blows my mind at this point:p Going for my little run of two miles tonight, but hey, gotta start somewhere, right:p Your so tan already! I wish I could brown like you! The irish blood in my veins just won't allow it:( Good luck on Monday! From what I see so far you seem like the type that won't be defeated:) You'll do great.

joyRuN said...

Adam said...

Ok, so I normally don't comment, but I had to. Hummus is not lunch. That is the appetizer you eat before you eat lunch. :)

Good luck on the 20. They aren't as bad as you think.

Danica's Daily said...

Good luck tomorrow! I know you will rock the run. Love the crazy 8 survey - fun!

Why are earth do you want to move out of CA? Ever since I left I'm dying to go back.

The Laminator said...

Cute pics. Hope you have fun on your 20 miler!

K said...

If you didn't go to the bathroom during your 20-mile run, it would be a big problem. Going to the bathroom during a long run just proves that you are well-hydrated. I love the Vanilla Bean Gu! Hope you enjoyed yourself today. Just wait for the marathon!

Natalie D said...

Oh.. love those pics! hope the 20 miler went well! I liked reading those crazy 8s!

Nicole said...

I love the shoes you are wearing in the pic with mr.r! i have such an obsession with shoes, thats the first thing i check out :)

Carolina Girl said...
