Sex Tape, runDisney, Shamrocks

So Hulk Hogan has a sex tape. This really grosses me out. Please, nobody Rick Roll me and trick me into watching it! He was the first celebrity to go on Kali River Rapids when I was working in Disney World. Pretty sure he shaves his legs. They looked very tan and oiled.

Over the course of this week I was ready to quit running, then pretty sure I was the next up and coming star in the running world. Funny what a few miles here and there can do to the psyche!

Tomorrow is the 10K I spontaneously registered for. Looks like I'm in for a wet one. I guess the fact that I'll be in a tank top will be okay -- less material to get wet, right?!? Ooh, I just remembered I have neon green arm sleeves. Hm. Maybe I can re-work the outfit around the sleeves instead of the shirt! Next weekend is also a Shamrock themed race. So much green - and I pretty much own nothing green, so it gets challenging.

Last night I registered my dear friend Jessica for the Tower of Terror 10 miler at the 5K that same morning. I am excited to suck her into the runDisney world. How about you? Are you doing Tower of Terror? Or are you adjusting with the date change and getting in the Wine & Dine Half? I'm pretty bummed because I really wanted to do Wine & Dine .. but I am a big Halloween fan and W&D would make me miss all of the events. Plus I can't pull off WDW Marathon weekend AND Wine & Dine so close together. Darn. But either way I'm sure all weekends are going to be a blast!

The girl that made up the mean rumor about me tricking someone into getting me pregnant came into my work yesterday. I can't even really describe the physical reaction I had to her presence. I avoided her the entire time, but ugh - I felt it. Racing pulse, increased body temperature, cold, clammy hands. Perhaps I should I have just confronted her.

I'm sure you read Giraffy's blog, and if you don't ... um, go do it! If you have been reading, then you are aware of her Evan Dando obsession. Apparently I have a sympathetic bone in my body because now I'm on a mission to help save him. I just want to send him some clothes. And shampoo. And maybe help him kick the drug habit. He just seems like a lost little puppy. I might br a little insane. I blame Giraffy for this one.

You know those half hour long infomercials for music? For example, Smokey Robinson and random woman talking about the great Soul classics and how if you act now you cna get 2 bonus CDs. That's 150 songs to your collection, and you can return them if it is not the best collection you've heard. Yeah - so The Coach and I spent way too much time last weekend after our long run watching THREE different music infomercials. I found it fun to try to sing along with as many as I could. By the end I was doing lead AND background vocals with coordinated "dance" moves. I was kind of disappointed when we finished them. I think the long run got to my brain!

And I think that's about it for now. I'm going to try to get caught up on blogs this weekend. My schedule is just all out of whack and it seems now I get to sit down on the weekend and read and that's it. So lame. Have a great weekend everybody - and have great races for all of you that are getting ready to toe the line!

  1. Oh, the comments I could make....but I won't. Good running, as you know, I don't say "good luck" because we train for this stuff, there is no luck involved, just as there is "no try".

  6. I love your blog! I would really like to do Wine & Dine, but I think that's going to have to wait until 2013 or 2014. Doing Goofy 2013 and probably Disneyland Half. One of these days, runDisney is going to come up with some sort of medal for doing all of their events in one year... I know I will get sucked into doing that, for sure. :)

  7. You'll rock tomorrow! I have no doubt.
    I'm going to rock our matching lime green arm sleeves for the NYC half next weekend, too!

    I didn't realize the ToT 5k was the morning of the 10mi. . they should do something special for people running both b/c that technically equals a half marathon!

    PS- The outlook of me running that is looking good ;-)

  8. I agree ... Disney needs to have a BIG medal. And I vote for a medal for the "Dopey" runners as well.

    Abby ... YAY!!! I will be so excited to see you there!!!

  9. Best blog post title EVER! I never thought I'd see sex tape and Disney in the same sentence. LOL I'm really really really hoping to do Tower of Terror 10 mile, airfare just needs to get cheaper and I'm in! I do have an annual pass after all. :)

    1. The airfare is insane right now!! I'm already registered and so getting there is really the only obstacle left. I'll just keep waiting and strike the second it goes down!

  10. Sooooo, I'm now positive Wine & Dine isn't in the cards for me this year. But that leaves ToT - I did the last one (when it was a 13K) so I feel like I want, scratch, NEED to do the inaugural 10 miler. Plus then I would have done both inaugural runDisney events. Maybe I should just sign up.
