Me, Keith and Bryan

Aren't those great?

I decided to do my long run today in case the rain decide to join the nasty wind we have.  Yes once again some wind for my long run.  I am getting a little tired of it.  9 miles today.  5 of those facing the freaking wind.  At times it was so strong I lost my balance.  Bill's response to that: "Put some weight on!".  No comment.   I took these 2 guys with me in my ears for my run:

I took the picture of Keith the first time I saw him in concert, front row seat, that was greatREALLY GREAT.

I also took EFS liquid shot, this time vanilla flavor.  This one is better for me.  Less sweet. I can even take it while "running".  I have to slow down but no need to actually walk.  Last week I did not take any water with the EFS liquid shot.  This week I took some and followed Chris K's advice and took small sips after taking the shot.  It worked fine for me.  I cannot tell you how happy I am that this stuff works for me.

If I run like I did today for my next half marathon and even If I crash for the last 4 miles (WILL NOT HAPPEN) I would get a PR.  :)

Next week I won't have a long run, I am racing on Saturday (10K) and my best friend from Quebec will be in San Diego for a medical seminar and we are headed there to meet her! I cannot wait!  I have never been to the city of San Diego, I have been to the San Diego Zoo, that's it. 

Now time to go park my behind in front of the TV.  Loved the games yesterday! We have a true Cinderella in the tournament! VCU!  The look on the VCU coach's face says it all:

Yes EMZ I will be cheering for U fo A.
I am still leading my pool, even with Ohio loosing. That is crazy.
I still have a chance to win this thing, I need the CATS to take UConn OUT.
If I win, I will make another donation for EMZ's crazy 24h hour run on a treadmill.  You read that correctly.  If you don't already know about this go here:

Great run. It's not very "manly" but I love Keith Urban - great guitar player. Glad the sticker made it to you ... enjoy!

Ugh. Just watched the game. I'm a little heartbroken :(

Nelly said...

nice run! crashing and burning is not fun, I've only had that happen once ever during my marathon - not a fun process, haha

Looks like Arizona just got knocked out, bummer. It sucks about Ohio State losing, they were my champion in my bracket, so I'm now toast. I actually had UCONN making the final 4, so I stood a good shot at winning my pool if Ohio State had won the tourney...

If you want to know who will win, ask me, I've picked wrong every time.

I'm going to have to look into these liquid shots...I never eat while racing, but I'm thinking of giving it a try.

Off to check out your blog!

I can't believe we have VCU in the final 4, they totally outplayed Kansas today!

My friend brought up a good point recently - with the NBA rule about players only being able to go the NBA after 1 year of college, it has resulted in some other schools having seasoned 4 year seniors playing on their team (Butler, VCU, etc), who likely are smarter basketball players than the high flying freshman that will be doing the NBA after freshman year. People like Matt Howard of Butler simply know how to win, something that the freshman prospects still need to figure out how to do.

Hope you win your pool!
