Finally, the Chance to Have Boobs

Come on ya’ll, vote on the picture contest if you haven’t already. We’ve got penises, vaginas, you name it. Don’t miss out.

Before I go off the deep end about something non-running related, here’s the running scoop for me. Last week = 44.5 miles including an 8 miler at marathon pace (8:40), Yassos (5 x 800 @ 3:45), a 12 miler and an 18.5 miler. This week is much of the same: an 8 miler at MP (8:40), Yassos (6 x 800 @ 3:30), a 10 miler and an 18 miler. Finally, next week I will back off some and then start to taper down for my May 9th (Mother’s Day) marathon!

Now that we got running trash taken care of…I’ll say this about myself: I love to win. Who doesn’t? This little habit of mine, i.e., needing and wanting to win, is probably the reason I have visited the fine city of Las Vegas no less than 12 times over the past 7 years. I like to think that I have singlehandedly built the Wynn Hotel with all of my losses. Okay, perhaps I just purchased one of the barstools in the Carnival Bar, but whatever. You get the picture. I lose. Every. Single. Time.

The good news is, my children still have a roof over their heads and they have warm Ramen noodles to eat. It’s all good.

I threw my name in the hat for a recent giveaway through Nuf Said, an advertising agency in Lafayette, Colorado. My husband’s company is a client of Nuf Said, so I was considered a legitimate entrant. I won. The prize? A bobble head of myself.

Don’t even think that you don’t need one of these. It’s a must have. Who doesn’t want a distorted dollish replica of themselves with an oversized, wiggling head?

I had no idea what went into creating a bobble head of oneself. It’s the type of of thing you don’t know about until you experience it. Kind of like putting a spoon in the crease of the Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls and watching them pop, or feeling cotton candy melt in your mouth. It’s all a new adventure.

Here’s what’s all involved: First, you need to pick your body. I had it narrowed down to these:

The only time I will ever have boobs:

bobble

The obvious choice – the runner. Check out those crazy heels on the shoes :

bobble1

A true Shut Up and Run bobble head (love the fuchsia panties!):

bobble2

This would be the butch version of me:

bobble3

I ended up boring and went with the runner. I requested to have African skin tones, blond hair and green eyes, just to throw everyone off (JK). I sent in these pictures to keep it accurate:

Holy crap. Look at that wrinkled lower face and neck. Don’t even get me started on the pointy nose.

P1060309

All of this info is submitted to the bobble making universe and in about a month’s time, I’ll be the proud owner of a BH to show you!

What would your bobble head look like? Take a look HERE.

PS: Don't even pretend you didn't notice my new format/background. Whatcha think?

  1. Can't believe I'm the first post- there's usually at least 20 by the time I get here :)!
    I gotta say the BH on the toilet was pretty classic (especially since I think the first or second post I read of yours had a pic of you on the toilet :)).
    I do like the new background/set up of your blog, wish I knew how to change mine into something other than the standard templates:). Guess that will come the longer I blog.

  3. My aunt had a BH made for my cousin's graduation and it came out awesome. He played football and they customized the uniform and everything. If they weren't so dang expensive, I'd get a pair to be my cake topper for my wedding cake.

    Like the new background!

  13. Holy crap...the new background completely blinded me. Then, as I begin to regain focus, there is a frickin Beth Bobblehead taking a dump. Can you get rid of the crapper and put some bushes around you? Maybe a tree?

    And I would've totally gone for the potty-time BH. But asked for running shoes instead of the heels.

    ReplyDelete
  19. This post was not at all what I expected. I figured it would have something to do with estrogen shots and me wearing a skirt.

  31. I am commenting to see what my photo looks like on your background. Looks really good (the background) Why didn't you tell me about the Bobble head? Love it. Can I have one? (of you) Are they in mass production yet?

    ReplyDelete
  32. You should have an extra one made and do a bloggy giveaway with it. I would SO enter that giveaway: I'd stick it to my jogging stroller and use you as motivation. :)

    love the new look

    ReplyDelete
  33. darn it when through before I was done :(

    I was going to say, it would be great for when I wanted to quit. Your little bobble head would say "no no no"....or do those things nod "yes, yes, yes"....this might not work hehehe

    ReplyDelete

  40. Thanks for the comment on my blog about the "pee" situation...I thought of you when I was trying to decide whether or not to put it in there or not...but, I decided runners will understand!!!:)

    ReplyDelete
  41. The potty bobble head made me laugh because of the fuchsia panties with no pants, but really cute shoes that match the blouse! I can't wait to see how your bobble head turns out. I hope they get your pretty blue eyes on that thing. I absolutely love the new background. (Colorado River?) Nice job!!
