Hitting a Wall and GU Winners

In light of my dog problems this week and the fact that am a runner, today was the day to post the running dog video.

It’s one of my most favorite videos on the planet right after those eight year old girls dancing to “Single Ladies” (What’s up with that anyway? Are you sure you want your daughter to have the nickname Kandy or Kitty or Trixie this early in life?). 

Yes, I know, you’ve probably seen this one below. But it just.does.not.get.old. I’m begging you, just see if you can watch the end and not laugh. Or cry if you’re a member of PETA or if you’re the guy who put up the drywall.

So..the newest GU flavor is….

Mandarin Orange!

It appears that many of you were hoping it would be Hershey squirt to honor my marathon. So sweet of you. Or gross.

Winners are (Time to fess up: did you guys google it? Just a good guess? Divine intervention?):

Isela, Running Girl, and Holly. Email me your addresses and I’ll send you one MO GU!

Have a great weekend.

Next post: Lessons learned from the marathon, so stay tuned. These lessons may include, but not be limited to: starving yourself before a marathon and getting your dog’s eye out to spark your adrenaline, and squirting in your cheetah skirt if you want a BQ.

  2. Thanks! It was just a hunch!
    I have a dog who does that, not quite as wildly, but, that is too funny!

  3. How does the mandarin orange Gu taste? Sounds like it might be pretty good, but the expectation and the actual don't always line up very well in the world of Gu. I'm a fan of the chocolate, but the mint-chocolate didn't go over well at all. Looking forward to getting back to where my mileage calls for downing some nasty gels.

  5. Mandarin orange sounds tasty, I'll have to try it. I recently tried the strawberry banana for the first time and really liked it.

  6. I'll have to try it. Haven't had much luck with the citrus flavored gels. Chocolate Outrage remains at the top of my list.

  25. Aaawww! Poor dog. What a wake up call. Wonder if a dog's dreams include people and messed up themes like ours do?
    Congrats to the GU winners.
