A good day. Oh, yeah.
Last night I pitched a tent out on the driveway so I could catch the paper when the delivery dude threw it at the house. Well, not really, but I did go outside first thing at 6:30 a.m., pre-run, to grab the paper and found this on the front of the Life Section…..
And, a great article about me and the Shut Up and Run blog…check it out online HERE unless you want a personal copy. I’m going to 7-11 to buy them all. I might also pick up a Slurpee and 1/3 lb. Big Bite. Wonder if I still get an employee discount from those two shifts I worked that summer at the beach. Breakfast of champions. Talk about massive dumps!
I love that the phrases “runners mess their pants” and “take massive dumps” can be found within the first few paragraphs of the article. I am nothing if not authentic. I am shocked our local paper would print the word dump if it wasn’t in relation to a truck or a cake (ever heard of dump cake? Despite the name it’s really good). Our little paper might only have a circulation of 21,000 but I’m not complaining.
Today is also the day I interview Dean K. by phone. I busted out a quick 8 miles this morning to calm the nerves. Not sure why I’m jittery. He’s just a man, right? Not a god or something. I keep telling myself to imagine him in his underwear like I learned on the Brady Bunch (remember the Driver’s Seat episode where Jan is nervous presenting in front of people, and Mike gives her the advice to picture them in their underwear?). But, then I get all frazzled again because it’s Dean in his underwear. Need I say more?
Stay tuned later this week when I’ll post the interview!!
