5 Things I Won't Be Doing and a VLOG!



What I won't be doing over the next few days:

1. A Race I Thought I Wanted to Do. Remember I told you Ken and I signed up for the lottery for the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon? Well the good news is we both got in!! The bad news is I should have checked the cost beforehand. Do you know it costs $750 per person?? As in, you pay $750 to jump off of a ferryboat and swim 1.5 miles in freezing, shark infested waters with a current that can take you down to the depths of hell? Okay, I'm being dramatic. But, we won't be doing it. Which is a bummer cause I wanted to, but I kind of also want to buy groceries and pay my mortgage and go to Paris.

2. Voting on November 8th. Before you get all irritated that I am not doing my civic duty - in your face!! I already voted by mail! The only draw back is I won't get one of those I voted stickers, but I can live with that, because apparently there is a sticker for everything in this world.

3. Celebrating My Kid's Birthday. In 18 years I have never missed Sam's birthday and I have never missed the opportunity to remind him of the day he came out of my vagina, Well, now he's 900 miles, away, turning 19 and doing God knows what. His birthday is Thursday and he will be in Arizona. And, I will not. Boo. Unless I decide to surprise him (Sam, if you are reading, that is 100% a joke so don't start freaking out).

Because moms and babies should always have matching overalls

4. Running In Colorado This Weekend. That is because on Thursday I'm going to Virginia for JMU's homecoming! Ken and I have mapped out some stellar trail runs in the Shenandoah Valley, so follow along on Instagram or something.

5. Looking in Car Windows When I Run. I was severely traumatized yesterday on my run. Ken and I and were cruising along minding our own businesses on a street in our neighborhood. We came up to a parked car a with a guy sitting in it. I always am curious why people are sitting in parked cars, so I looked in. Ewww.......let's just say he was not the only person in the car. The other person was doing something that required them to be laying down, kind of in his lap. Get my drift? At 8:00 a.m. in broad daylight.

I had fun making this VLOG, although vlogs aren't exactly my thing. Anyway, sorry for the lack of audio quality. Just pretend I am sitting by a waterfall. I am just trying to figure this all out. But, if you care to watch, you will get the point. And, don't even ask why I am on the stairs. I really don't know. 





That's all I got.

Tell me one thing you will not be doing in the next few days.

Ever tried a subscription box service?

SUAR

Disclosure: POPSUGAR sent me this Must Have Box to try.

  1. I loved the vlog! The weather here in VA should be great for your weekend at JMU. The leaves will be beautiful too on the trails. Enjoy the weekend. I'm heading up to DC for MCM.

  2. I won't be running or walking on 2 feet the next few days or weeks... broke my foot in the 11th mile of the Staten Island half marathon on the 9th. Yes, I finished. It didn't hurt that bad. Yes my time was horrific. I don't care. I got my 5th medal of the 5 borough series!!

    1. How did you break it?? You are a badass that you finished. One determined person you are.

      Delete
    2. I have no idea how I broke it. I was walking by then because the weather was just MISERABLE and I took a step and felt a pop. It wasn't in a pothole or a hard landing or anything just a normal step. It was just slightly painful but I could keep going. By that point I think everyone gave up and no one was coming for us!!

  3. No idea what I won't be doing, but I will be doing an ungodly amount of chores, training, work, and things that are not fun. I have tried a few subscription boxes. Blue Apron was great, but my fiance would not eat any of the meals, so cooking 2 dinners was not so great. Also tried ipsy, but I am kind of too lazy to try hard with makeup so that didn't work out. Lastly, sock fancy. That one was my favorite. Who doesn't want a fun pair of socks in the mail every month?

  4. Haha, you must have been running in my forest preserve because I see stuff like that when I run there. But if the cars are backed in, well, those guys are looking for something different...

  5. Hey, if you still want to jump from a ferry and swim to the mainland, you can just do the straight up swim from Alcatraz hosted by the South End Rowing Club for I think $180. I did this in 2001 and it's still one of the best travel races I've done in my life. I love remembering it and think it was worth what was probably like $100 at the time (I was in grad school, it was a lot of money for me I recall).

  6. I loved your vlog! I have 2 daughters that steal my things, everything from makeup to shampoo to my underwear. Yes I said underwear! Thankfully the worst offender is away at college so I haven't had to go commando in a while! I used to get Birchbox which was makeup and was great. But cancelled after a year or so. It was fun to get but realized I could spend the money on other things.

  7. The one thing that I won't be doing in the next few days is running. Boo! Hiss! I've done something to my knee that requires a few days rest so that I don't make it worse.

  8. I won't be buying any groceries in the next few days - we are moving out of our Hawaiian rental home, back to So Cal for a while.

  9. I tried StitchFix for a while. I loved the clothes and it was fun getting a box full of surprises, but I work at home now so my wardrobe is basically running clothes and yoga clothes.

  10. I think it would be fun to interview each and every person that actually does the Alcatraz Tri. They'd have to be both really rich and really crazy!!

  11. Love the vlog and the sticker!!! haha I will HOPEFULLY not be getting sick. The family is spreading a bug and I fear I'm next. 💀😳

  12. I'm going to a 25th wedding anniversary party this weekend, and I won't be wearing normal party clothes. The party dress code: wedding dress, bridesmaid dress, suit or tux. Fun!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh wow, $750 for Alcatraz? bummer. Love the vlog - and had to giggle that I'm in good company when I saw you pull out the peepers to read. ;)

  14. I'll be watching our Chicago Cubs in the World Series! Oh, and a Saturday morning run and possibly some time in the gym tonight and Sunday. What I won't be doing? Drinking coffee. I'm prepping for a Whole30 starting Tuesday. I will likely be very crabby.

  15. I won't be running this weekend :( Two weeks ago I fell on a slippery boardwalk and landed hard on my tailbone, during a trail race. I finished the race but it is super painful. Thankfully, nothing is broken as I need to start training for a marathon soon.

  16. Love the idea of Popsugar. I had never heard of it before but what a great idea as a gift to give a friend who has everything. (And who doesn't like to look forward to getting goodies in the mail?) Thank you!

  18. I will NOT be doing what you saw happening in the car. At least, not in a car in broad daylight!! I love subscription boxes! Bulu has snacks and different supplements, Allure magazine has great beauty products and Fab Fit Fun has all kinds of cool things!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Haven't done a subscription box but always thought it would be kind of fun. Like Christmas once a month

  20. I will not be participating in Halloween in the next few days. I've never really liked it, and my husband can take our son (only kid under 16 in our house) to do the candy begging thing.
    I will also not be beating myself up for the above, or for being overweight, or for anything else. I'm making a pledge to myself - don't self-talk anything you wouldn't say to your adult daughters.

  21. So, he was pulling lice out of her hair? Ewww.

  23. Excited my life is back My husband and I have been together for almost 11 years in October. The way we met wasn’t the best way since we both had relationships. We ended our relationships to be together (or so I thought we BOTH did). As soon as I ended up pregnant with our first baby, I find out he was cheating with his EX! My world went upside down. It was very hard for me since I was pregnant and hurt. Over the years I just kept forgiving him over and over again of not only multiple affairs, but of his accusations of me being unfaithful and disrespecting me. We now have 3 kids and I just completely felt neglected and felt low of myself. I had my own affair… It has not been easy for BOTH of us to overcome. Somehow over the last few weeks we have been working together to move on. We are now moving out of state. I love my husband and I am positive he loves me. I am going to try and show him this approach. Somehow we were already doing it! We have a better communication than we’ve had in years! We are learning how to speak calmly out feelings and concerns. It hasn’t been peachy, but I can see that we both are starting to respect eachother. We care for each other’s feelings. We have US a main priority. We aren’t taking counseling, but somehow we see that little by little we seem more comfortable with eachother. Sometimes we may notice how good it is going and may step back, but helping eachother out by holding and saying it’s ok to be happy again. I love my family. and my husband and i need to keep my marriage save with him from other women so i have to seek for a love spell to keep our marriage stronger so i contacted Dr happy who help me to keep my marriage save and secure from other women am very happy today coz my husband love me more and more like ever before, we are living as one big family again bless Dr happy for what he did to me and my husband if you need help contact him too he is real and 100% guarantee ok so email him at : happylovespell2@gmail.com call +2348133873774 about his service and web site: http://happyspelltemple.webs.com/

  24. Excited and extremely happy, and thankful that my marriage with my husband has been restored. me and my husband have been married of 22 years together 23. After i found him texting a coworker and questioned him, he said they were just friends but 3 wks later he told me he didnt love me anymore that he was in love with her and that i made him feel bad about himself and she didnt. He left home for 2 wks came home and left 2 wks later. Been gone for 3 1/2 months now. Hes been going to bars, calling women, lying like crazy, drinking like a fish and hasnt spoken to the kids the whole time hes been gone. His whole personality has changed. We believe he is going thru some sort of mid life crisis. Its crazy, he is acting like a person that we dont know anymore. Is it possible to get my marriage back. Because I know that he is going thru some crazy thing right now Im finding it very hard to let go. I still love him. How can I save my marriage and family when my husband is in the middle of a mid life crisis and wont listen to my or anyone else. We are so confused. i try to communicate with him but still hang off the phone on me,I love my family. and my husband and i need to keep my marriage save with him from other women so i have to seek for a love spell to keep our marriage stronger and safe so going online one day on facebook, i saw a prayer point, and a website say if you need your ex back, save your marriage, and fight your husband from divorce. i was so very happy a hopeful again that i can get back with my husband after i saw this website so i read this testimony of this website on how he help save his marriage nd i was excited to give a try so i contacted him and give him all the reason why i need his help, and he assured me that with-6 good hours of his spell that my husband will come back home to me so i believe and trust him coz he was like a father to me also a man of his words so today am happy that my husband who has been away for 3 1/2 months now with his coworker is back home with apology plz you all should help me and thank Dr happy he really save my life and my marriage so email him if you need help also on happylovespell2@gmail.com call +2348133873774 about his service and web site: http://happyspelltemple.webs.com/

  28. Been sitting eyes wide open behind these four walls, hoping you'd call It's just a cruel existence like there's no point hoping at all. Baby, baby, I feel crazy, up all night, all night and every day Give me something, oh, but you say nothing. What is happening to me? I don't wanna live forever, 'cause I know I'll be living in vain. And I don't wanna fit wherever. I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home.Thank you
