Half #6 and some other random stuff

Happy Friday, beautiful people!!

  It's been a few days, so let me catch you up on me. I know I'm so interesting and you're just dying to know! Right?? 

 Anyway. This was my first full week of 100 mile ultra training. I run on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. I didn't get in all the miles I was supposed to, but this week will be much better!

 I don't know about you guys, but sometimes I have days where I'm barely hanging on. Yesterday was that day. I was able to get outside for a 3 mile run, and it was glorious. Just me and Daughtry.

 Here's the lowdown on my hair. It is crazy thick. And I love doing new things to it, so it's pretty damaged too. The other day I saw a curling iron while I was out shopping and thought hey, something I haven't tried before! So I bought it. And...this happened.
 Yea, that was fun. How the heck do people use these things? I'll just stick to my straightener from now on!

Sunday I'll be running the LSC half marathon. It'll be half #6. I can't wait! The morning temp is supposed to be 28, so I'm not looking forward to that. I detest cold weather!
 I ran this race last year and it rained and sleeted the whole time. It was pretty miserable. I'm thankful this time it'll be sunny. I somehow got an 18 minute PR and finished in 2:25. I'm hoping I can beat that time again!

  I'm feeling sorry for Charlie today. Doesn't he look pitiful? He got neutered yesterday so has to wear this thing so he doesn't lick himself and cause an infection...ewwww.

What are you doing this weekend?
Have you used a curling iron before?



  1. Good luck on the half!

    Don't have much plans this weekend. Wish I were racing!

  2. I haven't used that kind of curling iron for that very reason. I am even reluctant to use the round brush! And this weekend is going to be a catch up on all the c*ap that I didn't get done last weekend. lol

    1. I had no idea it gets so tangled like that! Have a good one girl!

  3. I could never use a curling iron like that one!! It would get stuck for sure! Try the smooth irons or even the barrel ones they have out know. My daughters love them!! Good luck on your half! Have a great weekend:)

    1. I sure didn't know these things got stuck! I will try one of those others ones. Thanks Teresa, you too!! :)

  4. i'm sorry, but I laughed at the photo of your hair meeting the curling iron!! That is exactly the kind of craziness that happens with my hair ALL the time!! :)
    love daughtry!!

  5. Good luck on your half - I can't wait to read all about it! Hope Charlie heals soon, poor guy!

  6. Kid-free weekend for us (thank you Nana!) so we are GOING OUT!

    I've never used a curling iron.

  7. awww..poor charlie! He looks better than my dog when he wears a cone..he doesn't know how to sit with the thing or walk up the steps..he keeps running into the step..Good luck on your half! Maybe the cold will help you run faster for another PR!

  8. Poor Charlie, indeed, but he is such a cutie! I wish he could come visit in December, too. :) Good luck on your half tomorrow.

  9. Found you on Facebook! Fab blog girl! I have a pup just like Charlie:) Poor guy, neuter cone is definitely not the best of times.

  10. What is with the prongs on the curling iron? Get a curling iron with no prongs and you should be good!! Used it last night to girl my hair for a night out! And BTW, you are my idol.. I can't even imagine a 100 mile go girl!
