Happy Friday! I wanted to share a fleeting moment of publicity that I experienced earlier this week. I am also going to join in a few of the many Friday Favorites linkups!
Almost famous (okay, not really)
Comcast Sportsnet Chicago had a special "Behind the Lens" broadcast of the Blackhawks game this past Wednesday. It was a very unique introspective. They displayed various snippets of the work that goes on behind the scenes to produce a smooth and informative broadcast. Clearly there was an unbelievable level of coordination and detail involved. However, the directors and staff made the telecast flow like a piece of cake.
Fans were asked to tweet their pictures and reactions from the broadcast. Yours truly did just that:
Here's a television shot from the Behind the Lens broadcast. Check out the familiar-looking tweet scrolling at the bottom!
Now if I may toot my own Blackhawks fan/Twitter horn for just a moment, this is actually the second time that one of my tweets has been shared on TV. Here is a screenshot from the first time, which was back in December:
And with that, my 2 seconds of fame are officially OVER!
Let's move on to some of my current favorites.
Honey Stinger Waffles
Honey Stinger had a booth at the Rock N Roll DC race expo. They caught my eye with an enormous array of waffle samples. (Note to all running expo vendors - if you provide product samples, I will come!)
WOW, are those waffles yummy! I am normally very partial to GU, with the occasional foray into Clif Shot gels. However, I couldn't resist picking up a few of the Honey Stinger waffles. I like them so much that I went onto Amazon and started a purchase subscription. These babies are going to give my GU and Clif Shot gels a run for the money (no pun intended).
For the longest time, my lower-body workout attire consisted entirely of plain black shorts, plain black capris, plain black tights. Not anymore! I love love LOVE the patterned workout bottoms that are all the rage this year. I can't get enough of them.
One of everything, please!
Adam and I were out to dinner earlier this week and the restaurant was playing a fantastic selection of 80s music. Best decade of music EVER. (The 60s are a close second, in my opinion.) I was inspired to start putting together an all-80s playlist for myself. Why did it take me so long to do this!?!? I can't wait to hit the streets in my running shoes with the dulcet tones of Foreigner, Journey, and so many others ringing in my ears.
Once again, one of everything, please!
Just a kid from Chicago
I saw this commercial the other day and it brought chills to my spine. I found it on YouTube and have watched it at least 10 times. It's especially meaningful to me since it is Chicago.
