The race-weather gods are poking fun at me again. Yours truly is running the Cinco de Miler this Saturday. Check out the weather forecast:
I seriously need to figure out how to put my rainmaking penchant to better use. Sigh.
Incidentally, some other runner friends have shared their penchants for blistering hot weather whenever they race. I wonder what would happen if we ran the same races together. Would we cancel each other out? Or would we just create a veritable steambath sauna?!?
Thanks to seeing the Blackhawks' amazing playoff pregame ice display, I've got a couple of new additions to my music playlist. No surprise where my inspiration comes from, eh? Check out the videos:
I love collecting the songs played at the United Center. Listening to them reminds me of the electrifying atmosphere at Hawks games. It's a great way to get myself fired up whenever motivation might be lacking.
I almost always pack a lunch for work. Yesterday, though, I had a huge craving for Chipotle - so I left my lunch in the fridge and went to indulge.
Has anyone ever seen the tips on how to get huge portions at Chipotle? I don't use every single suggestion, but thanks to that list I have definitely upped my value proposition. (One other tip I would add to the list is to ask for a mixture of all the salsas instead of just picking a single one.)
I am taking a training course next month on effective communication, focused on how to think on your feet.
The course prework asked us to come up with tough questions that we've frequently been asked. I have been scratching my head trying to think of examples.
It's to the point where I am actually considering submitting: "What are tough questions that you've frequently been asked?" as one of my examples. =D
I have seen women wearing men's running shoes several times in the past. I've even done it myself a few times. This is mainly because I have wide feet and men's shoes are wider in general.
I've never seen it the other way around, though... until recently.
I wear these Mizunos:
Granted, these shoes are a fairly gender-neutral color. However, I still did a double take when I saw them. I wonder why he chose to wear women's shoes?
