Here are some things I learned today.
If coffee is really too old to reheat but you reheat it anyway, it tastes like pencil shavings. (I knew this, but tried it again today and confirmed it…..)
Two doodles are way more fun than one.
Dogs can be added and loved, but they don’t replace.
No matter how young you feel, your body has a way of reminding you that you are NOT that young.
Melissa McCarthy IS going to be back on the new Gilmore Girls show and I’m very excited!
There are people who actually believe everything they see on Facebook.
The sound that Huskey’s make is just creepy.
I read this article today.
I’d really like you to tell me what your opinion is:
People Are Calling This Runner A Cheater For What She Did
For many runners, the Boston Marathon is the ultimate goal, both because of the history and the fact that it requires a qualifying time to be considered for entry. Some train for years to make it, others qualify but don’t make it past the sliding registration process, while others might never hit their age-group mark. Obtaining a bib is a special affair. But what about when something conflicts with your run, and you choose to hand your bib off to a friend to enjoy the experience that you now have to skip? Happens all the time, right? While it’s frowned upon with most every race, it’s deemed unacceptable with races like Boston. However, one blogger found herself in such predicament when she was unable to make it to the starting line of last year’s Boston Marathon due to pregnancy. She had rightfully earned her spot into that year’s race but chose to hand off her bib to a friend who arguably did not meet the qualifying standard. Her friend ran under the blogger’s bib number, finishing in a time that would qualify the blogger for the 2016 race.
According to blog Marathon Investigation, the blogger and original owner of the 2015 bib proceeded to register for the 2016 race, offering her friend’s time from 2015 as her qualifying time. Through an anonymous tip, the BAA (governing body of the Boston Marathon) found out that the time entered was not actually run by the person registering, and she was banned from all future BAA events due to cheating.
No matter how slow I am and no matter if I ever run a race again, I really love to run.
Can you believe its the weekend already?
Keep moving, keep learning,
