Whimsy Wednesday

Quick post, blogging in taxi.
Yesterday I pigged out at the office BBQ then proceeded to have a gargantuan at Jimmy Johns for dinner. I felt like the Heavy in TF2
Nom nom nom
In my defense, 9 miles and an hour in the weight room gave me an appetite.
This morning I set out a little late so I cut my run from 10 to 9 miles. Recovery/easy pace. Every morning I think the gnats are the worst they have been and today was no different. Once it was light enough to see them, it was scary. Gnat tornadoes , walls, clouds. The faces on people running through them said it all.
Took me about 4 miles just to feel loosened up. I didn't even get my first wave until mile 3! Yikes!
Anywho, off to get my Pure Michigan on, so I won't be as prolific commenting on blogs, but I will read them!
What are you up to today? Do you like strawberry cream cheese?


  1. Ooh have fun in Michigan for the 4th (and your birthday)!

  2. Declan! Sorry I have been MIA, I am trying to catch up. Congrats on the hourlong workout in the weightroom! I don't do nearly as much strength training as I would like, unfortunately...
    Have a wonderful trip to Michigan and happy birthday!!! Yay for us July babies. =) Can't wait to hear more details and see pictures!!!

  3. Ahhh, gnat tornadoes sound horrendous! I ran into a wall of tiny bugs recently and had to turn around in literally 30 seconds. They were in my eyes, mouth, ears... everywhere! No fun.

    I'm not sure what "getting your Pure Michigan on" means, but if it means "going to Michigan," have fun!

    I'm not sure I've ever had strawberry cream cheese. I don't know that it sounds that appealing, though. I'm all for garlic-y/salty cream cheese!

  4. Once you entered the gnat world, there was no turning back. You look back and they are there too! SCARY

    Out in Chicago, we get a lot of commercials voiced by Tim Allen to visit Michigan (and the theme is Pure Michigan).

    Get some strawberry cream cheese and throw it on a bagel! NOM

  5. Emily! You get this ONE pass.

    Trying to get kid photos but she is such a busy body here!
