Three Things Thursday

1. Thanks to everyone who entered the Sof Sole Giveaway. The lucky winner is:

lilmeg at Worth a Tri

Congrats and thank you Sof Sole!


2. Bedhead meets Emz:

 
I hope she doesn't sue me.


3. I may have mentioned that we leave Saturday morning for Antigua (eeeeee!) and I'd like to squeeze in my long run first. Tomorrow I will attempt the unthinkable: barring any unforeseen circumstances (i.e. weather) I will be commuting to work on foot - approximately 29 KM (18 miles), 27 KM of which will be run in the same direction on the same road. I've done this once before, only that time hubs drove me part way to shorten the route. And it wasn't January!

Needless to say, there is some preparation is involved. Clothing, "shower" essentials, food and my car need to be left at work today. I was able to able to borrow some safety gear from a friend since my collection is non-existent sparse. I also let a couple of co-workers know just in case they have to come looking for me!

Hopefully I'll be back with a good story tomorrow...


Happy Thursday (almost Friday)!

You're a machine. I hope that 27km stretch isn't a 400 series highway! Good luck, though I hardly think you need it.

That picture is hilarious!

Good luck with your run tomorrow. Sounds brutal. I have run home from work a couple times. It's only about 6 miles, but it's mostly on a straight, busy, noisy, stinky road and it was horrible and so unenjoyable. Hope yours is better.

Awesome pic! I am so jealous of EMZ's abs. just a teeny tiny bit. lol
Have fun on vacation it sounds wonderful!
