Texting: A Cautionary Tale

Ever wonder what can happen when two friends start texting?

Let's take a peek, shall we?
(I'm the blue bubble, just FYI)
And BOOM!

Look what we'll be doing in early March...(cue squeals of glee and fear)
13.1 miles baby!!

It's been far too long since my last race and I really, really, really am the type of slacker that needs a goal, and a goal with $$ on the line is even better. 

The Rock and Roll Half normally costs $90, which is kind of ridunkulous anyway, but since the Saints won their recent football game they offered a discount of a dollar off for every point scored, so by entering a special code we saved a whopping $55!!

That in itself made me giddy.

But then I remembered I'll have to, you know, actually train for this and, like, run regularly and stuff*.

That in itself made me pause.

So, my friends, let this serve as a cautionary tale to spontaneous texting.

In a good way.

P. S. Like re-re-re-commit to cross training with things like P90X. Ay, yi, yi. I started Tuesday with Chest & Back and can not fully straighten either of my arms ever since thanks to all the push-ups and pull-ups. Starting over is hard, good but hard.

  1. Thanks Anne! I'm excited to run (wog) through the streets of New Orleans.

    And it's one more state on my somewhat dormant goal list of running at least a half in each state--this will make four--if you count D.C. as one :) Ha!

  4. Fun! Should be easy course since so flat here. When March gets closer email me if you want to meet up for a latte in New Orleans or if Annelise is with you we could do something like the aquarium or insectarium etc with the kids.

  5. Charlton: Thanks, girl! I never thought I'd *be* a runner, but discovered my inner runner girl in my late-30s.

    Sincerely Anna: Small world!

    Natasha: I was so happy when I read about how flat the course should be--YAY! I haven't been to NO since I was 9 or 10, so I'm looking forward to seeing it again. I'll email you when it gets closer. :)

  6. woohoo! I laughed so hard at your post and our crazy jibber-jabber. Hey, I'll drag you if you drag me. If all else fails we will stop on the course at the corner coffee shop and sit! We are good at drinking coffee! haha

    We can do it! ...right?? Are we crazy?

  8. Heather: I'm sooooo glad you asked me! It's going to be a blast!! Even though we have to run 13.1 miles we'll get to see New Orleans while we do it.:)

    Denissa: Thanks, girl! Hahaha, I hope my discount doesn't give me license to not train like I should if more $$ were on the line. ;)
