100 Words Saturday: Pre Race

Oh hey there.

How are ya?

I’m well. Thanks for asking.

Carb-loaded last night.

Yes- Goose Island counts as part of the carb loading. And yes- I’m having a hard time letting go of summer.

Went to bed early. Slept in.

Fought crowds down at the Chicago Half Marathon Expo at Navy Pier to pick up my race stuff.

Three hours of my life and all I got was a t-shirt.

Lame. Not the shirt- the time it took.

But it had to be done. Because tomorrow is the big day!

Until then?

Family time with my cousins. Work (grrrr). Resting.

And ipod updates. Any and all new music suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.

Please and thank you.


100 Words: Comedy Show Edition

So about last night…

We ended up having our “few” drinks at a show named Bye Bye Liver.

An interactive drinking play.

This is the best idea ever. It was hilarious! Unless you’re hoping for a low key weekend.

Then, not so much.

Ah well. I still feel ok enough to hit up some Jillian strength training. And maybe even the gym.

I won’t be accepting invites to go out tonight, so don’t even try.

Leave me to my red box. And maybe a glass of wine.

Please and thank you.

Oh… and GO BULLS!

Had to throw that in…

100 Words Saturday: Rainy Day Edition

It’s about to rain.

It’s been raining for the last 2 days.

It bodes well for sleeping (awesomely so). But Amy running in the rain? Doesn’t happen extremely often.

What? I’m sort of prissy.

Come on. You knew this.

Luckily, I have my trusty gear to help a sista’ out.

I'm really not a hat person. My ears stick out weird.

And no, I will still not talk about the Mizzou game or the NCAA tourney.

Still hurts my heart.


Somewhere between a 10 or 11-mile run. I figure if I can at least get to 5 or 6 without the skies opening, I should be in good shape.

I’ll keep ya posted.

100 Words – Fancy Free Edition

I’m prepping for my 8-mile run. The original plan said 9. But I’ve had a few setbacks and lulls in training. 8 is the new goal.

Whatev. I’m well-rested and ready.

Last night was spent doing important things.

No worries- I painted my nails BEFORE the second glass. That is key.

Like carb loading, drinking wine and painting nails. Important things. Obviously.So I sit here. With freshly painted nails. And coffee (alas, the wine is gone).

Ok, so I really just tried to "repair" the nail color than completely redo. I'm so lazy.

Perfect Saturday.

I don’t know how it’ll end. All I know is to be at the bar by 2:30 for the game.

And that, my friends, is the best part of being young and single and fancy free.

Happy Saturday!

100 Words: Christmas Eve Edition

Merry Christmas Eve from St. Louis, my friends!Yes, I am in St. Louis. Not Hawaii.

Bummer, right?

It’s ok. I’ll be driving to the ‘rents house soon. Last night was spent with the besties in St. Louis at “Aloha Christmas”- an annual party their friend does.

I fully supported the idea.

I will also be fully supporting Panera’s efforts to caffenaite America very very soon.

Because yesterday… whew. Long drive. Long party.

Tired Amy.

However, I just wanted to say I made it safely across the Illinois border into Missouri. I know you were concerned. Which I appreciate.

Laters! :)

100 Words- Thanksgiving Edition

Happy Thanksgiving!

At this very moment, I’m very thankful to have gotten to sleep in today.

Mostly because I was thankful to stay up late and watch red box and drink red wine and be all lazy.I’m also thankful for Vince Vaughn. FYI.

And to be able to leave work early yesterday in order to sneak in a decent gym session before said laziness.

It’s nice to always try to balance yourself out, right?

Well I’m gonna go and watch some parade action. While being thankful for coffee and anticipating a feast of all feasts later on.

Enjoy your holiday!

100 Words- I Stayed In Edition

I stayed in last night.And watched my Red Birds win the World Series.

Red wine to celebrate a victorious cardinal nation. Hell yes.

I also stayed in to rest up for an 8-mile run today.

The pace was kept around 8:45 and I still had energy at the end of the last mile. This makes me feel oh so good about next week’s 15k! (Yes, I was nervous about it.)

Finally, I stayed in so I could be all rested up for tonight.

It IS Halloween weekend afterall…

Remember last year?Let’s see if we can top it… ;)

Happy Weekend!

100 Words Saturday- Cards Win Edition


The Cards are moving on to the NLCS!

I went to a friend’s house to watch last night. They had no toilet paper. Clearly it was an all boy household.

TP arrived at some point in the night. Whew!

But that’s trivial. Because CARDS WIN!

Anyway, I kept it chill because college football is taking over my afternoon.

That and I’ve got a 6-mile run planned with my friend beforehand.

So I’m awake and psyching myself up.


Coffee and catching up on Jersey Shore.Oh Snooki, you need to get it together.

Vince thinks so, too.

Later, ya’ll!

100 Words- Lethargic Edition

Energy has been lacking for the last few days.

Not sure why. 

I’ve cancelled the last two days of workouts. And sat on my couch instead.

Or laid on my couch. Either/or.

Friends tried to get me out last night.

I politely said I had plans.

With a couple of Red Box movies. And a bottle of wine.A new wine. Because I was feeling mischievious…And leftovers. Because that was a lie. I was actually feeling quite boring.

Hopefully this lethargic feeling goes away. It’s driving me nuts.

Plus my friend will hate if I cancel our run… again. Ugh.

The Nothing Post

Last night I did nothing. Absolutely nothing.

I turned down plans. Ignored texts.

Because it was an exhausting week. And I’d rather be here: Besides, I need to redo my pedicure before another night out. My feet are gross.

Correction: All feet are gross. Not just mine.

So instead, I rented Cedar Rapids.

Is it weird that Ed Helms has mannerisms in the way that he talks to remind me of an ex-boyfriend?

Yeah, you’re right. That’s weird.

The movie was good. I laughed my ass off.

While drinking and eating this:What’s better than carry out woon sen?

Nothing. But leftover woon sen is a close second.

Yes, that’s the Jersey Shore marathon playing in the background. What? I hadn’t started the movie yet…

Then I passed out on my couch went to bed at 10.

Lame? Yes. But I’m on my second cup o’ joe and am about to meet up with a friend to kill a run.

So I don’t care.

Because I do what I want.

Happy weekend!
