The Fairest Week In Review: 5/20

JENN: Did you run at all this week?

MOON: Hmm, I think another mile? The progress is rather slow over here...

JENN: Hey, that's one more mile than a lot of people manage!

MOON: Yes, but about 25 less than I usually do... XD I have been hunting for half marathons for the late summer, though!

JENN: Any prospects?

MOON: Hmm, there was one in Chicago that caught my eye. I think that was early september. I might have to go out there for school things, so it would be the two birds one stone idiom, right?

JENN: Indeed!

MOON: Did you run?

JENN: Yup, I got 'em in there. One session was pretty bad, but another was pretty darn good, so  hooray for averages! I'm still not as fast as I've been in the past, but baby steps.

I THINK I might try running outside once this week, see how that goes for me. Hopefully it's warm enough to prevent lung rebellion.

MOON: It's great outside! A little chilly for just hanging out, but perfect for a run.

JENN: Awesome. Here's hoping.

Any good music happening in your earspace of late?

MOON: Actually, yes! It's been about half melancholy and half electronicdancedancedance.

DANCE DANCE DANCE

JENN: Haha, that can be a good motivator for runs! I spent 40 minutes of my last run listening to the Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter" on repeat. Liz and I watched that 20 Feet From Stardom documentary last weekend and I got totally sucked into that song. They're right, the backup vocals are mesmerizing.

  1. Sorry. I have nothing of importance to say, but I just LOVE that scene from Scrubs. Pretty much any time they make an 80s reference, dance, sing, it's my favorite moment...so basically every episode! Keep on running! :)

    1. Haha, me too! Someone made a video of all of the times Turk dances set to "Safety Dance," and it's pretty much the best thing ever: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfS5F8WHUjM

    1. I'm not usually big fan of fruity cupcakes, but that new strawberry lemonade cupcake at the Contempo Cafe looks pretty good. Let's pop down there on our lunch break.
