JENN: Happy post Halloween, everybody! We hope you all had a fantastic holiday, full of candy and tricked out gourds.
So M, did you run last week?
MOON: Affirmative. Getting “ready” for a 5K. No big deal, but I’ll be running with friends and that always makes me nervous/breathe funny.
JENN: Awww. You always seem to run fine with me! You wound up smoking me during the Tinker Bell Half. Of course, I was breathing funny at the time…
MOON: Well, I’m used to you! 😛
JENN: Ah, love. ^_^
MOON <3 <3 <3…. 😀
Christian will be running with me and he’s pretty fast.
JENN: Psh, boyfriends. With their muscles and their speed and nonsense.
MOON: I KNOW. He runs maybe… on occasion. Seven minute mile? Psh, no big deal.
JENN: That’s it. We need to start taking testosterone injections. It’s the only way.
MOON: May I remind you I am on the up and up concerning testosterone. Not helping me much!
JENN: Ah well. I guess we’ll just have to stick to, like, training and stuff.
This might sound a bit strange, but since I cut all my hair off I have been running with much more ease!
JENN: A reverse Samson!
MOON: You know me, breaking biblical conventions since 1987… I think it’s because I don’t have to worry about my hair constantly coming out of the hair tie, going lopsided, generally flopping around everywhere. It’s nice, though. I can actually use hair pins FUNCTIONALLY. As in, they STAY IN. Pretty sweet.
How was your week?
JENN: Pretty low key. I felt pretty good post-marathon, but I did have some mild soreness so I didn’t run at all until last weekend. And even then they were short-ish runs. But this makes sense because while I am powering down post-marathon, I am powering up for the WINE AND DINE HALF MARATHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!
Ask me what I’m doing Friday morning. Go on, ask me.
MOON: Hmmm……! What ARE you doing on Friday morning?!
JENN: I’M GOING TO DISNEY WORLD!
MOON: GASP! SRSLY? How long will you be there for?
JENN: Five days!
MOON: Woo! Have any goals?
JENN: Have an AWESOME TIME. I mean, sure, I’d love to knock out a new PR, but given that the race is two weeks after my first marathon, I really don’t know how my performance will be affected.
Oh, I know! My goal is to shut down the Epcot after party. There’ll never be a better time to ride lineless!
MOON: Ha! Remember to ride my favorite ride for me!
JENN: Of course! I’ll say hi to Gary Sinise, Capcom.
MOON: Also let Ms. Dench know I miss her and I channel those sleeping monk scribes daily.
I am rather sad I will not be running with you.
JENN: Next time! I’ll drag you back to WDW yet!
JENN: And on that happy note: roundup!
