OH EM GEE TV

Alright… I admit it. I’ve been pretty blog-lazy lately. BUT it’s probably because I’ve been watching:

This…

Scandal on ABC

This..

Homeland on SHO

and…

House of Lies on SHO

These peeps have been entertaining me and also keeping me away from updating you. I’m pretty much caught up (and Ms. Rhimes has once again turned my world upside down in the last 3 minutes of the the Dec. 12th episode) so I’m back on here.

At the moment there’s a marathon in Dubai & team triathlon in Abu Dhabi on the horizon for next year. Will keep you posted on training as things progress.

In the mean time, check out those shows on Hulu Plus and SHO if you to wish to be entertained.

ETT out!

To Run or Not To Run!?!

… that was the question. It’s already been answered though… Honolulu Marathon, here I come!

While planning a winter vacation to somewhere sunny, I searched fervently for local race information stumbled across a nice little gem. I may be a weirdo, but to me it seemed only right that the Honolulu Marathon was going to take place smack dab in the middle of my island hopping extravaganza. I am most certainly going to hop my silly behind over to the starting line and get my run on. This is what vacations are all about… no?

What? You don’t run a 26.2-mile race when you go on vacation? Ok ok ok… I’m crazy for doing this, but I just can’t imagine when I would spend this much money just to compete in a race. I’ll have ample time to enjoy the islands as I taper my workouts. Right!?!

Speaking of workouts… it didn’t help that I decided to do this so close to race day. I mean, I’ve been running… but not with a real goal in mind. So I had to ramp up the efforts… I threw together a 25-day plan chock full o’ tempo runs, speed & strength work, along with some long runs. I’m six days into and although there is some familiar race preparation aching, my legs feel strong… and I’m psyched!

Trust me… you would be excited too… just imagine watching the sun rise over Diamond Head or running along Waikiki Beach! I’m giddy with excitement. I don’t, however, know how I feel about this scavenger hunt at the end of the race for my finisher’s medal and race shirt… but I think I can deal. It’ll be a new adventure… good or bad, I love adventure!

My goal is to try and catch up to ole Nicky Nick here and get his autograph...

Annnnnnddddd if nothing else, it’ll make for some wicked oceanside bikini pics… YEEEEEAAAAAAA BOYYYYYYYYY

 

Signing Off… ETT =)
