When You Are Supposed to be Marathon Training but Just Want to Marathon Watch Netflix

TextThe other day I was chatting with a friend about Seinfeld- it’s a great show and he asked me what episode he should watch that night. I spouted off a bunch of favorites but then I remembered exactly what episode he needed to see. The one about the NYC Marathon! Ha it’s hilarious.

Half Marathon today. Netflix marathon tomorrow.

Who is going to hold this sign out for me come November? So how about we “marathon” shows about the marathon! Here are some funny episodes to get into the running spirit!

 

So of course #1 is Seinfeld S7E5 – The Hot Tub

Elaine host’s a runner who last time slept through his alarm and missed the marathon. So this year she and Jerry go to every precaution to get him to wake up in time! (UH this is my nightmare!)

special mention S7E9- The Sponge. It’s an iconic episode!  Kramer signs up to participate in a charity Aids walk and Jerry doesn’t think he’s going to make it.

 

#2 How I Met Your Mother S2E15 – Lucky Penny

#7 The Office S4E1- Fun Run

Michael hosts a fun run for rabies after he hits Meredith with his car. So he has to carbo load fettuccine Alfredo immediately before running the 3 miles

 

Or you know, you could watch a documentary with actual knowledge about the sport. But these shows are funny!

If You Don’t Like Your Fate…

Have you guys ever listened to the musical Aida? I’m in love with it! (remember how I listen to show tunes at the gym?) But there’s a line in the song “Enchantment Passing Through” that I’ve been thinking about lately:

If you don’t like your fate, change it. You are your own master, there are no shackles on you. So don’t expect any pity or understanding from this humble palace slave.

It’s a brand spankin’ new year. 2017. There are no shackles; we’re in charge of our own fate. So how do we want this year to go??

 

 

 

Break Up Playlist: Expect Better

hotex

A few of my close friends know that I was dating someone. And that that someone dumped me on my big behind. It’s fine… I mean it sucks but it was for the best. He had good reasons and we’re going to be “friendly.” (Guys, don’t get your honey where you get your money!) The point is, I’ve been wallowing and feeling generally blue the way you do after a guy you like says “see ya” and I’ve been playing saaaad songs at the gym. Sadder than normal.

Yesterday I thought to myself, F THAT! I’m a bad ass lady who deserves better from a guy and better from myself! So I switched off the bummer songs and created a new playlist! So far I’ve got

You know I’m No Good – Amy Winehouse

Kiss with a Fist – Florence + the Machine

Pumpkin Soup – Kate Nash

Dirty Laundry – Bitter:sweet

How to Be a Heartbreaker – Marina and the Diamonds

Our Time – Lily Allen

Water Under the Bridge – Adele

Trouble – Iggy Azalea ft. Jennifer Hudson

What other songs would you add?? 

 

p.s. If you wanted to hear the sad songs, on repeat was

I’ll Never Fall in Love Again – Promises Promises soundtrack

All I Ask – Adele (She makes both lists!)

She Used to be Mine – Sara Bareilles/ Waitress

See I’m Smiling AND Still Hurting – The Last 5 Years soundtrack

My Apartments Very Clean Without You – Garfunkel and Oats

 

Dark times guys. Dark times. Good songs tho. Gym bud AL is real glad they’re not playing anymore though. He puts up with so much.

10K Tunes

I am woefully ill-prepared for the PF Chang’s 10K on Sunday. Woefully! Why do I keep doing this, you guys??

The only thing I am prepared for is my playlist. 🙂 Here are the tunes:

Pop Songs Playlist

Recently a few people have been asking my what I listen to at the gym and I’ve always loved reading other people’s playlists (like Muncher Cruncher’s!) so I thought I’d share my current one.

Guys, warning. When it’s my turn to put on music at my gym, the boys will groan. They think I got some weird taste. And I kinda do! 😉 I have a good time though. But to keep the peace, I put together a “pop playlist” they can’t get too mad at. LOL
