My Aunt Debi gave me a very old FHSU shirt a while ago, I’m not sure how old it is, but probably from the late 90’s? I love the logo! I wore it in KC last weekend to celebrate FHSU Homecoming! Go Tigers!
I have a #throwbackthursday for today. A couple days ago my Timehop showed me a photo from 7 years ago, when Mom, Dad, Kristen and I went to a Huskers Game with Grandma and Granddad and Great Uncle and Aunt Lyle and Diann. We’ve gone to several games over the years, but it’s been a long time since we all went together. If I remember, the Huskers lost this game, but we still had a great time!The other day, there was something (someone) in my fridge that should not be in my fridge. Nearly every time I open the door, he’s there wanting to get in! I was putting water bottles on the bottom shelf, so the door was open for a couple minutes, and he took the opportunity to jump right in.
Last weekend, James saw a tweet by The Oatmeal, he was in KC and had a book signing in the Plaza. We didn’t really have much else going on, so we headed over to the Plaza, listened to him speak a little, and bought a couple books and had him sign them! He drew a blerch (and blerch butt) in my book!
If you don’t know who The Oatmeal is, his name is Matthew Inman, he is an internet comic and artist. James and I have liked reading his comics for a long time, and often send them back and forth to each other. James bought The Oatmeal’s first book, “5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin In the Mouth (And Other Useful Guides),” and I bought his most recent book, “The Terrible and Wonderful Reasons Why I Run Long Distances.”
It turned into a fun little outing, especially because after we met the Oatmeal and had our books signed, James treated me to Build a Bear to make Toothless! We both LOVE How to Train Your Dragon, and after the second movie was in theaters this summer, he saw that Build a Bear had them, but it was so popular it sold out immediately. He found out recently they were back in stock, and surprised me by going to get one!
ROYALS FEVER!! Yesterday, the Kansas City Royals made history by winning the ALCS and making it to the World Series for the first time in 29 years. They also set the record for 8 wins in a row in the Post Season, something never done before! Congrats, Kansas City, I’m so proud and excited to live in this city during this time. The energy around the city is amazing, there are signs up everywhere, the busses around town say “Go Royals,” the fountains are even blue. It’s truly an amazing time, and I’m proud to Be Royal!
Tonight, I can’t wait to take Mom and Kristen with me to the KCRC Groupies run, which happens to be at Martin City, which is close by; there will be free pizza and beer after! It’s shaping up to be quite a busy and fun weekend with the race! See my KC Half Marathon preview here. Good luck to everyone running the Kansas City Marathon this weekend, and to all other runners racing or running this weekend.
