Thursday Thoughts: January 29

A sentence or two per picture for you on this fine Thursday morning.  Happy Birthday, Kansas, by the way, 154 years young today!

A few weeks ago, James and I sat down and made some business cards for My Brave Wings. I feel so important and official.  I’ll be handing these out to everyone, because I am super official now.Photo Jan 23, 2 59 10 PM

Jazzy is just so dang cute, I could just eat him up. James sent me these pictures the other day, he took them in the morning when he was getting ready for work.

Jasper was not particularly happy about his squirrel on his head, but he didn’t move for several minutes.  This was one evening this week as James and I binge watched the first two seasons of House of Cards, in preparation for the third season which comes out on Netflix at the end of next month.  By the way, if you have Netflix and haven’t seen House of Cards, please stop what you’re doing, go home, and watch it now.  It’s an amazing show.

Sunday, James and I went up to the Hunt Midwest Subtropolis so I could run the Groundhog 10k.  I PR’d my 10k time by over a minute, and the race was an interesting one.  Read my recap here.

I saw these tweets on Monday, by the amazing USA runner and 2014 Boston Marathon winner, Meb Keflezighi, I can’t even imagine, 400-500 miles every 3 weeks.  I don’t even DRIVE that far in 3 weeks.  That’s 17 pairs of running shoes per year, minimum.  Good thing Meb has a sweet shoe sponsor.

It was in the mid-70’s in JANUARY, for part of this week.  70’s, in January.  Jasper and I spent some time on the balcony on Monday afternoon.  Back in Hays, where I’m from, it was a record breaking 86 degrees on Tuesday.  This is as far as Jasper has ventured “out” from the balcony, his front paws and his head through the rails.  I stop him if he tries to go further, which he has only done once.  He doesn’t try to jump up either, but occasionally he looks up like he’s thinking about it.

I came across this adorable must have Nessie Ladle the other day, and it is quite possibly the cutest and best thing ever.  It is a soup ladle in the shape of the Loch Ness Monster, and she even has little feet.  I’ve ordered one of course, but it’s on back order until May.  Read about it here, and order it here.

Last night at yoga, I successfully did my first block assisted headstand  I’ve been going to yoga for 4 weeks now, at Life Spring Yoga in Life Spring Med Spa, and my amazing teacher Maylo has been such a blessing.  I feel so comfortable with her, and the energy she gives just fills me up during class.  I’m confident if I keep going to class, and keep practicing, I’ll be doing unassisted headstands in no time!

This weekend is going to be a busy one.  I’ll run tonight with the Groupies, then  I should get my car back tomorrow, after 2 weeks in the shop after my fender bender accident earlier this month.  I’m excited to drive my own car again, after driving a rental and James’ car for the last 2 weeks.  Saturday, James and I will go visit friends in Lee’s Summit and go to dinner, then Sunday I will volunteer as a course monitor with a friend at the Kick Off 5k at Arrowhead Stadium! I’ll have to fit a couple runs in there too.

Have a fun and safe weekend.  Are you watching the Super Bowl? Who will you be rooting for? Seahawks, Patriots, or Commercials?

  1. I ran the Kickoff 5K last year (I had won an entry) in 13 degree weather. No indoors. No heated tent.

    I replaced my latest running shoes in December, and now I have about 100 miles on them, but my legs and ankles don’t like them, so I’m alternating runs with my old pair (that had 300+ miles on them). My pair prior to these (Hokas) had 600 miles when I retired them, and I still knock around town in that old pair. When it’s time to replace my shoes again (Rock the Parkway), I’ll probably go back to Hokas.
