Out and Back


So FUNNY (My parents and Little Studs Grandparents) Tall Grandpa became Follower #333.. Tall Grandma was #331.. Guess I had to impress them enough to hit Follow, took you long enough :) (Just kidding)

Had a GREAT run today. AC (Alex the Canadian) was a little late, he peaked his head out in his work clothes and said "Can you wait?" Totally... I got a VERY LONG stretch in. And off we went. It was a beautiful day, cool and dry. The conversation flowed, pace was steady...then we passed a large Garbage trailer.. STINK!! Wow that was Gross... Sped up a little to get away from the stink. We talked about kids names and I even got a quick history lesson.

I am having a TOUGH time. My favorite 6 mile route is blocked by flood berms and I cannot find a good 6 mile route. I should not complain because there are some pretty great paved trails near my office...I just MISS my old route. UGH!! It was better running with my buddy. He is pretty funny and very encouraging.

On the way back we noticed a billboard for Blue Moon Beer, hmmmm.. Oh the weekend.. Today I am with my Bloggy and Fleet Feet buddies on a Long run. Can't wait. Full report on Monday...as I will be out of Bloggy land this weekend...

  • HUGE Thanks to Bondiband headbands for the amazing package of freebies they sent Tall Mom....look for a Giveaway soon!! I love my "Run Like a Mother!" headband, full review on Tuesday. This company is quickly becoming a Tall Mom Favorite. If you want to buy your own Bondiband go to Katye's Fundraiser HERE.
  • HAPPY WEEKEND!!

Oh my gosh - the headband is too cute. I am going to check out the site as soon as I finish this post. Running with a buddy sure does make the time go fast and from the sounds of it - you haven't been out on too many solo runs this year. Way to go.

Glad G-Ma and G-Pa are your followers - they were probably hanging back to make it #333.

You have to love a beer that is served with an orange slice . . . Enjoy the Blue Moon

5 Miles 2 Empty said...

yay for 333 followers! I think Tall GPa was just waiting so he could be 333!! :)

Hope you had a great run this AM, sorry I missed out but I promise, those long runs will bring me begging to join! :)

Have a great weekend!

Molly said...

Blue Moon, yum. I saw K's bondi band fundraiser yesterday, I'm buying a bunch for myself and as gifts! but I'll still enter your giveaway....: )

TMB @ RACING WITH BABES said...

Seriously, I need that bondiband ... Run Like a Mother is our team name! Love it!

Hope you find a new 6 mile loop soon! Have a good weekend!

Indi said...

Absolutely love the new band!! I have such problem with my hair when I run. Its much shorter than yours and tends to do the weirdest things when i get all sweaty running. should check out the site. Isn't it weird how we get used to the comfort of a well know running route. I've missed mine due to all the weather and can't wait to get them back! Have a great one!

Velma said...

Love it!!!!! I hope you have a great weekend!!

marathonmaiden said...

Tricia said...

Aimee (I Tri To Be Me) said...

That's too cute about your G & G being followers! :)

I am a huge fan of Bondi Bands. I have two already, but I was just on the site yesterday and was thinking about ordering some for my sister and I. We're both doing our first marathon this fall (Denver Rock 'n' Roll) and I thought it would be cute if we both had a "Run Like a Mother" band to wear! I'll have to check out Katye's site if I decide to buy some!

Stephanie said...

I LOVE Bondi Band. I just got my I love running, I hate running band last week! I love Run Like a Mother, so cute!

Marlene said...

I'm loving the Bondi Band! It totally suits you.

BB said they'd send me some goodies too... can't wait for it to arrive. :)

TOO cute that your grandparents are followers. I don't think mine know how to use a computer. :p

onelittletrigirl said...

None of my grandparents even know how to use a computer!!!

I have so many bondibands...been collecting them since I first saw them in 2008- I love them!

Steel Springs said...

Cute new headband!

Libby said...

I think tall grandpa deserves a prize for being #333 :) Cute Bondi Band!

Allie said...

Hey, we match! I have the same one (only in black), I had to buy mine though. How do I get people to send me free stuff?

ChristieisaRunner said...

I will check out Bondibands soon. I love seeing the new things you share. I really want a pair of those cute pink recovery socks.

Lisa said...

You always take the best pictures!

I just ordered a bondi band for my daughter and I. Looking forward to reading your review.

So cool that your parents are followers of your blog!

Love the headband! It's so you!

Shells said...

Digging the Bondiband! I'll have to check out their site as well.

Bummer about your usual favorite 6 mi route. Have you thought about trying something totally new and different? Sometimes making up entirely new routes is refreshing.

Kasey said...

Love the great headband! and how great to get to enjoy the company of another running friend! I love to run with others- it makes it so much more enjoyable for me! Have a great day!

I Run for Fun said...

That's funny. Very few of my friends follow my blog, though they comment occasionally!

Love your bondiband look! Very hip.

Megan said...

Ha! My parents don't even read my blog much less follow.

Christina said...

Great headband!

Alisa said...

All the routes near me are hilly, I'd love to find a good 6-er that doesn't involved going up or down any hills =).

Maddy from Gotta Run! swears by those headbands. Headbands always fall off my head =).
