Today’s a big day – we have our first AND second reader submissions to the blog. That’s right. People actually cared enough to see something funny, take a picture of it, and immediately call me to tell me they have perfect material for my blog. It’s like you guys are doing my work for me,… Continue reading Help me understand why “Aromas” are necessary
I’m a rather prolific blogger today, so just in case you missed it, here’s Part 2 of the OBX Marathon Weekend race report. Today is Thankful Things Thursday and I have no shortage of things to be thankful for. Today I ran the Cooper River Bridge in Charleston for the first time. I’ve had two great runs… Continue reading Cookie’s Song
After sleeping nearly 10 hours the night before the race (off and on, let’s be honest), I was pumped and ready to go on Sunday morning. I had no idea what lay in store for me in Marathon #4, but I knew I was ready to give it my best shot. For those of you… Continue reading “DID YOU THROW UP YET?” – OBX MARATHON WEEKEND PART 2 : NOVEMBER 13TH, 2011
I apologize for the extreme lack of chronological order of my race reports, but I figure it’s best to write the new ones while they are fresh in my memory. This past weekend, Kristen and I took a road trip to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Neither of us had ever been there before,… Continue reading “Which direction is the ocean?” – OBX Marathon Weekend Part I
After my big weeknight out at Saloon on Thursday night, I woke up hurting on Friday morning. I wasn’t packed for Savannah. My life was basically in shambles, which is pretty much the case about half the time. I went home to pack before meeting my mom, who was driving down from North Carolina on… Continue reading “What if you just didn’t run the race?” – The Rock ‘N Roll Savannah Half Marathon Race Report
Posted by Trexrunner I ran my first marathon on March 21, 2010. It was the best day of my life. For a little background, I decided to become a runner because I thought they looked cool. Literally, that’s the entire reason. I didn’t start really sticking with it until October 2009. Stresses in my personal… Continue reading They say you always remember your first time – The ING Georgia Marathon Race Report. | The T-Rex Runner
I know what you, my loyal blog readers (humor me here) are thinking as you read this title. You’re probably making this face, like Lauren. You might even want to shoot me with her gun. Or a real one. But I assure you, it’s not as bad as it sounds. I think. Let’s go back… Continue reading The one where I sleep in a stranger’s kitchen
I am the 99%, but not in the way that’s become so popular to talk about these days. I’m the 99%, RDub style – the nickname I’ll give one of my favorite coworkers. Before I explain, let me go on the record as saying I used to think I was really, really conservative. Like, Bill… Continue reading I am the 99%, thanks to my superior intellect.
Today was a really busy day. Work was crazy, I had a very long meeting, and then (hooray!) an appointment with a new chiropractor who I am hoping will fix all my back/life problems. You can read about the glorious Dr. Jimerson and how he is going to heal me here. Additionally, he happens to be very… Continue reading This is your brain on dissertation.
I am many things. I guess I’ve always known that, but over the past year, I feel like I’ve discovered something new about myself every day. Last week, for example, I discovered that I strongly resemble a Tyrannosaurus Rex. That’s right. Scrawny, generally useless upper body. Giant T-Rex legs. It is, I like to think,… Continue reading I am many things, T-Rex included.
