Ah...Huey Lewis and pee drenched gloves. Reminds me of my childhood...

wait, what?

survivingmyself said...

you need to up the Huey songs. He's the key to happiness.

Seriously.

Maxie said...

Do you seriously eat snickers while you run? hilarious. and i love the graph.

Kayleigh said...

ok wait, seriously? you ran that much all in one day? (bows down) i think i would be amazed if i ran 5 at a time. that graph rocks my socks by the way. did pigpen do a few laps with you?

J-Money said...

Birdwatching: You too?

Surviving: I. Love. Huey. He was my first crush, which wasn't weird at all since I was, like, 8 and he was a 37 year old father of 2. Today's selections were from the "Sports" album. Next week, maybe "Fore!"

Maxie: I do. When you run that long, you've got to eat something. A couple of weeks ago I forgot my energy gel but ducked into a bait shop (what? It's the south) and bought a Snickers. I ran better after that, so I stuck with 'em. Also, I love nougat.

Kayleigh: Yep, I'm training for the Boston Marathon which means lots of miles and, most likely, my knees grinding themselves into a fine powder. Pigpen hasn't learned how to run without putting the leash in his mouth, so he sat this one out...

ok, so for the past 2 hours i've been not reading the remaining 100-and-change pages of a book that i have to write a paper on by thursday at 9am because i've been reading your blog.
it's okay, i wasn't going to pull much higher than a B- in the class, anyway.

J-Money said...

jerseysjov: No worries... I didn't read much in college either and look at me now. Um. I mean, stay in school!

You have plenty of days before Thursday. Also, "B" stands for "Bitchin'!"

For leverage? Yikes, what the hell were you trying to squeeze out there, girl?

Mike said...

The rate of ascension in the x axis is inrinsically related to the rate of ascension in the y. In otherwords: Kill me, god of fire, for my loins doth burn like shit when e're I run.

the boy who likes to... said...

Which glove was left, the peed one or the not peed one?

J-Money said...

Brunette: OK, maybe 'leverage' was the wrong word. You know how, when you pee in the woods, you have to throw your arms around a tree like it's your Homecoming Dance partner and you're swaying to a particularly moving Bryan Adams song? And then you extend your arms and try to get your pelvis as far away from your legs/shoes as possible? That's what I was doing. And yes, boys, I hate you for not having to spend 5 minutes scraping bark off your sleeves after a pit stop.

Mike: Exactly. Although if the God of Fire is busy, I'd settle for the God of Hot Water or even the God of Yarn.

The Boy: Do you really want me to ruin the surprise?

Laura said...

Wow, I'm really impressed with that run! And the description was much funnier than anything I've come up with about my runs... need to work on that.

Did you already qualify for Boston? I'm planning on taking the day off to watch, so maybe I'll see you and be able to cheer you on :)

J-Money said...

Laura: I did qualify for Boston, with about 4 seconds to spare. I'll be wearing a shirt that says "Hi, I'm J-Money" so please hold up a sign that says "HELLO I AM LAURA FROM ABSOLUT(LY) FIT".

Laura said...

Wow, congrats on qualifying! This year I made it my New Year's resolution to run a half (which I had never done before), but I've already done that twice now. So my new goal is to do all five in the New York Road Runner's five borough series, and also to do a marathon at some point. Who knows, though, if I get ambitious (and a LOT faster), maybe I could do Boston next year.

I'll get in touch via comments at some point closer to the race to figure out your pace and how to recognize you. And to let you know what my sign will say :)

pinkjellybaby said...

wow! I can't run 1 mile, let alone 18!! kudos to you!

Reluctant Runner said...

Waaaiiitt a minute ... I've been choking down those disgusting energy blocks/gels/beans when I could have been eating Snickers bars? Maybe that's why I haven't qualified for Boston ... that and the slow running.

Hollywood Sucker said...

ha! Love the blog. Back when I used to run, I would have been able to relate to you, but now I'm lazy.

Vanilla said...

Well you might be faster than me, but I take solace in the fact that I have an easier time peeing behind a tree than you do. I mean, I still manage to pee on my gloves and shoes and stuff, but it's still easier for me.

J-Money said...

Laura: And congrats on your two half marathons!

PJB: You can totally run a mile. But I'll warn you... one can escalate to 18 before you know it.

Reluctant: Those Shot Block things are the lovechild of Jello and garbage. If you can down those, you deserve a medal.

Hollywood: I have plenty of lazy in me. Case in point, my constant viewing of Dr. Phil.

Vanilla: Oh yeah, just rub it in...

dmbmeg said...

I remember this pain. I'm signing up for this year for NYC--which will be my 3rd year of getting denied. Even if I do get in through the lottery (unlikely), I'll defer til 2009 so I can focus on my tri.

OMG YOU SHOULD RUN NYC IN 2009 WITH ME!

DOOOOOO IT! FUNNNNNNNN!

(ok, sorry. One marathon at a time)

J-Money said...

YES! THIS WILL HAPPEN! I'm so excited, I may have to use profanity!

Just Jamie said...

You are a goddess.

18 miles in 1 day!! I am also bowing down! I just did a half marathon & here I am 3 days later & still limping around.

Cheers to you & the snickers!
