Before and After

So- this isn't a Biggest Loser style blog post where I show you pictures of myself before and after losing weight. Oh no no. This post is about what happens BEFORE you run 13.1 miles and the AFTER you run 13.1 miles.

Before- apply sunscreen
After- have sunscreen and sweat burning your eyeballs

Before- put a blister shield on big toe
After- develop blister next to the blister shield

Before- trot effortlessly to the starting line
After- limp painfully to the car

Before- eat a blueberry breakfast bar
After- eat everything in sight because you're starving

Before- stand smiling in a new running outfit (see picture)
After- sit grimacing in an ice bath (see picture)

So- running 13.1 miles is no picnic but I wouldn't have it any other way!

Locked In...To What Exactly?

I Think My Identity Was Stolen By A Mariner's Fan

About five minutes ago, I signed into my hotmail (aka my spam depository) and saw an email with this subject line:

"The Stars Are Aligned: The Red Sox, GIants, and Angels are Coming to Safeco Field" and it was from Mariners.com.

So, I've definitely gotten weird email before but this was a NEWSLETTER. So, I said to hubby, "I don't even know a single guy on the Mariner's team." To which he said, "You know Ken Griffey Jr." And I said, "Oh yeah, and I know that other guy." He said, "That other guy? You mean Ichiro? The guy who's just about the best player in baseball? That guy?"

SO- I'm just saying that the Seattle Mariners should be embarrassed that I, of all people, am on a list of supposed "Mariners fans". They should be paying people to keep clueless people like me OFF of their list.

On a final note- if I stole someone's identity, I'm not sure that the first thing I'd do would be to sign up for an MLB newsletter. But that's just me...
