Running With Kanye, Blogger Shout-Outs & Free Beer!!!

Not sure how it is where you are, but the weather has been gorgeous this week round here. I took full advantage by hittin the pavement. With the social run always being a highlight.

Again, I was assured that there was no photoshopping in this pic.

Oh hey, look…Kanye joined us. Again, I was assured that there was no photoshopping in this pic. (click to enlarge to see the non-photoshopping)

I got in 4 fun miles with the gang.

Don't mind us, just running through.

Don’t mind us, just running through.

And then after the run, we were treated to free beers from a local liquor rep! Score!

Free is good.

Free is good.

This week also saw another track workout. The weather was in the freaky forties early in the morn. Felt good, but I didn’t think I’d have to bust out cold weather gear for like another 8 more months.

Yes, I wore pants. Yes, I'm a baby when it comes to cold.

Yes, I wore pants for the 400’s. Yes, I’m a baby when it comes to cold.

I know the Texas summer is looming, but it’s nice to have this little break in temp. I’ll take it!

That wrapped up a 145 mile month of April. Hopefully I can continue this and have a really great race at the Chicago Marathon. Speaking of which, the lottery winners were announced this week – Congrats to all who got in and to all those who are running for charity, like my pal Helly On The Run – Can’t wait to see you there!

BoA_ChiMar_v_rgbThere ya go, short and sweet. But I can’t go without another blogger shout out. Thanks so much to This Mama Runs for Cupcakes! You helped me reach my Chicago Marathon Charity fundraising goal!!!!!! I’ll get to work on your personalized picture!

And if anyone else wants to donate, you can still do so HERE.

How bout you? Who all got into Chicago???? Good weather weather lately? Did you see any non-photoshopping?

  1. Looks like a blast!!! Glad to your goals were met! I agree this weather is freaky!!!!

    • Was fun indeed! And yes, the weather is nuts. I was thinking about it this morning on my run when it was warm and raining – just a week earlier it was cold and raining. Ha!

  2. Hahahaha Kanye. I cannot wait to read about Chicago!! What an awesome race (and cause)! The weather is unusually hot over here in CA. I don’t like it at all. 93F yesterday!

    • Hiya Amy! I can not wait for Chicago! You need to move to a more mild part of Cali. I’ve never been to a city there where it got nearly that hot. San Fran was freezing!

  3. what photoshopping? 😀 I was wondering about those pants!! hahaha

  4. W0000t Chicago!!

  5. Free beer – awesome sauce! And nice mileage totals! We hit 80 for the first time this week – it’s our eight month in a row with higher than normal temperatures #globalwarmingisrealyo

    • It was awesome sauce!
      Haha, at first I thought you meant you hit 80 miles in a week – took me a minute to realize you meant the temperature! And I hear ya – #climatechangeain’tnojokeyo

  6. I agree, 40’s is definitely sweatpants weather! Great mileage!

  7. Impressive mileage this month! When do you officially start Chicago training?
    Lol- 40s is sweatpants weather!

    • You know, I’m not sure exactly when I start. Still trying to figure out which training plan I’m going to follow. It’s coming up soon though.
      And thanks – I was cold!!!

  8. That’s so exciting you’re running the Chicago Marathon! I’m very behind in reading blogs, obviously.

    • Thank you, I am pumped for Chi! Don’t worry about it, I’m very behind on blogs too. I don’t want to be, but it’s hard to keep up all the time!

  9. Loving this weather!!!! It’s the BEST! Looks like you had a great week!!

  10. Sue @ This Mama Runs For Cupcakes

    Whoo hoo! Glad I could help!

  11. Finally made my donation to your cause (even though you reached your goal already) every dollar helps the cause. See you in Chicago!

    • You, as they say, are the man! Yes, every bit helps and not only that, but they’re going to reimburse my entry free, so I’m trying to raise a bit more than the goal so that I can try to cover that cost for them. Let’s find a way to meet up for sure!!

  12. Kindeo

    Looks like you had a great run! Good luck in Chicago!

    • Every run is great – in hindsight at least. 😉 Thanks so much, I’m really looking forward to Chicago!

  13. Those photos are awesome! Totally normal to see green monsters and Kanye isn’t it? Congrats on reaching your fundraising goal!!

    • Hahaha, thank you!! You never know what you’re going to see in those pictures! And thanks again for donating – I already know what I want to do for your IG pic!

  14. Hey!!!!!! We’re going to Chicago!!!!! 😀
