My Friends in Movies, Running Balloons & Postcard From a German DJ!

It’s been another crazy week folks. I don’t even know where to start. That’s a lie, I’ll start with this:

Pitch Perfect 2 comes out this weekend! Why am I mentioning that? Well, because I know people in the movie! So happy for these folks. Especially my buddy Flula.

We will fight a non violent way.

We will fight you…in a non violent way.

I’ve had the pleasure to make several videos over the years with him (I’m a TV producer when I’m not running). So glad that he’s finally blowing up!!! Much deserved! If you want to see any of the videos I’ve made with him, you can do so HERE.

During his last visit - Tall German DJ/Actor/Comedian dudes really fit in well in Texas.

And bonus, Flula did send me a post card this past week too! And it reminded us runners to stretch our hammies!

Stretch it out boys!

Stretch it out boys! Not sure why you’re wearing prison pants tho.

The other people I know in PP2 is the group Pentatonix. OK, I don’t really know them know them, but I did shoot a video with them last summer.

They asked me to join the group based on some of my youtube karaoke videos.

My friend Emily and I with the band. They asked me to join the group based on some of my sick youtube karaoke videos.

And I got to enjoy their concert…from the side stage!

I liked to imagine they were all cheering for me (they may have been).

I think she’s checking me out.

Other than that, been running like a boss. Gearing up to start my training for the Chicago Marathon in a few weeks.

Solo sweaty smiles.

Kind of looks like a no-legged flamingo. Poor guy – all he needs is one.

I’ve also got a few races coming up this spring, so I’ve been trying to keep with up the track work…even in the rain!

400's with my run bud had me feelin all light headed.

Oh, and yogaing like a boss. Anyone who thinks yoga is easy is someone that has never been to yoga…especially if you run 5 miles right before practice.

Sweat and tears. That was a tough session!

Now it’s time for more of it all, like a boss!

How bout you? Are you running…to see Pitch Perfect 2? Do you yoga? Flamiliar with Flula?

  1. I can’t wait to see PP2. As a chorus nerd and a theatre kid, it’s right up my alley. I loved the first one!

    • Oh yes, that would be right up your alley! Let me know what you think of it. I haven’t had a chance to get to the theater yet.

  2. I know who that Dude is!! So neat! And yes, I will be watching PP2. At some point. I’ve got a lot on tap this weekend PirateBobCat. And as for that poor sad flamingo…YOU COULDN’T RUN AROUND A LITTLE AND GIVE HIM A DAMN LEG? Poor pink paraplegic birdie.

    At first quick glance? I thought you peed your mat. #truestory

    • So you’re a Flula Flan? Very cool! Having known him for some years now, I’m really happy for his success – he honestly is one of the smartest and NICEST people I’ve ever met.
      I cannot wait to go read your bloggy blog to see what the weekend held for you! And I”M SORRY!!! Had I known I was running a paraplegic flamingo, of course I would’ve given him a leg to stand on!
      I may have peed a little too. #sorrynotsorry

      • My weekend was fabulous. My pinky is a ZOMBIE FINGER, but otherwise, all is well. As soon as I finish this cocktail, I’ll blog away. #hiccup

      • LOL, I’ve been waiting for the evidence of your twitter claims! I’ll check out your boozy recap soon!

    Woohoo great running!!
    Funny thing you mention it, I just ran 6 miles yesterday and immediately followed it up with my worst hot yoga session ever. My tank was empty and by the middle of the class I had to resort to child’s pose a few times. I guess I needed more energy. Needless to say I probably won’t be doing yoga right after a run again!

    • Thank you!!! And good for you too! I always seem to run before yoga – makes me wonder how much different it’d be if I came in fresh. I’m like you – usually running on fumes by halfway through the practice. It’ll just make us stronger right? 😉

  4. DUDE you are a rock star!!! Too cool!!!

  5. Soooo cool that you have some famous friends! I’ll have to check out Pitch Perfect 2. I do yoga – I’m actually an RYT (200 hour certified registered yoga teacher!) but I don’t teach anymore!! Keep it up – you are right, it’s so hard…but so good for you!

    • I really enjoyed PP1, so there’s high hopes for PP2, especially with Flula in it! Wow, I didn’t know you were a yoga instructor! So cool! I’ve been going once a week for about 10 years now. Love it!

  6. I was introduced to Pitch Perfect by my 12 year old sister, so I think I’ll wait to see PP2 with her. Seems more appropriate that way, but I don’t care who knows – I LOVED THE MOVIE. #notashamed

    • I hope you and her have a blast at PP2! Ha, I’m with you – loved the first one! Funny story – I never saw it until I heard Flula was cast in PP2, then I was like, why is he in that? So I went and watched the first one – hilarious!!! #noshamesgiven

  7. I got told today I can’t run for a while 😦 But I can bike, swim, and speed/power walk….so that’s what I’m gonna do!
    It’s sad, I’m completely out of touch with movies these days – mama needs a night out! have a great weekend.

    • Bummer! I had to take 4 months off after my first marathon cause of the IT band. I used it to walk, swim, bike, etc. just like you. Came back stronger than before!
      Go check out Pitch Perfect 1 first – it really is very funny!

  8. PBC, there’s a lot going on in this post so I don’t know where to start… but I’ll try. I’ve been doing yoga. Well, one move. Every couple of days. Basically, what I’m getting at is that I own pigeon now. If you need any pointers, let me know.

    • Ah yes, I know all the pigeons well – half, full, reverse. They get along really well with my friends – the IT Bands.

  9. Can I have your life? I want to meet cool people like that!

    • Haha, my life is so random, I never know who I’m going to meet next. Life behind the camera can take you to some interesting places!

  10. You’re like famous! I haven’t yoga’d in ages as our main place closed. I’ve replaced it with Crossfit though. We do some yoga stuff – sort of. I want to see PP2 so bad. Our theatre only plays one movie a week from Friday to Monday so I may miss it though.

    • Totally famous, haha! That sucks your place closed – maybe people can meet in the park to do it? There’s always videos. I know Crossfit is a good workout tho!
      Oh man, every time you tell me something about your town, it blows me away. I guess I take it for granted that there’s probably 80 movie screens within a 5 mile radius of me. I hope you get to see PP2!

  11. Flulawas hysterical in PP2! Did he do his own rapping? Impressive.
