The Mankini Run, Greek Tacos & Dinorappers!

Quick update on the Chicago Marathon training. The beats by dre goes on. And things may be getting weird…

Ladies love the mankini.

What had happened was we got a Christmas in in July miracle! A “cool front” came through Texas over the weekend. So instead of being triple digits, we were just in the upper 90’s!!! It made the 16 mile group run somewhat pleasant!

Here we are.

Thankfully no mankinis were worn on the run.

It started at 5:30 am at a WRRC member’s house (thanks John!) for the final Run My Hood run. I had never run in this area before and the route took us on a long hike and bike trail that I really enjoyed. But 16 miles later it was over, and the non-running fun began. Pool Party, hey hey!

Party like it’s 8:30 am (cause it is)!

Funny how your brain works after waking up at 4 am to run for over two hours. You sometimes do silly things. Meh, oh well. Good times.

And if you know me, you know my love of tacos post-run. Well this week was no different. But this time it was Greek tacos!

Gyro, taco, same difference.

As for the rest of the week, the runs have been going very well. I’m very pleased. And this weeks TNSR didn’t even have any dinosaur attacks! But one did join us for the run. We were all very pleased.

And so it goes. And there you go. A quick update for your face’s eyes to look at.

How bout you? Get a break in the weather at all? Do you like Greek tacos? Be honest, is that mankini a good cut/color for me?

More updates to come in a day or so!!!

Running With Dinosaurs, I’m Punny & My Shorts Are Soaked With Something!

Things are really picking up in the Chicago Marathon training world. And it was made even more challenging because during one run, some dinosaurs had escaped from the zoo!

The pterodactyls were using the restroom, but I couldn't hear because the pee is silent.

The pterodactyls were using the restroom when they snuck up, but I couldn’t hear them because the pee is silent. Is that joke funny, or am I getting carried away here?

This was at the always fun Thursday Night Social Run. It was just unfortunate that the dinos were everywurrrr!

After this run I was definitely dino-sore.

Though it got a little hairy scaley, in the end we all made up.

The tyrannosaurus is cool, but I prefer his smarter cousin the thesaurus.

Other than that, I’ve been sticking to the training plan. Mileage is ramping up. The Texas summer is hot. But I’m hanging in there. Here’s last week’s weekday runs…
