Three Things Thursday

1.  All I talk about is the 24.  Literally.  I can't stop talking about it.  I, like the rest of you, are waiting for all the details.  So if it's not posted soon I'm singing like a canary...

2.  I'm having a little ITB issue.  I think watching someone run for 24 hours was just too much.  It's like a sympathy injury.  Like when the husband gains weight while his wife is pregnant....

3.  It's finally Spring here!  Went for a beautiful outside morning run at 6 am.  Loved it.


  1. Yay on the run.

    I seriously think it had to be =-ly hard to watch boring tm runner for 24 hours. No joke. You deserve the buckle.

    Can you please write my post. "I'm beggin'". Love that song btw.

    You. So. Freaking. Rock.
    Sing away my little canary.

  2. So glad spring is here and I can genuinely enjoy my outdoor runs!

  3. YAY for spring!!!

    How generous you are to take injury for Em, what a big heart you have!!! :) Hope it's better soon!

  4. What 24? :-)

    I wonder if EMZ is going to devote an entire post to me for being kinda the backbone of the whole operation. You know, with my continual tweets that were instrumental in getting her through it.

    Spring! Awesome. I hope you have another trip to So Cal on the calendar. Long Beach in Oct?

  5. No better time to be a runner than Springtime. Bring the warm.

    So, is that a little ITB problem, or a problem with a little ITB? Either way, I hope it resolves itself. No injuries allowed during Spring - unwritten law.

  6. I can imaginge watching someone run for 24 hours is crazy hard and I have no doubt it put some stress on that ITB! Get better quick...and sing us the song! :)

  7. Sing like a canary. The 24 was witnessed from multiple perspectives - let's read yours!

  8. Dr. K's knee patch didn't work miracles?? Sorry about that. But would you believe my knee is hurting??? This sympathy stuff is going way too far. You actually ran, what is my excuse?

  9. My ITB is throbbing lately too...maybe that's why. : )

  10. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO that dumb ITB stuff is the bane of my running existence.


    Ok,maybe not all that dramatic. But please please take care of yourself and dont push it too far (says the girl who ran 26.2 on a bum ITB and then couldnt run for 8weeks)not worth it

    So...RnR Vegas?Please?

  11. Can you believe. Comments. Lost. So. Freaking. Sad.

  12. I can't tell you how many times I've heard ITB in the last couple of weeks. I'm starting to think it's a global pandemic like Swine Flu. Roller, tennis ball and (my new trick) sit on a small dumbell and let it dig into your glutes.

  13. I've had my own ITB issues, but only on one side. You can look up a multitude of ITB stretches and foam rolling. My only suggestion is to make them periodic. Don't just do them before and after running - do them three times a day.

    After a week of that, my pain went away and I just keep with the stretches once a day now.

    Best of luck!

  14. four things Friday:

    you better be eating sumthin' your not cookin'

    you better be kickin' your feet up after.

    you better be adding frou frou to your playlist

    you better know how FREAKING bad I wish I was at that FL. yes, I looked into flights last night [freaking mad it's not freaking going to work]

    but you've got this.
    ITB will cooperate. says me.

  15. How about 12 in 12!! CONGRATULATIONS DAWN!! Such an amazing feat/accomplishment/ awe!

    Basically, you and EMZ need to attack Navy Seal training next!
