on running, pubs and brownies

Today I started week five.  Loved the eight minute runs (especially the five minute break).  I’m starting to feel like a runner again.  I still have no Internet at home but have finally located my headphones…listened to Spring Awakening soundtrack.  On my run this morning, I noticed this sign above the door to a pub that I ran by.

Only in England – where I’m sure they invented boarding school.

On a more pleasing note, I made this beautiful raspberry cheesecake brownie last night.  Picture courtesy of Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook.  They have a shop here in London where they sell nice cupcakes (at outrageous prices). Cupcakes…definitely not invented in England.


gomer motivation

I’ve been listening to the podcast “Two Gomers Run a Half-Marathon. A podcast about two regular guys doing something they’ve never done before”

Very popular. Very funny guys. Highly recommended. Check out their website, especially their theme song. “We are two gomers….” Two Gomers Half-Marathon Theme Song. They did it, by the way.  The half-marathon. And now they’ve moved on to Season 2: “Two Gomers Run a Marathon” http://www.twogomers.com/

Week 4 Day 1 of C25K was great today. It’s all about form for me right now. Which forces me to go slow.

I cracked myself up today when “Run Joey Run” (the Glee version, yes) came on while I was running. I felt both like a dork and…a dork. That’s all I got.

Love their low-tech logo.

Hang on little tomato

“……Just hang on, hang on to the vine
Stay on, soon you’ll be divine
If you start to cry, look up to the sky
Something’s coming up ahead
To turn your tears to dew instead

And so I hold on to his advice
When change is hard and not so nice
You listen to your heart the whole night through
Your sunny someday will come one day soon to you….”

Just a little Pink Martini tune that I was listening to this morning on my 6:00 am run.  It was cold and windy and I needed a little whimsy.  Love this album cover.  Does anyone even say album anymore?  I do. Give it a listen while you are waiting for your sunny someday!  Cheers.
