A hodgepodge of updates for today... first, I did get in a quick run over the weekend - nothing too exciting:
Avg pace: 10:29min/mi
Avg hr: 169bpm
I've also seen a fun tag floating around and I wanted to play along. Here are my five latest obsessions / addictions:
1. Lint shaver
This came in real handy yesterday for a particularly fuzzy coat of mine - what a great invention!
2. MAC Viva Glam V lipstick
I've almost finished the entire tube - that never happens!
3. Anti-glare screen for my iPhone
Now you don't see my messy fingerprints anymore!
4. Rimshot & Crickets iPhone application
This thing continues to crack me up to the point of tears! It's a free app that gives you a big red button for four different sound effects - a rimshot (to punctuate the end of a joke), crickets (if someone is telling a really long and boring story), trombone (waa-waa-waaaaaaaa sound ideal for pity parties), and golf claps. I've used it during a staff meeting (only once!) and a dinner party and it is hysterical!
5. Rock Band drums
Because I rock.
Do any of your non-running/blogging (also known as non-virtual, haha) friends read your blog? Most of my friends know I have blogs, but hardly any of them read them unless I specifically email them a link for a particularly interesting post, like a marathon race report or something. Not all of them run so I can understand that but they don't even read my pop culture one, either. But then again, most of my friends aren't really "blog readers"... they don't even know what Google Reader is. For example, I know one of my good friends thought I literally visited over a hundred different websites a day. Please!
I do have two good "non-virtual" friends that faithfully read both of my blogs. These very dear friends of mine both recently had their first babies this week - welcome baby Alex and Sahana to the world!!!
On a final note, I am thinking about using one of those online logs to track my runs and bike rides. I have most of the data in my Garmin but it might be cool to have a tracker on my blog as well. Do any of you have any recommendations? I looked at a couple... I am wondering if there was one that also allowed you to enter shoe data so that you could monitor how many miles you had on a specific pair. Let me know if you have any scoop!
