Whine and Wine Wednesday

Marathon Training Week 9 - Day 3

Today called for 3 miles at race pace.

Looks like my shirt and short reflectors are working properly!

Randee was a ray of sunshine with her LUNA headband.
We found it really hot...even though the temperature was right around 80.  There was a Code Orange Alert.  Maybe this was part of the problem?
Ozone Code Orange Alert Days are called when ozone pollution is predicted to reach unhealthy levels for sensitive groups.  When this happens, active children and adults, and people with lung disease, such as asthma should limit prolonged outdoor exertion.
We finished and my hammy behaved.

Sorry about the big butt and thigh in your face.  Chiropractor said it was okay to run as long as there was no pain.  Foam roll, Epson Salt Bath, Ice...Repeat.
Now let's get to whining....


Oh mercy, I could go on forever in this category today!  But I wont.  Maybe.
This time of year I can always whine about the weather.
It actually looks like we might be under 100 for a few days.  WooHoo!  It has been hot, and it will continue to be hot until October.  Just a fact of life in Texas!

I could whine about my laundry coming out of the washer like this.
How in the heck does this happen?  This is my bra, the draw string from a pair of my shorts, and the arm of one of Doug's t-shirts.  It took me 15 minutes to untangle this mess.

I'm still whining about not finding this red skirt.  Dang Runner's World!
 And just because I needed a few giggles today......
Did you ever have a friend like this?  Or are you the moocher?

Because we all know that holding everything inside until you explode one day is the best way to deal with reality.
Unfriend - the easy way to deal with confrontation.
Oh yes, and to all of those associated with me in any way...

I'm joking...kinda.
Alright....enough of that.


Not sure that I will be consuming any wine tonight.  But I am hosting a GNO on Friday....and there will be wine!

Riesling is chilled and ready for my ladies.
Now totally off topic...

My daughter is a duct tape addict.  This is her duct tape wallet she made.
Last night she had all the neighborhood boys outside teaching them to make duct tape checker boards.  I wanted to get a picture so bad, but didn't want to embarrass her.

Happy Whine and Wine Wednesday!

What's your whine and wine for the week?


  1. Well, I was going to bitch about the heat but I'm not worthy after reading about the temps u run in. Poor girl.

  2. It must be the dew point again! It was only 80 here in Austin too...but it was humid and felt nasty out :( And what's up with the ozone?? Scary!

  3. Cute wallet! I'll take two!

    I'm not the moocher. Or the giver. I'm the dutcher. (Not sure what that means.) But I'm big on paying my own way and not being a burden.

  4. That I didn't get paid enough! Dang it!

  5. Ugh same thing happened with my laundry today

  6. Nice post. Those comic type one liners are hilarious =) I love the blog! Glad I found it.
