Beach Cruisin Boo-Boos & A Giveaway Winner

July 18, 2011 · 26 comments

From that picture, you’d never know I had a fantastic weekend.

I did, though.

No, that isn’t some strange lethal collision of toesies. That’s two separate accidentes (accidente = accident in Spanish. I hope you figured that out).

My booboo is all thanks to this…

we go by “citrus beach cruiser twins” now.

Bar beach cruisin’.

This…

so much happiness!


My overjoyment of having Dana back in town.

And maybe because of what we’re holding in that picture, too.

Ouchies.

Needless to say, for my 9 mile run yesterday and 1 mile cool down with Chloe, I was repping these babies:

Sushi on mah toesies.

Cute, right? Those were in my Christmas stocking a few  years ago.

This week calls for 14, 9, 9, and 8 mile runs. I’m in the midst of coercing Rob, Jamie, and Mark to agree to trot next to me for at least half of some of those. Pretty please, guys?

And if they say no, at least I’ve got my RoadID I won from Sam‘s giveaway.


So if no one will run with me and I drop from the heat, they know my birthday. And my mantra. Mom, Dad, and Amy, you guys will also be getting a phone call.

Cool, right?

And guess who discovered how awesome smoothies are? I’m just spreading the spinach-banana-chocolate-peanut butter love everywhere.

then she saw the smoothie… now she’s a believah

Served with class in a Dirty Dick’s cup.

After that Sunday morning refuel, a long run, and a few errands, Chloe and I hung out in the backyard while she cooled off in her new “pool.”

Now, who’s recruiting Chloe to their synchronized swim team?

AND… The winner of the Artisana coconut butter and cacao bliss packets is:


Congratulations, Meri! Hit me your address in an e-mai to alyssa@lifeofblyss.com, pretty lady.

That blood picture made me barf. All over my computer.

Also, HOW DO YOU RUN FOR SO LONG? What the heck… I seriously do not understand how people just RUN for miles at a time.

BUT SERIOUSLY.

I’m really, really good at entertaining myself. it’s the gift of an (almost) only child.

okay, not an only child, but a kid who is 13/15 years younger than her siblings.

come to vb and I’ll jabber your face off and make you run for long periods of time with me. yeah?

I don’t know how you run that many miles in this heat! I tried to do 3 the other day and stopped after 2 because I felt light-headed and had a mirage of an ice cream truck driving by but it totally didnt. Or maybe it did and I was just running too slow to catch up…
