Phillies 5K Bib? Audiobook? …Bueller?

March 30, 2012 · 33 comments

When I walked my middle and high school hallways alone, everyone would ask me the same question.

“Where’s Maggie?”

circa 2006

There she is! My other half. Growing up, we were inseparable. The last time I saw her was when she visited Virginia Beach for my 24th birthday weekend.

We haven’t changed too much, have we? If anything, I think we look more and more alike the more we age.

Maybe we’ll just evolve into the same person, Mag.

Anyway, it’s to Maggie’s house I go after work today. I have a feeling Maggie’s only inviting me because she knows I’ll bring a cooler of Chobani to share.

Back to my homeland, where you may find…

the best team in the MLB

the best carb in the world

and lots and lots of… sisterly brotherly love.

Philafreakin’delphia, here I come!

P.S. If anyone has an extra bib they can’t use for the Phillies 5k on Saturday, holla at’cha girl. We REALLY want to run it, but registration is closed. That’s what I get for deciding to make a last-minute trip.

P.P.S. If anyone has an awesome audiobook they wouldn’t mind sending me via Dropbox.com, I’d also love the roadtrip entertainment.

P.P.P.S. I promised a Chobani winner today via Random.org!

Congratulations, Brooke! E-mail me your mailing address so I can pass it on to Chobani. And then we’ll have a virtual yogurt party.

Aww. I love old friends. My high school friends and I always tell each other that we look BETTER now than we did then…and I would have to say the same about you guys (not that you didn’t look awesome then…but you know what I’m saying).
You two wild and crazy gals have fun!

you should download the following podcasts for your road trip:

Want a smile on your face the entire drive? Try these:
1. Doug Loves Movies [the live events, not the rental car/hotel room 20-30 minute ones]
2. Nerdist – especially the episodes with Neil Patrick Harris, and Episode 154 [stand up cluster 2] and Episode 51 [comedians you should know] TRUST ME on this. DO IT!

To feed the girly side of you try these:
Joy the Baker – you will LOVE it.

Have fun!! It’s nice to still have close friends from that long ago. I had my 10 year high school reunion not too long ago, and it was great being able to catch up with so many old friends.

Of course, facebook kind of takes some of the fun out of all that … it’s not like I was surprised to see what anyone looked like. ;)

I love your article. A lot of friends will just come and go but REAL friends will be with you through thick and thin. This is an amazing article you got. It reminded me with my high school friends which unfortunately have come in my life and gone. I am really happy that you have able to find a friend like her. It was hard to find a friend that will stay with you all the time. Good bless!

ahhh, best girlfriends are the BEST. My best friend and I have known each other since kindergarden (almost 25 years now). She’s like a sister, only we never had to live together so we didn’t have to deal with the drama of being sisters! We take a trip together every year since we live four hours apart. We usually just take a long weekend trip to somewhere in the US.

Listening to the flyers game online now :) my mood April-October greatly depends upon the success of the phillies and soft pretzels are my love language. Have a great visit!!

You didn’t miss too much with the phillies 5K…it was an average race. It bummed me out a bit because I definitely expected more…especially for the hefty price tag. I wrote a recap on my blog if you want to check it out!

Hell YES best freakin’ team in the MLB. I’m secretly married to Chase Utley in case you didn’t know. Didn’t know you were from the Illadelph. REP IT HARD GIRL. Whereabouts? I grew up in West Chester outside of Philly and am running the streets of Brooklyn now, though during baseball season you can most definitely find me posted at any and all Phillies bars in NYC.
