Spin songs, race photos and hot chocolate overdose.

Workout: Taught 45 minute spin class and 45 minutes on the elliptical.  Now that I can ellipticize I am already slacking on the lifting department.....good thing the sis and I have a gym date tomorrow and she can whip me into shape.  Get excited for round 2 of ROUND ONE HERE.

Even though I am extremely excited for summer......there are a few things that I will miss about winter.

1.  I drink hot chocolate all year long, in the winter people look at me like I am a normal person.  However, in the summer they (family, co-workers, strangers, Billy) stare when I am wearing short sleeves, in 90 degree weather sipping the HC thinking I must be high or something.

2.  Boots.  I have runners feet.  Like really bad runners feet.  Boots do a great job of covering the lack of a toenail, the calluses, the size 10 etc.  If we meet in real life during the summer please only look at me from the ankles up, otherwise your opinion of me may drastically change.

3.  Treadmill running.  I LOVE running outside but I do love my stopping at lights, dealing with extreme weather, I get to watch reality shows as I go and most importantly.....bathroom emergencies are easier to handle.

I forgot to post my spin list yesterday- I don't know what got into me, maybe it was because I was all worked up about the 2.5 serving size bag of Swedish Fish.  I guess I did share two fishies with Billy so maybe I only ate 2 servings?!?!

1.  Blah Blah by Kei$ha

2. Rock That Body by Black Eyed Peas

3. Remember the Name by Fort Minor

4. What the Heck by Avril Lavign

5. DJ Got Us Falling in Love by Usher

6. Forget You by Cee Lo Green

7. Uprising by Muse

8. Perfect by Pink

9. Papercut by Linkin Park

10. Who Dat Girl by Akon

11. Get Low by Petey Pablo (oldey but a classic)

1.  What are you going to miss most about Winter?

2.  Do you have cute feet or runners feet?  Do you get pedicures?

-Back in the single days I would all the time but I think Billy would agree it is time to splurge on a little lovin' for my feet.

3.  Anyone have fun VACATION plans coming up this spring/summer?

-BOSTON is getting closer and closer:)  Next month we are going to St. George with my family and we will be in Cali for most of the Summer (number one reason to be a teacher:)

Growing up in Wyoming and now living in San Diego, I totally miss when my nose hairs would freeze and the way a cold day smelled. I think about that all the time! And I totally have the worst runners feet ever!! All my friends always want to go for pedicures but I'm too embarrassed to pay someone to touch my feet. Tough life being a runner :)

It's not weird to drink hot chocolate all year long. I mean, think about it--people (me) drink hot coffee all year long, too. It's the same thing.

In Florida we don't get winter. But I always miss winter because I don't have it! =(

I have dancers feet, but I think they are cute. I keep them pedicured. Is that a word?

I am going to Minneapolis over Memorial day weekend (my birthday) to visit with the PriorFatGirl family! ( or #PriorFatPack on twitter) And run a 5k. That same group of girls are coming to Florida next year to run the Disney Princess Half. You should come too! Blogger fun in Florida! =)

I am not sure I'll miss anything about winter. Then again, ask me in June when I'm 8 months pregnant. Ha! Seriously, though, I really don't like winter - the cold, the snow, scraping ice, running tights, frozen eyelashes. I do like soup and I eat it all the time in winter - maybe I'll miss that.

I wish we were doing something fun this summer. I mean, besides, the baby. We are visiting my grandma in a week in Cincinnati so that will be cool.

I will miss EVERYTHING about winter!! I love it!!!! Although my winter in Nor-Cal is easy compared to most ;) I only use the treadmill in the summer when it gets so hot :(

I used to have cute feet as a competative swimmer (the water keeps them all soft and lovely) but since I started running they've gotten ugly and training for the last marathon I lost 2 toenails. But I do keep them painted ALWAYS bare toenails are just gross I think

On a day like today, I am doing a little (inner) dance of joy as winter makes it's exit (though I will miss wearing my down puffy coat--I love that thing!) I am running the Sawtooth Relay in June, and then the Spokane to Sandpoint in August--those are my vacations!

Oh I will miss EVERYTHING about the winter. the California winter weather is perfect weather to me. I HATE the summers here. this is the time of year that I use the treadmill the most :(
My feet are terrible. I wear closed toe shoes most of the time. No Pedicure for me.

Vacation: I am going HOME in May! after almost 3 yrs without going back. that is how long it has been since I have seen my brother and his family! I will get to have a race while I am there! and my hmm hmm 25 yrs (yikes) HS reunion!

No, no, I have runners feet. I'm constantly apologizing for them for some reason.

I like my treadmill too! I think I need to set up a Tv like you have. I just stare at a wall!

Thanks for the playlist! Every once in awhile I grab a new tune from your selection.

I'm with you on the shoe issue! People actually comment on the state of my feet sometimes. Flip-flops are not a good look for me.

What may be worse them runners feet.....dancers feet!!! I definitely try to keep my size 10 dancer feet under wraps!! They may scare people! I can't miss winter much because I LOVE spring and summer!!!

I have gross running feet too, so I am definately going to miss the boots that hide my gross feet.
I also drink hot chocolate year round! It is just too yummy to save it for the winter.
We are going to Moab in a month, and I can't wait to feel some summer heat and to be outside!!!

Oh boy do I have nasty feet! It used to bother me, now I accept it as a part of running :) Ah well, at least we're not wasting money on pedicures, right?
I think it's totally acceptable to drink hot chocolate all year long!

I have really bad runners feet, too. I'm going to miss the tm, too. I always catch up on my Judy Judy there. My new plan is to run o the gym, weights and abs there and run home. Can't wait, trial run next weekend!

A friend and I were just talking about this today! Yes. I have ugly runner's feet. But I don't mind. I hate shoes. So I'm always barefoot or wearing sandals either way.

I think I will miss throwing on sweat pants sweatshirts when it's cold outside!!

I also have bad runners toes!! My mom always wants me to get pedicures, but I hate getting them!! They always massage my calves to hard!! hah

I live in Australia so the weather is just starting to cool down here. I'm not impressed..I LOVE summer, not so keen on winter...I'm a wuss - it doesn't even get very cold here.

I think most feet are ugly..Mine aren't too bad but I don't bother with pedicures often. I spend my beauty $ on make up and spray tans :)

Thank you so much for the sweet comment on my blog!!

I will miss wearing a hoodie and looking normal while I do it. I wear one at night during the summer, and I get funny looks. I just love my comfy clothes. Also, since I started running my feet can't handle flip flops anymore! So my favorite thing about the summer is GONE now!

I used to get pedicures in like high school and shortly after but then I got lazy and stopped spending my money on things I don't need. But now that my feet are all callused up, I'm afraid of them scraping the calluses off! I worked hard to build those up and I don't need to go back to having weakling skin!

I think I'm going to miss the way the snow looks covering everything. So beautiful! I'm also going to miss wearing scarves. I've been really into them this year! By the way, I have the same cup (but in brown!)

At March 31, 2011 at 6:04 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

I'm going to miss being cool when the temperatures are in the 80's and massively humid.

My feet are gross, but I only get pedicures once in a while when it is warm. No point in getting them in the winter!

No fun vacation for me. Such is the life of a grad student! At least I get to make a weekend trip to DC for a wedding.

I won't miss anything about winter! Summer is the best time in Seattle. :) My feet are okay- they were bad when I ran a few half marathons last year but are better now (especially since I just got a pedicure). I am going to Maui for my honeymoon this summer and I cannot wait!!

I won't judge you for your feet if you won't judge me for my second toe being longer than my big toe. It's a genetic thing - I'm not proud of it. However, people tell me it's a sign of smartness. I believe them.

I thought about you today as I rode my bike outside.

Because I was my own cheerleader. I felt like a rockstar and coincidentally, rode like one. Averaged my FASTEST mph EVER and made my speed goal for 2011.

Thanks so much for encouraging us all the time!!

I've never lived in a climate without winter, but I don't think I'd miss much (maybe nothing at all!). I really despise winter, and we just had another dumping of snow today in south-central Alaska!!

Running totally chews up my feet--callouses, blisters, black toe nails, etc.! I apologize constantly when I'm getting a pedicure! I feel so bad, but I can't do as good of a job as they can!

At March 31, 2011 at 6:41 PM , Blogger ms. caboo said...

I know I don't run as much as every one else, so my feet are good! Bud loves my feet. The most I get is a callus on the sides of my big toes, and that's it. When I did start running, I did go from a size 7 shoe to an 8. Was not happy with that!

The only thing I will miss about winter is the fact that I don't have to mow my yard in December.

I drink hot chocolate/cappuccinos alllll year long. Last summer I went to pretty much every single baseball game for my... err, "friends" league. I always showed up with some type of coffee beverage and every single parent said something to me ATLEAST once. lol

Uhm, at one point I only had six toenails. Then I found out I was wearing the wrong sized shoes for about 4 years. Turns out I'm not an 8, I'm actually a 9 or 9.5. Yikes. So yeahhh, my feet are deformed. I feel bad for the people who give me pedicures.

No plans for vacation yet :( Probably just some day trips because I'm a poor college student. Wahhh!

PS-> I wanna do the Disney Princess marathon SO bad. Let's split the price and high-tail our butts down to Disney!

At March 31, 2011 at 7:02 PM , Blogger Shannon said...

I think the only thing I'll miss about winter is being able to sleep in and not worrying about it get too hot to run. I will also miss the hoodies that I can hide myself in...

My feet aren't too bad, but my mileage is still pretty low =( despite my efforts to increase mileage...

Not exciting plans for me...

I love these race photos! Great pics and smiles. Running=endorphins=good peeps.

Umm, I noticed you didn't answer Q #1. Me too! ha ha!

2. Runners feet. I completely get it now! I kind of wish all my lil toenails would fall off!

3. I can't wait to go home to Nebraska--it's no Cali, but it family and friends and warmth!! Maybe I need to sched a trip to socal to visit you!!

That spin play list is ROCKIN!

I don't think there is much I will miss about winter...except that when it is cold out and bad weather, I really love staying in my house for a few days and doing absolutely nothing. And in the summer if I did that I would just be wasting a precious summer day. So I guess winter provides an excuse to be a little more lazy? hehe

At March 31, 2011 at 7:35 PM , Blogger solarpowered said...

2. My feet don't look terrible -- I have all my toenails right now -- but I don't get pedicures. I don't want someone to scrub all the calloused, tough skin off!

3. I'm heading to the Florida Keys next weekend for the 7 Mile Bridge race and then back again the following week for my spring break.

ps. that pic of you hugging your treadmill cracks me up every time. :)

I wear my uggs all the time and keep shoes at work to change into. I'll be sad when I have to put them away, but really happy because that'll mean it's warm out!!

I used to hate the treadmill but I've started to like it for the same reasons you do!

My hubs and I have a few vacations lined up, including a trip to Seattle where I'm going to run a half marathon! So excited!

I have that book you're reading in the picture, Run Less, Run Faster- some good stuff! I have horrible feet that I tip ladies extra to deal with ;) I just spent part of Spring Break in NYC and for summer I'm staying local in Socal with a quick trip to Yosemite to hike Half Dome and to San Fran for a 1/2 marathon.

The things I'm going to miss most about Winter are my boots, puffer vests, and scarves.

I have ugly feet :[ I'm extremely flat footed and have runner's toes. Sometimes I get pedicures, but I'm extremely ticklish so they aren't much fun for me until the massage, ahhh...

Vacations are Boston, Big Sur, and Cancun!! So excited :]

PS- I'm going to be working with your coach Alex too!! Thanks again!

My feet have changed since I started running - they used to be really cute! I think I'll treat myself to a pedicure soon...maybe even tomorrow!

I have one super ugly foot from tendinitis that I've had for about five years now, I often refer to it as my sausage foot because it is usually swollen and sometimes looks like a sausage in cute shoes. Good news is that it is doesn't hurt, it's just unsightly.

P.S. I have those boots and I love them and wear them everywhere

And hot chocolate in the summer is completely normal -- so many people drink coffee and since you don't do caffeine -- hot chocolate it is! (I'm that way too since I don't like coffee!)

Okay, I'm starting to get annoyed with how amazing everyone looks in their running photos! Seriously, I'm surprised the medics haven't forcibly made me stop running based on how close to death I look in my pics. haha.

You are not alone! I drink hot chocolate all year too :-) However, the reason I love it so much is the whipped cream and marshmallows that I add to every cup. Do you do that too? Tell me I'm not alone in my weirdness...

I just drank some hot cocoa with whipped cream! I definitely don't drink enough hot cocoa. I'd love to run the Disney Half, running through Disney would be incredible.

I would totally do a Princess Run with you! When Natalie and I did Disney, we initally wanted to do the Disny Wolrd Princess run...til we remembered Disney World is in Florida. Whatever.

I love hot chocolate, too, but my thing is soup! i always love soup. Whenever I order it in Las Vegas or Arizona in the summer, they probably think I'm insane. And maybe I am. Nord Cafe Tomato Soup? Zupas Lobster Bisque? A good clam chowder? Anyyyytime.

I have never had a professional pedicure. I think I might get one on the way up to Portland in a few weeks. They might need to use power tools.

The race photos you posted are all GREAT.!! Lovely ladies!! Accomplished women!

YAY for ellipticizing!! I can't believe I just wrote that since I despise that machine but I remember how great it felt when I was able to start using it after my hip.

I haven't got a pedicure forever. I'm pretty sure the polish on my toes is about 6 months old. My feet don't get too beat up from running but they would never be classified as "cute"-ha!

I love to run outside too but every now and again regardless of the weather I crave a treadmill run. I love when you post your playlists! I just loaded a brand new list today and I'm seriously giddy to run to it:)

Have a great weekend Janae! Enjoy the pump session with your sis!

The pic of you hugging the treadmill is priceless! It could be an advert for a treadmill company!
1.) getting into my cozy socks. Although I live in the south of Spain, we still have our version of winter. Oh, and hot, hot, hot baths
2.) a bit of cute and runners feet. I hate my toes.
3.) Paris in a month!! Woo Hoo and Portugal in July and then moving back to the US in July so that will technically be a vacation at first!

Love this post today, it really engergized me. I love the idea of the race pics!

I am going to miss skiing! I have one last trip next weekend (actually to Utah - going to Park City!). But I am not an avid skier - I would much rather have the weather be warm so it's easier to wander around the cities where I am. In the winter I always just hurry from place to place because I get cold easily!

My feet aren't TERRIBLE, but they do have their problems. Right now I think I have a toenail issue on my left big toe and probably need to go to see a podiatrist, but I am burying my head in the sand and pretending it's fine. It is slightly bluish yellow (TMI?) but is perfectly intact. I am not putting any polish on it until I know what's going on, because I don't want to make it worse.

I am in Warsaw right now visiting my family for a long weekend! This is my last big trip that I currently have planned right now, but I want to plan a week's vacation this summer sometime.

The ONLY thing I will miss about winter is being comfy in jeans. That's it!

My feet aren't great. I have a blister on the end of a toe that won't go away. Plus they are whiter than my legs. Yikes.

Vacation plans... well, we were just talking about this yesterday. Trying to find two short trips to go on. We'll see!
