This one time at band camp….
I never went to band camp. I was cool.
Band kids were cool. Just look at those drummers from FAMU. They are off the hizzy. (google The Urban Dictionary if you need help on that one.)
Speaking of American Pie (good segue way there, dontcha think?), last night I ran track at a local area high school. It was great. The weather was cool(ish), the running group was all out, and the smell of pie wafted through the air as I toiled round and round.
Unfortunately, it was not the delicious smell of apple pie, but the smell of cow pie.
Yeah, the track I run at has a very large Ag department and the animals are housed down wind from the track. Good times.
I made it through five Yasso 800’s and am pretty pleased with them overall. While my ever faithful pacing partner P-Funk (say that three times fast) was not there to help me, I did an okay job of pacing myself. Of course the first one was waaaaay too fast, but I learned my lesson and slowed a bit for the remaining four.
I love track.
If you can’t tell this post has no real rhyme or reason so just go with me here.
It’s a step down week for me so I’ve got 16 on deck for tomorrow.
LOL…….. You were cool! Like we believe that.
Good job getting the Yasso's done while your lungs filled with cow poop fumes 🙂
ah, my high school (and college) were surrounded by farms, so I know very well of the smell you talk about! Fun stuff.
I want to find a track around here for some workouts, but I think there's only one in the city and I'm sure it's packed every night!
You win the award for first LOL of the day for that video. Cheers and happy Friday!
Oh the smell of cow pie. My high school was next to a cow and chicken farm. Tell me how great that place smelled under the hot Georgia sun in August. mmmm
Aw i would take a track with the smell of cow pie any day. Over this Tampa side we have to pay someone to get access to a track. I have yet to find a club that includes it in the membership fee. Sigh!
reading the pie segway i was wondering why in the world would there be pie baking at the track…thank you for clearing that up 🙂
no matter where we go on campus, it always smells like cow dung. guess thats what happens when we're a land ag school and surrounded by farms.
Uhh duh, haven't you seen drumline? Who does the "hot chick" go for? A band geek like nick cannon.
That was a cool video!
You are braver than me! The smell of cow stuff just makes me gag!
You're rocking the track girlie – keep it up!!
maybe the scent of cow poop makes you run faster so that you'll get out of there sooner?!
I was in band. We had band camp. Fortunately we didn't go away for it, we just had to meet every morning and every night at the high school.
And…. I was the flute/piccolo player.
It has been a life of 'Hey Ronda, weren't you in band camp?' … followed by jokes about my flute. So embarrassing.
For the record, I was one of the rare "cool" band geeks! 😉
