I’ve got a lot going on in October. I wanted to fill you all in on some upcoming events and what not, because I am sure you cannot sleep at night without knowing what good old B.o.B. is up too.
First things first. I ran! I ran! I ran! I ran a 5 whole miles last night and it felt great. It was a blessing to run without major pain and as God is my witness I will never be hungry again! Er, sorry about that, I am so dramatic. Just call me Scarlett.
I kept a pretty good pace and immediately went home and dunked my foot in a bucket of ice water. My ankle was a tad sore but feels fine today. Not too worry, I am taking it slow with our reunion.
Now on to the events.
As you all know I am heading to Chicago on October 9th to root on the Redhead, Speedy Jess, Spike, Gatorate, and the rest of you at the Chicago Marathon.
The following weekend, October 16th, I am heading to Detroit for the Detroit Marathon. And guess what? I’ll be at the Expo working for Women’s Running Magazine. Please come by our booth and say hello! And of course, get a subscription!
In other event news, I got a sweet part time job at a smallish concert venue here in town. I work the V.I.P. door and it’s a very fun gig thus far. I get to watch free concerts and make some extra money. It’s only a few nights a month but so far it’s one of the easiest jobs I’ve ever had. I’ll let you all know if I meet any rock stars.
Until tomorrow, keep running and to those of you tapering – it’s almost GO TIME!
You're going to conquer the north in a weeks time! LOL! I'm so jealous you get to work the Detroit Expo… but maybe I'll pop by. So excited for Chicago! Thank you again so much for coming and supporting me, cheering me on and for taking care of me before, during and after!
P.S. You forgot to mention Halloween Half!!!
If you meet any?
Sounds like an awesome job! Great job on the running!
Congrats on getting back on the run. Take it easy. Cheers!
Seems like you are back on the road! I'm happy to see that you are taking it easy – I now of so many people who end up re-injuring themselves trying to do too much too quickly.
And the new gig sounds like fun! Any headliner groups coming up? I may be an old fart, but I still enjoy new and progressive music. And country music. Just no rap please.
Definitely some exciting stuff! I would love to work at a concert venue. Say hi to Bon Jovi for me, kay?
Third Eye Blind! Yeah – I think I even have one of their… cassette tapes…. around here… somewhere….
Most excellent – I can finally get into the VIP Room. Right? RIGHT?
Soo jealous of the job!! I'm always on the lookout for celebrities! HA
Awesome you were able to get back on the road and run!! You will be back in full effect in no time!
Have fun in Detroit, a city dear to my heart. I bet it is a great race. Hope the running works ok, and no injury.
sounds like you have a fun October coming up! Lots of traveling and marathon viewing! The expo sounds like a lot of fun, I really like that magazine!
And Im sooo happy to hear you were able to run again! Boy oh boy that must have been a great feeling! 🙂
hope we can find a race in FL to meet up!! I love your attitude and have so much fun meeting bloggers. You are going to hav ea blast in Chi-town.
congrats on a pain free 5M! can't wait to see you in Chicago. maybe I'll drop in at the Detroit Expo, it's not far from the EL.
Yay! Great job on getting those runs in! And I didnt' get to comment yesterday, but I loved your list of movies! I think I may devote a weekend this month to watch a few!
Quick question for ya…you mentioned putting your foot right into a bucket of ice water. I busted my ankle tendon thingy this weekend during a marathon and it is the size of a softball! And I have a 1/2 this Sunday! How is the ice water on your skin? Does it burn it? The ice packs just don't seem to be working. What do you think? Worth a shot? firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks BOB!
That is a pretty packed October. Yay for running though. Hopefully you keep feelign great.
That expo sounds FUN and it also sounds like you have a very fancy new job 😀 haha!
YAY for running!!
Yay! I made your blog! I'm like famous or something! I'm seriously freaking-out about the 11th; it will be huge to have someone cheering.
I'm so glad to hear you and running are getting it on again.
Ooh, that sounds like a sweet gig indeed! You are going to be a busy girl this month!
Hooray for making up with running–be sure to let us know when you two are "officially" back together 🙂
Frankly Scarlet, I don't give……… Hey, I'm doing cartwheels about your three miles! You're coming to the 'D' fr the mararhon? That's great, I'll be at the expo some time during the weekend, so I'll make a point of visiting.
Wow, you are everywhere! What a fun life you lead, lady. 🙂 Working the VIP door….that sounds like a cool second gig. Have fun at the marathons! Happy Wednesday.
Nice job on the run! You'll be a busy girl. 🙂
I always know what you're up to, therefore sleep comes easy at night, especially because I've now planted a pillow outside your window to rest my stalker head on …
Oh and we need to work out the terms of this so called "protection" you can offer me from the dreaded Spider family.
I'm so glad you're back at the running. I almost stopped following you because of said lack of running … almost.
You have such a glamorous life! Wow! Great for you! I am so happy to hear you're running, and attending marathons and working expos and keeping the VIPs feeling VI! Nice!
But who is this speedy Jess you mentioned? I am not speedy, just very determined. 😉
So, so excited you'll be in Chicago! Can't wait to board the plane and get out there!
YAY for a pain free 5 miles!!!
You have lots going on!! Chicago should be fun.
Awesome news about running 5 miles pain free.
whew…that is how my August and Septembers were!
congrats on rocking the 5! You're on your way back…that's great! Sounds like you have a good group heading off to Chi-town for the race. I'm jealous!
Nice! A pain free five! Glad you and running have begun to make up. 🙂 very cool about working the expo! Part of your regular ft job? (just curious) also cool about the rock star gig. Score some sweet gifts to giveaway! 😉
YEA! You ran!! So glad you and running got back together. I was hoping this wasn't another Brad and Jennifer situation.
Women's Running Magazine? Why have I not heard of this?
Yeah! Pain free running is the best kind. Have fun with the new gig!
