Dear Friends and Family,
First off, I just want to say how great you all are. You listen to my long winded running talk and put up with me smelling like an 800 lb male gorilla in heat after my runs. You also provide supportive comments and encouragement. Really, I couldn’t have picked a better group of folks. Well, except for maybe Uncle Eddy, he’s a tad strange.
Anyway my loves, I have a request.
Please stop calling me after 8:30 PM on Friday nights. I know that I used to go out on Fridays until 4 AM and be available for hilarious drunk text messaging. I also know that I used to stay in on Friday nights and be available for hilarious drunk text messaging. But since running has come into my life I must ask that you stop calling me or texting me past this early (lame) hour.
From here until October I will be running at 5:30 AM to beat the ridiculousness that is the Florida heat. Know that I love you. But if you call me at 11 PM, I am liable to eat your face off through the phone.
HAHAHA! I can totally relate! I am like "how dare you suggest we go out on a FRIDAY NIGHT! don't you know what I have to do in the morning?!?!"
Can so totally relate! That's why they've started calling my husband and he lets them know that I'm ASLEEP! 🙂
times (and priorities) are a changin' 🙂
Agreed!!! Getting up at 5:00 am is not fun, especially if someone phoned and woke you up at 11 the night before!
Girl I am RIGHT there with you 🙂
lol, thankfully i'm not the only one then 🙂
OK OK I'll stop calling.
Good post. The Florida heat must be wretched. How many miles are you running in the morning?
Thanks for visiting. I liked your comment about "figment of your imagination". That was a good one. 🙂
hahahahaha…yep, training for a marathon will put a serious damper on any Friday night entertainment…that's for sure!
For me, I'd add, that on Saturday night, I'm useless from the long run (and early morning) so don't call then either!
These days I can't stay up to the time I use to only start getting ready to go out. How fast things can change!
B… put your ringer on ALARM ONLY. Problem solved. I try to tell you these things! LOL! Great text though… 🙂
HAHA! Awesome 🙂
It's taken a long time, but I think my friends and family FINALLY know not to call Saturday night!
You'll be so proud of me! I got up at 6 am and went swimming for an hour doing laps, and have been on the treadmill 3 times this week…you're my example! I promise not to call you late at night…I'm sawwing logs myself! Mornings are so beautiful!!
May I call you at 4:30 AM to ensure you are up for your 5:30 AM run?
hahaha. running totally took over my 'social life' but now i don't mind so much. i definitely used to go out on the weekend though, not drink, and leave early so i could get up the next day to run! i'm sure i looked REAL cool 🙂
haha love this 🙂 i am asleep sooo early on friday nights too!
