So last I posted I was getting ready for a 5K. Not ready early enough evidently, meaning I was told by my friend it started at 7:15a so I pulled in the parking lot at 6:59…needless to say when the race started my friend and I were still in the parking lot…never a dull moment around here. So we sprinted to the table hoping for a chip, nope…great! Long story short I practically sprinted the first mile and as a result finished with a new personal record!

2. I don’t care if you still have great legs….say this with me, “I am not 13 anymore, I am not 13
3. What would Stacy and Clinton say? Always be on the look out for cameras.
4. Many of my 30 – something – friends are in shape and look fantastic….I am well aware I do
not. I give in to nostalgia way to much in my wardrobe as it is (2 words: scrunchie and vest) to
be stuffing myself like a sausage into pencil thin lycra based pants that will show my “I had a
5. Okay here is the big guns of my speech……..Have you been to wal-mart lately? Look around,
my friend, take a long hard look. There is a woman buying a can of aqua net and a Billy Rae
