Random Thoughts Thursday.

Hey there and happiest of Thursdays to you! It’s random thoughts Thursday, my favorite day for shenanigans. It’s the day that I talk about running, life and just whatever in general. So let’s get into it, shall we?

Hope your week is going fantastic. To me this week has gone by pretty fast! I have been sorta busy work wise so that helps.

Well first I’d like to talk about Christmas races. Are you all into it?! I used to do a local race called the Jog’r Egg Nog’r every year because not only did I always get some sort of age group award, but there was always spiked egg nog at the end. I’m talking different kinds too. It was pretty fantastic. And then they CANCELED it! Out of nowhere!! I was so heartbroken. So now I have to find a new holiday race to love. The Jingle Bell run is fun but it’s only a 5k. I need like a Christmas MARATHON. How fun would that be?!

I am really super duper ready for the weekend. I’m running a FOR FUN TRAINING RUN half marathon this weekend, Rock n Roll San Antonio. I got a comped entry so I figured hey why the heck not. Plus it will be a fun road trip and friends will be there and such. I am all about it. Then the BMW Dallas Marathon next weekend, 26.2 style.

Keeping it real. I am not above deleting and/or unfollowing people on social media lately. And not feeling bad about it. Yes, it’s petty but sometimes a very necessary thing to do. You feel me?? I feel like people feel like they can get sassy because they are behind a computer screen or telephone. You tried it. 2 snaps and we keep it moving. HA.

I have to admit though, dealing with “frenemies” will make you realize how much your cherish your true blue friends. You know, the ones where you can pick up like time and just life in general has not even passed. I just love it.

Did you hear about Matt Lauer getting FIRED?! I actually watch the Today Show too, in the mornings after my early runs.. Man, everyone is getting exposed over this stuff lately. It’s quite a shame.

In happier news, I’m bringing the pink Christmas tree back! Yes, it’s so girly and I just love it. I’m going to start changing the ornaments up every year to make it snazzy.

Have you seen the Christmas tree with only race medals on it?!? Simply a genius idea.

And that is all for now!

What are your random thoughts today? Do you have your Christmas tree up yet? Real or fake?

  1. Firsto off – Good Luck this weekend in San Antonio!!! Second – I have 3 races this month and I will participate FESTIVELY in 2 of them!! Third – Not only have I unfollowed in the last week, but I have also blocked!! There is nothing for you to see here!!!

    The pink tree rocks!!!

  2. Ah! I’ve totally been unfollowing people on social lately too. My pet peeve is people (mostly actual friends) who post the exact same thing on their insta and Facebook … I’m like, I don’t need to follow you on insta then….

    1. Your comment went to spam for whatever reason but I got it out. Yeah IG and Facebook have both just been full of clutter to me lately. The only reason I’m still on Facebook is for my running clubs and so I don’t miss important events TBH!!

  3. Oh Matt Laurer. I work at 30 Rock and would see him often passing by. Not no more! lol
    A Christmas tree with medals – now there’s a tree I can take a liking to!

  4. Have a great time in San Antonio! I have some other friends running that one. Are you shooting for a PR?

  5. CUTE TREE! Good luck at your upcoming races!
    I was bummed about Matt Lauer. I really liked him and was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. And then he admitted it. I love this movement and hope more shit-bags get exposed.
    I’ve had to un-friend family members lately! Mostly because of the “orange debacle”. Didn’t feel bad AT ALL.

  6. No l do not have my Christmas tree up yet !! But I love the thoughts about unfriending people and having some frienemies lurking around… I unfriended a few just last week and am not looking back. Haters 😦 Life is too short to waste energy on people that don’t have your back. Good luck on your run this weekend 🙂

  7. Enjoy those two races! I think I would run any distance if they handed me some “fun” eggnog at the end. I had a run in mind, but won’t be in town for it now so I’ll have to come up with another.
    I have a bright pink tree too for my classroom, but it’s not up yet.
