Today we Relay (for Life)!
Quick post. Quick, lousy photo. But you get the idea. I wanted to show you how I personalized my t-shirt. At this point in my life I am not too crazy about t-shirts. I am 5'2" and I hate a t-shirt down to my knees (and they are all down to my knees) so I have started whacking off the bottom few inches. Then, I have a nifty piece of material to use as a headband. One night when I was heading to the Y I had on an IU crimson t-shirt, freshly whacked and I pointed to my headband and said to Doug, "look, I match." Sometimes I am just to sexy (for my whacked off t-shirt).
Yesterday, we had tornado warnings, torrential downpour, limbs down, lightening and thunder. This same weather is basically predicted for this area up until a week from this Sunday. So, we shall see. Right now the sun is trying to shine and the relay starts in two hours.
Other than a few lunch-time and a short walk with Chelsea last evening, I haven't walked or exerted myself. I am stopping at Starbucks for my venti mocha. I'm eating two boiled eggs with butter. I am wearing my personalized t, my red Hawaiian athletic shorts, socks and tennies. Doug said "whatever is comfortable." Silly boy, it isn't about comfort, it is all about being uniquely cute. Some men just don't get it. (The straight ones, anyway.) I can't find my old plastic poncho. That is what I really need if it rains like it did yesterday. IUAA has graciously loaned us a pop-up tent. We are the IUAA team. I am stopping for one of those clip-on off! thingys to clip on my waist.
Speaking of clipping on my waist, my electronic pedi went kaput this week, so I am resorting to my old waist pedometer. One of my readers asked if wearing a pedometer helps. Studies have shown that if you wear a pedometer, you will move 30% more than if you don't. I think it is just a constant reminder..."move, move!"
I'm charging my ipod and camera battery. I can't think of anything else.
If you are local, we'll be at the Monroe County YMCA. Come out and walk for awhile with us!
