There is a plot underway. And it is a plot to take me down…or something like that anyway.
I spent yesterday at my parents with my kids, my sister and her kids to celebrate my birthday. And randomly, with absolutely no forewarning, my sister walked by me with a little grin on her face and mumbled under her breath, “we’re gonna get you on your long run.”
WHAT?! Excuse me? What does that even mean exactly? As if I don’t already have enough to worry about: heat, humidity, mosquitoes, turkey duck, not to mention mile after mile after mile. Nope. Now, I also have to spend my next 18 miles wondering at what point my sister and brother-in-law are going to jump out of the woods and scare me or whatever it is that they’re planning on doing because I could pry no further information out of her except that she does have to go to the store before her master plan can fully take shape. And also that no, they are not planning on running with super soakers strapped to their backs to hose me down as they run by (which actually would be kind of fun I think. Just imagine if during the hot hot summer months we all made a pact to do our long runs with super soakers, a wild pack of outlaw runners hell bent on cooling off any sweaty soul that crosses our path. Would definitely make the time go by faster don’t you think?)
So anyway, I need help. First, what do you think they could possibly be planning on? And second, how do I get them back? Now, they both read this blog (sometimes), so if you’ve got something really good, go post it on my Facebook fan page instead of here so they won’t see it. (See Sis I told you you should get on Facebook. So, na na na na na na :-p ). I’ve got a little time. No long run this weekend b/c of the triathlon, but by next weekend I need to be prepared. So think people! Think! I need a plan (imagine me silently mouthing HELP here).
P.S. Giving away two tubes of Lanacane Anti-Chafing Gel if anybody wants to give it a show you can view the details here. Also announcing ANOTHER terrific giveaway tomorrow! Stay tuned...
