I appreciate all the comments on my not so subtle "something's wrong with me so I'll have my internet friends diagnosis me" post yesterday. I actually said to Lily on our run this morning that I was going to call my doctor and schedule an appointment for her to check my iron. For those who don't know me in real life and therefore don't have a true understanding of my fear of needles, picture Katniss chucking her bow and arrows into the stream and running through the arena screaming for the Careers (at the beginning, like maybe day 1 or 2 of the games). That's about the level of fear we're dealing with here. Now let's see if this bravado still exists once the doctor's office is actually open.
It could be overtraining, but I need a flu shot anyway, and I like to get my iron levels checked each year since I'm a veg-bac-a-tarian (I don't eat meat because it grosses me out except bacon so I'll eat that if someone else cooks it and it's not for moral reasons so don't lump me in with those annoying overzealous people).
I almost succumbed to insanity and went to WebMD, since it was the one of the two times each season that Eric's team (the Browns) were playing and I could have snuck on, so I appreciate you guys talking me down.
Regarding the picture I posted of our photo shoot, upon reading my blog, my stepfather was displeased with the quality (too blurry), so a do-over photo shoot had to be staged.

While my parents have been visiting, here's some of the awesome things we've enjoyed, aka,
|Five and Below find - seems like it should only be funny if you're drunk|
or a child, but it's hilarious for sober adults.
|The reason I'm scared to have kids: My mom found this for me because|
I told her howTrader Joes ran out this year before I could get any.
How can I possibly ever be that awesome?
|Enough said. Get yourself to Target ASAP. Thank God I need to back to get iron pills.|
|The new Brooks Adrenaline 13s! Unrelated to our visit but I wore them at work|
yesterday and loved them.
|Kari warned me, but I had to find out for myself. |
Don't watch it.
The really weird: I've been listening to The Maze Runner series on audiobook during my long runs. It's a dystopian young adult book about teenagers with a lot of action, so I figured a movie had to be on the horizon. I found a full movie trailor Saturday night and I was thrilled.
Further investigation on IMDB led me to finally figure out it was a trailer for the book. I thought "book trailers" were those little summaries that you find on the back, but this is a real trailer that looks like it could come from Hollywood (in my completely ignorant opinion). At any rate, it wasn't one of those fan made ones, not that I would know what those looked like or watched every one I could find right before the Hunger Games came out in theaters.
Have you ever heard of this "book trailer" thing?
Name something good and bad from your weekend!
