T-Day Over

A few things to consider. Last weekend Racer and I went and saw the Muppet movie. It was great. Now, if you are all things Muppets then I’m sure you already have your own Muppet Whatnot, but if you don’t then I suggest you get busy.

Now, far be it for me to think too deeply into something simple, but I couldn’t stop thinking about the love story of Kermit and Miss/Mrs/Ms??? Piggy. First off, are they even married? I vaguely recall a wedding scene in Muppets Take Manhattan, but according to a 2011 interview with Jimmy Kimmel the answer is no. NO?!? And this makes we wonder if they should really be celebrated as a couple. Seriously, the guy has been dating her for my entire life and they have had more fake weddings than Kim Kardashian and Britney Spears combined. The frog doesn’t need to commit because he gets the bacon for free…or so it seems. This sad love saga is equally as poor a message as Eminem and Rihanna’s Love The Way You Lie. What kind of example is this for young children?

So, last week I managed a few runs up in the crisp Colorado air. It sucked. My attempts to simulate low oxygen high altitude conditions by running in place in our steam packed bathroom failed to adequately do the job and after one mile I was praying for an angry mountain goat
to attack me and end my misery. There were none. Where have all the good goats gone?

I’m slowing getting back into running shape, but I’m enjoying the blessed struggle. As the winter slowly builds its momentum, preparing for its annual months of occupation, I’m feeling the urge to run more and more. It always amazes me how my desire to run waxes and wanes, and how other loves such as reading do the same—thereby creating a life where different passions rise and fall in such a way that one is always blooming as another begins its hibernation.

Kermit could probably do better.

Thank goodness you didn't let Kermit's mishandling of his relationship with Miss Piggy overshadow your momma's good upbringing! I'm quite excited to be made into an honest woman by you. :)

I honestly think Kermit is trapped in a "relationship" with a psychopathic, homicidal swine. He could do better, but it would be to his own demise.

Glad to see that running hasn't completely escaped you. Coming out this way for the Superbowl 5K again this year? Also, I could use some recommendations for some hilly long run routes in this area. Prepping for the Flying PIg and need some llooonnnggg gradual hill routes.

I love the muppets but Animal is my favorite. Probably why I dressed up as him for Halloween, I'm pretty sure there's a picture of it on my page? Hope your running motivation is still going strong even though winter is really just now getting here.
