Almost Famous

I felt like Penny Lane last week on two occasions.

The first one was funny. My girlfriend just got her Ph.D. from Brown. I have no idea why such a smartie pants would want to hang with me, but that's another story (Hi Dr. B). Anyway, one of her friends from the East Coast saw me on her facebook page and was like, "Does your friend Jessica write a blog?" To make a long story short (ok, it's kinda a short story, shorter) she has been reading my blog for a while and I just thought it was cool to actually be recognized by someone who doesn't know me in person. (Hi Trina!)

My second brush with fame was when the lovely and talented Amy from RunnersLounge contacted me and asked if I would do an open mic interview for their website. I was completely flattered, although I don't know if people would really want to read about me. So anyway -please check it out so Amy doesn't regret asking me for the interview. Just go over there and leave a little comment so I know you were there. My Open Mic Interview

Vegas was a blast. I completely lost my voice. I swear it wasn't from screaming at the Thunder Down Under men. The show was actually comical. I spent a lot of time laughing and having fun. Saturday night I danced my fair share of calories away. But I think the AC blasting at the hotel really messed up my throat.

Going to Cabo tomorrow, so my blogging will be sporadic for the next week.
Peace Out Homies.

LOVED the interview. Really. Makes me want to start running again. I've thought about it a lot and think I might start in January, but we'll see how everything's going. You're a badass -- and so inspiring.
