The Streaker May Have Had a Reason

I'm sitting here, in my compression socks, in Atlanta at Morrigan's home as her Baby Shower is this weekend. She and I are taking my Mom to the Biltmore today... the last hurrah before the Chubbalina arrives in seven weeks.

That's right... seven weeks left.

Mo looks so cute!

I trained my hour here this morning, in 35 degree weather. What I've learned now, having trained a few days in this type of weather, is that after 10 minutes, I'm ready to run naked.

Forget the long johns, the hats, the gloves, the fleece, I want to be running naked as I'm so frickin' hot.

So far I have refrained, although I did wonder when I ran through Central Park last week if anyone would even notice... being NYC and all.

I do have a post on Central Park coming... something I wrote in the hotel. I'm all about life experience and when I realized we were so close to CP, I realized, 'I MUST train there.'

In the airport, waiting to board, I texted Erica, and this is the txt conversation as best I can recollect:

Me to E: I want to run through Central Park...

E to Me: Don't go when its dark and make sure there are other joggers.

Me to E: OK...

E to Me: John Lennon was murdered on the corner of such and such and such and such...

Me: *blink*

Me to E: Is this safe????

E to Me: Yes.

I'm all about life experiences, but getting mugged is not one of them.

I'll pass on that one.

Anyway, we are off to The Biltmore. More tomorrow... I'm hoping with pics. We are VERY excited!!!

I have a picture of where John Lennon was shot and where Yoko is living right across from Central Park in my Picasa album.

Actually, Erica commented on a bunch of my NYC pictures because I forgot what the pictures were of when I got home :-)

Happy Baby Shower!! :)

And better you than me running naked - I try to never achieve that level of comic relief around here... ;)

I mentioned it only because I wanted to make you go *blink*. It was actually palpable through the texting medium. I felt it!

I recall a terrible blizzard here in nebraska, Prior to the Ark move.

The blizzard was so bad the power lines were down, the city was hit down..I think 12 inches over night. DH drove me as far as he could to work, and than we walked the rest of the way...

while bundled up and walking, I saw a jogger in running shorts and a tank top...

I thought CRAZY this person is CRAZY.

"I want to be running naked as I'm so frickin' hot."

Hot as in temperature? Or HAWT? Bwah-hah-hahhh!

So near, and yet so far. Would love for y'all to drop by, but I expect the Biltmore awaits. Enjoy...and give my best to your Mom! (And chubbalina=crammed Morrigan, of course!)
