Join me as I travel around the country to fulfill my goal of running a marathon or half marathon in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia!

When you grow up...

Ladies...when you grow up, leave college, and enter the real world, a lot of things will change. 

You need to know what a 401k is, how an HMO differs from a PPO, why April 15th matters so much, and many other mundane life necessities. However, the most important thing to hit you in the real world is that there will not be a room full of 4 guys down the hall who you can run and get when you need to kill one of these:

Welcome to the real world, Biotch. So gross.
You're gonna need about half a can of Raid and a heavy shoe for that sucker.

In other news, I went for a hot sweaty run last night. Hill repeats = drenched in sweat.
For real, what age does acne stop?

When your shirt is two different colors you had a good work out. Sorry I'm ADD and forgot to look up.
I know many of you have been dreaming of the day you would see a picture of me struggling to do one push-up. You're welcome. And yes, those are 6 pairs of cowboy boots lined up behind me. Be jealous.
What is one thing you miss about college? I miss getting ready to go out with my girlfriends. Doing our hair and make-up together while taking shots of Burnetts and dancing to Pitbull songs was fun.

UM.. wtf is that?!?! It looks like a cross breed between a centipede and maybe a scorpion... either way, your fingers are WAY TOO CLOSE!!

Marisa @ The Pace of my Life said...

that bug is pretty gross. As far as the acne, I am almost 34 and wondering the same thing!

Becky said...

That is a seriously creepy bug! Gross!!

And I swear, acne will never go away. I've had it for years. Boo!!

Mon Amour said...

I HATE centipedes! Least favorite bug. I like to trap them under cups and wait for my boyfriend to come over to get rid of it

Team Lando said...

That bug is CREEPY.

And I went to school in Santa Barbara. So I miss that. A lot. But it's been sort of a long time, because now I'm a real grown up with a husband and a kid and everything.

Weird.

But I miss going to the beach for a bonfire at 10 pm because we could.

good for you! I can only do 2 pushups....3 on my good day.

And that hairy bug is yuck!

The Green Girl said...

I miss how carefree I was in college. ::wistful sigh::

Megan said...

I am so with you on wondering when acne goes away. Ugh. I don't even really miss college that much because I didn't do anything fun. I was just broke as a joke.

Julia said...

those bugs used to totally infest my room back in KY. not okay because they are disgusting. i miss having crazy ridiculous stamina and being able to stay up ALL night but still have energy the next day. yeah...what happened to that??

Britt said...

We get those nasty creatures all the time and they freak the hell out of me. When you squish them they squeal like a pig. Ick.

PS I am 27 and still get acne...I don't get it.

Rose @ Eat, Drink, and Be Meiri said...

You are ROCKING that sweat! Nice!

Richelle said...

I doubt acne ever goes away. I'm still dealing with it at age 27 and I expect to ask I get into my 30s and 40s.

I miss how close in proximity my friends were in college. It's so hard to hang out nowadays!

Jayme said...

I miss the social aspect of school!! All my friends were just *there*; while, nowadays they are across the country!

Fruit Fly said...

If you figure out the acne age, please let us know!!

Okay - WHAT IS THAT BUG?? I've never seen anything like that before!


***the word verification for me right now is "fratorm" - a combo of frat & dorm? Did it know you referenced college in your post? Creepy!

Running Moose said...

I cry for my wife when I see one of those puppies. Boots? My wife had some photog friends over for a weekend last fall. One of them left a pair of them here. They were so drunk that entire time, no one remembered if they left boots. I threw them away last week. I guess that's a combo of cowboy boots and college life for a group of 30-50 y/o women for weekend!

Margs @ Faster Bunny said...

omg that is gross!! no idea what the diff between HMO and PPO is still haha.

I miss having all my friends around all the time. And being able to be blackout drunk and not be hungover the next day. (hahaha not that I do that anymore, but it's amazing what you can do in your early 20s)

Erin @ UntilYouTri said...

AHHHHH. I totally made my husband go catch a silverfish that was in my bathroom the other day. I was freaking out and finished getting ready in his bathroom. Congrats on the awesome sweatastic run! And yeah, I really thought I would be over this acne thing by now, too. Bleh!

Hmm, thing I miss most about college...only having a class or two a day, and the rest being FREE TIME!:)
