For Boston, and my wardrobe this week

I'm still left speechless and angry and sad about Monday's happenings, so I'm choosing not to really talk about it. I'd just start babbling like an idiot, and that's not anything anyone wants to read. Instead, I want to share this clip from one of my favorite people alive. I love 99.999% of everything that comes out of Stephen Colbert's mouth. Pure comedic genius.

I shared with my principal, and fellow marathon runner, on Monday night that I was going to wear a race shirt to work the following day to honor Boston, and that he should too. (I don't think he gets on Facebook too often so I wasn't sure how on earth he'd find out!) Not only did he wear a race shirt (OVER his dress shirt) on Tuesday, he wore another one today. He then informed me that he was going to wear one every day this week. Give props to Boston AND dress down for the rest of the week? Don't mind if I do!

Yesterday I wore my Houston marathon shirt. Tomorrow I think I'll wear a Disney. Friday, perhaps San Antonio. (Today was a dress since I didn't get the memo that he'd be fine with me wearing race shirts all week. What a loss.)

I'm totally bummed that I've been feeling really crappy- not because I've been feeling crappy, but because I haven't gotten to run for Boston yet. I'm hoping to get out there this weekend at the latest! I hope you all were able run and reflect this week!

I've been singing this song all week. You should too. They make me think of high school and home. Love me some Murphys!

Did you wear a race shirt this week? 

Anyone have a good workout this week? 
--I'll need to live vicariously through y'all :)

What bands make you reminisce or think of home?


  1. I posted that colbert video to my facebook page- so true!! Loved it.

  2. That Colbert video made me laugh and I've had Dropkick Murphys stuck in my head for most of the week. I did not get out and run, but I did go for a walk/waddle with the dog. I also wore one of David's Red Sox shirts to work on Friday, because none of my Boston stuff fits at the moment.

  3. I wore my first marathon shirt the 1st day that runchat announced everyone to. It was awesome to see all of the other shirts!
