Does it really mean anything when i say you guys rock? Does anybody even care? Not so much huh? Thats completely and totally cool in my book. Everybody is busy living their own lives and darn it, thats the way it should be.
It's pretty fucking great though, that i have made some amazing connections here. Just connections is all. No meetings or meet ups or whatever it is called these days. Just funny, crazy, nice, interesting people. People who blog. So many blogs out there too!! How do you even chose which ones to read?? Well, first you can glance to the right and take a look at my blog roll. There are the funny, crazy, nice, interesting people i talk about.
Most importantly, I look around and the first thing that i look for are blogs that make me smile, giggle or laugh out loud!!! These blogs are dear to my heart! I like laughing!! SO??
Then i look for the raw blogs. NO NO NO!!! Not porn. How many times do i have to tell you that???? Just stuff about eating raw. The newest fads and products and recipes. The greatest and best smoothies. How goji berries make you poop! What seaweed to use to make a good salad!! You know, all the normal everyday questions about being raw.
Then, of course i look for FOOD BLOGS!! Food! Glorious food. Better than sex food!!! Food that will bring me to my knees and up again. Sweets, salty you name it!!! But, no meat!! I do not put meat into my mouth under any circumstances. Nope, it won't happen. Sorry guys!!
Oh shit....how could i forget!! RUNNING BLOGS!!! Ok, here's the thing. I am not sure if many of you know this but raw cool has another blog!! Can you guess?? Wait for it.....Michelle's other blog. It's all about running. Go there. Learn a thing or two!
So, i wrote a bit about setting goals in my running blog. I think it's quite apropos being that 2009 is right around the blogging corner for all of us. Runners, unfortunately are extremely OCD and ANAL. We set goals for every single fucking thing. How many times we blow snot rockets during a run. Goals for the amount of steps we take on each run. Goals for consecutive days running. Short term goals, long term stuff....Gosh its too freaking annoying sometimes, but it has to be done.
So, right now i am 3 days into a month long running streak. I will run every single day in the month of December. And i will run on January 1st. Then i will stop. Like Forest Gump. Then i will run again. Simple.
My next goal involves mileage. In 2009 i want to run 1000 miles. I will log every single run with my garmin 405. It wirelessly sends my data to my computer. COOL???? Damn right its cool. I realize that 1000 miles sounds like a lot of mileage, but for someone like myself it is completely doable. So, i am going to do just that.
Racing.....well next Sunday i will run a 5K Jingle Bell race. Easy peasy!! I won't count that as my goals. Just a fun run.
So, in 2009 my first race will be (hopefully) NYRR Half-Marathon Grand Prix Presented by Continental Airlines: Manhattan Central Park. Sunday, January 25th 2009. You can come to Central Park to cheer me on and perhaps i will treat you to brunch afterwards??? I said perhaps!!! Doable? Perhaps!!!
I made a very cool new running friend. I will talk more about him when i meet him and run with him. All i will say is he is extremely inspiring and amazing!!!
So, what are some of your goals for 2009. For some, it may be to post to your blog every single day for a month. Or every single day for a year!! Thats cool. I need to know. GOALS people. What do you wish to accomplish in the year 2009?? There has to be something!!!
My last goal for 2009 is to maintain and possibly lose some more of my pounds. Ten more lbs perhaps will make me very happy. In one year i lost 30lbs. It was hard, tedious and exhilarating all at the same time. Now i step on that damn scale every single morning, naked, before my run. It's just something i do. Right after i tinkle. Did i mention naked? Girls, you with me here??? Guys, if your laughing at me, well HAHAHAHA!!! I hope someday you will laugh with me!!
I will be doing some blog posts about music. What i think was/is the best of 2008. Just my opinions. You can totally tell me to fuck off. Or not!!!
I am sure i am missing something. My scattered brain holds so much yet i never get it all down. Perhaps tomorrow?
