But first. Since I know you all love horrible race pics:
From Sunday’s road mile. Doesn’t that look like fun? Also, my thighs make Thanksgiving turkeys jellus. Yep.
The other day, I picked up a six-pack of beer that I was pretty stoked about, entirely because of the name and label:
I suppose this beer whispered seductively to me from its prison in the grocery refrigerator case because I’m a fellow redhead now? Um, sort of? Even though it’s totally from a bottle?
In any event, I allowed myself to to seduced.
As I poured it, the color of this Red Banshee Ale from Fort Collins Brewing stuck me as darker than expected. Deep brown, actually. And the flavor was more like a brown ale or a Scotch ale, too: very nutty and malty, low carbonation, almost a little watery. Drinking this beer was enjoyable enough, but I wouldn’t say it blew me away.
Bottom line: Meh. You’d be better off with a Killian’s. (Purchased at Peace Street Market, $10/six)
Some other odds and ends….
Weekly mileage: Not stellar, but not horrible.
Mileage building? Strength training? What? Sigh.
Random semi-giveaway #2: In which I realized that I never picked a winner for that Hunger Games book. Oops. Random internet thingy picks…Megan! Check your email, yo.
Random semi-giveaway #3 (a new one!): Don’t ask how I came across these shoes. If I told you, I’d have to kill you.
But I promise that they are brand-new, never-worn Brooks Glycerins in a women’s size 10.5. These are uber-cushy neutral shoes, and they retail for $130 (although this is last year’s model). If you want ’em, email me! That’s firstname.lastname@example.org.
Random question: As of late, I’ve been struggling a little to come up with content for this here blog. As you’ve probably noticed, I gave up posting about my random dinners and daily booze consumption and boring training runs a while ago. Although I have no doubt that I want this blog to continue to cover all of those things…the whole daily-diary format is just kinda draining and not all that interesting. To me, anyway. Therefore, I’ve been trying to take a more journalistic approach to the content here. You like? No like? What would you like to see more of? Less of?
If you choose not to reply, I’ll take your silence as a blessing to post (even) more badly-drawn cartoons and photographs of my cats.
