Friday Things

I'm feelin' lucky, lucky, lucky this Friday!  Yes, three times lucky (which, by the way, is the title of a book I want to read) because I just put three races on my calendar yesterday.  Whoa, three races planned in one day.  It would seem that I did get enough referrals from my Hot Chocolate Ambassador code for a trip to their race in the city of my choice. (!!)  Is it any surprise that I'd choose Chicago?  Whoop, whoop - I'm comin' home!  Thanks to everyone for using the code (SEAMUG1) for your local Hot Chocolate race, and keep on keepin' on with it to get your free travel mug.

Also, I found out that I won an entry to this year's Mustache Dache from the super awesome folks at Gametiime (yest that's with two i's).  They're a local startup website that helps you find races, but with cool things like profiles and wish lists. Go check them out if you're in Washington or Oregon, and check out The Mustache Dache.  I'm so glad I'll be joining in the fun again (here's last year's race report).  

Lastly, I'm feeling so lucky that our Party Like a Flockstar team is officially signed up to revisit Ragnar Northwest Passage.  The excitement people, it's hard to contain.  I also listened to the latest Another Mother Runner Podcast during my run today.  They talk with the co-founder of Ragnar, and it was so fun and so funny - made me wanna run ALL THE RAGNARS.  I highly recommend giving it a listen if you, too, love Ragnar or are curious about it.

Other interesting and fun things I stumbled upon the internet this week:

  • Um, also, this video

I think this girl might just be about three years old, as her mannerisms remind me of my daughter.  I'm also wondering how this dad kept a straight face the whole time.  PRICELESS.  I don't ever want her to grow up!  

Which brings me to my playlist song of the week.  The Pursuit of Happiness by Kid Cudi (Remixed by Steve Aoki) was featured in the film Project X.  If you've seen this movie, you'll know why I really don't want my kids to grow up.  Alas, it's a fun song.

Happy weekend!
