Hey Marie!

Just wondering how you shoot your vids? What do you use?


Going back to watching your vlog now...

Depends on the day.
Sometimes I use my Flip mino and other days I use the webcam in my MacBook Pro. I now edit the videos in iMovie but used to use Premiere Elements. Hope that helps :)

I love that Pinky and The Brain looked like they were sitting on your shoulder through that!

First, you look fan-freaking-tastic.

Now on with the show...

As a slow runner, I couldn't agree with you more. On the way to work the other day, I was behind a cat with two running stickers. One simply said "Ultra" and the other drove me to a place of rage and depression: "You ran a marathon? That's cute." I thought about following that person to their destination and having a friendly chat about my running journey. But I don't have tha kind of work flexibility.

I have a hard time not comparing myself to others. Especially in the blogging community. It's all about knowing -at the end of every day- that I did the absolute best I could within the parameters of that day.

And Pinky and the Brain made me smile. Nathan and I sing a lot of madeup songs to the tune of their themesong.

Have a great weekend, my friend.

Pinky & the Brain are always there :)
There is actually two baskets filled with stuffed animal mice on the bookcases behind my sofa. They just don't get featured like P&B :)

@Krissie - I'm glad you get me and you can come and ramble here ANYTIME.

i'll be too busy thinking about beating last year's time to notice that 10yr old passing me (again) at the 7k mark.

Holy good timing. I watched this after coming home from work and having a major meltdown because I didn't think I trained enough this week. Well said, Mousie. Dang.

PS - You one pretty lady!

Thank you!

As the girl who has attempted to complete C25K 80 times, I do get fed up with the fact that other people just decide one day: "I think I'm going to run a marathon" and do it with one month of training. But when I look back on where I've come from, accomplishing 5 minutes of running has been a huge accomplishment for me in my own journey. There was a time when I couldn't walk 4 blocks comfortably. Now I can walk the butt off anyone (running is another story - but I'm working on it).

Thanks for putting the "elitists" in their place. They may laugh at my five minutes but to me, it feels like I've earned a gold medal.

Very clever thoughts, I think the comparison aspect that you reference is something that we all need to remind ourselves about.
