My Story SOMEWHERE ON A BEACH
#50: November 24, 2021, 03:44:12 PM
Yesterday I picked up my bib for the Thanksgiving 5K. Sometimes these shoe companies, like Racefaster and Road Runners, have the racing bib in their stores for pickup to encourage some purchasing by the runners. Racefaster has a really nice sneaker at $160 but I took a pass. I loved the orange, white and blue color combo.

I woke up this morning with sore shoulders because yesterday was a male instructor, therefore, we threw a lot of punches. Today was the Wednesday morning female instructor so I picked up some sore abs.

Today she wore a flesh colored cat suit which was an interesting choice I would say. Then she mentioned something about her first husband and that was a red flag. You know what they say about a woman with a first husband afterall.  ::) Probably the same thing they say about a man who has a first wife, hahaha.

Then I went to work and this is the worse travel day of the year. I stopped for coffee and tragedy struck. The cashier gave me the senior discount. OMG. Today I uncovered the male MLC missing link. Senior discount ! Talk about a tale spin. This is how it all starts.

I was so tempted to lift my shirt and ask her if I had senior obliques, hahaha. Absolutely the worse cup of coffee that I ever had. We left work early and I got over myself during my 1.5 hour commute to travel 19 miles. This was actually the best day before Thanksgiving travel day ever. Last night was a real nightmare on the NJ Turnpike.

I was contemplating a double workout on Friday after that discount insult, lol.

It's cold but I will still run in shorts tomorrow since it will be less than 30 minutes. I work this weekend but I have a 12k on Sunday morning. I ran this course in July as a 4 miler. It's all hills so it will be a workout at 7.5 miles. I probably will wear shorts for that one also at 40 degrees

I have Luke Combs on both Monday and Tuesday in NYC at Madison Square Garden. I've never been to that venue before. That was originally scheduled for 2020.

Enjoy your day everyone

Yesterday was the Thanksgiving Day 5K. The temps were 35 degrees with the sun out so I was still able to run in shorts. I was layered up top and that was probably a mistake as I was too hot since it's run at a quicker pace.

I think I'm too conditioned with running longer distances and it will take me time to adjust to these shorter runs. My first mile was fast but I was overheated quickly so I had to slow the pace a bit. It's probably better to always start the first mile slow and then increase the pace.

This morning I was already at Kickboxing as I was burning off 2 pieces of dessert. Unfortunately I think I may have had 4 pieces of dessert.  :o I think tomorrow will be a rest day since my hamstrings are incredibly tight. They are always tight. Not quite sure why.

I have a hilly 12K on Sunday so that will be a much slower start as I have to navigate the hills. Back in July I did run the then 4 mile course at a 5K pace and survived. IDK about 7.5 miles this time around.

Enjoy your day everyone

Omg Luke Combs is my absolute fav! He performed at half time for the Dallas game. And then the Raiders won. Great day all around for me.

Also, I believe the correct nomenclature is “starter wife or starter husband.”

Enjoy the concerts! I’m jealous.

LOL KIT,

Yes, starter spouse, hahaha. Oh I can't wait to use that one. I did see Luke Combs at the halftime show and that was a pleasant surprise. The Cowboys losing also made for a great Thanksgiving.

This morning was my 12K and we had snow flurries and gray skies. So that means I had to wear tights so it was a butt day instead of legs I guess. This was my run club race. Thanksgiving's 5k was not.

Two weeks ago I was last running around in the woods during a club race when I came upon Tequila Bar, Beer Stand and Whiskey Table, lol.

This morning I picked up my bib at 830am along with my complimentary coconut rum chaser which pairs nice with coffee apparently. Well it was cold afterall with a mixture of flurries. I think I'm just going to stick to club runs from now on.

This race was all hills and more hills and it was run in farm country. Last July I ran this course for the first time as it was offered as a 4 miler. Well we didn't encounter "The Hill" during that foray. My Garmin says it was a 633 foot climb.

Now this was a 5K and 12K as the feint of heart were given an option to avoid "The Hill". Apparently runners are lunatics and the majority ran the 12K as conquering "The Hill" is some badge of honor. There had to be 8 hills overall so it was slow going as it takes it's toll on the lower back.

Usually my abs are not sore from running but I definitely feel them now. I had to go to work afterwards so the fun was short lived. Yes I'm looking forward to the concerts and 2 days of rest. I saw him at Wells Fargo Arena in Philadelphia back in 2019 and he put on an incredible show.

I don't think he has put out one clunker yet. I was still in my country infancy in 2019 so I will appreciate it more this time around.

Enjoy your day
Thanks

I took the train into New York yesterday for the concert last night at Madison Square Garden. The train station and arena are connected so technically one doesn't have to go outside. The ride over from NJ is simply enough.

I was there a bit early so I went to eat beforehand. I sat in this section that they refer to as a bridge but it sort of resembles a halo and sits on top of the arena and the view was incredible. The first 2 acts were ok but nothing that was memorable. I knew 2 Ashley McBryde songs and I never heard of the opening act.

Luke Combs opened with "Cold As You" and closed with "Hurricane". Everything in between was great, even some of the songs I really don't like. I think it helps when the crowd sings along.

My favorite song of his is maybe "Forever After All". "Brand New Man" was a good one. Apparently no one likes MIL's as that was everyone's favorite line when he sang "When It Rains It Pours". Hmm, I thought it was just me. ::)

The crowd was incredible and that also adds to the experience.

He really has hit after hit as his show just moves along nicely. Leaving NY can be a bit chaotic afterwards but I just went with the flow and boarded my train. This morning I woke up tired and then I went to work. I felt the effects of running on Sunday this morning.

I'm sitting in a different section for tonight's show but I'm sure the atmosphere will be just as good.

Enjoy your day everyone

Watcher my favorite sing by him is Hurricane.
 
As not much of a country fan, I do like him....and Aldean.

Have fun tonight!   ;D

A quote from a recovered MLCer: 
"From my experience if my H had let me go a long time ago, and stop pressuring me, begging, and pleading and just let go I possibly would have experienced my awakening sooner than I did."

Hi Thunder,

The undercard was pretty bland for this concert and a bit rough. "Cold As You" is supposed to be a follow up to the "Hurricane" story line if you watch the videos.

I had a better seat on night #2 and the acoustics actually sounded better since I was lower I believe.

The MSG venue was nice and my next concert there will be in May with Eric Church. I do believe I prefer the Summer outdoor venues more. The songs were played in a different order for night #2 so it felt like a different concert experience.

I did follow up with four days of kickboxing as I just keep moving forward. Keep moving forward is the motto when attacking the bag, lol. Tomorrow I may have to run just to keep myself honest even though it's cold. I may need to run once a week just to get me to Spring.

I'm very fond of this new "Sweep The Leg" philosophy. I was reading this new phase comes after the agape phase has departed. IDK....Maybe the LBS should be advised to Sweep The Leg and lose the agape. ::)

Well I look forward to the day when the leg is finally swept. No Mercy !

Enjoy your day everyone

Today is Pearl Harbor Day. The MLCer has a lot in common with the Japanese from WW2. Neither one will ever apologize for the atrocities they committed. Sweep The 🦵!

So NY Road Runners instituted proof of vaccination for all of their running events moving forward and the unvaccinated runners are up in arms. I have to say one of the biggest turn offs for me running in Berlin this year was running with the unvaccinated.

The Berlin organizers had so many hoops to jump through just to get into the running expo. Meanwhile addition by subtraction is the best policy and hopefully the marathon organizations, at least, will adopt a vaccine mandate policy, along with the airlines and maybe even The Hero Spouse.  ::)

The concerts that I attended last week required proof of vaccination. It was a simple process. Honestly some of these unvaccinated don't even want to make the effort to get a fake vaccine card. Come on already. No shots. No fake card. Where's the effort ?

I have 41 miles left to run to get to a nice round number of 600 miles for the year. Yes I really took it easy during the Summer. I think this year I'm going to try and adhere to an actual 16 week marathon training plan to see if it actually improves my marathon time.

On Friday I am supposed to take the custodial female victim's child to get his blood work. I really don't feel like reminding the custodial female victim's child that he has an appointment. I believe her child is still unvaccinated. So I wouldn't run with him. Just sayin.

Sweep The Leg everyone.

This morning her son made me wait as he must have gotten up late. If his mother ever approaches my car then that will be the last time I pick him up for anything.

He did mention that he is finishing my first semester of indentured servitude next week. I absolutely have no interest in his online college pursuit.

There will be no Christmas this year because I had to pay for another retainer in order to get my equity from the home sale which is clearly written in the female's MSA. If you are a still married man on this forum, please be advised that the MSA does not apply to you because you are a b!tch, and you can wait for your equity !

The female victim receives her indentured servitude alimony allowance and child support and is still permitted to remain in the home if the sale does not benefit her. Therefore, the male must wait for his equity because he is a b!tch !

Divorce means nothing. The male is still stuck in the dead family. That's the truth about divorce.

I pray everyday that she is not really disordered and she is really MLC. Oh how I dream of the day to learn that she is really an MLCer. Oh how I will tear her a new one if she ever approaches me. Oh please be a ShockSis. (Disclaimer the term ShockSis is only being used as a name only)

This has nothing to do about the divorce BTW. This has everything to do about her delays. Well that's my Christmas wish. I want it to be ML firetrucking C ! Then I will display my firetrucking agape for sure.

So they were really behind schedule at her son's appointment. Not his fault as there was just one technician on duty.

He asked if we could goto a diner for breakfast but he would have been late for his class so we got take out for him and his brother instead. His next appointment will be on Wednesday.

So in conclusion newbies. Take it personal. Take every firetrucking minute personally. Lose the agape and Sweep The Leg !

Well try to enjoy your day everyone
LOL

Watcher- you must have an enormous amount of energy. You are go go go!!! That’s so good. A lot of angst and frustration is expelled through those activities. Yet your last journal I can feel the frustration. However, with some humor. Keep it up!! I really have to get more active like you. Have a good weekend!!
