Bringin’ Sexy Back.

Well, I did it.  I went for another run.  I didn’t want to.  But, Shawn was trash talking me, so I was like Bring It! 

The temperature was up to 47 this afternoon and the sun was shining, so I was able to wear the one and only pair of running tights I have.  I got dressed, and when I came downstairs Shawn said (and I quote) “Whoa.  You look hardcore.”  Sweet.  So, I made him take a picture, because I didn’t want to let you guys down again.

When I started off I knew it was going to be a good run, because the very first song on my iPod was “Sexy Back.”  How in the whole world did my iPod know I was bringin’ sexy back?  It probably remembered what I was wearing last time.

I have to say, it was an easier run.  There weren’t even any dogs to flip off or teenage boys to spit loogies at.  Oh wait.  That was the other way around, wasn’t it?  Whatever.  Oh, and I figured out what was up with my Nike sensor.  So, this time I knew where I was at with my miles, and I apologized to the voice in my ear bud for calling her a whore last time.  She didn’t seem to mind though.

Here’s the breakdown:  4 miles, time of 39:35, pace of 9:53, and 500 calories burned according to my heart rate monitor.

I consider today’s run a success!  Only 2.2 more miles and I’ll be up to the distance for the 10K.  I’m not sure I’m stopping at the 10K though.  Apparently, somebody thinks I’m running a half marathon with her in August.  Maybe I will, but only because there’s going to be a pool party afterwards.  I wonder if I can bring a blow up doll for a floatation device in the pool?

Congratulations on a great run! You are totally bringing sexy back.

So about the running buddy... a friend and I were there together, but we were going to go at our own paces. Surely I would come in ahead, because she hasn't been running long, right? DAMN! She beat me by about 30 seconds. I am giving up all pride and admitting defeat. I will be sticking with her from now on! :)

Good for you! I run (and I hate it). I have a half marathon coming up in a few weeks. What was I thinking??? I do about 2-3 a year but I have not been training at all for this one. I have a friend trying to convince me to run the Chicago marathon in October. I'm crazy, right?

Leah said...

You look hardcore Tami... why bring the sexy back when it didn't leave you at all? Hahaha! You look great my friend! 10K? Hmmmmm... I think I will stick with my 5K for now.

Have a great day! xoxo

You do look hardcore! I mean really. You look like you could do a marathon! Why stop at a 1/2 when you can do a whole. Remember this is spoken by a girl who couldn't walk a 10K!

Christa said...

Good for you! Congrats on bringing sexy back! I will def have to go check out those swimsuits!

Taylor said...

Wish I could run 4 miles in under 40 minutes! Hey, do you wear your Nike sensor with Nikes? I've been interested in them, but I wear Mizunos and have been wondering how that works.

Natalie said...

I wish I looked like that in a pair of running pants. I also wish I could run 4 miles in that time. It would take me a week!

Baby Wanted said...

Tami not only are you hardcore but girl you are beyond sexy...you are, hmmm, how should I phrase it, a MILF!! LOL, great run!

Hillary said...

"Somebody" is totally making you do that half marathon, and that "somebody" will be sending the training plan to you soon. All forms of flotation devices will be permitted at the pool party, but Juan might need some swim trunks if your girls are coming!

You totally look hot and I respond to trash talk pretty much the same way you do. Like, oh yeah, watch me kick ass!

Are we doing the Chris Cook again this year, I think we are going to be in town?

Danielle said...

You go Hot Momma! Very envious here and am so excited the weather is finally cooperating for some running.

jill said...

you totally make me sick. geez. glad we don't live close by ... my psyche couldn't take looking at your gorgeous self all the time! hahah! can't wait to hear about you rockin' the race!

Stephanie said...

So, I am a dumb loser who has never completed a 5K and my pace sucks. What is the best way to improve my pace?

BTW: You totally looked hardcore! But, weren't your calves cold?

Short Southern Momma said...

dang! You go girl! Hope your having a great day! xoxo

Taylor-Made Wife said...

Hardcore indeed. Good for you for running with that much snow on the ground.

Heidi said...

I love that you put so much effort even into your running appearance. You should see what I look like running. I definitely don't match and my tights, though not from 7th grade, are from my marathon days in college. That's more than 10 years, which goes to show you that you're right. Spandex is always equally out!

The Girl Next Door Grows Up said...

That is fantastic!

I also love that song and so does my 2 yr old :-) Every once in awhile she will ask from the back of the car if "we can bring sexy back - yah!"

Lindsey said...

You look awesome!

Shawn said...

Your Ipod is VERY smart.....

d.a.r. said...

Ow ow!!! Lookin' good!

Erin said...

I love me some JT and Sexy Back should be the caption to your photo---you look amazing!

Great job on your run! You are so inspiring (and I am heading to Jazzercise this afternoon, woohoo!).

Anonymous said...

Awesome! Hope you'll stick with it and train for that half marathon! What happened to Iron Godess?

Amy said...

Kick Ass Tami!!!! You're rocking a good pace! And Shawn's right...you do look hardcore!!

You should totally do the half marathon. You have plenty of time to train and get ready! Good luck;)

atta girl. ain't it crazy how a song can fit PERFECTLY? I was about to die at 6.5 miles on Thursday, and I was being a big baby, and I was running through my BFF since birth's neighborhood, and the Boom Boom Boom song came on (you know, from Jock Jams ... "boom boom boom, let me hear ya say way-oh ..."), and it was like Popeye got some spinach.

I think my song was lamer than yours.

Paige said...

You are totally bringing sexy back! Hot Momma! ha! You make me want to run!!!

The Kid said...

way to go!

Baby Wanted said...

Yup, we got a bread maker from him. It was actually a great visit, and I gave him so much hell and then he said to me, 5 years? It was only 3 that I didn't talk to you guys...3 or 5 same damn thing, lol!

One Take On Life - Heather said...

Very hard core indeed...I wouldn't look that put together if I went for a run outside. But lucky for me I am not a runner. Way to go!

Just Add Walter said...

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

If I dress like that, do you think people will think I'm a runner?
