Thanks to all of you who’ve emailed in our absence (MSI, Dr. Love: shout out). It’s really such a bore when one’s real job interferes with our blogging time. We’re never able to be the chefs, fashionistas, writers, pop culture connoisseurs, or friends that we want to be. Thank you for your patience. This Barbie can’t always blog, but this Barbie comes with a paycheck.*
One thing we have been doing? Running the SAV half with great friends! Check out some photos and our latest running mix. More posting to come soon.
*Yes, we’ve been waiting to write a blog post with that title since we heard the phrase.

As the countdown grows near for the good Doctor’s post, we’ve got a tribute to what the Good Doctor says “does a body good.” Who woulda thought that $86 workout pants could be worth it? But as Missy Misdeamnor Elliot tells us, is it worth it, let’s me work (out), and let’s work out in lululemon! These are the cutest and most functional workout pants on the market. Get ready to run with a little more skip in your step!!

“If you’re not first, you’re last.” – Carter Woolfolk, On marathons
The first marathoner was a Greek messenger named Pheidippidies who ran 26.2 miles from Marathon to Athens to deliver the news of the victory over the Persians. The story goes that Pheidippidies called out, “Rejoice! We conquered!” Then he keeled over and died.
Fast forward to the present, marathon running is a pasttime for many Americans. Even celebs are doing it. Marathon running has a crazy subculture that goes along with it and is just one of the many things that make it entertaining. Why do we like it? It’s cool to have so many facets tested in a span of 4 hours: physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional. And it’s just fun…so if you want to track elaney and Reader Grace in Philly: check us out here! Here’s to hoping we see Katie Holmes!

Few more for you:
“Fantasy (remix),” Mariah Carey
“Get Up,” Ciara
“Call Me Al,” Paul Simon (can’t explain it, but unnamed high school football player** mentioned it got him pumped up before a game while elaney was painting a break thru sign – loved to work out to it ever since)
**crush has since fizzled

While perusing the latest Gap brand, Athleta, we stumbled across a new innovation in the realm of running / walking ladies fashion. In the past, we’ve experienced severe jealousy of “the tennis skirt,” so we were delighted to discover the running skirt! However, this may be taking it to a whole new level. Fair maiden atheletes, do tell: what do you think about the running dress?

Nothing like getting your week off to the right start with a Monday morning run. Thinking of getting into running? We recommend that you get a running partner (reader Hmmmm is ours) and commit to doing your body right. It’s obviously a little tougher to do it on Monday morning, but it sure does make you feel good. As they said in League of their Own, “the hard is what makes it good.”
