Zebras and the Pirate!

Howdy Loopsters!!!  Wow, this is so easy!  Thanks Dave for getting this going. You da best!  

So let's see.  I did my first 100k last month. Woodstock.  Everything that could go right did go right. It was so easy and I stayed positive the whole time!  Weird! 

Anyways, I took a few weeks off, then ran a few, then had eyeball surgery last Friday.  I just ran my first post-op run.  It was kinda hard!  On my run I saw the two neighborhood zebras that make appearances at a little horsey paddock once in a while.  They must be babysitting. Zebrasitting?  I didnt have my phone, so since there are no pics, it might not have happened.  

My next race is rnr Savannah Marathon in November with some local RBs.  

Heress a pic of my pirate eye.  Arrrrr!  I don't have to weear the patch but it helps once in a while.

I can't wait to actually read some bloops again!

Yes! Embrace the patch! 100K!!! Congrats on that! That's craziness.

I did Savannah RNR and loved it. Savannah is a very cool town. Read "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" before you go.

I read that many many MANY moons ago.  And then had to watch the movie (which is never as good as the book).  I went to Savannah a few years ago, but chose to run along a rice field instead of touring downtown.  I was dehydrated, the temps were 80* and humidity was 1000%.  I regretted my choice.

Eye surgery? Ouch. Ye dirrrrty scallywag.

I prefer to be called wench, thankyouverymuch.  And I was totally asleep for it, so it didn't hurt a bit!  Fun fact:  They peel the white of your eye back to get to your eye muscles.  Hope you enjoyed that little tidbit.

Using one eye must make running tricky balance wise?

I used both eyes.  I use the patch when my eyeball gets tired of working.  ps: I don't recommend driving with an eyepatch on.  Or bending over--your depth perception isn't the best.

Zebras and the Pirate would make a good title for a kid's book. I'd read it to my kids at least.

Congrats on the 100k, Lass!! That's an awesome accomplishment. Love the picture, but it's still not quite as good as the chewing videos. Kick butt in Savannah!!

Doing it with Loopsters is the way to run a 50 miler.  I did, and it was the best (only) 50 miler ever!!!

Savannah's great, good luck and enjoy it! I highly recommend grabbing a drink at the Olde Pink House (food's good too, but pricey), it's an institution there.
