Unintentional bloggy meetup!

So today was the Living History Farms cross country race. Last year was a blast, but since my "long runs" are four miles these days, I decided to abstain and just volunteer (although being undertrained doesn't stop the vast majority of the runners of this race...)

My job was to hand out the chips. This is the first year they used chips. I'm actually sort of curious how well it worked, considering everyone's feet are submerged in water at least once during this race.

Anyway, this year I got to stay dry and just cheer for people and ring some cowbell. I was cheering for the folks from my running group when, lo and behold! Along comes Miss Allycat! We chatted it up for a bit after the race. I am pretty sure there was a commitment in there to come down and run for doughnuts next year...

In my own personal running news, I suck! Okay, maybe not royally, but I have been lazy lately. But the National Half Marathon in DC in March is tenatively on the plate. And I have some Jewish computer nerd ass to kick. So I better get crackin'!

I don't think you can kick in the ass-al area because it's not kosher. Fortunately, you can boot him in the nuts. Then, since he's a computer nerd, reboot.

I think your blog may be anti-Semitic because it made me use the word verification "rotho". What are you implying, Blogger? Just come out and say it, you coward!

Oooo, the National Half Marathon would be fun!

Better get running.

Hi there,

First off, great blog. I have been checking-in on Back Off Man I'm a Scientist over the last few weeks and thought now may be a good time to reach out. You are doing an excellent job of creating community and interest with your writing.

My name is Ryan and I'd like to know if you'd be interested in trying-out and reviewing (on your site/blog) an innovative new laundry solution for activewear clothing - ProWash activewear detergent.

As you may already know, most athletic clothing these days is designed to retain sweat and maintain a dry feel to the skin, enhancing athletic performance and experience. However, when these same clothes are washed after a workout, ordinary laundry detergents are unable to remove the odors and bacteria, leaving them stuck in the nooks and crannies of high performance fabric. Fortunately, the creators of Dry Cleaner's Secret have engineered an innovative solution: ProWash. Now, consumers have a product they can trust to quickly and easily clean and eliminate odors, bacteria and stains from activewear clothing.

Do you think you would be interested in trying it out and posting a review about it on your site/blog? If so, all I need is your name and mailing address and I'll mail you a full-sized container of ProWash to experience for yourself.

Thank you for your kind consideration and I look forward to hearing from you. Keep up the great work with your site/blog!

Warm regards,

Ryan

Hey, so I like checking in on your blog and I'm not even trying to sell anything!

AND I think you can totally rock out the half mary in March!

AND I want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. Alas, I am buried under three papers this break, so I won't make it out, but it was super-duper of you to invite me -- hope the bird turns out!
