47/1,000 miles 2012
Happy Monday! You can’t tell, but right now I am using all 17 muscles to smile PLUS the 43 that it takes to frown to keep from throwing a temper tantrum over this whole “back to work” ordeal.
Thanks, Tim Gunn. Love your job or not, sleeping in trumps everything.
I was going to write a glorious blog entry about the process of analyzing a text from a postmodern, feminist perspective, but then I opened up a link to Perez Hilton and game over. Instead, I think I will capitalize on a random thought that occurred to me about which celebrities I would like to have as workout buddies.
1. Matthew McConaughey
Obviously Matthew McConaughey is in stellar shape! I feel that I could transition more smoothly from treadmill to outdoor runs with someone who is a seasoned pro at jogging down a sandy beach.
2. Felicity Huffman
In my opinion, I don’t think you’ll find a better body on any female celebrity, athletically speaking. Don’t give me that “Courgar Crap” either; she’s got one banging’ bod regardless of age. I think Felicity would keep me inspired to do one more set.
3. Rob Lowe
Besides a few 80’s shirtless scenes, I don’t know much about Rob Lowe’s athleticism. What I do know is that I fell in love with the audio version of his book, Stories I Only Tell My Friends. It wasn’t the content so much as the smooth jazz tones of his voice. I could picture him sitting on a barstool, book in hand, and reciting the words he had so purposefully chosen to share in his autobiography…shirtless.
4. Kelly Ripa/Mark Conseulos
Winners of the “Hottest Couple Most Likely to Still be Married in Twenty Years” award. I’d love to see Dear Hubby and I become more in-tuned with one another, fitness wise. He likes to play sports to get in his cardio, while I like more targeted workouts. There is a 15k road race coming up…
5. Neil Patrick Harris
He just seems like such a genuine guy; I picture us being able to establish a casual friendship quite easily. He could keep up a conversation as we knock out a 14 mile long run.
