Sunday, July 01, 2007


This weekend was pretty uneventful and when I say uneventful I mean it absolutely nothing of interest happened to me. Friday, I stayed home watched a movie, but I can’t remember what it was called or what it was about so I would deduct that it wasn’t any good. Saturday, I went into the office for about 4 hours, so I could get a jump on this week. (One of my 3 projects has a submittal due on Friday) Hopefully, I won’t have to be at work too late Monday night but I’m guessing I’ll have to be there until about 8 or 10 in the evening.

Saturday night I rented Ghost Rider with Nick Cage. One word will sum up this waste of time, LAME! That’s all I have to say about that.

Today, Sunday, I should’ve cut the grass (among other things) but instead I just did laundry and sat around watching the Concert For Diana on VH1. (You can watch all of the performances at that link). Those Brits sure know how to put on a good show. I also watched Office Space, which is one of my favorite movies of all time. I also took a nap. All that sitting around channel surfing and skipping commercials really wears a guy out thank God for tivo, or I would have had to watch a bunch of commercials.

This week will be a pretty crazy one for me. First off it’s Hawaiian Shirt week at work. But since I am only going to be there for only 1 and a half days, (all of Monday half of Tuesday) it’s no big deal to me. I am taking off half of Tuesday so I can get to Reggie’s house for some pre-concert partying.

Tuesday night I am going to the Def Leopard, Styx, and Foreigner concert at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater. That night will be pretty crazy so look for lots of pictures from the show. Before the concert I’m going to go buy a couple of new tee shirts or dress shirts so I will have something that actually fits me for the concert. A girl that I went to high school with knows some dude that owns a limo company. So guess what, were takin' a limo to the show!! AND we have it until 2 in the morning. How jealous are you right now?

Thursday I’m going to buy some new running shoes. The ones I have are good shoes but they’ve become too big. This will be my second pair of shoes that have gotten too big for my feet since I started running. I don’t know if the shoes are stretching or if my feet are actually getting smaller or I should I say narrower, because of the weight loss. Also, I have been having some pain in both my feet so I am going to get some new proper fitting shoes before I go to the doctor about the pain. The issue with my feet is that when I walk the bottoms of both feet feel like the tendons, ligaments or whatever are stretching. But the problem is that they don’t hurt when I run, it’s only after a run and the next day or so. After researching the symptoms online I believe that it’s some kind of arch support issue. So I am going to go to Garry Gribblers or to Metro Walk & Run to get some professionally fitted shoes or insoles along with some new running shorts and tee shirts. This problem has been on going for a few months now so I better do something about it soon. (Like I said I’m the King of Procrastinators).

Friday, I don't have anything going on so I think I might get my car looked at its doing some funky stuff.

Saturday, is the yearly Friends of Reggie Golf Tournament
it's by invitation only or I would tell you more about it and you could join us on the links. Besides, its just a my usual crew and a few other dudes playing golf and talking shit to each other while drinking beer. Yea, its going to be a awesome time. I am a terrible golfer but it'll be fun, we'll most likely be out in Westport that night. But plans for that night have not been discussed.

My sister and her family are coming to town on Wednesday so we’re going to go to watch fireworks, with her kids that night, but I don’t know where, any suggestions? I’ll be hung over so it should be as much fun as a game of Roshambo.

The weekend of July 15th I am going down to my sisters in Newton, Kansas for her kids Birthday party. Nicole’s birthday is July 10th she will be, umm, 8 years old (I think?), and Zach’s is June 25th will be, umm, 5 years old (I think?).

My August social calendar is open.

In September a bunch of us will be heading up to Chicago for the Chiefs vs. Bears game on the 16th. I think there’s about 10-15 of us going so WATCH OUT Chicago. (Which reminds me I better get my plane ticket now or Chrissie will yell at me again). I don’t know where we’re staying or how much the game tickets will cost. But what could be better than Chicago in September with the unbearable humidity, and the stifling heat? If you live in Chicago or are familiar with the city drop me an email and let me know where we should get drunk at, K?

September 1st also marks a major milestone in my life, it’s the one year anniversary from when I started my diet/workout so look for a post that will include some fattie pictures and more recent pics of your truly. Think of them as before and after pictures. The post will include some reflection of where I was and where I am how, as far as my weight and fitness goes.

October comes the Crawl For Cancer they have not yet announced the date for the fall edition but since I am really cool and have the hook-up. It’s going to be on Saturday the 13th and I’ve already been invited to join a team. This pub crawl is always a HUGE blast. Just ask Erin or Brad they did the one in the spring (but not together) of this year and I have already done 3 or 4 or them in past years. I have the tee shirts to prove it.

Upcoming Races

So what’s coming up for The D as far as races you ask?

August is the Race for the Cure 5K which is one of the largest races in Kansas City.

September is still up in the air I am looking for a 10K. If anyone knows of a fun or challenging 10K race send me a link to their website or their race registration page.

October – This race will be an exciting one. I’m really looking forward to this challenge. On the 20th I will be running my longest distance to date. It’s the Kansas City Marathon I will be doing the half marathon which is 13.1 miles. It’s not a half a whole marathon it’s a whole half a marathon!

November - I will be doing another half marathon called the Gobbler Grind in Overland Park. This web site hasn’t been updated yet. But I have the hook-up so I know when it is.

That’s it for now. Thanks for reading!
