The “+ More”
Can we talk TV for a minute? Specifically, Mad Men? Who watches? I finished the first season last weekend and feel very ‘meh’ about it. The IMDB ratings are high and it wins awards every time I turn around, so part of me is saying, “Hang on and give it a little more time.” But the other part of me knows that if I cross into season 2, I am committed until the end. Does it get better? Opinions appreciated.

One Direction who? I’m old.
But I can be a fan if they jog in jorts and jeans.

The “+ More”
Are you on the Biscoff Spread bandwagon yet? If not, let me be the first to tell you – no, ORDER you – to get your hands on a jar of this stuff. Your life will never be the same. It is put-your-tongue-in-the-jar-to-lick-out-the-last-little-bit delicous.
I also don’t want to go to Biscoff rehab alone.

I should be an investigative reporter. I can piece shit together and get the story told. Especially when it comes to something that I am passionate about – like marathon runners in jorts.
I stumbled upon this picture in a gallery of photos dedicated to last month’s Twin Cities Marathon. After unsuccessfully trying to blow up the photo to get a better look, I wondered to myself, “Are those jorts?”
Then I found the blog of a spectator at the marathon who shared this observation:
11:45 – A guy wearing a headband, midriff-exposing t-shirt, and cut-off jorts (that is jean shorts for you non-hip folks) runs into our station. After he grabs his third Dixie cup of Corona, I wonder if we will need to cut him off. But after pounding it in record fashion, he runs off – on pace to finish 30 minutes faster than I ever did while wearing proper running shorts and properly hydrating with water and Gatorade.
1. I gotta find this jort-wearing, Corona-drinking hunk of man.
2. CNN, call me. I can start tomorrow.

Another BIG thanks to Michelle over at RunningConfessions.blogspot.com for her mad jean-spotting skills at races. This one is from Sunday’s Detroit Free Press Marathon.

Blogger Jen (From Wine to Weightlifting) sent me the following advertisement:
To the marketing department behind this promotion: great choice of running gear on your armband model.
And speaking of Jen, click on over to her blog From Wine to Weightlifting and do two little things for me, please:
- Read the post about me: Lady Lifters Spotlight: Jill! As a bonus, there is a really bad, post-workout picture of me, my cat, and my gigundous quads. If you look close, you can also see my underwear. Classy.
- Read my guest post. Jen asked me to give advice to women who are new to weight lifting or reluctant to try and, in my opinion, it is pretty damn good: There is too much testosterone (and stink) in here!
Tomorrow Jen is running her first half marathon. Jen, you are totally gonna rock that thing! All the best!

Thanks, Friends, for all your kind birthday words.
What better way to start off the third year of this website than sending some inappropriate nudity to you during work hours?
Of course this was taken at Bay to Breakers. Did I even need to say that? Whether or not these girls ractually ran or just walked the race is unknown – but the bib pinned to jeans qualifies them for a post here.
Also, don’t do a Google Image search with “Bay to Breakers” and “nudity.” Just don’t. Trust me.
