Happy Birthday To Me!
If you would've told me a year ago on this day I'd wake up at 6:30 in the morning to run 3 miles in 250% humidity I woulda laughed in your face. But, amazingly that's how my birthday day has started! yay!
This little gem on the left is the Winged Victory of Samothrace, also called the Nike of Samothrace, is a third century B.C. marble sculpture of the Greek goddess Nike (Victory). Since 1884, it has been prominently displayed at the Louvre and is one of the most celebrated sculptures in the world. Read more about the Winged Victory of Samothrace here.
A quick recap of the short runs this week...
No yoga master sightings this week. Bummer. He must be stuck in one of the trees. I did find a potential man/boat mate. While running Tuesday morning, I saw a boat with the tramp stamp Tender 1. I thought wow - what a great man/boat potential for me. Then I saw Tender 2, and Tender 3, and Tender 4, 5, 6 and 7 - and realized I was running past Boys Town in the harbor. Bummer. All the good ones are gay.
I did have a major breakthrough on the Viagra boat mystery. Wednesday morning I saw a little Sea Doo boat named Viagra. I was right! The big yacht named Viagra is really a little boat and needs the pill to turn into a big boat. Little Viagra. God Bless; I knew it was out there. I'm glad I have confirmation on my theory.
Physically I feel pretty good. Only cause for worry - it feels like someone has filleted my lower leg muscles with a paring knife and sewn them back on to my shin bones. Other than that I feel great.
I bid you farewell on this most grand day of celebrations. I'm off to get schnockered at the Cubs game. I think I've earned it. :-)
