july 2010 & csn gift card winner

past two mondays:

this monday:

slight case of depression going on here. slight.

hey, let's lift the mood here with a recap of july. oh wait...

july 2010
total mileage: 51.60 (umm. this used to easily be my weekly mileage.)
time spent running: 7:52:51
days off: 23...
pounds gained: too many. i actually fit into my "fat work pants"; the ones i used to have to roll down.
days worked: 8 (best month ever!)

well if i can't boost my own self-esteem i will at least make someone else's day. the winner of the $60 csn stores giftcard is jess of see jess run! (jess, email me at lindsay at chasingthekenyans dot com to confirm your email address. i think i have it, but i want to make sure i send the right one on to csn.)

i almost gave up on the dice roller...
got too many 5's and 6's as the first number.
(i started numbering entries at 11 instead of 1, since you can't get a 0 on dice)

lisa of chasin' bunnies was the only one to guess our amazing vacation spot (but everyone who guessed got the extra entry) - we went to the french polynesia, tahiti and moorea to be exact. i'd so give up the internet any day to live there; josh on the other hand prefers civilization and walmart (how lame). ;-)

i'm still unpacking/re-settling at home (with a bunch of new goodies!), slowly working my way through my incredibly backlogged google reader and hopefully making it around to the new readers/commenters. yes, there will be wedding and h-moon pics to come! i mean it's not like i have running to talk about...

my lovely wedding shoes
i think my feet were photographed more than my face, haha


  1. That vacation spot looks AMAZING!

    Love the shoes - that's such a cute idea!

  2. Love the shoes! Love the amount of rest days! Your honeymoon spot looks amazing.

  3. Welcome back to the real world:) Good Lord, that picture of the ocean is amazing! I am glad that you had a lovely time on your honeymoon:)

    I am loving the shoes and hoping that you will post at least one picture from your wedding on your blog:)

  4. Welcome back!

    Pounds from paradise are soooo worth it. What a beautiful place!

  5. When I saw the first picture that you posted, I KNEW that I had guessed correctly.

    We were in Moorea for our 20th anniversary. Felt a bit old among the honeymooners, but what a beautiful, beautiful place. I want to go back!!!


    I want to hear/see so much more of your wedding and honeymoon. *off to stalk FB*

    Awesome shoes. I love it!

  7. LOVE the shoes!

    Welcome home, Mrs.!!

  8. welcome home and congrats!!! the honeymoon looks amazing.

  9. Welcome back to civilization! Cutest shoes ever! Can't wait to hear all about the big day!

    Congrats Jess!

  10. Great shoes! I can't believe your cubicle is in Tahiti!

  11. love, love, love the shoes! I don't blame you for feeling sad...what a beautiful vacation spot! I can't wait to see more pics!

  12. Welcome back! You were missed :)

    Those shoes were awesome. I look forward to hearing more about the wedding/honeymoon. The honeymoon picture makes me more and more anxious for our Hawaii vacation.

    Glad to see that you are catching up on your blog reading. I saw all your comments pop up in my inbox this morning. I'm glad that I could keep you busy at work.

  13. Welcome home, Lyndsay! I was just thinking about you yesterday. Congrats and those shoes are so funny! I hope you'll share some pictures!

  14. Oh wow, love the shoes! Do not feel guilty for a second about any pounds gained or for not running. Once in a lifetime event. :)

    Thanks for the giftcard! I'm so excited!

  15. Ok, I win the biggest a$$ on the planet award.

    I can not believe I somehow missed the "I am just heading off to get married" post. I figured we had not heard from you because of that and your fabulous honeymoon (and Oh.My. God. I can barely breathe from the weight of the green monster sitting on my chest! That wedding venue and vacay spot are GORGEOUS!) but I missed the opportunity to wish you well.

    I simply CAN NOT WAIT to see the pictures! Congratulations to you two very lucky people! The wedding and honeymoon are fun, but the marriage is BY FAR the best part!

  16. Wow! That first picture is absolutely beautiful!! What a wonderful place to stay for a honeymoon. Congrats!
    Cool shoes!

  17. You got married in running shoes? Ahh! I LOVE IT!!!

  18. I took photos at my cousins wedding, she also had sneakers (not as nice as yours)

    I admit, I took many photos of her shoes! haha

    I also have not been running so much. I broke the streak! :( It's that time of year, I guess.

  19. Ummm yes please post pictures from the honeymoon. They will make me insanely jealous and perhaps give me a nice kick in the ass to start planning my own fun trip somewhere.

  20. Oh I love the wedding shoes & can't wait to see more pictures.

    I'd be depressed too with the drastic change in scenery!!

  21. I LOVED that little intro with contrasting the pictures! what a difference!

    Well, congratulations on your wedding!! I completely missed it because I was off line for almost four weeks, but I see there haven't been any wedding picts put out yet...so I can't wait for that.

    And those are pretty shoes. I can't wait to run again. Still have three months until the baby's due. I suppose I could walk...ha! ha!! I know I say that like I run or something.

  22. I'm not sure I could return to work after a spot like that! Congrats again on tying the knot - no better way than with those amazing shoes!!! Welcome home and happy return to civilation, unfortunately :/

  23. Looks like early retirement!
    Welcome back Mrs.

  24. Great blog Lyndsay! and welcome back!
    Great shoes!!
    I will continue following you,

  25. welcome back mrs!!! i cried when i had to leave our honeymoon. its so sad when its over! yours looks absolutely amazing too. cant wait to see pics and hear all about the wedding!!!!

  26. Sorry about having to come back...sounds like an awesome honeymoon!

  27. Maybe hang up picture of last two Mondays in location of present and future Mondays.

    Probably won't help.

    And those shoes are so pretty, I wonder if you'll even wear them.

  28. Wowie, you're back! Nice vacation spot! I want to go...sigh!

    Your shoes are awesome too!

  29. Incredible Honeymoon! Greats trainers Lindsay we love you too!

  30. Ah- that looks like a great vacation!

  31. Looks great...how about if you stand really close to your calendar...does that help?

  32. Tahiti? Nice! That's one place on my list to visit. And I love the shoes!! How cute!

  33. Wow. Amazing photos. The worst part is the photos probably doesn't do the real thing justice!

    Love the shoes!

  34. Welcome back! Isn't it funny (or sad) how your work calendar has a picture of the beach? Great job getting whatever miles you could get in for the month!

  35. Those are pretty cool sneaks, i have to admit. Will be cool when you actually run in them, and someone notices what they say on the back, lol.
