have you ever sold anything on craigslist? i've been purging my house of random things i don't use and tried my luck with craig. a few things were quickly snagged, leaving me to think if you don't hear anything within a couple days of posting, chances are no one wants your crap.
anyway what i like to do sometimes is google the people who email me about buying my stuff. is this normal? don't answer that.
one lady recently relocated from michigan, but before that her and her husband were expats overseas. i learned where one guy works (thanks to linkedin), and then saw that he relisted my stuff on ebay. i was irritated about that for 2 seconds but i got over it, especially when the auction ended and i saw he made about $9.90 in profit (i estimated shipping). an almost-buyer had an atrocious resume on linkedin. i don't know how far working in the clerical "feild" and aspirations to own a "resterant" will get you. keeping things professional, she also linked to her myspace page. we've already been over the coolness that is myspace, except for kovas who was never quite cool enough.
so now that you're all weirded out and don't want to be friends anymore...***
wednesday after work i was not quite in the mood to run but i knew i needed to do my 30-minutes; i decided to do a leg/weights workout. non-stop squats, lunges, deadlifts, leg raises, etc makes for one sore tush the next day. i moved from one exercise into the next without taking a break to maximize my time, but if i did stop for a breather/some water i made sure to pause the timer. i kept it honest 'cause my butt needs the burn anyway.
thursday's run wasn't great but it wasn't bad either. my chest was a little tight the whole time, common in cooler temps with my e.i.a, but it was only about 70. maybe it was the pollen. scratch all that, the run-stats were good, it just didn't feel good during the run.
thursday (10/14) pm run: 7.25 miles, 1:05:13 (avg pace 8:59, i think i'm back again!), 70*
***disclaimer: i am not a serial-anything. i am a nice person who gets bored and googles, that's all. it is not my fault we all have an abundant "online presence" these days. if you google me you get a bunch of race results, this blog, my linkedin, me being featured in runner's world, college rowing news, a couple wedding-related things, various twitter connections and random news about lindsay lohan. what, you don't google yourself?
