keeping it weird

i am happy to report that september is off to a good start - i've wheezed my way through (modified) bootcamp classes and gone on a few (short) runs. i'm already ahead of august's mileage! (not that the bar was set high, ha). there is plenty of room for getting up early to run instead of snoozing until the last possible minute for work, but at least i can pretend it's getting cooler and less humid outside for evening runs.

over labor day weekend i drove up to asheville, nc to visit with the lovely amanda of runninghood (aka marathon mommy) and mr. runninghood who were visiting on a mini-vacation. the lexington ave arts and fun festival was going on, bringing out a unique mix of... characters. asheville hadn't gotten to them too much yet as amanda was still wearing a bra and shirt.

i would love to hear your thoughts as to what's going on here;
amanda spun a tale of suffering and oppression.


after browsing the festival tents we headed over to the laughing seed on wall street for a late lunch (yum) before eventually parting ways so that the 'hoods could get in their romantic sightseeing plans. (and house browsing, that's kind of romantic right?).

  1. I love love love Asheville. Maybe I should come there and we should visit it together?!?! How far is it from you? Seriously. I'm obsessed with the weirdness. And I'll continue on with my bra and shirt also. ;)

    Glad you are getting more workouts in!

  4. Looks to me like two homeless people got into the trash at Linens and Things. But maybe it's interpretive dance, hard to tell that from stoned ravings sometimes.

  5. Definitely a commentary on nunnery and/or women's role in society.

  11. Ahhhh Asheville... Can't even remember the last time I've been there. It really is a shame. I guess I missed Belle Chere again this year too and I love the Laughing See... I swear I will get a live back as soon as this triathlon season is finally over!

    Glad that you have a good September so far!
