2012, maybe?

hot off the presses!

let dj ctk's latest beat carry your dancing running feet into the new year and enjoy this year's "year in review".

[dedicated to b.o.b, as this was her favorite hit of 2012]

now it's the end of the year
somebody get me a beer
i have no reason to cheer
my mileage is so low

i tried elimination
m&m's, my temptation
it was a big frustration
lost all my cardio

your posts were crowin'
long runs, pr's growin'
meanwhile i'm plateauin'
so i tried eating paleo

hey, i don't know you
and this is crazy,
but here's my number,
so track me, maybe?

i ran some 5k's
as an "ali"
and as a diva
brought home a trophy

hey, i went a year,
and it was crazy,
without m&m's,
i survived, maybe?

and all the other boys,
try to chase me,
in my bikini,
some sunscreen, maybe?

i went on meds for my skin
went for a ride on my schwinn
dyed wedding dress in a tin
made my own pizza dough

running may have felt betrayed
when i drank all the kool-aid
i didn't know i'd be swayed
by other cardio

your posts were crowin'
long runs, pr's growin'
meanwhile i'm plateauin'
so i tried eating paleo

hey, now i crossfit
and this is crazy,
i'll double under
please no more burpees

still hard to run fast,
like a grand prix
but i do pullups
in a big tree

here's to the new year,
and lots of running,
a fall marathon
new pr, maybe?

and all my other goals,
i'll chase after,
achieve a muscle up,
and six-pack, maybe?
