1. As I have mentioned on here at least once before, I have started running recently. About a month ago, to be precise. And to be honest, I'm not a natural runner. By which I mean, even five weeks into my training, I'm not awesome. I can do it, but it's clear I wasn't born to run. And I'm not an attractive runner, to say the least. In fact, when I run my first race next month, I want no "after" pictures taken! I tend to turn a reddish purple color after a run, reminiscent of Violet Beauregarde after she ate the three-course dinner chewing gum even though Willy Wonka specifically told her not to.

Yesterday something kinda cool happened when I was on my run though. I was struggling. I only had another five minutes to go but I was losing stamina. Just then another runner ran by me, going to the other direction, and he reached out and side-fived me (like a high five, but on the side)! It made me feel like a legit runner, part of a club. It was the motivation I needed to finish up.
2. I'm just going to warn you right now - if you're a classy individual who is offended by bathroom talk, just skip to number 3. I'll meet you there.
I hung out with a guy friend last night and something weird happened as I was leaving. My friend was walking me out to my car and it was super dark outside. So, I asked him a simple question about turning the porch lights on and found out more than I'd bargained for.
me: why don't you turn the porch light on?
him: cause I don't want people to know I'm peeing.
me: how will they know you're in the bathroom from outside?
him: because I'm going to pee outside after you leave.
me: What!? Why?
him: because it's awesome.
me: What!? I don't understand! Why would you pee outside?
him: because peeing outside is better. Ask any guy! All guys love peeing outside! Put it on your thing! (Translation: put it on your blog.)
I'd be kinda surprised if I got a bunch of comments from guys confirming this, but I was curious if this is a thing.
3. I'm getting my hair done after work today and I'm thinking about mixing it up and getting a few inches cut off. I'm nervous about this though. I know hair grows, but it can be really traumatizing for a woman to lose too much length on her hair. I'm sure I'm not the only woman who's cried over a hair cut before. When I look back on my hair experience, I can think of many mistakes but these are my top four biggest regrets:
1. cutting it too short (cried)
2. accidentally dyeing it purple (had it fixed)
3. purposely dyeing it red (huge mistake, ended up having it stripped....both times)
4. short bangs (rarely a good idea)
Do you have any hair regrets?
PS, Happy birthday Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson! Call me!
