random thoughts-holiday weekend edition

  • if you haven’t seen The Devil Wears Prada yet, you simply must-so, so good. and i don’t say this about many movies still in theaters. great soundtrack too.
  • but it sold out mad fast on Friday and I couldn’t get tix…but I got in to see it, thanks to some quick thinking and scheming on my friend’s part. she got treated to some drinks afterwards as a thank you 🙂
  • and at a nice little wine bar on the UWS afterwards, in the hopes of there possibly being guys there…nope. one did talk to us, but turned out to be a freak…called my friend “evil” and me “tough and stubborn,” in the meantime, he seemed very taken with his text-message conversation with some chick the entire time. ugh. will it ever stop???
  • did the Arches Run with the Flyers on Saturday-a little over 8 miles that takes you “off the beaten path” of Central Park, and under all the arches and over all the bridges. And if you thought that the park drives are hilly, you discover hills that you never knew existed before (and prefer to keep that way!) however, this run is a great way to really see a lot of the history of Central Park. Flyers who are reading…if you haven’t done this run before, do it next year. it’s so worth it.
  • had a brief drinks date tonite with a guy i had met over memorial day weekend at some jewish singles thingie. we played phone/email tag for a month, he was traveling and stuff…hey, at least we were consistent with only seeing each other on holiday weekends. though it probably wasn’t a good idea to let so much time pass inbetween because…yep, you guessed it, nice guy, no chemistry. and i’m coming to the conclusion more and more lately that i can only date runners or other athletes…like those are the only types of guys who understand me and my goals…and the fact that running is such a big part of my life these days. (and i’m sure quite a few of you out there can relate to that…)

  1. yep, i know what you mean. you wait too long after an initial meeting and the date fizzles. or the person isn’t as gung-ho about running or fitness or – worse – would be an enabler of slothful habits. i haven’t enjoyed dating very much in the last couple of years; i’m just not finding people whose goals are aligned with mine; i’d rather be single if it comes to that.well, hey, a good-looking woman like you can’t stay single forever; sometime you’re bound to meet just the right mix of atheltic, cute, smart, and non-jackass.

  2. i think i am either seeing Prada today or tomorrow….more likely tomorrow!!!

  4. I read the book (devil wears prada) a long time ago–looking forward to seeing the movie version. The arches run sounds so cool–I would have done it had I been in town. Next year for sure!I know what you mean about the importance of a guy understanding the running obsession. I don’t think he has to be an athlete to get it, just understand that it is important to you and be able to support you. Good luck!

  5. Yep, I’m going to see Devil Wears Prada today=) Read the book so I’m sure the movie will be fun!As for the guys, I totally understand that. Running is a big part of my life right now and that has to be understood…Anyway, happy 4th=)

  6. brooklyn-thanks for the vote of confidence 🙂 (and right backatcha!) i know i’m not crazy thinking the way i do (can explain why there are so many flyer-flyer couples)junebug-very cool, hope you enjoy it!!morrissey-we pretty much went all over…was off the beaten path on both the east and west sides, on the north and south ends of the park…i’m sure the maps are on the Flyer site somewhere (with the exception of one part that doesnt show up on the maps because it’s a secret 🙂 )runner26 and uptown girl-i started the book but never finished it. now i need to 🙂
