I’m writing you all from West Palm Beach, Florida. Got in yesterday. Had a few crazy first day teaching moments probably due to the lack of sleep the night before (a record low 23mins). Nothing as bad as walking in to class without pants, but let’s just say, a few west palm kids are really confused about the meanings of a few words courtesy of yours truly. Oops!
So I gotta make this short because I am in a hotel that thinks free wireless Internet is just a little too much customer service. I could pay, but I don’t like paying for things I can steal for free. Thus, I’ll deal with posting on my phone, sans all the pretty pictures.
Thanks to all your encouraging words, about my loserville run, I got up and ran today at 7:30am. Continue reading
If you looked up shame in the dictionary, you would find a picture of me with my lip poked out, and a caption that reads “Bgirl875′s run week”.
Today I got out for my, dare I say it, FIRST run of the week. Yep, it sucks I know. I have been super swamped getting work out of the way to be away for 13 days starting on Monday. So in the mornings, I could run. However, going to sleep every night at 3am, just doesn’t make for a happy 6:30am runner. I did workout on Tuesday with my BFF and although it was more like a chat fest than a workout, it counted. But today, I don’t know if I can even count whatever the hell that was that I was doing as running. Continue reading
We all know too well the story of Bgirl875′s addiction to the treadmill, and how she made up every excuse in the book to stay comfortable. But most importantly, how much she LOVED running outdoors and now vows, barring injury or excessive force, to never get on that damned thing again.
I assume there are other runners in the same predicament I was only a short while ago, so I wanted to share an article posted in Runner’s World today here Continue reading
Hi Blog Buds meet ANGEL STONE.
Angel is a lot of things that you can read about here but most importantly she is my favorite personal trainer/fitness goddess and the other person outside of RRBA I call my She-Ro.
If you checked out my post two weeks ago about Beating the Competition, you’ve already got a little glimpse of her hilarious and educational blog Fit & Hungry. If you haven’t go check it out now, and I’ll wait. OK, you back? Funny, huh?
Well, apparently, my comments on her ridiculously sick body flattered her enough to commit to letting me interview her on my blog. Continue reading
So there’s this really AWFUL hill on my run route. I hate this hill, it sucks pig butt and goat balls both at the same time. Every time I go out, I feel it looking up at me laughing.
In my head, it feels like I’m running up this:
In reality, it is not that bad. But it is about 600m of nice sized incline and it sits 3 miles into my run. So needless to say, at about 3 miles, I’m already talking my legs out of walking AND the last thing I need is some damned hill laughing at me.
Today, was a good day. I woke up, feeling very brave. I walked up to my running group said hello and you won’t believe this but Continue reading
When I’m bored, I like to look at the search terms that people have used to find my blog. After reading these, I figure I better find another past time. If you happened to find my blog using any of these terms, I’m scared! But thanks for stopping in, I think =/
black girl shake that ass–Hahaha! Sometimes I do. So you’re in the right place.
a black giel doin work in the butt–So sorry to disappoint, and why is my blog coming up under this? And girl is not spelled with an “e.”
black girl thumbs –Your Guess is as good as mine?!?
junk in the trunk women of indoor track–I don’t know, but I’m tempted to search it.
big booty black girl–of course! You found me. LOL!
fishing for girls–At least they’re honest
scared blackgirls eatiing shit–Please tell me this is a figure of speech…ewwww!
epic fail daughter black–ummmm, is having a black daughter really an epic fail? If so, oops, I failed! =P
black booty running–That’s HOT!!!
black girl carwash–Ooh, I wanna play!
pimples sweat legs running–This is my life in four words and my new quote for the week =}
My reader are really strange and slightly perverted, and sort of make me happy I’m doing an anonymous blog. But hey, beggars can’t be choosers.
An anonymous black girl who appreciates all of her readers, even the crazy sick perverted nasty thoughtful ones…
Ps, don’t know why but I feel the need to file this under motivation =P
This is super late but in my defense, I couldn’t find a place to post this comment/feedback on the website. So instead I’m posting here. Maybe someone for Runner’s Training Guide will Google “Running black girls” and come across this post to get some insight/feedback on their training guide. If not, then maybe you guys know someone looking for a C25k program that might benefit from the review.
So without further adieu…
MY VERY FIRST
So in two weeks I’m heading south for work in West Palm Beach, FL. Two whole weeks in the florida sun!
In preparation for my trip, I am not only purchasing bathing suits, sunscreen and shorts. But also, trying to find the best places to run because it is my dream to run on the beach in a sexy red bathing suit just like a hot Baywatch girl (sans heavy lifeguarding equipment).
Disclaimer: I really don't look like this in my bathing suit
Anyway, I know nothing about West Palm Beach really, except that sadly it’s very far from most of my Florida blog buddies. So if anyone has suggestions for places to run, I’ll take them.
And HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It’s happening. I’m becoming addicted. Disclaimer: I don’t know if this is due to an actual love of running or a fear that I will give it up if I skip runs. Either way, I think I am addicted and might need to go to Runners Anonymous soon. If I do, here is my opening speech.
Hello my name is Bgirl875 and I’m a runaholic.
I’ve been running for 9 weeks now. At first it was just a passing goal. I wanted to figure out if my body could actually do it. The more I did it, the more I felt I wanted to do it. I quickly became obsessed and sought out other runners that would encourage my habit. Some even gave me tips on becoming better at it (shame on you ladies!!!) And thus, I wanted to do it more and more, and faster and faster. Continue reading
I wanted to share this hilarious but insightful post on beating your competition. Not saying that I am bitter about being passed by a 70-year-old or anything, but I’d like to know how to pass more people. Simply because, I enjoy singing MJ’s I’m Bad when I do.
I think it offers some great advice, though I am slightly surprised that the following did NOT make the list:
-Kicking people in the back of the shins
-Making siren sounds in hopes everyone in front of you will pull to the side
-Wearing Heelys Skate Shoes to your race
Anywho…unless you are planning to race me anytime in the future, take a look Fit & Hungry’s 8 Ways to Win a Race and Fool Your Competition. The blog name is pure brilliance and I have been secretly coveting the owner’s ridiculously fit body for years.
Enjoy! And if you comment, please tell Ms. Stone that Bgirl875 thinks her right lattisimus dorsi is HOT!
