Ridiculously Debonair

Last night my friend Jasmyn had her annual Christmas party. The theme was "Semi-Formal with a Winter Twist." I'm on the left in the photo below, and while I'm not sure what my winter twist was, I'm pretty sure my tweed jacket was the shit! My friend Luke on the right is sporting formal attire on the top, and candy cane pajamas on the bottom. Formal + Pajamas = Semi-formal. Get it?

Helpful Tip: If you want to have a fun party, then it's always best to act like children.
This is why, after some grown-up socializing, we decided to engage in obstacle course races.

Race Description:
Sprint around the ottoman 3 times, proceed to the kitchen where you have to eat a cookie and then take a small shooter (Jager, Peach Schnapps, Cranberry juice), run up the stairs where an Otter Pop is waiting for your consumption, chow down the chunk of ice, bust out a freak nasty move on the wooden rail, run back down the stairs, and then lastly guess a mad gab clue to stop the timer.

I didn't win. Apparently my strength is not in chomping through Otter Pops, as my teeth are a bit cold sensitive. Stupid teeth!

In terms of running news, I ran 6 miles this morning. It was a route that I've run a ton of times and always time myself. I ran my slowest time EVER this morning. BUT... my fastest time ever running it with a hangover! Go un-Zen Runner!


  1. Nice. Love the semi-formal gettup. Pretty snazzy. Hangover runs and races are a bitch, but the fact that it lowers your expectations is sometimes a bonus. I always end up doing better than I think I will. So I always win in the end.

  2. I hate running with a hangover! I always puke! Outfits are cute :D

  3. Aw, I'm sorry Otter Pops weren't your forté!

  4. Great post...Keep it up!

  5. I honestly stopped reading at "Jager and Peach Schnapps"... GROSSSSSS!" Okay now I'll read the rest of the post :) And I do think your suit is the shit.

  6. You are better than me. I only managed 1.8 miles after too much beer the night before. (Hey..what is a Beer Cart Girl to do?)

    The party sounds great. Maybe train for that next obstacle course.
