I am happy to report that Mr The Rake and I lived happily ever after. Until he came home and I made him go shopping.
I also failed my domestic duties for the day and didn’t fold the washing. He can fold his own.
Like a Rake
- Side note, and I can’t believe I never thought of this, but to clear up some confusion, Mr The Rake and I aren’t married. Mr The Rake is his name because:
1. He’s a law-talking guy, and Rake is an Australian TV show about a lawyer (and cocaine)
2. His real surname is Scottish, and comes from ‘son of the Rakish man’
3. I felt like giving him two titles – ‘Mr’ makes him sound masculine and ‘The’ makes him a noun
Spibelt and Gu Review!
You know how much I was looking forward to my Spibelt right?! It came yesterday, and it is oh so pretty.
I wore it for my 10km run today, and I can’t believe how comfortable it is. Totally worth the money.
Even better is that this baby has little elastics for me to hold my gels securely, and grab them as I run (no, you do not need gels for a 10km. Nor do you need a camelbak. Next time I see you in my 10km race, Mr Camelbak, I will hunt you down in my Get Chicking Shirt. Actually, one gel is acceptable for a 10km race. But that’s all I’ll allow >:-S)
In conclusion, it’s awesome.
The Gus, on the other hand, are not. I was going to do a proper Gu review, and then I realised that every runner/blogger on the interwebs has done it, so I’ll spare you. But let me know if you have any questions
All gels are gross. Fact.
Gu is better than most. The berry was horrendous, and the chocolate would have been good, had my gag reflexes not completely freaked out about the idea of eating something warm and chocolatey in the middle of a run – body says no!
Totally worth it though – there is no way I could get through my long runs without them.
See ya winter
I got home from my run and got dressed… in shorts!
Yep, sorry US – we’ve reclaimed summer.
Unfortunately, I’ve been inside studying. But my lunch-time run was heaven – I had to wear sunscreen!
Liz from lizforaday.com tagged me in another blog award. Thanks Liz! This online tagging business is cheesy and gorgeous. I love it every time. I’ll do my response tomorrow.
Crazy name origins – what does your name mean, and where does it come from?
Have you done you chores today?
Ever used a spibelt or gels?
