Benjamin Franklin was a hero
28 hours after the diva otherwise known as Irene hit we finally have power! They are saying the Cape may not have power until Saturday. Yes yes, Saturday. Be back later, going to catch up on Big Brother [oh you over there stop that judgey face, Jeff is a stud.] This commences and concludes the Hurricane Irene 2011 liveblog.

Ah! Thank you thank you thank you! To one of my first internet friends: You win the award for finding top 5 most embarrassing pictures of me. It is only a (hopefully short) matter of time before we can change that tag to ‘because I couldn’t find any sober pictures of us together’. I heart you!

The farthest organized race I had ever run was a 5k this past New Year’s and my longest run during training was 6 miles … in June (unprepared to the max).
