Fat Lip; Stellar Playlist.

I woke up with a fat lip staring at me in the mirror:

This could be for one of two reasons 1) I had a Snooki moment in a bar last night 2) I ran my body down. I would love to tell you that my fat lip resulted in option one but I’m lame and option two is really how this bad boy showed up in my life. Everyone’s body tells them that they are draining themselves differently and lucky for me I get Angelina Jolie lips when I do. Awesome!

This became the debate: do I run 18K and hope that my body doesn’t go into shock and make my lips fatter or do I rest and do 18K another day? I was very tempted to go with option two but the sun was shining and it was finally acceptable to wear shorts on a run. So, option one it was. I loaded up on protein bars and Gatorade and put a smile on my face:

You can hardly even tell my lip is fat when I smile! Win, win? I’d say! I actually had a stellar playlist during today’s run. I have a slight obsession with So You Think You Can Dance hence the reason why I am so excited that Cat Deeley is hosting the Royal Wedding on CNN on Friday morning. But I also fell in love with Stage Fright by Blake McGrath after watching his dance audition themed music video.

And then the rest of the playlist just made me declare that this my favourite running playlist of the moment. I know, big statement. Here’s how it went:

This run was actually a hard one. It was about 10 degrees hotter than I am use to and it was humid. Throughout my run I started to wish that I went out earlier but after seeing many runner friends, I came to the conclusion that you have to be prepared for whatever type of weather you will get on race day. And- I love the heat and sunshine so it was easy to stay out there. I decided that running for time was out the window and I was just running to complete 18K. I know that if it was 10 degrees colder, I would have had an amazing pace with this playlist. So, at 10K I re-fueled with some sport beans and just kept running like Forrest.

You might be wondering why my lip is actually fat. And it’s from renovations:

This dark colour was leaving and a new bright colour was coming in:

Mumsy started messing about and wrote my name on the wall. She only got as far as “Sio” and decided it could be a key segment on today’s blog. So Nancy Love, these pictures are for you. She thanked me by slacking off some more and doodling on the other wall:

I hope your Easter Sunday is filled with creme eggs the size of a mountain!.. (Or whatever candy is your weapon of choice!)

Happy Easter, friends!
And Sporting Life BFF’s– one week today! 🙂
