Thinking Out Loud Thursday #24

Another Thursday, another thinking out loud Thursday, linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons


#1 Beer Mile


I watched the World Beer Mile Championships last night via Flotrack live stream. I don’t think I have ever sat down to willingly watch people vomit, live on camera before. It was pretty impressive – being able to chug beer like that and then run a mile really quickly. The elite men’s race was almost done in less than 5 minutes. The women’s elite was completed in just over 6:00. Also, at the end you could see the runners vomiting their beer and the camera people taking pictures really, really close to them. Do you really want to be next to a person who is protectile vomiting?  I could never do a beer mile. I don’t even think I could drink four beers in 5 minutes…..


#2 2015 Planner

Last week I discussed my options for my 2015 planner. I ended up just buying a $6 monthly planner at Target. I really don’t need lots of space for daily appointments. All I really need is a small section to write down work related items. I also hope to use my iCal a bit more next year!


#3 Christmas Shopping

I haven’t even started yet


#4 Running in Snow

Yesterday it was not as cold as it has been, so I went for a run. It did snow a couple of cm’s, and that made for an interesting run! It was much harder! But, the general rule for myself for winter running is to get out there every time the weather is nice, especially before the sidewalks get iced over. Usually after a few snowfalls there is a good inch of ice on the sidewalks, which means I am very limited in where I can run. I’m hoping to have more steady treadmill access soon!


#5 Pretty!

Right now, the evening commute usually involves a beautiful sunset. I was lucky enough to be able to take this picture yesterday.



That is all I have today – time to go to my second school of the day! Yay supply teaching!

    I bought a yaktrax this year just for the snow. I’m bracing myself ):

    That sunset is gorgeous 🙂 I’m kind of jealous that it snows so much there, but then again I’m sure running in it is a pain. Sometimes we get a couple of good snow falls in Virginia, but it’s normally just cold and sunny!

      Don’t be jealous – snow can suck! It is pretty for about an hour, then it is awful. Unless you are on a skiing holiday, then yay snow!

    I love this new layout!! Love sunset! Sunset and sunrise (particularly sunrise) are my favorite times of the day 🙂

    Haha I always think really hard about how I’m going to schedule my following year. I used to waste so much money on planners, and they would never be quite right. I absolutely need a daily one for next year, but perhaps I’ll give iCal a go.
