Went to see Pink Martini and the Von Trapps (yes, part of that Von Trapp family) at Symphony Center with my bestie Scott. I regretted our cheap seats during the finale, when audience members could join a congo line that went up on stage while Pink Martini performed Brazil.

Took off my clothes in public! Obviously, this was early in our number. These are stills from the video. If you want to see the video (my mom called it “darling”), shoot me an email and if I like you, I’ll send you the link. (Sorry, anonymous lurkers.) (Also fake eyelash occasion #2.)

New specs.


Ran my third Shamrock Shuffle! Or as my dad explained it, “a giant fun run followed by beer drinking.” He gets it.

I am officially a Divvy member. I dig it. Except when the docking station is full.

Checking in on my 2014 goals:

Weekly Strength Workouts: I did 5! Over achiever!

Bi-weekly Fun Workouts: Four official burlesque classes and two extra burlesque practices with the ladies with whom I performed.

Read 12 Books: I read Second Chance by Jane Greene. Total chick lit. Just something to keep me off Facebook during my commute.

Host Something Once a Month: Clothing swap.

Volunteer: Attended mentor training for the American Cancer Society, and also helped (wo)man their booth during the Shamrock Shuffle expo. I’m also dilligently planning some fundraising events, but as always, you can buy an I Run With Fast Women shirt or you can just make a donation on my behalf.

  1. You know I want to see the vid but I will follow the rules and send an email.

    Is it just me or does it seem like the Oscars were SOOOOO far away?!?!

  2. Another fab month in the books for you! I always love the variety of things you see and do 🙂 an your dad nailed the spirit of the shamrock spot on.

  3. What a fun month for you! I totally want to see your burlesque video. I love that you performed!

    And one of these days I’ll have to do the Shamrock Shuffle. You all made it look so fun!
