WOW!!! That's super duper impressive girl! Have your cake!

AKA Alice said...

BOO YAH! BABY!

That's just impressive (and I know you teach full time, which makes it even more so).

Naps = good

isela said...

That is awesome! Great work. Now, you take the Boo Yah and I'll take the nap :) and cake, hehehe.

Stef said...

BOO YAH!

Not that I'm surprised though. Way to GET IT DONE with consistency girlfriend!

This is why you are absolutely divine and unstoppable. Cannot WAIT to watch you cross the line at CDA!!!!!

Lisa Slow-n-Steady said...

Oh yeah! That's the way to get it done!!

Willie said...

Way to fucking go! (see I'm working on the swearing)

What that doesn't show is the teenage bullshit you've also endured during the month. We haven't heard much about those "cherubs" lately but I can't believe they've gotten any better. In some sick way I miss "RBR's Adventures in Teenage Hormone Land"

RYC: Don't worry, you can still kick my ass in the pool I'm sure. There is no way I could have swam a mile faster than you. I must have messed up the timing. It's impossible for me to explain how badly I SUCK at swimming. The English language doesn't have the words for it.

Holy crap! Rock on! Eat cake. Take a nap. Pat yourself on the back. And know that you are inspiring me.

Kolla said...

Run Bitch Run fast becoming one of my favorite blogs! Thanks for the laughs, the goofyness, the ongoing battles with the couch.
Sufficiently inspired, I now hit the road for a hearty superbowl-brick :)

Calyx Meredith said...

BOO YAH and then some!! 40 workouts in 31 days? Yeah, you're a rock star. And a hardcore chica to boot! Keep it up and IMCDA is in the bag.

ShirleyPerly said...

Hellya, I'll give you a BOOYAH!!

Great consistency, which I think is key (and something I need to work on as well, come to think of it).

You've earned both cake and a nap in my book :-)

Bootchez said...

Boo Yah, cake, nap AND pie!

Southbay Girl said...

Red Velvet cake!!!! YUMMY!

Diana said...

BOO YAH!!
I thought I had a good month with 50+ miles running and 30 biking! I bow to the ground.....screw the cake, down a box of Little Debbie Swiss Cake Rolls! They taste better!

Heather said...

hey zeus!

You are a champ... I just run and strength train, I don't know how you fit swimming and biking in the mix.

It was like national pie day about a week or so ago, I thought of you!

Go to sleep now, REST.

Calyx Meredith said...

I had to come back to say you are personally responsible for motivating me into working out every day this week! That 40 workouts in 31 days statistic you posted keeps ringing in my head! (I typed "wringing" the first time around ha ha.) I want to be like RBR!

AND I keep thinking of you because blogger is cracking me up with the verification words - so far I've gotten "oodled" "smoozark" and "froufark"! Knew you'd get a kick out of them.

IronSnoopy said...

BOO YAH!

I raise my fork of cake in your general direction.

Nice, you're doing it. :)

Roisin said...

I am humbled! Damn...you GO!!!!

Denise said...

I LOVE your animal family! Are they really all yours? I have 2 black kitties...I'm a sucker for them. I would have a ton more if the husband wouldn't kill me!

Alisa said...

I'm catching up on your prior posts! One word---WOW! What an awesome month!

Penny said...

Boy, you have me beat! I run as often as I can, but my bad back gives me heck. Before I can run I need to exercise on my teeter sport inversion therapy table for about 10 minutes.
