Now that my Spring 2014 racing season is winding down, I thought I would transition my blog into some other topics until my training picks back up in July. In a recent survey
I did, I asked my blog readers what they like to read about on RGR blog and I was a little surprised to see that 32% of you said you like to read about Ginger Shenanigans. So this blog was inspired by that and a recent conversation I had with an acquaintance of mine who called me and the Hubbo "Interesting People". So clearly that means that you all want to know what I do in my free time, right?
Of course you do, keep reading.
The Hubbo and I Go on Dates!
Recently, the Hubbo and I went on a date to our local Drive-In Movie
here in Tulsa, the Admiral Twin. We saw Captain America!
I posted this picture on Instagram
The movie was good but the experience of hanging out in your car and watching a movie just makes it all the more fun! If you come to Tulsa in the summer time, you have to do this!
In December the Hubbo and I went ice skating on a day date. That's when I knew that I'd better stick to running because ice skating is hard you guys! I posted this pic on social media and bragged about my high quality skating skills and how I was sure
to get into the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi! Turns out, I didn't. Weird.
So Yeah, I'm pretty much ready to go pro!
I Go on Adventures!
A couple months ago the Hubbo and I woke up on a Sunday morning and decided to go on an Adventure! So we loaded up in the car, got gas, and headed south! We drove to Oklahoma City (about an hour and a half away) and went shopping and had lunch for the day before driving home. It's nothing too fancy but it was a lot of fun.
Sometimes we'll wake up and decide to go on a hike and picnic on Turkey Mountain here in Tulsa. One time, we woke up on a Saturday and decided to drive 3+ hours to Springfield, MO just to eat dinner at Lambert's, Home of the Throwed Rolls. So good!!! So bad for your diet!
I'm Addicted to Social Media
Hi, my name is Sarah and I'm addicted to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
True Story Y'all.
I'm a sucker for a Twitter Chat too. Mostly because the ones I participate in talk about running and racing. I do #RunChat on Sundays (Time Varies) and I do #BibChat on Tuesdays at 8:00pm CST.
What's a Twitter Chat? A Twitter Chat is an open conversation that uses a hashtag like #RunChat or #BibChat to allow people to follow along and participate in the discussion. They are fast, they are fun, they are informative, and they are a good way to connect with others on Twitter who share your interests.
I Go Bowling with Friends
Recently my friend celebrated a birthday and we went downtown to go bowling at The Dust Bowl. I'm not great at bowling but I always have a blast when I go. I consider it a HUGE success if I break 100. If I am able to get even one strike I start to consider going Pro! Not even joking! :)
I Go To Concerts
Yes, even in Oklahoma we have big name concerts that come through. I know that most people consider Oklahoma as "fly over country" but there are a lot of cool things to do here! I've seen Lady Gaga, Black-Eyed Peas, Miley Cyrus, Jason Mraz, Maroon 5, One Republic, The Band Perry, Miranda Lambert, and Katy Perry in concert here in Tulsa. This picture is from the Miley concert. She's riding a hot dog because of course she would ride a flying hot dog!
Don't Judge Me!
That concert made me feel old.
I Buy Shoes in Bulk
And apparently I like flats!
Thanks to Payless I got all these for less than $100. I don't spend much on my casual shoes so I can justify spending $150 on my running shoes.
So what do you like to do for fun besides running and racing?
