A birthday date with Marshall Ulrich

"Oh gravity, thou art a heartless bitch." -Sheldon Cooper (The Big Bang Theory)

Yes, that quote is in honor of my birthday.  Tomorrow is the big 3-2!  Not exactly a milestone birthday.  In fact, I am really at the age when these things are not a cause for celebration.  Just another reminder that the heartless bitch is winning (just kidding)!  I was having a bit of the birthday blues (am I the only one who gets those?) when I happened upon something that pulled me right out of them!  Marshall Ulrich is going to host a 3 mile run and talk about his book tomorrow night!  Happy Birthday to me!

I have been talking a lot about Mr. Ulrich lately, and I swear I am not obsessed with him.  It is just that I have been reading his book, Running on Empty, and I have really been enjoying it.  So far I think it is inspirational, informative, and so interesting.  The man is a running legend.  Running with him is like doing cartwheels with Nadia Comaneci, riding bikes with Lance Armstrong, and bending it with Beckham.  If you got a chance to shoot baskets with Kareem Abdul Jabbar, you take it (Yes, that's right, I didn't say Michael Jordan.  I told you before, I am a Lakers fan).  So tomorrow, to celebrate my birthday, I am going to run with Marshall Ulrich and then listen to him talk about his run across America.  I am super excited and yes I am super dorky!!

I swear, not obsessed.  I've just written "I love Marshall" a few times on my Trapper Keeper.
I will bring my camera and definitely expect a blog post about this epic night.  


  1. The fact that you quoted Sheldon and mentioned "trapper keeper" in the same post make this one of my favorites ever. :)

    Have a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Every birthday is a good reason to celebrate your life and yourself. :) Enjoy Marshall!!!

  2. Marshall's a pretty cool guy! Hope you had a great time and happy birthday.

  3. I hope your birthday and your 'date' with MU were awesome! I wigged more about age when I hit 30. No witting at all when I hit 40. Go figure.

  4. I hope you had a great race and an amazing birthday!!!
