Sad Sad Sad

A sure way to ruin my Sunday would be to tell me Billy Mays is dead. Oh wait...

Love love love, that guy!

A few details are coming out on TMZ about him being hit in the head while landing on a US Air flight after a tire blew out. Seems it could have been a concussion and then he went to sleep, but who knows. So so sad! We're huge PitchMen fans in this house, not to mention HUGE Billy Mays fans! Its just tragic!

A tough week in the public eye indeed!

I would say my favorite Billy Mays clip is The Awesome Auger so freaking funny! We're also very proud OxiClean users in this house!

Sad day at Chez Jones! It's all you now Sully!

Happy Father's Day Dad!!!

I wish I could have been in Wisconsin today to play a round of golf with my father!

I love this picture, my dad is picking on me for always tilting my head when I take pictures!
And our father daughter dance!
I love you lots!!!

A few last thoughts...

So the big run is tomorrow! And I am pretty nervous, I know i'll do well but still the nerves are there. MG said he'll take some pictures so I can post them tomorrow, you'll all enjoy the matchy matchy outfit I have planned to run in. Oh also have I told you yet that it is suppose to POUR rain the entire day. The upside is I love running in rain the down side is we're throwing a "Bunker Hill Day par-tay" after the race and before/during/after the parade. (Rolling cooler, check!). So we may not be able to extend the "BHDP" onto the deck, but we'll figure it out! I'll be happy to have the race out of the way! (And start training for my next one!)

I also have to tweak my running mix, not enough "jazzy" songs in the beginning. I need to add some more hip hop and switch the flow.

Had drinks with work people yesterday, it cracks me up when they tell me how they perceive me. I come off as: buttoned up and that I don't have any fun. HA, pretty sure that's an inaccurate statement. Also gave my boss the ins and outs on blogging and twittering. He knew about my blog, but explained the "tweet up" and he thought I was crazy. I also told him that I have referred to him as Rob Lowe on twitter, he was flattered. ha!

It feels good to be blogging again, highlight of my day reading your comments!

Also for those of you who have emailed me about the BostonTweet Widget, head on over to BostonTweet and get one for yourself! I've been surprised by the number of emails I've gotten around it, happy you guys like it! The guy behind BostonTweet is pretty cool himself! 

Thanks for all of your support, i'll make Team Kimba proud with a good showing tomorrow! OH and Fave Couple are running it also, good luck A & B!!!! MG is watching Baby Will, so good luck to him too!

I am about to put together the "final final" Team Kimba running mix! I want to finish it tonight so I can give it a test "run" tomorrow during my final mini run. Not sure about some of you, but I am a huge fan of song placement. Not only do I love to have great songs to motivate me but how the songs are aligned is key for long runs!

Any suggestions?!

Not the biggest fan of blogging from my iPhone. But am lucky to have it!

Last "Big" Run before Sunday...

Which I waited until after work to complete as I knew it would be raining/misting and I LOVE running in the rain! And that it was a consent mist, more like it was spitting on you, I ended up running twice what I was suppose to, but who's counting! (Be careful on wet brick, I almost bit it while running around Kendall and MIT, but saved myself before I had a issue on my hand!)

This past weekend was Sara's big bach party, it was so much fun and I'm waiting to get pictures from the other girls to upload and show you just how freaking cute she was! 

A busy week and weekend ahead, ahhh...summer is in full swing! Happy to be staying in the City this weekend, will be able to give a little TLC to my blog! Also I nixed the idea of putting "Follow @KimbaKimba" on the back of my running shirt. Funny but not sure the audience would get it! Though i'm a little bummed my "TEAM ATK" shirts haven't arrived! Next race!

I'm back...slowly...but back!

About Time ATK & Tweets

After some time off, I'm finally ready to get myself back into the blogging world! 

A big part of my time has been taking up by this thing called "running"! I have been training for my first road race and am happy to report the race is this weekend! It was reported one of the hardest races in it's class for official certified races in the US. Good job Kimba, way to pick em'! 

Last Thursday I attended my first TweeUp at the Rattlesnake in Boston, I would hope all of you would know what a "TweetUp" is by now, but if you're not on Twitter you may not so it's exactly what it sounds like. A Twitter Meet Up, and it was a great time. I will tell you I stuck out more then you could imagine. When you're in a room (or in this case a roof, "roofup") with a group of people who have been ahead of the technology curve most of the blogs they follow are not preppy blogs! Which was great for me as I was able to talk to them about a whole other world in the blogsphere

Long story short I was of course nervous going as I didn't know anyone there (well one gal!) and 99% of the people I follow are my preppy blog friends, so I was about to walk into a room (roof) and just have to put myself out there and it was fabulous! I met a bunch of great people and finally got the push to do something different with my blog, and who knows what else! I'm happy I went and at the end of the day it shows how truly small of a world it is and how great it can be when many different interest come together through something we all love! Twitter!

Check out my sassy new BostonTweet Widget on my sidebar (as if i needed to point it out) if you're in Boston you should stop on over and add it to your site! You know me I don't use the word sassy unless I truly mean it! 

I am HAPPY to be back back back!!!
