Earlier today while out for a run with Mr. WJTWT, I joked that perhaps on Tuesdays, following my Monday Weekly Mileage post, I could follow it up with a Celebrity Sightings Report.
That is a joke. However, now that I live in Los Angeles, very much possible. In actuality, it took my 7 weeks to see a celebrity for the first time and it wasn’t someone I would recognize without being told who it was. We’ve turned it into a game of sorts and the rules are simple. I have to recognize them as a celebrity for the sighting to count. (Sorry, Dave Grohl. Even though I like both the Foo Fighters and Nirvana, I would never have known it was you when you were out with your daughter buying hamburgers!)
Today I had my first real celebrity sighting though and it’s actually quite ironic for two reasons. While running the same canyon trail as last week, we passed Carrie Brownstein, of Portlandia fame, walking her dogs. (And I totally made eye contact with her!)
The two reasons I thought it was ironic though is that 1. even though she doesn’t live in Portland, I would have figured the odds of running into her there, before we moved, would have been higher than in Studio City, CA. on a random Tuesday morning and 2. because I recently, less than two weeks ago, in fact, shared a Portlandia video where they spoof the Portland Marathon.
I’m truly not the starstruck type and I would never approach someone one or gush over them unless it was in an appropriate setting and all. Since Mr. WJTWT has worked in the film industry for a number of years, the whole “celebrity” thing just doesn’t really do anything for me but it’s still fun to catch a glimpse of someone that is well recognized for their work.
In other news, with summer right around the corner, now would be a good time to get your hydration game strategy in order. So the timing of Nuun offering 25% off orders now until May 24th is perfect! You can stock up and be ready for whatever summer adventures you have planned!
Speaking of adventures… tomorrow morning, if all goes according to plan (meaning I don’t chicken out), I’m going to attend my first ever November Project workout. Eek! I’ve been a fan of the grassroots movement since I first heard about it but wasn’t in a locale where it was offered. Until now. And they meet about 10 minutes from where I live so I don’t really have an excuse… except the chickening out thing which is why I’m sharing this. Accountability, baby. As they say, “just show up.” So I’m going to. I’ll report back on my findings!
