Happy Monday

by Meghann on April 14, 2014

Oh, man, am I tired. What an incredible exhausting week of work. Thanks for bearing with me as I got through the first race of the season. It’s our largest event (and a local one!) so it always requires a lot of dedication during race week.

After a week’s worth of early mornings and late nights, it was nice to put my running shoes on and just run this morning. I’ve been doing a lot of watch-less runs lately, which really allows me to zone out and just enjoy the run. When your head is already going a million miles a minute, it’s nice not to think about pace, splits, or timing. It’s all about the run, simple as that.

I also finished the new Veronica Mars audiobook on my run.


First of all, LOVE that the audiobook was read by Kristen Bell. She definitely brought the book to life and made it feel like it could easily be just another episode of Veronica Mars (if the show were to resurrect itself in 2014).

The book itself was also great. The story picks up were the movie left off, with Veronica settling back into Neptune in her new role as a P.I. The story does not add much to move the plot forward in the “Veronica and Logan” love story, but it still brings together all of your favorite Veronica Mars characters as they work together, just as they did ten years earlier, to solve the mystery of two missing spring breakers in Neptune.

I found myself unable to put the iPod down and can not recommend it enough to die hard Veronica Mars fans. I’m hoping Rob Thomas will continue with the series, as I’m already looking forward to the next book!

In other random tidbits of news…

  • CONGRATS to my little brother Ben for rocking Ironman Florida 70.3 in Haines City yesterday!!
  • Does anyone watch The Mindy Project?! Why the heck did they bring Danny and Mindy together just to pull them apart so quickly? Not cool!
  • My house is a mess.
  • I need to start bringing my own snacks when working. I failed miserably at that last week.

I felt the same way about The Mindy Project Meghann, but then I read this:

It will make you feel a little better about things πŸ™‚

Agreed about Mindy and Danny- that was just a tease!!! Maybe they’ll actually put them back together in an episode or two? I really want them together though.

I think The Mindy Project is just trying to avoid “The New Girl curse” – that show went way downhill after Jess & Nick got together, even though it was what we’d all been hoping for! I’m sure Mindy and Danny will end up back together, it just might take a few more seasons πŸ˜‰

I am right there with you girl! I had so many projects to do this weekend and none of them got done. It was just too beautiful to not be outside right??

I agree about the Mindy Show!! and then Nick & Jess the same night (although I don’t care as much about them anymore! lol). Okay that article that Meghan posted made me feel better. And yes, I think there could be good reason for the breakup.

I completely agree about the Mindy & Danny dating thing!
I think it was just a way to keep viewers hooked while they were on hiatus!

I STILL have not seen the Veronica Mars movie! I’m dying! I almost bought the book last weekend but didn’t do that either. Ugh. I’m a horrible fan.

Is the Veronica Mars book available through I have a few credits and could totally use one on that! Right now I’m listening to “Gone Girl” – so good, but SUPER long for my first audiobook ever.

10 Meghann April 21, 2014 at 7:28 am

Yep! That’s where I got it.

Hey Meghann! I will have to listen to the Veronica Mars book – I am a huge fan. I have already watched the movie twice —- soooo happy Logan and Veronica ended up together!
Are you going to be at the Seattle Iron Girl this year?

I’m with you on the Mindy Project. I don’t get it! Glad that you survived your first race πŸ™‚

I am hearing a lot about listening to audiobooks, that is pretty cool. I cant really imagine how it would work, but maybe it is one of those “dont knock it till you try it ” kind of things! I cannot stand the mindy project so I am afraid I have nothing to contribute there πŸ˜› Hopefully this week is less crazy for you!
