Did I watch Girls Just Want to Have Fun while I ran ten miles on Saturday? Yes I did. Did it have a crazy amount of 80s stereotypes in the first 15 minutes? Another yes. Was it pure awesome entertainment? Another big YES. I might have to make classic 80s movies a long run staple.
Seriously, how can you resist a movie with these lines in it:
Velcro. Next to the Walkman and Tab it is the coolest invention of the 20th Century!
Janey: Do you have a date or something?
Lynne: No I wish, I just know I must be horny.
He's a boy and he's alive, what's there to hate?
Whenever I'm in a room with a guy, no matter who it is - a date my dentist, anybody - I think, 'If we were the last two people on Earth, would I puke if he kissed me?'
What is your favorite 80s movie? And it doesn't matter if you weren't born until the late 80s or even the 90s, you can't tell me you haven't seen The Breakfast Club, Say Anything, Ferris Bueller's Day Off or Better Off Dead. And if you can, it's time to hit the video store or update your Netflix queue because you are missing out.
Now here are some more answers to your questions...

Did you always love Millie as much as you do now? At first, Millie was just a necessary evil. Even with a jogging stroller, I couldn't run with my girls when it was too cold or too hot. So I got a treadmill. I grew to like it, and then I fell in love. My Letter To My Treadmill post was really the turning point.
Are you as much fun in real life as you seem on your blog? Apparently I have you fooled.
How do you keep that love for the TM going? Can you please share some of it? :) My ten mile run on Saturday was a reminder of why the treadmill is so great. I watched an entire movie while running, made four trips to the potty (15 feet away), and turned the A/C down so it was blowing on me almost the entire run. What isn't there to love?
What's your favorite thing to do with your girls? My favorite thing with my girls is bedtime. And not because it's bedtime. But because it is my guaranteed one-on-one time with my girls every day. They are quiet and calm and snuggly. First I read, rock and sing with my Bean. Then it's The Princess's turn, only we read, sing and then I snuggle her in her bed while she talks about the random things from her day. When Bean was born, we were going to have them share a room, but Bean is a light sleeper and The Princess talks in her sleep (a lot), so that wasn't going to work. We might reconsider it as they get older, but then bedtime would be a group activity and I would really miss that mom and me time.
Favorite summer time activity? Seven Peaks water park has been one of our favorite activities this year because the girls are finally old enough to enjoy it! I also love pushing my girls on the swings in the backyard, which happens almost every day. It is so fun to listen to their little thoughts and conversations while they swing.
Can we hang out soon? I see another trip to Yogurtland in my near future. But we might want to sit outside this time so we can hear each other.

Favorite trashy useless tv show (if you have one) and/or, what's your guilty pleasure? Bethenney Ever After is my guilty pleasure show, although I only watch about 10-15 minutes at a time while I roll or ice my muscles. And my guilty pleasure? Reading running blogs. I usually should be doing something else, but I just can't resist.

What is your favorite distance to run? 13.1 Probably good since I'll have finished at least five by the end of the year.
How do you stay so stinking skinny and so cute? I don't think of myself as skinny. And I honestly would be a lot heavier if I didn't run. I gained 25+ pounds in college, and I'm sure that number would have continued to climb if I hadn't done something about it.
What is your favorite restaurant? I tried to pick one, but I couldn't do it. I love good Italian or Mexican (not much of that around here). Carrabbas is yummy. And I have Cafe Rio almost once a week, so that says something. I love food too much to play favorites though.
Favorite post run fuel? Chocolate milk!!
