On I went, out of the wood, passing the man leading without knowing I was going to do so. Flip-flap, flip-flap, jog-trot, jog-trot, curnchslap-crunchslap, across the middle of a broad field again, rhythmically running in my greyhound effortless fashion, knowing I had won the race though it wasn't half over, won it if I wanted it, could go on for ten or fifteen or twenty miles if I had to and drop dead at the finish of it, which would be the same, in the end, as living an honest life like the governor wanted me to. -Alan Sillitoe, "Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner"

Really, Essie?

Because when I workout, I want to be SURE that my nail polish reflects the fact that I run marathons to be skinny!!! <3 p="p">
That's sarcasm, btw. "Marathin" kinda makes me retch a little.


  1. "Gym Dandy" got a chuckle out of me.

  2. LOL. But wait, there's more! I clicked the Essie link and discovered scrollover text providing further description for each color: "A fit rosy pink!" "A motivated griege brown!!" "A driven brick red!!!"

  3. ...actually, the one for yogaga says, "A peachful sandy beige." Can't tell if serious.

    I can't stand it!!!

  5. soooo if i wear pink-ish nail polish i'm basically a marathoner? COOL YOGA BEANS.
