Weekend Splits

Weekend Splits is my recap of things that I found interesting or humorous over the past week. If you have a submission for the weekend splits e-mail me.

I found the above picture linked from Kara's blog, Between The Miles, although she originally found it here. Kara also has a post there titled How to Kick-ass, I don't need a lesson on how to do it because I do it all day, every day, the right way, to make you pay, without delay, from here to Bombay. Sorry. That was lame and cliché. Okay, I’ll stop now.

Mike Antonucci has a post up at the Complete Running Network about New Year’s Resolutions. Of course everyone has been posting their New Year’s resolutions lately but I found Mike’s particularly amusing. I mean what’s not to like about a resolution that states “Eat all the bread, pasta and potatoes that non-runners are passing up as part of their New Year’s resolutions.”

katieo at Sister Skinny is endangering running. She's an imposter! A fake, a fraud, a pretender, a threat in our midst. She must be stopped. You are simply NOT ALLOWED TO JOG in Pearl Izumi's. It's people like this that make me sick to my stomach and ashamed to be part of the running community. Nah, I'm just kidding. I think it's great. I posted my thoughts on this ad campaign a while back, but I'm too lazy to go back and find a link to it so you'll have to just trust me on that. Or use the search feature at the top.

Random Non-Running Related Video of the Week
This weeks video is some of the most brazen flops that you will ever see in a soccer match. Growing up in England I used to love watching soccer, but lately I only watch the World Cup and maybe some of the UEFA Cup. The video below is part of the reason why.

The video credits itself to but I originally found it at With Leather.
Have a great weekend everyone. Happy Running!


  1. brilliant video!! God i wish we could head butt at work. would save so much talking.

    great REM song, too.

    Imagine if work had a soundtrack.

  2. you wanna hear something funny? that REM song?? that I thought was part of the video? yeah, not so much. I had ACCIDENTALLY starting iTunes on my computer. WITHOUT noticing.

    have a nice year!

  3. I get scared every time I go out in those Pearl Izumi's. I keep looking back to see if the running police is going to give me a citation. ("Take off that iPod! Go faster! Run more like an animal! Look scary!")

    that fridge cracks me up. I especially like his row of little teeny tiny teeth.

    (Jeanne, LOL!)

  4. Having played soccer all my life... that disgusts me. I can't stand it. But, it is kinda comical.

  5. I believe they like to call that "simulation" over in Britain...

  6. Thanks for the linkup.
    We love ya Vanilla!

  7. Thanks for the smile. Here I thought soccer was for real. Next you will probably tell me that WWF is not real. That would burst my bubble.
