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.

That is Aubrey Miles [via KSK] and I don’t think she’s a runner, but her name is Miles. You know, like those units that you use to measure your runs. It’s easily a close enough tie-in to running for me to post her picture and pass it off as running related. You know what? Why are you even reading this lame explanation of why it’s running related when there’s that picture up there? On to the links (like you’re even reading this).
  • Jamoosh presents the Man-Laws of Running.
  • Beth at Shut Up and Run is trying to win some competition so she can win a trip to Oregon to run the Hood to Coast Relay... wait the winner has to run and the losers don’t have to? What kind of twisted contest is that? Anyway, she needs your help and she’s even promised to post more booby pics if you help her, so get over there and do it. Do it for the booby pics. Won’t somebody please think of the booby pics!
  • XC2 staged her very own duathlon and you're not going to believe it but she won, although I thought the judges should have penalized her for using the word “pre-bonky” and for misspelling duathlon.
  • Me Too Marathon admits to being a whore... oh... check that. She actually said was that she was a downhill whore and wondered if they have porn for that. Indeed they do, get a load of the elevation profiles on this course.

Random Non-Running Related Video of the Week
SNL proves that they are still capable of turning out good, short skits.

That’s all I got. Enjoy the weekend everyone.


  1. Alec Baldwin almost always ensures that the sketch will be funny.

  2. Hey, thanks for the plug!! It is wrong that the winner runs and the losers get to watch Oprah and eat velveeta. I'll take it for the team.

  3. Sorry to sound so ignorant, but could you translate the text next to that photo?
    (Um... you did notice that there were words in that pic?)

  4. Fourth!!!

    Merry, I think the text (which of COURSE Vanilla failed to notice, as he was too spellbound by Miles' other traits) says, "I am a dirty, dirty girl."

  5. Thanks for the shout-out. :o) Although in my defense, I copped to the duathlon misspell. Nebraska public school at its finest.

  6. Because of stupid copyright crap, I can't see the video. Which sketch is it?

  7. That picture is really incredibly beautiful. Who cares if it's related to running! ;-p

  8. OMG, I just realized that I'm finally Split-worthy! (Of course, noteworthy things only happen when I go on vacation.) Thanks for the honour!
