Renee Zellwegger Likes To Run

I decided – out of the clear blue sky – to do this segment in which I feature a celebrity caught in the act of running. The problem here is that, unlike other folks, I’m too lazy to actually find a photo of the featured celebrity actually engaging in the act of running. Now, this particular celebrity might not be as glamorous as, say, Anna Kournikova. And maybe this photo isn’t the best example but here is Renee Zellwegger not running:

Why did you feed me a lemon?

However, here is a post from fitsugar.com talking about her running addiction. Unfortunately, her addiction seems to be confined to treadmill running and, apparently, Advil (which explains Me, Myself and Irene.) My favorite part of this referenced fitsugar.com post is that they also used the word “copious” which I just had occasion to use in my own last post. Bully for copious!

To be fair, Renee looks much better when wearing make-up and worked over by a team of celebrity fashionistas. However, I still think she always seems to have this odd look on her face as if she just sucked on a lemon, no? To me, she defines “Hollywood beauty.” As in, “if she weren’t in Hollywood and just some regular person working at a grocery store, she wouldn’t be a beauty.”

She does look okay decked out in red and vogueing for the cameras. I find it odd that she’d choose a red carpet event to flex her lats though:

You are under arrest for treadmill abuse.

I’m not sure she "completes me" – only Mrs. Nitmos is allowed to do that – but she might parabola me. (I challenge fitsugar.com to work in ‘parabola’ in their next post.)

Keep on runnin’ Renee Zellwegger!

If you think this all sounds familiar, like there’s something more behind this post, an inside joke or something, no, you’re wrong. It’s just a regular ole post by me. Move along, nothing to see here.

Have a great weekend.

Happy trails.

My 400's still aren't up to snuff. 5 x 400 @ average 1:23 pace (I had planned for 1:20 pace). I cannot shake this upper respiratory illness. Perhaps I actually do have swine flu. Maybe I shouldn't make fun of people. See? It's all coming home to roost.

Tomorrow: 4 x 800 @ 2:50 pace and Sunday LR around 8-10 miles.

Kudos on your metrosexual use of "fashionista" in a blog post (someone's been reading his People), which compensates for your mixing metaphors with "swine" and "roost."

Lauren said...

Is there ever a bad time to flex your lats?

John at Hella Sound said...

I'm not sure those are her lats you're seeing--I think she's so skinny that we're actually looking at the grooves and puckers of her lungs.
Nasty.

Vanilla said...

Oh no you din't!

Coming up on Monday and H-F: a mildly running-related story about how I coach my kids soccer team and am never pleased with how my kids perform! Take that!

Jess said...

Hope you can kick that swine flu so you get your interval back to being speedy!

Marlene said...

Glad I'm not the only one who thinks RZ always looks as though she's sucked a lemon.

Good luck with the 800s.

Viper said...

You better watch out. I just need to shave 20 seconds off my 400s to catch you. Of course, that may also require me catching swine flue.

Aren't all of our blogs a little referential to each other?

Oh hey, look at me, I run. Now that I've interested you with something we share, let me tell you about my boring life so you can pretend to care.

Vava said...

Didn't Family Guy parody her as an anteater?

Roisin said...

I call Zellweger's face the "bunny face". I think it works.

tfh said...

To my great horror, people regularly tell me I look like RZ. My gut reaction is to squinch my eyes real tight, purse my lips, and flex my lats in dismay. Now I can tell them we really have nothing in common: I can't stand treadmills, and I have the disdainful, puffy-faced look to prove it.

Blyfinn said...

I think she is just weird looking no matter what they do to her to be honest.

Al's CL Reviews said...

I always thought she looked like she was trying to spit or swallow...

aron said...

she definitely has a sucked on lemon face.

have a great weekend!

Irene said...

If I had her lats I'd be flexing at the grocery store.

Running and living said...

Why RZ and not someone else? Everyone in Hollywood is running! Just curious:) Ana-Maria

RazZDoodle said...

The hell? Are we all stealing from one another now? First Xenia, then Vanilla, now you? I guess I'm the only original left standing.

chris mcpeake said...

Hey thats the same look I have on my face whenever one of her movies come on.
Good luck on the track work.

X-Country2 said...

Renee does the lemon face because her face is round, and no matter how much weight she looses, it'll still be round and she HATES IT. I enjoy blatent insecurties in celebrities. Makes me feel better about myself.

Kevin said...

With that picture I thought you were talking about a different kind of runs for a second

Velma said...

You must be ill to be posting about fashion. Next thing you know, you will be shopping for a new red running shirt at the Somerset Collection.

I will be up in Michigan this week - please order good running weather.

Jessica said...

her face is the only thing on her that doesn't look frighteningly this. She is either looking babealicious or gross. No in between...at least I look not so good, but I am consistent at it.

Beth said...

I think that she is one of those celebrities that claim to only exercise a few times a week, but actually they are working out a few hours a day. Come on, you don't get that physique from a less than 10 miles a week on the treadmill. Well, not if you are also eating.

sRod said...

well done. And might I say that it is probably even funnier than the version you're not parodizing?
