The Monkey on my back… literally…


When you have THE MONKEY you don’t need enemies. 😉

For the past 5 years I have been running at least one race each year with Team in Training to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. This year I had help in form of THE MONKEY who got into all kinds of trouble…

THE MONKEY has friends, but luckily, they are pretty tame and don’t follow his mischievous footsteps.


One day, THE MONKEY decided to sneak into my bag and come to work with me. Oh my, what a day that was…

First, he found the printer… monkey butt prints anybody??


A little later, THE MONKEY found the break room. I guess he totally wanted a soda or maybe was just monkeying around.

He forgot that soda is free at my office and you don’t need to sneak into the vending machine and steal…


A little later I caught THE MONKEY on the phone. It was actually quite cute. He called up all my friends and asked them to help with my fundraising:


Cute as THE MONKEY is, he took a break.

Talk about cliches…


Even for a cute MONKEY, dating life is tough.

But really? Do you have to go this far, MONKEY?


THE MONKEY somehow managed to get out of the office, follow me home and jump into my purse. That’s how he ended up in the bar. And I can’t tell you whether they checked his ID. I am just saying…


Maybe a few too many, MONKEY??

I hope it was worth it…


Apparently, we are not to discuss the night before.

Even THE MONKEY sometimes has a hangover….


I used these cute little photos for my fundraising for the Nike Women’s Half Marathon and I thought, you’d all enjoy the adventures of THE MONKEY as much as I did. 🙂

If you have a donation budget left and would like to support me, here is the link to my fundraising page:
