Updates on Everything

Friday, November 30th, 2007

Since I don’t have a lot of time for a real post I thought I would just make a bulletted list highlighting everything going on at the moment:

  • I didn’t hit 18 miles last weekend, so it is on task for this weekend. 
  • I found another of the quarters that I need.  My current list of needed quarters includes Wisconsin and Utah from the Denver mint and Utah from the Phillie mint. 
  • I have thought of starting Christmas shopping but haven’t truly started.
  • I still haven’t gotten my race booklet and number for the full and it is driving me batty.

Still Kickin’

Sorry, I am still here.  I usually blog when at work and work has just been really busy lately with no signs of slowing down.  I need to find a better time of day to blog.  I will be back with updates hopefully this evening or tomorrow morning.  Promise!

The 8 Days of Thankgiving – Day 6

Monday, November 19th, 2007

Sadly today I am thankful for Advil.  Yes, I know sounds crazy, but when I fell yesterday I think I pulled a muscle in my shoulder.  I am sore and stiff all through my left arm.  Advil has been helping me through the day.  It can’t be all that injured because I was able to go grocery shopping tonight, but I think I am going to lay off from the FIRM workouts for a couple days.  Oh well, that means more time for me to run.  :D 

The 8 Days of Thankgiving – Day 4 and 5

Monday, November 19th, 2007

Time to look back at the weekend and think of things I was thankful for each day since I didn’t blog this weekend.

Day 4 – I was thankful for my dog walkers on Saturday.  I went to tour a place where I was considering leaving Tillie while I was in Florida.  I couldn’t figure out how I was going to fit my sofa in the cage they were going to leave Tillie in.  I decided on the spot that she is staying home and I will have the dog walkers watch her.

Day 5 – I was thankful that I didn’t hurt myself more seriously when I fell.  Yes, I fell again while running.  I was at mile 15.5 of my 17 miles.  I ended up stopping at mile 16 after I fell.  I am a little bruised and my upper body is a little sore, but otherwise no skin was broken and my new $75 moisture wicking tights had no wears and tears.  I did sort of belly flop on my sunglasses, but even they came out ok.  The frames are a bit scratched up, but the lenses have no signs that they came into contact with concrete whatsoever. 

Since it is still early in Day 6 I will have to let you know what I am thankful for later.  It has not been a good start to my morning, but I know there is a shining light out there somewhere in the fog.  Just gotta keep my eyes open.  🙂

The 8 Days of Thankgiving – Day 3

Friday, November 16th, 2007

Today I am thankful for my treadmill.  Just kidding.  Though I will be using it for my speed training this morning because ti is 40 degrees out with winds between 10 and 20 mph with gusts stronger than that.  Frankly I don’t want to blow away and winds can make it difficult to do speed training.

What I am really thankful for today are my friends.  They accept me for who I am no matter what.  They humor me when I am being nutty and listen when they know I just need someone there.  Plus we do lots of fun stuff together like going to see Dane Cook.  Yay baby!
