I was so excited about my PR last week that I forgot it was hump day. Sorry!
Training is Hard
I wish I were talking about the kind of training that makes you quiver with exhaustion and monoamine overload but alas that’s not it. This week is training week at work and I have just spent 3 days glued to a chair listening, listening, listening with just a little bit of talking. I can feel my butt growing like a dry sponge in water as my brains turn to mush. It’s exhausting.
I was supposed to go for a run with The Amazing Hip and SHSMH last night but I got held up in training and then brow beat into going out for dinner with “they boys” for a little more bonding time. I was very sad about that – in fact I still am. One of these days I’m going to meet those 2 – I really am.
Training is Good
Some of you may remember that waaay back last April I was crushed to learn that the Nike Women’s Half Marathon was sold out. I really wanted to run it so I could get the bling. Instead of giving out big old finisher medals they give you a silver necklace from Tiffany. I seriously considered running the whole thing but realized that I just would NOT want to do that and so I let it go.
Well, yesterday due to a fortunate triangulation with Juls a.k.a Sydney Bristow of Keeping Pace (a woman with a masterful ability to secure secret codes) I was able to get to the registration page for the Half. I’M GOING FOR THE BLING! Of course I’m a little under trained but I’m going to Peru in a week where being at 14,000 will be like getting a shot of EPO. I am so ON. I’m going to run 8 or 10 miles this weekend and then I’ll just do what I do in the race. And then I’ll get the necklace – oh yeah. Why just go out and buy one when you can spend $80 in entrance fees and run 13.1 miles?
The Internet is Fun!
Look at this thing I found via Wil’s blog.
The Internet Is Annoying
Sometimes when I look at my own blog I get a full page pop-up for something (can’t remember what). Sometimes when I look at Wil’s blog I get a popup telling me I have weatherbug on my machine (which I don’t). Where does this blog poop come from? Do you ever get that popup on my site>
