There is still something in the air. Everyone I know keeps having annoying things happen to them. Last week I took the kids to the movies to see Hop, which was cute, but while we were in the theater someone broke into my Jeep and stole the DVD player and some of E's favorite flicks. I hid the player under the seat, and I could have sworn I locked it, but we were running late, and maybe in my rush to buy tickets I didn't hit the lock button on my keys hard enough. We've also had some nasty thunderstorms, and Wednesday night I saw that the basement ceiling was leaking, right above the treadmill! The carpet was soaked underneath, I have yet to plug it back in to see if it's okay or not.
But on the other hand, I've had some funny Molly moments. Like when a guy at a recent training run asked me what time it was, and I told him it was 9:30, a.m.. You know, in case he thought it was nighttime. Another morning I came downstairs after my shower, with just my bra and jeans on, since the shirt I wanted to wear was in the dryer. I went by my desk and saw I had an email, so I stopped to read it, forgetting that my desk chair is in front of the window. When I was done, I stood up, and the door bell rang. So I'm sure the National Grid Dude enjoyed the view while he had it.
Sunday May 1st is Race Day, and I'm ready. But the weather is going to be exactly the way I hoped it wouldn't be, with a low of 48 and a high of 74. Just like last year, it will go from winter to summer over night, and since the race starts late, at 10:15, I'm sure it's going to be warm. I ran six miles on Wednesday, and it was in the seventies, and it was a hard run, I was a sweaty mess when I was finished, I'm obviously still conditioned for winter temps. This morning I did a quick 3 that went great, probably because it was 50 degrees and cloudy. But whatever the case, I'm ready to tackle 10 miles of hills, and I'm hoping for a decent PR.
Now onto other important matters.....I woke up this morning at 5:45 and turned on the television. I timed it perfectly, Kate was just leaving her hotel for the Royal Wedding. I thought she looked perfect. Granted, there is a lot of tragedy and despair going on in the world right now, but when you have a moment to escape into a true fairytale of happiness, I say go for it.
Have a lovely weekend, and good luck to everyone racing.
