I signed up for another virtual marathon, at Barefoot Neil Z's blog, the I Can't Afford the Actual Race, starts April 17th and ends May 1. I'm going to do 10 of the miles during my Moutain Goat Race on May 1st.
Speaking of The Goat, I think I'm going to do just one more of the training runs for it, tomorrow's run is 9 hilly miles.
I found this story interesting, at a local 13.1 race last weekend, ipods were prohibited. At the finish line, the race organizers DQ'd runners who were using ipods. I'm all for using my ipod when I run on my own, and even with friends if we're on a super long training run, but if there is a rule about them, I follow it.
I haven't posted a photo of Luke in a while....here his is the other day. We were down at the pond near my house, and he fell back onto his rear end and sunk into some mud. He had to pull his boot out of the muck with both hands. But thanks to my superior laundry skills, all the dirt came out.
I discovered a new lollipop last weekend at Family Night at Luke's school, it's a Pucker Power Sucker. They turn your lips blue, but it's worth it.
I had a little leftover Indian food for breakfast yesterday, rice and eggplant. Give me a savory breakfast over sweet any day.
You know when people say that when you get one tattoo, you want another? I'm kicking around getting a little daisy on the inside of my wrist......
I'm taking the kid's down to my sister's house for a few days of spring break, I think Frank is going to miss us.
Speaking of Frank, he's almost 50 pounds and still growing. He likes to hang over the edge of the couch and look out the window. One of these day's he's going to launch himself right over.
Monday it was warm enough for shorts. Thankfully my shorts from last summer still fit.
Survivor is really good this season. But last night's The Office with Will Ferrel, eh, not so good.
The new Beastie Boys album comes out soon, I heard the new single, sounds like classic BB. Sabotage is one of my all time favorite running songs.
I had lunch with my friend Heather (my weight loss challenger), and she was telling me she brought her engagement ring to the jeweler because one of the prongs was loose, and her diamonds almost fell out of the setting. So I looked down at my engagement ring, and holy cow, one of the settings is so loose, you could see a space on one whole side of the diamond! Now I've got to take a trip to the jeweler.
I went to my hairdresser yesterday for a cut and color....and a feather hair extension. She talked me into it, it's just three long, very thin black feathers blended into the side of my hair. I can't take a good enough picture of it with my phone. It will look cool when I pull my hair back into a ponytail when I run.
Good Luck to those racing this weekend, and those running Boston, especially to my friend B.W., Monday will be his 20th Marathon!!!!
