My little sister is coming up tonight. Break out the cork screw!
The movie The Doors was on television while I was sick, so now I've been playing their music all week, Peace Frog is a great song to run to. And dance to. I was also thinking of the time we were in Paris, and we went to Jim Morrison's grave:
I need to make a new play list for solo runs. Speaking of running, the weather is so crappy, I'm seriously afraid that spring is going to skip us again, and race day is going to be extremely hot, which would be lousy since my body is only used to cold temps right now. I ran a hard 10k a few years ago in the Adirondack Mountains, it started at 10:00 in the morning, which is late for a summer race, and between the heat and the altitude, Luke had to give me a push at the end.
On the other hand, it would be nice to have iced coffee. I have a can of coffee from Cafe Du Monde just waiting for me in my fridge, which makes delicious iced coffee. Which is making me think of New Orleans. Such a fun city, except for the time I broke my ankle. But it was still fun.
Ever been to Acme Oyster Bar in N.O? So. Good. I love raw oysters. This past Thanksgiving, My Marathon Runner/Triathlete Dad brought up a bunch from Maryland.
Growing up on Long Island, every October we looked forward to Oyster Fest. It's a great time, with the freshest seafood.
Now I'm in the mood for fish. Luckily it's a Lenten Friday, and I'm making fish tacos for dinner tonight.
My sister better get here soon.
