Friday Five

  1. My two weeks of relative rest is about to end and then training will commence, and the miles will come back - quickly!  Yikes.
  2. Day off and pay day, though lots of money going out for various things like car registration, Frontline for Mattie, etc.
  3. Also, though it is a day off, I’ll be working on things for school (grading, entering said grades, as well as planning).
  4. Soon off to Trader Joe’s to get things for dinner, and tomorrow morning.  
  5. Getting excited about the iPhone 6 launch.  I made paper cut-out’s (I know, I’m a nerd) to see difference in my hand the 4.7 and 5.5.  I have very large hands, so I’m thinking the 5.5 will be what I’ll go with.  It also looks like it will also fit in a pocket, which is a good thing.

Have a great weekend with training, races or just chilling out, celebrating your labor!

So many thoughts….

I have not run since 9 Trails.

Feel so detached. 

Work has kept me busy.

Need to feel the community again.

(dang, is this almost poem?)

Sunday

When we heard about the earthquake early this morning, we immediately thought of the Santa Rosa Marathon and if it still would be run.  Yes, this confirms I have a one track mind; it always equates back to running.  

Still feeling a bit tired, but it is a bit getting back in work mode that always kicks my butt.

Finally finished my syllabus’.  I decided to start from scratch this year, and they look nifty!

Had a nice lunch with Cassie.  Later on we’ll be at a birthday dinner for our niece.  

I think a nap is in my future this afternoon - yawn!

Leadville 100.  Looks so damn pretty, but it is a brutal course.  

One day!
