I'm in a blog drought. How do people write something interesting every week, or every day??? I feel like we've been really busy lately and nothing interesting has been happening. I hate having my weekends scheduled, one thing a weekend is way too much. I've been traveling more than usual which makes things even worse because weekends are spent catching up on the every day tasks - grocery shopping, working out, laundry, house cleaning. Friends are being neglected. On top of that I signed up for a half marathon months ago and haven't run or walked a lick so I developed a 4 week finish or die program which has me spending my free time walking.
This weekend I had a killer workout on Friday that left me pretty sore. But due to missing my long walk last weekend in the Finish or Die schedule I had to walk 7+ miles on Saturday. Which should have been 8+ miles so that means next weekend is going to hurt a bit too. Being sore from Friday and then going from 3 miles to 7.14 miles hurt a bit. I do my best with out and back walks/runs because you have no choice but to walk home. Claire and I walked from my house to the Pepsi Center to pick up my race stuff. She likes to walk with a purpose so we got to kill two birds with one stone. Sunday was the Race for the Cure and with all the walking to/fro and the 5k itself I put in another 4.5 miles. Followed by laundry, gardening, etc.
Race for the Cure was great. Not only is it for my favorite cause (ending cancer) but I got to spend a couple of hours with my good friend Jodie who is the busiest person I know. I was also proud to support the lady of the hour, and beautiful young cancer survivor, Carla. As much as I hate getting up when it is dark out, it was a great way to spend my morning. Thanks ladies!
Monday I leave for Houston, Phoenix on Wednesday, San Francisco on Thursday and then back home. Isn't travel glamorous?
Claire, Jodie, Brian, Carla, Laura - aren't the tutu's great?
