You are now leaving the Twilight Zone.

Thank you for visiting.

Ugh.

So. Tired. Slept 1 1/2 hours Saturday night, some of which being on a hotel lobby's couch. Light sleeper + friend who snores + didn't know friend snores so no earplugs and tried every method I know to stop snoring from waking me up = attempting to sleep in hotel lobby, only to find out that 5am apparently is the PERFECT TIME TO VACUUM YOUR LOBBY.

Whoa.

To make a long story short, I am very tired--got through my day today, but I think I need a vacation from my vacation. Glad to report I ran 5.5 miles at Maumee Bay State Park before the wedding in a beautiful sunny 60 degree day...post-evil margaritas and enchilada dinner combined with not much sleep.

To make a long story very, very very short, this was a very fun and very emotionally draining weekend, of which was five years in the making.

When I ran Saturday morning, I was running away from something, which I hate doing. But I left there Sunday leaving it all behind. And now I don't have to worry about that encounter anymore. Amen for that.....

No, we're not sisters, although her 8 year old daughter did come up to me and call me "Mom."

It's official: I am signed up for Steelhead HIM next August, and I will be breaking 6:10.

I need to sleep.

That's all I've got.

I'm out.

Sleep is critical as you know to good training. BTW you look like sisters and both of you look great.

How did you sign up for Steelhead? There's nothing on their website. Is the early registration for last year's participants?

I just kinda sorta lost my mind and decided if I can run a marathon in 2008 (remains to be seen, but hey, if you're gonna dream I say dream big) then surely I can do a HIM in 2008. Any chance you might do Steelhead twice in a row? Or are you going full Iron again?

Hallo. I came across your nice blog about Stop Snoring. Snoring is a bigger problem in relationships than what many of my friends and experts had originally thought. Snoring is a real problem that at times can separate a couple within their own home and eventually break up a marriage or relationship without really knowing that snoring was the original underlying culprit.
