It's October 12! This is pretty rare. My students were FREAKING OUT about it today. You'd think they never saw the stuff.
Just some flurries...nothing sticking. But it sorta ruined my plans to make s'mores tonight and play some cornhole.
So....I'm feelin' pretty good. First week of yoga and it was fun. Kicked my butt though. Just when I think I'm all strong and stuff. My upper body's gotten a little pansy on me. So, hopefully I'll start weights in the next week or two, and begin swimming more regularly to keep my "guns."
(I don't really have big guns. I just like to pretend I do.)
Running's been OUTSTANDING, if I do say so myself! I've done nothing longer than 7 miles, but I've been managing to go at a nice little clip and tried to do some tempo work. Figure I might as well do a few 5K's this November, and maybe December if I have time. That will give me something to fixate--I mean, focus--on.
I have also been appointed to the Cleveland Tri Club's position of Secretary! I'm pretty pumped about this! Hopefully I can get caught up on biz-nass fast and not be all, "Huh?" It's kind of exciting that just a few short years ago, I remember emailing the President of the club to see if I was too newbie-ish to even join. I'm lucky to have such a big and supportive club in the area.
Can I even explain how EXCITED I am to go to Chicago to watch Jacks run her first marathon next weekend?
I can't. Sorry.
You'll have to just trust me that I'm so excited I'm literally bouncing off the walls with excitement. Matt and Mugsy think I'm weird. Well, weirder than usual at least.
There's quite a big blogger contingency heading to the Windy City, methinks! Zeke, E-speed, Walchka, and Running Rabbit come to mind...who am I missing? Let me know! I would love to try and see everyone but I know there's, oh, about 40,000 freaking runners. I plan on running with Jacks somehow, most likely towards the end...you know how it goes! That's about when I start hallucinating and taking random candy from strangers.
Well, that's what I did at the Flying Pig 2 years ago at least. Somewhere around mile 22-23, some random dude on the side of the road had a whole cookie sheet of gummy bears, and I ran up to him, HUGGED HIM in all my sweaty and nasty glory, (?!) and took a big handful.
So, maybe it's just me that does strange things in the last few miles....
So, that's about all for now...MAJOR good luck and go-kick-some-ASS wishes going out to DaisyDuc and Papa Louie who are going to ROCK the Columbus Marathon, and to TriEric and his wife Aimee, who will do the same to the Baltimore Half Marathon and Marathon!
