alright, alright...


Since I promised someone I'd update this today...

I guess I haven't posted in a while because I feel like I haven't done anything worth writing about these days...OR, I've had deep thoughts about things, but have been too wiped out/lazy to blog about them.  Either way...neither worth bragging about! :)

The running shoes...
Since BTMR, workouts have continued in hopes of improving...strength, speed, endurance...all good stuff. It's funny...after going up to Barr Camp and down back to back weekends, my interpretation of a long workout/run has suddenly changed.  Maybe it's my brain attempting to have a stable transition into possibly training for a marathon. Hum...something to ponder about. Oh yeah...I did the Women's Distance Festival 5k race last Saturday...and it was oh...horrible! This was my first 5k race since I started running last June and that was pure, stinkin' hell in a hand-basket.  Trying to push as though it is a sprint race, instead of 3.1 miles long...made my calves tighten up so tight, that I just wanted to pop them with a needle! Yikes! Might be a long while until I do another 5k again. I walked away thinking I would've rather run 13.1! PS- it was great to be there with Meg...who is such a stud and got below her last 5k time...great job woman!! Love you!

The home front...
Romester and I are still having laughs everyday...loving the pugs...and about to start a hardcore 6 week lifting/workout program together! I'm so excited! It will bring us back to the place we first became friends- the gym! :) I'm so glad to get to spend this extra time with her...even though we will be grumpy in the morning...I'm sure we will have loads of laughs! 

Friends for life...
Margaritas are great. Period. Oh yeah...and they're exceptionally great at Amanda's Fonda, out on the patio by the river, and in good company of close friends. Favs...the Black & Gold, and the ever so tasty summer treat- the peach marg with salt and sugar on the rim.  Wow, getting into such details...this is sounding semi-alchie! 

Last night Meg, Dana, Maili and I enjoyed yummy josh & johns ice cream outside on the bench! It was great just to sit and visit, and breathe in the summer evening air! :)

Ok...I have a goal of updating more often...and I am serious this time:).

Can't believe you used to live in Austin and never ran Town Lake. You need to go back for a visit, it's a great running town.

Considering where you work, this should be THE blog to catch up on all the running gossip around town and should be updated several times daily.
