Toes in the water...#$% in the sand...

I wish.

Ahhhh....bloggy land. The land where reality can be whatever I please. And I please for it to be warm, sunny, beachy....waves and sand. Eyes are closed....
..............nope. Dang. Still sitting on my couch in my frumpy pants and sweat shirt.

This is me and my Little Buddy on the beach in Italy last summer...

I think I need to go back there.

I am tired. Jeeze. I think I have written that in every post for the last few weeks. It is true, I am just tired. I don't think it has anything to do with marathon training or exercising. I think the last couple of months are just catching up with me physically and emotionally. For now, running and being active is the best thing for me. Yesterday was a rest day and today I ran my whopping three miles. I held a pretty good pace:

Mile 1 9:14
Mile 2 9:08
Mile 3 9:24

Three miles seem to be about as long as I can hold that pace, for now. I have 5 miles on deck for tomorrow. I would like to have them all be 9:30 or better. We will see.

I was looking at my race schedule and it is filling up! I will have to list all my upcoming races for you all tomorrow!

Today I am grateful for:
-Getting my heater fixed by a different company than the shady one that came out on Monday, did nothing, took my money, made me cry AND made me mad....and gave me my money back.
-A very productive day!
-An awesome giveaway over at Run, Zoe, Run! So if you are into Michael Kors and/or bags you must go check it out!!
-Another awesome giveaway over at Mom vs. Marathon. Kerrie is giving away a sweet yoga bag and even if you are not a yoganite check it out, it is sweet!
-Oh and HOW did I forget this!?1? I am going to the Winter Olympics! That's right, on Feb 20 I will be sitting amongst thousands watching Curling! I know, you are jealous! I am pumped!!
(I wasn't kidding when I said I would be working on filling up my calendar! What other random things will i come up with? Just wait and see!!!! :) )


  1. That is so awesome that you are going to the Olympics!!! I am VERY jealous!!

  2. SOOOOO jealous about the Olympics. I wish we were going. And curling is totally fun to watch. Especially in Canada!

    I'm happy you got your heater fixed. When I first saw the title of this post, I was worried you were sitting in your house freezing. Glad you are toasty!

  3. I really want to be on the beach, too. Way too much snow around here. Good pace for your 3 miles!

  4. The beach sounds magnificent! Have a great time at the Olympics!

  5. Even though it's curling, you're still going to be a the freakin' Winter Olympics - Sweet!

  9. The Olympics! Awesome! I've always wanted to go. I've always wondered if there is stadium food and beer like at other sporting events.

    I was thinking I need a vacation too. The I realize Mardi Gras is in two weeks. I'm taking two days vacation, plus i don't work Fridays and I'll have 10 days off. And 3 of those will be all to myself b/c everyone else has school or work. Yea!
