1. I made hotel reservations yesterday for a girl’s weekend for me and my sister! We’re going to Nashville the last weekend in April and I CAN. NOT WAIT!!! Coincidentally (or maybe not…), that’s the weekend of the CMM. I’m excited to go and spectate! I ran the 1/2 last year and it was awesome, but I’m already running two April HMs, so I just want to cheer everyone on in Nashville. I don’t know anyone who is running it this year, so if you are, HOLLA! I’ll cheer for you specifically. 🙂 I even thought about hanging out around the 20+ mile mark and running with various random struggling marathoners for a little bit. I know that would have helped my morale IMMENSELY when I was running mine solo in December. Other than that, I don’t know what else the weekend will involve. Besides The Melting Pot. Definitely The Melting Pot. And band-stalking on Second. And beer.
2. I got this in the mail Tuesday. It’s my Heavy Medal medal for completing two Rock N Roll events in 2010 (CMM 1/2 and RnR Las Vegas Marathon).
It’s pretty cheesey, no? That’s okay. It still looks cool on my medal hanger!
3. I had the brilliant idea to go roller skating this past Sunday with some peeps from church. I haven’t had wheels on these feet in like 20 years. I sucked at it then, and guess what! I still do! I didn’t even want to go out onto the rink because it was sooooo crowded, but the kids that I was with finally shamed me into it. It was scary! The people zooming past me like I was standing still (a stand-still actually isn’t much slower than I was going) made me nervous, and there were kids falling all over the place. I was scared to death one was going to fall in front of me and I wouldn’t be able to stop before I rolled over them. But they finally got me out there and I didn’t fall once. I had several close calls though.
|Celebrating my fall-less first lap. This photo is weird. It makes me look like I have dark roots and no hair on the right side of my head. And that looks like a ghost in front of me.|
