Monday Musings

Well, I didn’t complete everything on my to do list but I made a considerable dent. All my x-mas cards are addressed, stamped and ready to be stuffed. I finished the letter just now so as soon as I complete this post I will move upstairs to complete the 2008 x-mas card project. If you don’t get one it is because I don’t have your address or I don’t like you or both. Just kidding! Most likely the former.

This morning I ran a 5K. Not for a race but in preparation for the race I’m training for on Jan. 1st. I can’t believe I did it. I made 3.33 miles(which is actually longer than the required 3.1 but was part of the cool down) in 49:54. Not bad but a long way from my goal. I have a month to get that time down and to train in the freezing cold. To be honest I will just be happy to actually complete the race without curling up in a little ball and becoming Frosty. I’ve downloaded the race path so hopefully we can try the actual path before the race so I feel more comfortable with it.

I can’t believe that I only have 2 1/2 weeks before I leave for Colorado!! Yeah! I’m looking forward to spending a full week doing nothing but reading and watching movies. Of course, I’m going to have to keep up my workouts since it will only be a week until my race. However, it should be significantly cold enough to help with the coldness training.

Well, I better get upstairs. Those letters won’t stuff and mail themselves.
