To all the Chicago runners out there, I can’t wait to hear your stories. My prayers go out the family/friends of the Michigan Police Officer who died and the hundreds of people hospitalized from the heat. That is just insane! I hope everyone is all right.
6 more days until the Long Beach. I had my first dream about it last night, so I guess I’m starting to feel the anxiety. My dream was actually about how much stuff I need to get done before my runner pals arrive on Thursday. In my dream, I forgot to buy breakfast stuff. So I woke up the morning of the marathon with no food. I think my subconscious is telling me I need to prepare. I wish I could hire a maid, but I’m broke after the VW incident. You would totally laugh if you saw how small my apartment is, but I still hate cleaning it. And I’m sure the girls want clean towels and sheets too –those demanding biznatches. Ha ha. (Kidding K. & M.)
Ran 8 miles on Saturday morning. The run was pretty easy. I saw a man on a bike who TUCKED his running shorts into the briefs. It was really unnecessary. I also got to practice blowing snot rockets (I hope I’m not getting a cold). Another exciting trick that I learned from running. But don’t worry, I only blow them into the sand or bushes. I hate seeing snot or spit on the sidewalk. Now, that’s just gross. Really, are these people raised by a pack of wolves or something?
After the run, I hopped in the car for a nice 81-mile drive to visit my sister and niece. We joined everyone else in Southern Cali in Oak Glen to pick apples and participate in fall festivities. It was so fun spending time with them. My niece is a total crack up and by far, the cutest kid EVER. She learned how to say “shut up” but since she is so polite, she says “PLEASE Shut up.” She is very independant and sassy - gee I wonder where she got THAT from!
Looking forward to a week full of cleaning and very light running!
