Thanks so much for everyone's comments on my Teeter-tottering post. It was amazing how many of you said to go with the full! :) Easy for you to say, right? Now, I'm kidding. I thought about it a lot and I'm following my heart and gut and sticking with the half. I really do want a year to just recharge and I have some things lined up for 2012 that I'm super excited about. Not to mention a crazy fall ahead of me. So I'll do the half at Cedar Point (which means that for all of you doing the full, oh yeah, my cheering is going to be super obnoxious!), and then I'll run both the Akron and Chicago Marathons. I'm really excited about things and can't thank you all for your support.
So, for the other tidbits of info...
Today I ran 135 laps around the track at my gym. Ha, talk about monotony... it wasn't too bad, but holy crap, why do the personal trainers have to be such numbnuts? Tom and I were running for a while... you knew that. You saw us. Why did you have to do your boxing lesson on the middle of the track? Really? It's a two story gym and on a Sunday, you couldn't find a single other place to do that? Humph...
I have a girl's trip planned to Panama City Beach with Mandy (Caratunkgirl) and Kristin (Ocular Triathlete). Um...yeah, I'm super excited! We have already had a blast planning it, got a condo on the beach, will be cheering our butts off at IMFL for our friends and all the complete strangers. I'm sure there will be multiple adults beverages consumed and maybe even a trio of airbrushed teeshirts purchased. PCB won't know what hit them when we roll in!
I ordered a new Road ID last week. I needed one and they have so many great designs out now. I decided to go with the Wrist Slim ID and let me tell you, YOU NEED ONE OF THESE! They freaking rock. They are simply those little rubbery bracelets with an id tag on them. Genius. Best part is, the ID tags can be used on any rubbery bracelet that you already wear (this was a great thing for Tom since he wears one that says "Running On Insulin"). Anyway, I ordered both of us one and got them in the mail on Thursday. I love them! Mine is the kids size in pink (don't judge... I have little wrist and I'm damn proud of that). It's way littler than Tom's:
Jill and Andree):
Even at the kids size it's a bit big, but whatever (this is my "don't mess with me, I know taebo" pose!)
And Tom loves his:
I'm all over the place with this post, aren't I? :) You know you love my randomness! Hope everyone had a great weekend!
