News

What's up, everyone? Well, we're under several inches of snow here in The Lou, and LD is out playing with hubs constructing some semblance of a snowman, which is actually a snowpile with a carrot nose and the requisite hat and scarf.

There's been a lot going on around here lately. OK, admittedly, a lot of it has been going on in my head. But I've not had the same snarkiness that you all have come to expect in my bloggerworld, so I've refrained from posting lately. I miss you guys, though.

So what's up with me? Well, actually a lot. I've been pretty introspective as of late which brings out all sorts of crap from the deep recesses of my head, and really doesn't make for good blog fodder. Stuff about marriage, soulmates, the direction (or lack thereof) for my life, career changes, etc etc. BAH. So we'll leave it at that for now.

On the YAY front - I've registered for the Nike Half Marathon. We'll see on April 1st if my Dirty Thirties and I will actually be running in San Fran, since Nike's gone to a lottery system of entry. I'm not Catholic, although St. Sebastian is getting a few messages from me as of late...

If you will recall, my Dirty Thirty girls and I recently celebrated our collective birthdays in San Diego. As a reminder, the half-marathon crew will be these fine people:

Not that we have a collective drinking problem or anything. I'm just saying. Beer anyone???

My sister and I are thinking about doing the St. Patrick's Day run here, although it doesn't start until 9 or something. I'm Irish and may have pounded some pints by then, so I guess we'll have to see...

P.S. An update on my neighbor - she's been in the hospital fighting off some pneumonia since the day after the fall. I've been in touch with her grandchildren (who actually are really great people), and we'll see what happens...

It's funny, a lot of the runners I know are One With the Drink. So, no worries. When I ran the Twin Cities Marathon, they even offered beer at Mile 24. Of course, I was too barfy to drink it by then, so you KNOW it was bad.

Beer on Mile 24? That is totally awesome.

I seem to think I will have no problem with carb-loading...
