1. I signed up for Rock and Roll Mardi Gras this past weekend. So far this has Rock and Roll Vegas in December, possibly the Mobile First Light 1/2 in January (i don’t want to jinx it but it depends on Auburns bowl game), RNR Mardi Gras in February, Publix Ga 1/2 in March and Big Sur in May. AND my crazy self is already thinking about Fall. I am hoping to have the opportunity to do another race with Team in Training (Nike Womens in San Fran & I believe Marine Corp will be options!). But there is also NYC Marathon–if I can get in and for some reason the Portland Marathon is standing out as a potential. Sometimes I wish race $$ grew on trees. Who am I kidding…all $$ should grow on trees. I love that running is my addiction and I love to travel for races its just so hard to decide. Does anyone else have this problem??
2. I have hardly cooked all week and that is disappointing. I have had something to do every night this week (which is great for my social calendar) and my kitchen, bedroom, Tivo and magazines have all been neglected. I am ready for some down time. Luckily this weekend will be low key. I am volunteering to help with the ZOOMA 1/2 marathon here and have to be up at the butt crack of dawn so Friday night will be lame. I am thinking date night with Tivo and a crockpot full of chili. There was a recipe in Runners World that had me intrigued. And then I am babysitting a 4 year old and 18 month old Saturday after volunteering. Pretty sure I will be exhausted so Saturday will be lame too (and I need to run 1o miles on Sunday–another reason to be lame.)
3. I am procrastinating cleaning out my closet. It seriously looks like a bomb went off. More like 10 bombs. And if you know me personally, you know I have a bit of a shopping problem. I buy things and don’t throw out old things. So now it is overflowing. I know I need to clean it out and donate my old stuff I don’t wear. This is really hard for me. I always feel so guilty “giving away” my clothes that I spent my money on (even though someone less fortunate could benefit–i know–i am a terrible person). I think this is why I can’t bring myself to do it. I need someone to come over and tell me what to keep and throw away. I will provide wine if necessary. Just someone…make.me.do.it. My goal is to start on it this weekend. But I have been saying that for several weeks now. So we will see. Must be done by Thanksgiving. Bloggerworld please hold me accountable.
