Random Things

June 2, 2010

I feel like I need to let you in on a few random things today:

First, thanks a zillion for the good vibes on Sunday. I ended up logging 18.2 miles at a 9:33ish pace. The route was pretty stinkin' hilly, so I feel nothing but proud of what I pulled off. I can't tell you why, but good thoughts from internet friends really, truly help.

I know. I seem to be losing touch with reality. And I'm so out of touch, that I 100% don't care.
Second, someone asked me about the details of my next marathon--I don't know, I think they want to come and trip me or something. It's in the end of July in Northern Massachusetts. I'm hoping that the third try's a charm and I'll end up with my BQ (BQ=Boston Qualify). If I do, I'll eat a half-gallon of ice cream to celebrate. If not, I plan to drown my sorrows in a half-gallon of ice cream.

And finally, I don't think I've posted a picture of Maggie on here in one million years. So, without further ado, here she is:

Maggie like ice cream.

Maggie is a very serious soul. She'll probably do her assigned reading for high school English class without spitting in my eye, and I'm already freaked out over how to handle such a situation. Things like that are thoroughly unfamiliar to me.

This is Maggie with Auntie Alicia and her girl cousin who is scheduled to make her debut in the end of July. They'll have a nine month age gap, and I'm really excited because my favorite cousin is nine months younger than I am. We had so much fun growing up together. Her name is Harriet and she lives in Munich, Germany.

Have a great day everyone!

I like your reward system for the marathon. I think if I finish my first marathon I will do the same. If I don't finish... I'll do the same. (No chance of a BQ for me. ;)

Oh to qualify for Boston...that would be heavenly. So would a half gallon of ice cream.

Keep it up with the cuteness factor as well as the randomness. It is awesome!
