1. It appears that this is going to be one of “those” weeks. One of those where running has to be squished in around life. Today I ran 2.3 miles on the treadmill in 20 minutes, spent a little over an hour on the phone for a conference call, and then ran another 3.1 miles in 28 minutes on the treadmill before Shoo was dropped off again. I ran the first 2.3 as intervals, so at least I got a speed work out this week. Not sure how I’m fitting in running tomorrow or Friday, but I will find at least a small piece of time each day. Almost makes me wish I were a morning runner.
2. If I can survive to the weekend, I will be rewarded. My parents, Beer Geek’s dad and step-mom, and a small number of friends are headed to a brewpub for dinner and beer to finally celebrate my 40th birthday. Yes, I am dragging that sucker out as long as possible. ;o) Stalkers are welcome to join us after dinner, but only if you buy me a beer. ;o)
3. My left eye has been bothering me for the last 24ish hours. I’m hoping it’s just allergies (which is possible), but I’m worried that it’s pink eye. I’ve decided to take at least a day off from contacts to see if it stops or if I need to see my eye doctor. I hate wearing my glasses and I hate running in them even more, so if I can’t wear my contacts soon, I might just lose my mind…
Oh, and I will try to get the virtual race awards in the mail next week. Life has been just a bit too crazy the last couple of weeks.
