1. Last night was Jones’ winter concert. He started playing the cello this fall, so we got to attend the annual band, orchestra, and chorus concert. The concert was surprisingly good. It was probably helped by the fact that the beginning strings section is not using bows yet and we were spared the sound of 30+ cats being tortured.
2. One of the blogs I read, Roc the Run, posted about “what would you choose if you could only have 10 foods (and 5 seasonings) for the rest of your life.” Is it bad that my first thought was beer and my next was coffee? LOL Then I sat down and thought about it (and decided beverages don’t count) and came up with a list:
- black pepper
- dried chipotle powder
What would you choose if you could only have 10 foods?
3. Even when it sucks, running has been great lately. I’m not fast, but I’m faster. My endurance is slowly coming back. Nothing hurts. This may just possibly be affecting my thinking process. I may have tweeted yesterday about doing 12 half marathons in 2012. There may be thoughts of a very late fall marathon running through my head. There may be significant progress made on my 50 states goal. Last night I was a bit like an ADD rabbit on speed looking at race sites, completely unable to narrow down my goals. Sadly though, my life doesn’t exist in a vacuum. I have budget constraints, time constraints, and, oh yeah, two kids. So, sometime in the next couple of weeks, I’ll start penciling in my race calendar for 2012, which will be busy and challenging, is not likely to be as crazy as it was last night.
