My life in a nutshell

Ran a half marathon today, came in around 2:23:35. Finished strong. Worried I am developing a stress fracture in my shin (again) but felt pretty good today. Tomorrow will be the true test.

Going to go visit my big sis in about 2 weeks. Very excited for several reasons: I get to see her again! I get to visit Colorado which I haven't been to in several years, and I get to see an old college friend of mine and her 4 kids, 2 of which I've never met. Plus gonna go get meself some sunshine!!! We are officially on record here in Anchorage as having the most number of days in a row with rain, and frankly I'm tired of it and want some sun. And thunderstorms.

Work sucks big donkey dick, but that's nothing new. They moved me to a new department and completely violated the contract so we're in the process of grieving their actions. Slow and frustrating but I think it will work out in our favor in the end.

N and I have been working on building a shed today and making lots of progress. I think by the end of the day we will have all but the doors done. Yay! No more bringing the bikes in and out of the house and marking up the walls. I also got the top of the desk stained. Due to weather not really able to mow the lawn. Oh well.

On September 10th going to participate in the Klondike Road Relay which is a relay race that goes from Skagway to Whitehorse. It is sponsored by my work and the other runners are all people who work in the same company as myself, but I'm still going to enjoy myself.

Getting ready for Portland Marathon on 10/10/10. Lots and lots of running. Will be glad to be done with it I think. I'd like to keep up some of the running but the 16miles on Saturday morning are taking their toll. I just get bored of running for that long.

Not sure if I mentioned that we bought a house back in April. Still haven't unpacked everything. I figure that will be a good winter project. I want to make some curtains first. Starting to get dark in the morning and I really hate to fishbowl.

I think that's about it for the moment. Move along, nothing to see here. :-)

    funny how finding letters from 15 years ago can re-still up old feelings. And not always the best memories.

    It was -17 at the house Friday when we left for work. We came home to a heated downstairs and an ice cold upstairs. Oh joy! Was a toss-up between…
