Friday Randomness

Hi there...notice anything new? Wooooohooooo, I am so excited to finally get my blog make over! I put in my order with the Blog Fairy on December 31 and finally made it to the top of her list yesterday - she is one popular, busy lady! So what do you think? I have to say that I am thrilled and just love it! She did a great job getting inside of my head and making sense of what I wanted. Now I have to get busy and get the page links done - good thing Jeff is going camping this weekend and I can spend all the time I need to play with my blog, without feeling like I'm neglecting him! Funny, two years ago when he would go camping, it was a free-for-all-food-fest; now it's just me and the computer!

********************

So today marks one week from my first ever 5K race. It's a night run, and last night when I was out at 8:45, I realized that it was pretty darn dark (really, Captain Obvious?) - I sure hope those glow sticks are strong!

********************

Last Sunday, when I was out running with Jenny, every time I checked my Nike+ sportsband on my wrist I was startled - it took me a moment to realize that the little arm with the (getting more) prominent wrist-bone belonged to me! What a strange phenomenon to not recognize a part of my body!

********************

I had the double-whammy of a dentist appointment (regular cleaning) and a doctor appointment on Wednesday afternoon. Someone who shall remain nameless goaded prodded gently reminded me to take control of my health and check my "heart healthy numbers," among other things. So I did. I then rewarded myself for doing something that is a necessary part of being a responsible adult, but not necessarily something that I like having to do, with a new lip gloss AND a trip to our local frozen yogurt shop. Sometimes, you need a treat. Or two. By the way, stay tuned for a rant about the doctor visit on Monday. I've started writing it, but will need the extra days to delete all of the cuss words. Oh yeah, it was a doozy!

********************

Saturday is supposed to be a beautiful warm, sunny day and I'm going to run another 3.1 miles. Jenny is out of town, but Jeri is supposed to run with me. Even if she can't make it, I WILL RUN by myself. There - I've made the commitment in writing...now I have to do it!

********************

Have a great weekend!

  8. Nice new digs! Love it!

    Don't forget to taper this week for your race. I know there is the temptation to get out there and do a bunch more runs, but don't do it.

    I'll be there in spirit rooting you on - have someone take your picture crossing the finish line, please!

  13. Beautiful New Look. WOW week similar to mine. New look on my blog too. I have had the double and triple whammy of dentist and docto's appts during my so-called vacation from work. But in the end, this self-care week has been an important but eye opening experience that self-care isn't just pampering but the "basics" too!

  14. Your blog looks marvelous! Love the pink bike! Where's Toto?

    Keep up the excellent training toward that run, Skinny Wrists.

  15. Collar bones. That is my thing that I am still suprised to see/feel. I don't think I remember ever having visible collar bones. Wild the things we get really excited about.

    I love your makeover! The picture of your bicycle is fantastic!

  16. Love the new look, goes with your good looks. I have felt similar about my bones post weight loss. I guess our heads still don't quite connect with reality (as usual).
    Careful running at night. Get one of those headlamps.

  24. I didn't see your Blog before your new look. But I absolutly love the little pink cruiser you have on it.
    Good Luck on your first 5k you will have a great time! I did my first one on Thanksgiving morning. It is a great feeling to accomplish that. At least it was for me at my old age of 48.
