Me? I'm doing pretty OK. I just got done eating breakfast and I am now sitting in my living room waiting for my food to digest and the winds outside to calm down so I can get out there and get in a 6-7 mile run. Not sure why, but getting blown away while pounding miles just does not sound like a fun idea.

I spent most of Tuesday in bed, because I always forget how much drinking too much wine makes my body exhausted. I did manage to get out of bed and go for a 5.5 mile run early in the morning then went out for Sushi dinner and a Movie with Tyler. Sushi was DELICIOUS!!! The movie "Django Unchained" was not so much so. Now... I like Quintin Tarantino, but I just found this movie to be offensive and it made me uncomfortable. That being said... I know that a lot of people are going to enjoy this movie (Tyler included) and I hope you do. Overall the cinematography, music, costuming and story line were very good... but I just couldn't handle all the violence and racism. Call me old fashioned if you MUST.
Yesterday was a very long and draining day. Mom had chemo so we were up nice and early to sit at the hospital all day long. I wish that chemo could go much smoother for her, but it's just a painful ordeal all around and we all end up a little upset for the day. She is suppose to have two more treatments left, but I think her doctor may be rethinking it since it is causing her so much discomfort. We have an appointment with him tomorrow afternoon to discuss our options. During the 8 hours that I spent at the hospital I tried to find things to keep my mind and my body active. I got a jump start on my reading for one of my classes and worked in a little exercise by doing sprints and lunges in the stairwell. I tried to do about 10 minutes every hour or so and I did it 3 times. I think it helped, because my calves are protesting me today.
After that it was off to the Suicide Prevention Center ( I know, I'm a glutton for torture) and finally made it home to pass out.
Today, I have decided is going to be a "take it kinda easy" sort of day. I'm still trying to put the finishing touches on my race schedule for 2013... but these race websites are NOT helping me! But here is what I have so far.
It should be an EXCELLENT year for racing :) I have less than 15 days until the Tinkerbell Half, and I am beyond excited. This was my first Half Marathon and by far my absolute favorite. Well, I think it's time to try and get this run in. Have a Wonderful day everyone!
