8 months until Christmas Eve
78 days until our wedding!!!
8 days until the Indy Mini (I will now take a short moment to solicit your prayers that I do not fall ill anytime between now & then or post-race). Danke!
And only 6 1/2 hours until my weekend starts!
This weekend Mike & I have decided to try not to let our TO DO lists command all of our time. We have a short list of MUST DO's (that he unfortunately left with me & I keep adding to) & then we are going to try to relax. Ahhh...what a thought! He's just trying to keep me healthy. I did some Internet research (about 15 minutes of scanning articles) & discovered that there can be a link between intense exercise & suppressed immunity. Therefore, Mike & several of my family members are convinced that the long Saturday mileage is making me sick. Tomorrow we are only scheduled 7 miles & I intend to complete them & then take it easy. Maybe take a nap (or try to - I'm not much of a napper). We'll see how it goes.
What are your weekend plans? Anybody doing anything fun or out of the ordinary? ;-)

Then the second year I ran I think I was assigned Corral S. Autumn was with me that year & she didn't have a qualifying time so I went back with her assignment to Corral T. Moving up, but not much.
Last year, I ran alone. I had a qualifying time & if I'm remembering correctly I was in Corral Q. Once again, forward progress. And I had a very, very decent (for me) finishing time last year so I was excited to see what my corral assignment would be for this year's race. I got my assignment in the mail this week...
For the 2009 Indy Mini I have been assigned to Corral G!
Unfortunately this is also the year that my training has been plagued by a busy schedule & frequent illness so my finishing time will probably stink, but WHO CARES!!! I'm starting in G!

- Get up and put in 13 miles (walk, run, whatever your pleasure)
- Go to a birthday party barbecue packed with family & friends; while there, play numerous rounds of Duck, Duck, Goose & Freeze Tag.
- Eat a late supper consisting of a Subway Flat Bread Roasted Chicken Breast Sandwich.
- Wake up at 4 a.m. with a vicious stomach virus.
- Spend the next 36 hours unable to leave your home, sipping water, diet sprite, & eating 2 whole pieces of toast.
Voila! On Monday morning (if you're like me) you will have lost 10 pounds!
*In case you're concerned, I'm back to work today feeling about 96% normal. Still a little fatigued & terribly embarrassed that I called in sick to both jobs AGAIN on a Monday. If my bosses didn't know me better, they would have me pegged as one of those girls who goes out & parties it up all weekend.

the wedding is only 100 days away!!!
I'm just a little excited.
Tons of stuff has been going on since my last post. I was sick (again!), work is on over drive at both jobs (hmmm...is that why I was sick???), & I'm trying a new vitamins + immunity boosting yogurt + backing off on my training in hopes that I don't get sick any more. Anybody out there have any additional good health tips for me?
Gotta jet...maybe I'll catch up soon! ;-)
