1. My puppy snores louder than most humans. His favorite place to sleep while I'm working is with his nose under my right arm, snoring away. He's there right now. He also dreams a lot, and his feet twitch and he makes like whiny-snorty sounds. Sometimes he gets the hiccups while he's asleep. He's pretty silly.
2. A good friend of mine found out yesterday that she has a stress fracture in her foot after running Shamrock last weekend. This strikes a weird chord with me - I got a stress fracture in my foot last winter training for Shamrock, and ended up missing the race. I really feel her pain on this one!! She's mostly annoyed about the money she's losing out on the races she's signed up for in the next 6 weeks, so to help her out, I'm going to buy her Cherry Blossom bib. :) :) :)
Last year I had a Cherry Blossom bib, but ended up running the 5K instead of the 10M because of that same stress fracture. This year, I missed the Cherry Blossom lottery, and passed on several chances to buy bibs because I wasn't sure how long my shoulder recovery was going to take, and my first words to my doc last week when he told me I could run in a week were, "Argh, I could've run the Cherry Blossom 10M!!" I'm sad for my girl that she's going to miss this race (and her first trail marathon - bummer), but I'm glad the universe gave me another chance to run this race.
3. I need to stop. eating. potato chips. for. lunch. Potato chips are not a vegetable. I have lots of frozen and fresh fruits and veggies in my pantry, and I think (okay, I know) even a baked potato would be better than potato chips! Today I will eat real food for lunch.
