So what's next?
Did you say Christmas?
Well, yeah, but I'll get to that later.
It's time to get my act together for the winter racing season. That's right. See Dick run. See Jane run. See Dick and Jane.....
What I'm trying to discuss is running. It's time for me to pick up the mileage and get ready for Cowtown 2010 in February. I'm planning on doing another half marathon. Finishing medal #2 of 5 has my name on it.
Well, not really, but it is part of a 5 piece set. I got the first one last year. These people know how to make money. If you miss a year, you can still order a "commemorative" medal for your collection.
Hum......ReformingGeek's brain is making clicking noises...
Anywhatsit, I told Hubby I was going to the park to run 8 miles. I offered him the opportunity of bringing his bike and riding circles around me screaming "Faster, Faster" but he declined. So what did he do instead?
He watched a movie. If you say anything about how he had time to watch a movie while I ran, I will throw something at you.
ReformingGeek sticks out tongue.
Sometimes, my evil twin makes appearances when I'm running.
We've had some nice weather lately and there were lots of folks at the park, including clueless kiddos on bikes. One of them passed me on his bike, giving me about six inches of space and then proceeded to stop right in front of me. AAAAAARRRRRGGGH!!!! Did this child not understand the laws of physics? I put my arm out to brace myself and it landed on his back. The poor thing probably thought I was shoving him. Evil Twin scolded him trying to quickly explain that one cannot do that and expect to survive.
No I didn't. Really. That's not even the same kid. He's too young to be on a bike. Sheesh!
Let's move on to Christmas, and yes, I'm OK with calling it Christmas. My friend and I went to see Santa. I know it's early but we were hoping to avoid the long lines. We sat in his lap and asked for stylish clothing and adult-sized bodies with boobies:
I can't wait to open gifts at Christmas this year...
