One More Month

Yesterday Michael had part of his 15 minutes of fame. He was interviewed by a local TV station for their news, about building codes and plans to rejuvinate a costal community. This is a controversial issue becasue some people would like the neighborhood to stay as dumpy as it is. Of course, there's a lot more to this than the way I put it. Michael was on the news for a good 15 seconds or so.

Reality Check:
There's exactly one month left until the marathon... Photobucket - Video and Image HostingWe've received our race numbers in the mail last night, but we don't get the actual ones that go on the shirt until the expo. I was pretty excited opening that piece of mail... It made my day.

Things that went right:
*I did my mile per PDB in 9:45 on the gym treadmill IN ADDITION to the 6+ additional miles I ran. I didn't keep time because I wanted to get that mile time first...
*Eating is on track, and since this is a recoup week, I'm not carb loading as much as I did last week, so I'm not feeling fluffy
*I got my race number
*Michael's dad is back home today, finally.

Things that need improvement:
*My treadmill times are always much slower than when I run outside. I think it's because I always start out slow for the first two minutes.
*Do laundry.
*Start spackling the walls at the "new" old house.

Good to hear that Michael's dad is back home. That must be good for him, too.

And just think, one of very own blends is married to a TV star!

We're glad he's home now. I just hope the recouperation continutes. Um, TV star? Hehehehehehe... I don't think 15 seconds of local air time constitutes a TV star, but he's still my star... ;)
Thanks, Tom!
