A brief hiatus

This hiatus has not been intentional, but Mother Nature seems to be having a hissy fit. The rain here has been never-ending, soaking, cold, and brought a friend: wind.

With that in mind, I have taken a break from running, gotten back into my Insanity workouts with Wayne, and focused on allowing my body to heal from the pounding it took in Month #1 of Insanity.

It appeared that my magical Vegas Vodka and Red Bull diet worked.

I dropped another 6 pounds.

Only 14 more until my goal weight.

Hey, bartender!......

Bad Influence

Yes. I've been told I'm a bad influence. Want to know why?

I get people to sign up for races.

Just this morning, still high off the excitement of signing up for the Chicago Marathon with my boyfriend (his FIRST marathon, my THIRD Chicago running), I shared my running excitement with my runner gal pal, June. I knew this would elicit a response. You can't be a rabid runner and not get a little excited at the thought of running a world-class event.

I kept texting.

I kept telling her how excited WE were for the event.

I could feel the excitement building, through the text messages I was receiving in return.

And, within minutes, this message comes through:

"I cannot believe I just did that."

Followed closely by:

"Shit. Shit. Shit."

That's all the thanks I need.
