I'm not the biggest fan of Sunday night runs around the neighborhood for one reason: garbage. Everyone puts out their cans the night before pick-up, which is Monday here, and the garbage just plain stinks. Not only do I have to hold my breath a lot, but I have to zig zag around these cans in order to stay on the sidewalk. It's hard work! Thankfully it's winter and the garbage smell isn't too bad, but MAN, in the summer...oh brother. It's awful. I can't even do an outdoor evening run in the summer months.
Tonight's run wasn't all that bad though, despite the presence of trash. The frogs were out in full force, singing away. It's been months since I've heard them! I was very happy to hear that familiar chatter. :) And, I took my Nike Lunaracers out for a spin. It's been awhile since they've kissed pavement, and they were eager to go fast.
Today I saw Gus's rich/popular/sleek big brother at the Seattle Boat Show. He was just chilling on top of a yacht like it was no big deal. What a show off! I'm glad Gus didn't come with me because there might have been some heated exchange of words about how Big Bro missed Christmas and doesn't call Mom as much as Gus does...you get the picture. Siblings...
Anyway, the Boat Show is a tradition I have with my Dad every year. It's only the two of us, and it's our "bonding day." This is probably the fourth or fifth time that we've done this, and it's just something fun that we look forward to. :)
That was my adventure for the day. After the 4.2 miles I ran this evening, January's total is 120.46 miles! WOW. This is the most I've run in a month, I believe. Woohoo!
Amanda: Way to rock 7 miles on a treadmill! HOLLA!
Morgan & B.O.B.: Awesome job on the 22.5 miler on Saturday!
Casey: She's going back to work tomorrow after her 3 month leave...go give her some love (& see how adorable Violet is!)
Molly: Happy Birthday!!
Penny: A HUGE congrats to your new Half Fanatic status. #302! (I'm envious!)
Lauren: Congrats on your 5K PR, girlie!
Rachael: I think your bald eagle, Carl, and my bald eagle, Sam, should be best friends. Let's have them meet for salmon sushi, say, next week? I'll have his people call your people. :)
