Hi hello, how are you? Anyone out there?
Happy Friday. All the days kind of blend together anymore, it’s so strange. I just know I run on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, and spin on Mondays and Fridays. At least, usually. But that is usually how I keep my days semi-straight. So, I know today is Friday. Whoo-hoo.
After slogging away on the treadmill on Tuesday, I was more than happy to take my body outside on Wednesday and Thursday. I usually split up those runs, doing the bulk of the milage in the morning, and a few miles at lunch. The reason is two-fold. One, I get to sleep in a little (5 a.m. whoo-hoo!) and two, I like to take my lunch break outside. Something about the fresh air and the endorphins really gives me a boost for the afternoon. On Wednesday, my friend Mike joined me for my lunch run, and it was quite enjoyable. I don’t often run with others for a variety of reasons (mostly, my unpredictable stomach), so it’s nice to sometimes risk it and have company. I’ve met so many intriguing people through running, and I think you really can learn more than you’d think by sharing a few miles together.
Semi-related, I was talking to my boss yesterday about how I just find other people so interesting. It’s why I majored in journalism, honestly. I love hearing other people’s stories and learning what makes them tick. It’s all so fascinating to me. In my life, very few people have ever bored me.
But right now, I don’t really want to be talking to anyone, as my mouth is currently peeling and blistered, and its very red and angry. It’s itchy and irritated. So, that looks really, really good. I am so annoyed, where do I even get these problems? My knee and elbow have also developed a rash. Pre-my face breaking out on Tuesday, my GI doctor told me he isn’t convinced I don’t have Celiac’s. My friend Ryan (a doctor in Philly) said skin issues like this are also a sign of Celiac’s. So, back to gluten-free for a while, as of tomorrow. Good itmes.
Ugh. Anyway, tonight, I think T-bone and I will rent a movie and make dinner. An out-of-town friend of his is crashing at our house, but not expected to get there until around 9, so we will probably just stay home. Unless I decide a happy hour at the bar is in order… decisions decisions…
On Saturday, I hope to run, and then I have to go back for a dress fitting. I know, I know, couldn’t they have done this last weekend? Oh well, I get to see my dress again. At night, Tim and I are meeting another couple for drinks and dinner, so that will be nice.
Sunday will be another run, tons and tons of work, and then it’s game night. Two weeks ago, after the marathon (feels like much, much longer!), we held game night at my next door neighbor’s. We all had so much fun, we decided we have to do it again… like this weekend. I can’t wait. The best part is that I can just stroll home whenever I feel like it and it will take me about 30 seconds.
That’s all, folks.
