1. I bombed my run yesterday. I don't know what I was thinking setting out to try and do 12 miles. The meds clearly went to my head. To quote Jillian Michaels, I was "gargling my heart" after only 5 minutes of running. When my face started to pulsate, I took that as a sign to stop. I ended up "Ralking" (run/walk) 3.5 miles. I am going to let this current sinus infection be a lesson to use that damned Neti Pot since this is such a reoccurring problem.
3. Today is the first day of the Minnesota State Fair. I know to some people, a state fair is just a dirty place, with crowds, carnies, and cows. It is an annual event that our family looks forward to all year long. We usually go at LEAST once. In fact, I purchased admission tickets, ride passes, and a discount coupon book. We are already planning our fair feasting starting with Cheese Curds. It is an awesome way to say good-bye to Summer.
This year I have added an event to the regular line up. I am running the Milk Run which winds through the fairground and the St. Paul University of Minnesota Campus. Sarge is home and will be running with me. For those of you that don't know, Sarge is my partner in crime at work and running buddy. She is currently on active duty and will be home from Iraq just for the fair. I am really looking forward to this weekend's events. Since I am doing the run, that will make all the grease I eat guilt free, right?
