Gorgeous Day!

Today was so beautiful in Columbus. Sunny all afternoon after a cloudy morning, with a nice breeze and low humidity. Yay! I went for a long run this morning and, while warm, it wasn't too bad. It was much better than last weekend.

Shannon and Matt's wedding was super fun on Friday. The weather was so cooperative and I think everything turned out great. Everyone seemed to be having a great time.

The garage sale kind of tanked. We didn't sell as much as we'd hoped and only made a bit over $200. Oh well. We've got everything else boxed up and ready to get donated somewhere. We just want to get it out of the house now.

The Bar Mitzvah last night went very well too. I was SO tired by the end though. I could barely wait to get home and go to bed. I got to just run and relax and get stuff done around the house today though, so it was lovely.

I hope everyone else had a great weekend!

Busy weekend

Busy weekend ahead! First of all, CONGRATULATIONS to Shannon and Matt! They got married just a few hours ago in front of their families, and tonight is their big party to celebrate! Woohoo! I'm doing a few things to help, but since it is adamantly a party and not a wedding, there's really not much for me to do.

Then tomorrow morning, it's up very early to have a yard sale. Our neighborhood is having a giant sale (60 houses) so we're joining in and hoping to get rid of some stuff.

Then at 1:00, I have to hightail it downtown and help my dad with a Bar Mitzvah he planned. That will be 10+ hours of teenage-filled fun.

I've stocked up on energy drinks and hoping they will get me through tomorrow. I'm already tired just thinking about it. But then I have absolutely nothing planned on Sunday, so that is wonderful. Well, except that I need to get my long run done. But then next week is a 4 day week! yay!

Happy weekend everyone!

i didn't know humid

omg, the run this morning SUCKED. Remember that humidity from yesterday? It sure as heck didn't go away overnight. That was 11 miles of sheer torture. Thank goodness for Susan, otherwise my a$$ would have been taking an awful lot of walk breaks. It was hot, humid, and gross. It was our first really gross run of the season, plus some of us have been spending more time unpacking that pounding the pavement. I should get back to the basement....

humidity and marathon time!

i just walked the dogs for about 20 minutes and wanted to die because it was so humid out. it's 10:00 at night!! what the heck?!

I must apologize to my three devoted readers for slacking on the blogging. I always think about posting when I'm at work, and I feel like it's probably not good form to post at work. I'll try to get a bit better.

Ironically, I've actually started a second blog. I decided to start one solely about the food and drink, called ColYUMbus. :) It will have all of my CSA reports, restaurant reviews, recipes, etc. We'll see, I may get bored of both. :) ha!

One fun thing I did today was write down all of my training runs on a calendar. I'm officially into training for the Chicago Marathon! I've not been doing a good job of tracking my runs, which I need to do in order to stay on top of the training. It's starting to feel real now! On that note, I should probably think about getting to bed pretty soon since I have a long run in the morning. Have a great weekend!

still unpacking.

not much to post because I'm still unpacking. I'm planning to take a half day today to go clean out the old apartment and unpack some more. and then Todd and I are planning on hitting a bar for some special drinkies tonight. Things are going great except we can't get the dogs to calm down enough to let the cats even get to meet them. We're starting to get a little frustrated even though it really hasn't been very long. Anyone have any ins with Cesar Millan? I think we could really use him. :)

I'm moved in!

I'm officially moved in! Almost all of my stuff is here now, and most importantly, so are the dogs! So far, there has been no dog/cat interaction, but one of the cats did venture out from the basement while the dogs were sleeping on the couch. Nothing happened. :) There is SO much unpacking and organizing to do!!!! I could be at this for a week straight. Yikes.

I guess I should get back to it. Have a great weekend!

Packing, ugh!

I hate moving. But I'm really looking forward to moving in with Todd this weekend, so it should all be worth it. :)

My birthday was nice yesterday. Todd took me out to a very nice dinner and that took up most of the night. Despite it being a Monday and being at work, it was a good day. Plus, it's a four day week this week since I'm taking Friday off to move!

Um, YAY me!!!

I have to take a moment to pat myself on the back. I ran a 5k yesterday morning (Kayla 5k) and placed 3rd in my age group!!! I've never gotten any sort of athletic award. My mom reminded me that I have a volleyball trophy but then I reminded her that it was for participation and everyone on the team got one. I don't know what my official time was but my Garmin said 25:18. They haven't posted results online yet, so I'll update when they do. I was really hoping to break 25 minutes but given that I went out with my running girlfriends on Friday night and drank too much, I'm very happy with how I did. I haven't done a 5K in several years and this is definitely a new PR, by several minutes. Here's my new hardware:

Thanks for letting me brag for a minute. Now, back to your regularly scheduled Sunday morning. Which for me today means heading out for a long run since I bailed on mine yesterday.
