Taper Randomness

I really wish I could run faster, so I could try to run behind Lance the whole way through Boston Marathon! Oh it was a happy moment this week when I learned my favorite man, besides my hubby, of course :-), would be at the same marathon as me!!!! I wonder if there is any possibility of meeting him.....I did not know it was possible for me to get any more excited about Boston weekend!!!!!!!!!

My typical morning is being curled up in my bed and a half hour before my alarm is set to torment my ears, I wake up only to realize I have to go to the bathroom so bad. I roll over just wanting to go back to sleep. Then PO'd I get out of bed, walk all the way downstairs, go, climb back upstairs, and pull the covers over my head. Then it seems like 30 seconds later my stupid alarm clock goes off.

I hate when I don't pack my clothes the night before. I wake up in the morning and try to figure out two workout outfits and what to wear to work while scratching my head in a total daze. It stinks even more when you are walking around trying to figure it out and you stub your toe. Then you are running late and you stub your toe again. Sh!t, at least you are awake now!

Hottubs rule! So does swimming with your friend!

Tonight my non-running husband gets bonus points. He is coming to dinner with my running friends and then we are all going to see Spirit of the Marathon! YEAH, I am excited!

Oh my gosh! My mornings are the same, except it's the dog waking me up by shaking his ears or deciding he needs to scratch scratch scratch. Argh. My alarm goes off at 5:20, but the whole hour before I am usually up tossing and turning!

We are going to see that movie tonight in Willoughby, maybe we'll see you there.

My mornings are a little different, I'm scratching my butt instead. :)

That's DEFINITELY a painful way to wake up!

Kim sure knows how to party. I've got a little Lance Armstrong thing going too, but who doesn't...shit. Such a piece of athletic manhood. Somebody's got to do a nude statue of him...
I stumble straight out of bed and head to the blog or the treadmill.
