Yay for collages!

5 more days! As of now the weather forecast is partly cloudy 61/83 for Saturday. I still would prefer about 10 degrees cooler, but if it is partly cloudy, that will do.

Anyways, it was almost all moot on Saturday as I saw my whole marathon training flash before my eyes. My room is on the second floor, sort of in an attic (sloped ceilings and the like), with steep stairs that aren't very wide. I was going to a wedding on Saturday evening and I realized last minute that I left something upstairs and I ran up the stairs in my heeled sandals and on the way back down, I totally fell down the last three stairs. I just sat there thinking "Oh God, please, when I stand up, let nothing hurt." My ankle was a little sore, but that has passed. Phew! That was a close one. Yet another reason why heels are the stupidest things ever.

Just did a quick 3 miler (actually a 5k). I haven't run that short of a distance in forever. It was so much fun. I felt so zippy! I was totally cruising too - I did the 5k in 27:05, which is a PR by over a minute - now I just need to do it in an actual race :-)

In other news, the cash is rollin' in - I just got a cheque (tee hee) from Lisa and Mark in the mail, complete with a collage (Lisa is actually and arts-and-crafts teacher trapped in a scientist's body).

Danielle said...

That's just me being a lame American and making fun of the British and Canadians for spelling it cheque instead of check.

Here is a team name: ifuugukl :-)
