Really rocking now!

Thanks for the advice. I went for it and bought the Ab Rocket. The thing is, my mom wants it, she specifically asked for it and that should be good enough. I double-checked with her, to make sure she wasn't kidding at all. And, no. It's what she wants. So, it's done: I ordered it online, picked up some free shipping, and should have it by the end of the week. Mom should have abs of steel by the summer.

Speaking of summer, when does it start? Oh, right. Not for many, many months. Until then, we deal with the flippin' cold. As I write, my thermometer reads 17 degrees. It was 8 -- single digit! -- degrees when I left the house this morning at 7:30. Brrr . . .

Needless to say, I won't be running outside anytime soon. I did, however, get in a moderately paced 4.75 miles on the treadmill yesterday. Today, I'm off. Conal had a check up today and I have a holiday party this evening so no running for me.

No running today, but I am feeling a little envious of all of the marathoners. I keep reading these race reports and I am so tempted to run another one right now! I wish I could fit in a marathon in 2009. But, it's on my list for 2010, so I'll be satisfied with that. Ah . . . well. Congratulations to all of you who ran this weekend. There were some terrific times posted!

Even though I hate treadmills, I kinda wish I could afford a gym membership so I could run inside occasionally during the winter. It's just too slippery out sometimes!

Ha, winter hasn't even started yet! I think we are in for a cold one.

Winter, winter, go away...

No?! It's not helping? Guess we all have to suck it up then. Haha.

*sigh* I almost wish summer was sooner, but given that I have qualifying exams at the end of may I am very ambivalent about it!

You'll be there soon enough. I'm impressed that you are in shape enough to run one! Just keep on running in the mean time!
