I've been fighting a cold over the past few days. My symptoms: stuffy nose, sore throat, dry cough, and just feeling lethargic and blugh. I'd forgotten how miserable it is to be under the weather. Suddenly I've developed an internal GPS system to find the nearest box of Kleenex (or equivalent) at any place that I might be.
|I could use a truck-sized shipment of Kleenex right about now.|
Allright, enough of this alluring topic. On a much more pleasant note...
My 5-year wedding anniversary is this Saturday. However, Adam and I are planning our official celebration for Friday night. This is because we'll be watching Blackhawks-Ducks Game 7 on Saturday night. Funny how the timing works out on these things, eh?
Angry goalies are fascinating. Check out this compilation of goalies expressing their frustration with referees, opponents, and especially themselves. It's gruesome but once I started watching, I couldn't stop.
All hail to the start of the summer produce season. One of my favorite aspects of summertime is how fruits and vegetables are of such better quality. I have a recurring obsession with avocados. Not surprisingly, I've been having a blast making homemade guacamole and finding a way to eat it with everything under the sun (pun intended). I'm planning to try some guac variations in the future - there are some great suggestions on this list.
Rock N Roll Chicago may still be on tap for this year. I still have two races left in my Rock N Tour 3-pack to use. However, it's looking potentially tough to schedule two more out-of-town races this year. Therefore, RnR Chicago is becoming a stronger possibility. The race date is not ideal given that I'll be attending a wedding the night before. But what the heck - I rarely sleep very well the night before any race anyways.
The Sunburst Half Marathon is next weekend! I'm getting really pumped for this race (thanks again to Melanie for the entry!) I've heard race logistics are really simple (lots of parking near both the start and finish line!!!!) which will be fantastic. I also can't wait to check out the South Bend riverfront and the Notre Dame stadium. Plus, check out the awesome race shirt. The design reminds me of the Nike three-word slogans, a la "Just Do It."
My perfectionist mileage log will live to fight another month. All signs indicate that I will again be able to log 62.5 miles run this month for the fifth consecutive month. This means I am still exactly on track to run 750 for the year! I actually do have the capacity to exceed 62.5 in May - but part of me doesn't want to mar the numbers. It's completely ridiculous, I know.
|In general, I wouldn't describe myself as being a perfectionist, but ironically I do arrange my closet and dresser drawers by color!|
That aside, how cool would it be to have shoes in every color like this?!?
