And now for bigger and more important news, I want to give a shoutout to Gigi who ran her very first marathon on 10-10-10. She did amazingly well for a rookie. I am telling everyone that it was because I cooked for her the night before. Training for weeks had totally nothing to do with it. I volunteered the day before at the marathon expo. It was the biggest and baddest expo I’ve seen. I was stationed at the Runner Tracking table helping people to set up text message updates on their running friends. After finishing my shift I walked around and ate all the free food. I tasted about 10 different Clif Bars, spicy hummus and pita, Yogurt, Gells, Sports drinks, etc. I was so full by the time I left. I had picked up Gigi’s bib while at the expo and on the way back everyone assumed that I was running too. I got a few friendly nodes and hellos ; I felt like a total poser.
My husband accidently threw away our laundry bag in the trash chute. It was all too funny until I started remembering what was in the bag. With the exception of what I have on, I have lost ALL underwear in addition to a few pairs of socks, two of my favorite running shorts, my blue NorthFace shirt, Columbia hooded fleece….YES, I now realize that we hadn’t done laundry in too long.
Have you ever thrown away something important?
