Made of Money I Am Not

There are a lot of races that I would like to run this year (the first one is in a month - why am I not training yet?).

I just did the math for all the entry fees...

It's almost $500.

Don't tell my husband.

Last Minute Fail

Saturday morning, I woke up with the urge to race a 5K.  Nevermind the fact that I haven't run since the middle of January.

So, 20 minutes before the race was the start, I was bundled up in my running gear and heading over to the start.  It was FREEZING.  Temps in the low 20s with a VERY unfriendly wind.

Leaving out all of the dialog - the idiots were out of NUMBERS and shirts.  I was told that I could run, but I would have to time myself.

So I turned around, got in my car and drove home to my warm house and baby girl.

You would think that since I was all geared up for a run that I would have done SOMETHING once I got home, right?  Nah.  I got in the shower and moved on with my day.

Anyway - Happy Valentine's Day.  I bet you wish you had a cute Valentine like mine, dont you?

Three Things Thursday

I am having so much fun being a mommy.  Seriously - it is the best. 

I'm FINALLY getting a treadmill!... in March - after I get my bonus.

I've got the racing bug.  Which is weird, because I haven't been for a run in almost a month.

If a Woodchuck...

According to Wikipedia - the groundhog is also a woodchuck.  I had no idea.

It's 6ยบ here today.  I'm looking forward to spring.  But I don't think it's going to come any earlier than March 20th.

I haven't run in 2 weeks.  And I won't be running this week or weekend.  Being a working mom is a hard adjustment for me, and right now I still just want to spend all of my free time with my baby.  I'll get back into running.  I have a few races in the next couple of months that I really want to do... and I will.

My birthday is on Sunday.  I accept cash, giftcards and cookies.

I'm turning 26.  So I was just thinking... maybe I should run 26.2 before I turn 27?  Probably not, but it's something to think about.
