Busy, Busy, Busy

Everything seems to hit at once doesn't it? The least of my problems is that I am up to my eyeballs and then some with work. And of course everything is due 10 minutes ago. Don't they know I have over 700 posts listed in my google reader waiting for me? Needless to say I haven't had time to blog or peruse your blogs :( Maybe over the Thanksgiving break I catch up with everyone! I have a crazy week and a lot of long car drives (2-4 hours each way) but have been found some time, even though I wanted to pass out from exhaustion, to workout and even run 4 miles. Yesterday's run was absolutely freezing but I saw some entertaining people and things along the short route. Always good to keep me going. In fact I think I found Big Foot, he lives here in Chicago...and wouldn't you know he is a winter runner ;) Alright I am off to eat then catch up on my 800 expense reports and 10 regular work reports.

This and That

No I didn't get kidnapped by a pack of wild hyenas (or something like that) I honestly have had nothing to say for the first time in a long time! Running has been sporadic thanks to the fantastic weather and awesome work travel schedule. I'm still trying to figure it all out. And yeah I have been supa lazy. Other than that I cleaned for 2 days straight last weekend to be able to have a small house party (my hallways is finally clear for the first time since January) and otherwise just staring at my wedding pictures that we finally got back from the photographer. Tomorrow we are going to Denver to visit our friends. We found amazingly inexpensive tickets a few weeks ago and I haven't been there to visit in over a year so it's about time. I am sure I'll have some good stories when I get back. In the meantime I'll leave you with a couple of my favorite wedding pics. Oh I am so in love with my photographer! Is that wrong?

Hot Chocolate 15K in a Shirt that Races

I could copy and paste the report in but I'm even too tired/lazy for that right now. wore the Shirt that Races in the Hot Chocolate 15K this morning and posted my race report on that blog. Check it out! I'll leave you with a post race picture to peak your interest.

This was a lot of fun and it is very cool to represent Chicago, Illinois in the shirt's quest to race around the country. Thank you Nikemom for starting this "project"! If you are interested in wearing the shirt and you're racing in a state that doesn't have a name listed next to it be sure to contact Nikemom. And for you men who don't typically wear a woman's medium shirt or pink just isn't your color there may be the start of men's shirt that races so let her know your interest.

Off to wash the shirt and get it ready to ship to Shoe Running for her California race on Nov 9th!
