short work week!

Wednesday night I had made the decision to come home to register for the Hot Chocolate 15K happening next weekend. I delayed in signing up because I wasn't sure I wanted to race so soon after the marathon. Plus I tend to drag my feet when signing up for races. Anyways, I arrived home earlier than anticipated thanks to catching the delayed flight before mine. Good thing because my original flight was canceled! I guess that's where my luck ran out because I came home to an e-mail stating the race was SOLD OUT! boo... good for them, bad for me. Instead I'll go cheer on my friend and enjoy the down time. Now I need to think of a creative sign...

In other news it's another short week for me! Yeah for copious amounts of vacation days remaining at the end of the year! The shortened week is for dad's clambake this weekend. We came home early to help out around the house and run errands. It should be a fun but chilly weekend! I'm looking forward to eating my weight in clams, clam chowder, and caramel popcorn! I figured since it's a clambake/fall/halloween party caramel popcorn is totally appropriate :)

Finally in running news I'm still taking it easy. My cross-training session kicked my butt on Tuesday night; seriously I'm still sore. It hurt to walk the next day, but a good hurt. Today, I made myself get out there for a 7 mile easy run in the light rain before hitting the road. It started off ugly due in part to my poor mood. By mile 2 I found my stride and was feeling happy once again. I love how running even in nasty weather can do that for you!

Aw, too bad about the hot chocolate race, but spectating will be fun too! And this way you can start drinking the good stuff before everyone has finished running. :)

Hope to see pics from the clam bake. Have fun!

Boo for the race being sold out!!
I went to sign up for a new marathon that I wanted to race in and it was sold out too.

You'll have fun cheering your friend on though!!

Bummer about the race. Don't you hate when you want to give them your money and they won't it!

It's no fun that the race was sold out! We're all shouting a collective boo to that!

It's great though that you'll be out there cheering your friend.

Have a good time with the clam bake!

That sucks about the race, but it's probably for the best. The clambake sounds like a blast. Have fun!!

Funny it sold out ... they were promoting it so heavily I kind of assumed it was not going to be a sell-out kind of race.
