Races in April: 

In other news: 
  • I had signed up for a trail half this past weekend (Trail Nut).  I started getting sick last Monday with a really bad cold.  I have never been that congested in my life!  I wasn't getting better very quickly so on Tuesday I e-mailed them asking to drop down to the 10K.  On Wednesday I couldn't really turn or tilt my head to the right.  My chiropractor suggested that I not do the race and I agreed.  I ended up not doing it at all. 
  • We bought a new house! (pending home inspection this week *fingers crossed!*)
  • Our current house goes on the market this week.  Needless to say we've been crazy busy getting it cleaned and de-cluttered. I'm concerned about living in it while trying to sell it at the same time, especially with a cat who likes to occasionally leave various kinds of "presents" on the floor. 
  • I didn't run, ride, or lift weights AT ALL last week between my cold, my neck, and all of this house stuff. It happens.
  • Andrew and I have a 50 mile ride coming up in a month and I'm a little concerned about it.  Not only have we not done much training (I've never ridden past 35 miles...), but we also both have to raise $200 for Tour de Cure.  Not that I don't want to raise money for it, but I don't have a lot of time/energy to devote to doing so right now. I've raised $105 from family, so I have $95 left to go! If you would like to donate, here's the link:


  1. WOW! Your still alive! (heehee)

    Seriously, though, I am glad your feeling better. We went to Chicago a week ago and all got the flu! We still managed to have fun.

  2. I've tried to push through illness before and it's no joke. It was bad enough that I til taught spin sick, but trying to keep up with running on top of that nearly incapacitated me. Good call on backing out of the race- best to rest up and get ready for your ride. Good luck!

  3. Congratulations on your new home!!!! That is exciting news. Glad you are feeling better this week.


Leave me some love!
