Moe, for better or worse

This blog used to be called "one year in the life of a short fat runner"; then it was called "Am I a runner? you decide." I've decided running isn't the thing I need to talk about here...it'll come up for sure, but it's just one part of me, so I think I'll just call this blog: Moe, for better or worse.

T -4!

I'd written up a post yesterday...more lamenting. More thanks to my friends who are supporting me. But, well, know what? You get the idea. I have good friends. I'm very very lucky...more than I sometimes believe. So with that in mind...I hit < delete >.

Instead, I'm going to start the countdown to Madison! T -4 and counting!!!!

I am very excited for my trip to Madison. I am going to meet some of my closest imaginary friends and will reconnect with some transitional (imaginary to real life ;) ) friends. I spent a number of hours looking for just the right things to bring with me and I'm planning my wardrobe so I can pack beer and gifts and toiletries (curse you TSA!) in my suitcase. I've spent lots of time chatting with my friends making plans and organizing phone lists and making sure we know where we'll be when. But for this pesky running I have to do on Sunday morning, it should be a fabulous trip!!!!

Now about running. This has been a hard week for training, since I've put myself through the wringer lately and dehydration, exhaustion and mental fatigue do NOT add up to good running. I had a couple of short, good runs, largely fueled by adrenaline, but going longer proved a problem. So much so, I skipped my long run yesterday. So now I've got 5 on my agenda for this evening. I will get it done, although I'm not looking forward to it. But I will get it done.

I have LOADS of laundry to do. I have to shop for a few things. I really want to get a pedicure, but I'm not sure when I'll have time. I have to get to the post office and the bank this week...so many things. All for a 3 day weekend in Wisconsin. Seems funny. But not!
