Taking the plunge

I registered for the downtown Turkey Trot, in hopes that I wouldn't have to run half of it straight into 15mph north winds! So, it's a done deal. $30 I won't be getting back.

I need to find something to keep my ears warm. Guess I'll have to swing by Academy tonight or tomorrow and see what's available.

Today is Bedlam Day at work, so the kids and teachers will be facing off in their crimson and orange. The prom committee is putting it on to raise money for prom, and the sponsor is originally from Maine (hasn't been here even a year yet!) and she called it "maroon" in an email and was quickly corrected. Pretty funny stuff.

Otherwise, I am so happy that it's Thanksgiving break. Yeah, my journalism class is way behind and isn't going to get a unit on newspaper design. Yeah, my band could be farther along on their holiday music. And yeah, I should be further along in my C25K training. But, all of that goes away when I think about the possibility of just lounging with H, watching movies and putting up holiday decorations after turkey day. I'm no good at lounging by myself; last night I got so bored while he was out I resorted to South Park reruns and going to bed at 9pm. I'm lame.


  1. Keep your head, ears, hands, and feet warm. The rest will take care of itself if you're going at a good pace. If walking, dress even warmer.
    I LOVE the Buff! It's a single piece of fabric that can be maneuvered multiple ways depending on your need and it's moisture wicking. I was given one and bought my 2nd one at the Academy off of NWExpy. Most of the Academy employees have no idea what they are which means they probably won't be able to help you locate them in the store. If you can't find them for your Turkey Trot, I suggest giving 'em a try another time. I wear mine as a headband during the summer and over the ears in the winter. I've even slept with it on before because I get so cold at night.
    Let me know if you have any other questions that I may be able to help with. Stay warm and hydrated!!! = )
    I'll be going with my "fit before feast" tradition on my own because I don's have the funds to enter the race. Maybe next year we can do the run together.

  2. Thanks for the advice! I would love to do a run with you sometime :) Though, you'll probably leave me in the dust! I was going to go by Academy today so I'll look for the Buff (love the name ha).
