Race Schedule

2018 Races…TBD!

Thursday, December 29, 2011


I survived the unthinkable, all out war, pure massacre on my immune system...the combination head and chest cold.

Okay, so it's really not that big a deal, but for someone who just plain does not get sick, it's a pretty big deal :)

This was the first time I've had to call in sick to work in over two years.  I probably could have taken one more day today, but when I woke up and felt better than I did yesterday I was too excited!  Work, oh glorious work!  World, people, sun!!

I am really terrible at being sick.  Really.  I must have slept about 14 hours worth of naps yesterday.  And in between hour and a half nap stints I would walk around our empty apartment, stare out the window, flip through an Ultrarunning magazine for about two minutes, stare at the wall for another couple minutes, boil water for a cup of tea, then crawl back into bed for another nap.  I don't know how people do it.  I work with people who call in "sick" every week.  They must get reallllly bored ;)

In any event, I haven't run a step since Monday afternoon, and I am really looking forward to running, and wrapping up Mission: 2000.  Just 18 measly miles left on the radar before I can call myself a 2000 mile runner.  I will love every step; I always do.

I did ponder 2012 goals a bit, while cooking up some quinoa for dinner last night, and today I checked into Gretchen's blog and found 31 Days of Adventure.  I dig it.  That's a good way to start the new year.  Thirty-one days of adventure.  Sounds right up my alley.  I'd also like to set a higher mileage goal for the year.  Those are always fun to do.  And some time goals for a couple of races.  But, I'll save that for a forthcoming post.  2012 is going to be another really amazing year with loads of adventure awaiting us, including a really, really big adventure.  But I can't write about that until it's really set in stone :)  How 'bout that for a teaser?!

For now, I'm looking forward to putting pavement to feet later this evening with my number one :)

Paige, out.
