Fun Facts

  1. While in Houston this weekend, I went to the Rodeo. (Well, to the livestock show and carnival part at least.) We rode the giant ferris wheel, which was named "La Grande Wheel." More importantly, baby cows and goats are cute.
  2. I wore the black and gold dress, option #1, to the wedding. It was not as cute as I would have liked, probably because I drank too many margaritas at the rehearsal dinner the night before. But the casual dress I wore to the rehearsal dinner was really cute and totally fit with the Tex-Mex theme.
  3. I am back in Newark, but only for a day. The hotel cookies seemed to be chocolate chunk, but I did not investigate closely, as I am trying to be good. Especially now that I've made a bet with my dad that if he could lose 20 pounds by Father's Day, so could I. So, to win, when I get back to D.C., I'm going to start the "Couch to 10K" running plan that everyone says is so great.

Joe and I are planning to run a 5K the first weekend in May . . . you should join us!

Let us know when/if you're back home so we can take to dinner.

I'm mildly motivated to do this training thing to. If only I can get my lungs under control.

Are you aspiring to run a race? May I recommend:

sopheathene: Maybe. Let's see how good I am by that point. And I am back, officially, right now, for at least the next couple of weeks.

PJ: I have asthma and I'm starting to get fat, but I'm going to try anyway. I think the key to this is that you start out slow and easy and build into it. And if not, there's a couch-to-five-k version, too.

TINGB: Many of my coworkers run Lawyers Have Heart. If I can train in time, I'll consider doing it.

It's a good course for a 10K -- it's mostly flat (out the Whitehurst and Canal Road) -- the downside is that there's no cover over the Whitehurst so the sun can really beat down on you....
