I have had a few questions about the shoe drive, and the answer is YES you can still send me your shoes. Absolutely. I was going to go through mid-August with it, but I think I'll extend it through September because I hope to take a box to the Wichita Half Marathon and collect old shoes there. So my shoe drive sure is still a kickin' and later this week I'll have an update of the shoes that are still steadily coming my way. I have some major props to throw out, especially to those who sent their marathon shoes!
Well quasimodo decided we aren't running today. He is especially vicious today. I'm hoping that he calms down by tomorrow so I can get all my runs in for the week. He is ooozing anger. And I mean that literally. I'm pretty sure a few of the warts are already vanished because the skin is entirely gone where they were. And if you are thinking it sounds gross and painful, you are right my friends. But thanks to Ace and Kristen the Running Lawyer, I 'ran' eight miles yesterday. Not too shabby (and by ran, I mean Kristen ran seven hilly ones just for quasi and Ace ran one for me). Thanks guys, I don't feel like a slacker now!
I was going to go to a runners group weight training session at the Y tonight with my personal trainer, but I'm going to skip and do Yoga at home instead because my foot is too swollen to be comfortable in my running shoes. I'm really hoping I'll be ready to do my early morning four-miler with the girls tomorrow morning. Here's another little tidbit... in the past four months, whenever I would talk about being a running slacker or how I didn't run for awhile... it was usually because I had wart treatments. And couldn't, and realized at the time NO ONE in the world wide web would care about my stupid warts. Clearly in the past few months I've gotten over that. These things have taken over my life. In addition, I'm sitting here in total disbelief that I am actually writing about my warts.
