*my first attempt at designing and making t-shirts. we decided to put the design on nike tech t-shirts. i maybe had a slight bit of anxiety over these shirts... to say the least. but the hard work and end result was worth the anxiety. also, i decided i look a LOT like a waitress in this picture, with that hat and all... anyone need a drink?!*

SPAMALOT. Let me first remind you I am a theatre nerd through and through. I dream about taking a trip to NYC and London just to go to shows. Yeah, THAT level of nerd. Last night I got to finally go and see Spamalot, my date was The Lawyer of course. We share the same level of nerd when it comes to theatre. The show, wow, it's a winner. Really there is no point to that information other than if you know anything about Monty Python and the Holy Grail you will understand when I spout off that "I'm getting better." Because Spamalot is basically the Holy Grail on stage... it was A.Ma.Zi.ng.
So the truth is that "I'm getting better." Slowly but surely. I still sound absolutely awful, but I feel far better than I sound. The good news is that I did run inside on the track with The Lawyer yesterday morning. I ran almost three miles, there was some walking because my breathing is still a bit off thanks to congestion. But overall the run was better than I was expecting.
Which leads me to the fact that I decided I'm brave enough to try a tempo run today over lunch. At the gym . Until I'm 100% I'm keeping my running inside. My setback of the past two weeks is making me nervous about trying to PR. But I'm going to pick myself up, dust the allergies and sickness off and give it a go in Oz. I'm not good at backing down off of my goals unless there is good reason. Being sick for 7 full days isn't reason enough for me. So what's a week off of running in an otherwise pretty solid training cycle? Meh.
In other news I'm running a half marathon for fun next weekend with The Lawyer, and we run the 44-mile relay race Brew to Brew the next day. It's a relay that goes from one Brewery (Boulevard) in Kansas City to another (Freestate) in Lawrence, KS. The Lawyer and I organized two teams from the running club we founded with Shelley, Joggers and Lagers. With a name and running club like that (we basically run to a bar to enjoy beer!) how could we not do Brew to Brew? I'm also thrilled that one of our team captains is this girl, who will also be celebrating a birthday next weekend. It's going to be a fantastic weekend full of running, friends and celebrating, all with zero pressure.
Oh, and we will represent during B2B! I designed our running club t-shirts, which came in this week, right in time for Brew to Brew. Check 'em out. TA-DA.
