I work with (insert word of your choosing)

What? Oh, there’s an error message on the copier?

Why don’t you READ it and figure it out. Pretty sure EVERYONE is capable of filling the empty paper trays.

On a completely unrelated note, I still have to write something about my most recent Half Marathon. Work has been busy, both jobs. I will get to it.

Went on a little run this morning. Will make a better post about it later.

I have three full days until I leave for my next half marathon! I’m totally not ready distance-wise. My running partner has been killing it with getting miles in. Go Jim! It is totally alright for him to leave me in his dust. I know I should have gone for a run last night, but after a massage I was just too not into doing anything. Work tonight, so I’ll have to go for a run tomorrow night. I guess I should pack extra running clothes to go for a run before the actual RUN.

But what I’m most excited about is getting to go to Disneyland! A little nervous going through such a major airport. I know, I’ll be just fine.

7 mile run - 8/18/14

Surprisingly, it did not feel this warm.

I tried to keep it slow in order to make it through the distance. My times were pretty good considering I took a few (several) walking breaks.

Silly me, I kinda want to go out for another run tonight. Too bad I have to work.

Mudman, flinging arrows and a family get together/fish fry (not pictured). Twas a great weekend!

I’ll be happy if I never have to climb over another wall again….or maybe this year.

I’m not impressed with adulting right now. Why do you have to be so difficult?


Thank you to those who gave suggestions for a GPS watch the other day.

I think I found one I want to get Randy. However, last night I was told by a mutual friend that he wanted a Soleus because they are less $$. 

WHAT?!? Why??? 

I mean I get that it’s more affordable, and he probably doesn’t need all of the features a nicer watch would have. But it’s so cheap and looks like crap.

I guess it’s hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that some people just want something simple to see their current run info. He had liked the idea of the virtual run partner (something to race against because he likes to run with people to push himself) but those watches don’t really have that option. 

I guess I’ll try to bring the subject up this weekend and we’ll look at options.

But thanks again for your suggestions.
