I'm Back!

If anyone cares, I apologize for not posting for the past 4 weeks.  I have no excuse, except that life has literally gotten in the way. I have been interrupted by lunch meetings, errands, and vacation.  However, I did  manage to do quite a few fun things.  So here's a list of some of the things that I did while I was away:

1.  I went for the first bike ride of the year.  I got Roxanne all checked up and lubed.  A couple of days later I went for a nice 27 mile ride.  It was a great ride and much needed since I scheduled for a 46 mile ride on May 15!

2.  I went golfing.  Is 107 a good score on a nine hole, par 3 course?

3.  I got the garden tilled, planned, started planting some of my cold crops, and got my tomato plants started in the basement.

4.  I ran my fastest ever mile (6:17) and 10k (43:47).  I am very excited about both and I feel really good for my upcoming races.

5.  I had probably the best meal of my life at The Publican in Chicago with my best friend, Anthony.  trust me n this one, the sweetbread is not to be missed!

6.  I got our team shirts done for the Illinois Marathon.  They look super sweet; I can't wait for everyone to see them.

7. While my running has been going really well, my diet has gone completely off the reservation!  I have gained 7 pounds since my birthday and am none to happy about it.  Unfortunately I have no one to blame, but myself.

8.  I got the yard seeded and fertilized.  I still have to buy a mower before I can complete the trifecta.

9.  I spent lots of quality time with my friends and family.  It was much needed and appreciated.

10.  I got to see my good friends, ,the Boyds, and their new baby, Charley.  They had been serving in Spain for the past 3 years and our now back in the States on their way to their new post in San Diego.

11.  Probably most exciting, while out for a 7 mile run on a Saturday morningI had poopy cramps and had to duck behind a tree at the local golf course to relieve myself.  Thank goodness there were plenty of leaves around!  I really thought I could wait until McDonald's before I had to go, but I just couldn't make it.

...and that is what I have been doing while I was away.  What have all (two) of you been up to?  I hope to get back on schedule with my posts.
