I’m in for MCM! I was this close to giving up and trying again later as the computer was locking up and we were running late on 3/7. Thankfully my transaction finally went through. Given the fact that it sold out in 2 ours and 40 minutes, I’m guessing it was more than 90% full by the time I eked in my registration in, so ‘later’ would not have been an option. It was meant to be! What race tops your bucket list?
Solar flares. Our power was out the entire night of the solar flares. Coincidence? I think not. The strange weather lately has been attributed to these flares: hello tornadoes, high winds, volcanic eruptions, and crazy rain. Apparently flares can cause humans to behave erratically as well: mood swings, dizziness, abrupt life changes, new blogs anyone? I was hoping to see some aurora action but sadly so far that has not been the case. Have you ever seen the Northern Lights?
Back to business. Now that my flu episode is mostly over, (still struggling with residual chest gunk and compromised lung capacity) I’ve resumed workouts and my runs have been weak as can be expected. I can’t help but wonder what kind of shape I’ll be in for next weekend’s half? I’m entertaining the possibility of skipping it, but leaning toward just taking it super easy.
It’s skating competition weekend here!
What is fun and exciting for you this weekend?
