My first skip, and some news...

Two running-related events from yesterday...

1. I didn't run. I knew yesterday would be challenging because I had an appointment in Tacoma -- which means I *should* have run on my lazy Monday night. But I didn't. That's why I built in two "days off" (in addition to all the other days off...) in my challenge. I could have run when I got home last night, but didn't. Hey, at least I'm up front about it.

2. Chatted with the busiest girl in the whole USA, Ms. LL. Here's what she's got going on right now:
 - She just bought a house which closed on FRIDAY (woot!)
 - She just got a new job, gave notice to her old job, and will get to inform the magenta client on this FRIDAY (super woot!)
 - Oh, and did I mention she's getting married in, oh, 6 weeks?

As such, she doesn't have time to "run" (that is, take a heck of a long time getting through) the Rock 'n' Roll Half on Saturday... So this weekend the part of Ms. LL will be played by... Wil! Now, don't get me wrong. I don't approve of race bandits. But I also don't approve of a "no transfers" policy by race organizers. Ms. LL paid for her bib fair and square -- and may I mention they've had the moolah for a year now? So she's gifting it to Wil.

Today I'm heading to the expo to help with the set up -- I know it's yet more proof that I'm a dork, but I can't wait to see behind the scenes!


  1. I will be running the race dressed as Lindsay just to avoid any weirdness...

  2. I can't wait to see that Wil. I think you are prefect for the part. Sorry to miss it, but next year.
