I knew you'd be the first reply.
Dang, I am just on my second cup of coffee. Will meet my friend at 8:30 for a PW. It is cold so I need to wear tights this morning. But the sun is out!
sigh. when you say go hard, you really mean sink deep into those couch cushions right?
Giant food store this am. girl in school. boy hogging my couch spot.
cold. I don't understand why. I never told summer it could go home.
I was at Giant at 7:35. Beating the crowds of insanity.
and buying skinny food by the looks of your FB picture.

Nope, that's all camera angle! But I appreciate the thought. I've just finally lost what I had gained over the last year of medical mishaps and athletic crap. I'm actually on the high end of my weight range and would like to lose more to try to get to a more comfortable race weight.

regardless, you look happy!
Jen -- I think you are losing weight. Your face looked very thin.
I did lose some. So far exactly what I've gained over the last year due to medical crap and burnout. Part of the reason it looks the way it did was due to the angle. If I took a pic straight on it wouldn't look that way.
Don't worry summer will be here before you know it!
I just returned from the grocery store. A lot of people!
I spend my days wishing for summer. it's actually a shame

Good job Dave. Hope the wind was at your back.

my coconut carmel macaroons need some of your Go Hard advice. They didn't set up. I followed the recipe exactly except I went 1/2 butter and 1/2 margarine because I didn't have enough butter. so they are carmel coconut puddles stuck to parchment paper. I'm still going to drizzle the dark chocolate and sea salt but they are for family only due to the 'stuck to the paper' situation. You might want to un-bookmark the recipe.
Oh no! But did they taste good? That is all that matters.
Was it humid? I don't think the 1/2 butter/margarine would interfere with the setting. Jen -- what do you think?
I'm still going to try them. When I made macaroons 4 years ago, I tried 2 recipes -- neither one looked pretty but they tasted very good.

We've had a couple rainy weeks, but my furnace runs 24/7 this time of year so I don't think it was humid in the house.
They taste fabulous though.
kitty Love. One room of Sh!tty Kitties. Poor little guys; they are all in individual cages so as not to cross contaminate each other. They have got it bad.
The rest though were happy and there are at least 3 that I want to adopt. Shh. Don't tell my husband.
For some reason good weather has come. 50 degrees and sunny though just for today. Gonna wash 3 weeks of funk off my car.
really good/cold run yesterday. Best in a long time. Yoga love for my sore quads later this afternoon.
I honestly don't know how you clean up after kitties. I would be puking from the get-go.

Speaking of puke: I had everything scooped, swept, straightened and ready to go. All the toys were on the counter so I could mop the floor. Naughty Cat jumps up on the top of the cupboard above the counter and leans over and hurls on all the toys and a few pieces of clean bedding. Grrr. Redid the room and as I'm walking out realize there is also cat vomit on my shoe and I have tracked all over the clean floor.
They are worse than kids.
One more day of work and then I'm off work until next Monday.
I ran my usual 8 this morning. 25F. Coldest morning of the season, but little wind so it was a good morning run.
Friday at the high school where Makayla is a senior, there was a threat found in one of the bathrooms that this week there would be a "Columbine 2" shooting. Police investigated, it made the local TV news, and Makayla said many students were not going to school today. Makayla went to school. This was probably some kid just being stupid, but this stuff isn't funny.
You are right, that stuff is not funny at all.
25 degrees -- that is cold. Glad it was good run.

I hope Makayla was ok today. I hate that we can't ignore that kind of stuff. I was listening to a story on NPR this morning about lack of consequences for so many different bad behaviors. Things can't change without consequences. I hope they found the student that made the threat. I hope he/she has some kind of punishment.
