I won!

I won my Nike + challenge - meaning I hit 55 miles before anyone woman in the 55+ age category (including those who weren't actually 55 years old.) I have run probably a bit too much in order to do this. Yesterday I ran 8 miles, and this morning I ran 5. But I guess as long as I feel OK, I shouldn't worry about it. I am going to have an "easy week" this week, having already logged 86 miles in January.

My computer is very nearly kaput I believe. I couldn't even get my blog this morning. I am trying to decide among computers - none of which I can afford to buy. Should I go ape and get the Mac I want so very badly, or should I purchase another low-end Dell (which is a perfectly good computer.)??? And I can't figure out how to save my photos - I have so many of them on my computer.... every time I read about Aawoken's inability to access his photos, it caused me to break out in a sweat.

I need to get to work. I have meetings all day and they are intense. And then after that - an AA meeting. Thank God.

I don't have a big book here with me, so here goes, one of my favorite quotes, off the top of my head:
"God could and would if he were sought." -- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. __

HOORAY !!! You did it!
Oh I knew you could...you've been so determined. Enjoy your day, and your VICTORY.

Send vicious email to the cheater!!!!!

First check out Carbonite. It's really worth the money to have your photos stored non-locally. Then run and buy a Mac. I walk you through all the tech stuff if you like.

Great for you about the running milestone. No revenge necessary because she has tolive with herself. ewwwwwwwwww

AAwoken knows best - I am sure. However, when I got my new computer last month, a geek friend transferred all my files on my hard drive to the new unit. I lost nothing. It took him all of about 5 minutes.

Congratulations.

I bought a 200 gig external hard drive for $60 after rebate and plugged it in to back up photos and music.

That might work. Again congrats.

You can also transfer the photos to CDs.

Congratulations on your mileage.
