Tuesday Morning

I actually slept until 6:30 this morning, so no running for me this morning. I ran 6.2 miles yesterday morning. I am going to buy a book on marathon training so I can get a clue about how to train for the half-marathon in May.

Yesterday I made a new blog, and of course, it was in NEW blogger. It was meant to be a blog about my marathon training. I actually liked new blogger, it was easier to navigate than old blogger. It is easy to do links, and easy to change colors. HOWEVER, unfortunately, I used my "google" account and now I cannot access that blog, because when I use my google account, which you must do to access new blogger, I get THIS blog. I have no clue how to get back to my new blog. I guess I just need to start a new google account and start over with that blog. I didn't want for it to be anonymous, so it wasn't linked this blog in any way.

It got up to 20 degrees yesterday and I felt like going outside and playing without a coat or hat! It is 7 degrees now and I actually woke up this morning and thought "it isn't so cold this morning." It is a challenge to keep a good attitude through a month of consistent bad weather.

I am boring. I had a three day weekend and didn't do anything I had planned to do - like paint my office and bathroom. I also intended to start a baby quilt to donate to my church. I did none of that. I did have a nice, albeit very quiet and restful, weekend.

(I just did spell check on this thing and it doesn't recognize "google" or "blogger" - how bizarro!)

"I see 'humility for today' as a safe and secure stance midway between violent emotional extremes. It is a quiet place where I can keep enough perspective and enough balance to take my next small step up the clearly marked road that points toward eternal values." -- As Bill Sees It, p. 199

New Blogger recognizes Blogger but not Google. How can you tell the difference in 7 degrees and 20 degrees? Boring weekends are good once in a while.

I missed you yesterday. But my aim shall get better, with practice.

If you are going to get a book on marathon training to get tips on running the half-marathon, which half of the book will you read?

I cannot figure out the old vs new blogger.

Geeze Daave, what the deal?

LOL Dave, nothing like overkill. Maybe MC can delete the extras.

I wondered how I got 9 comments in a couple of minutes! I like it, I will keep them. Of course, Daave always has the option of deleting them.

But I shall take it to mean that I am extremely popular!

I can not figure out what 7 deg. would feel like. It seems like you would just freeze in place like a popsicle. I admire you enthusiasm for running.....lazy weekends are wonderful.

You just amaze me with all this training and running. I wish I had just a little of that ambition.

running in a marathon? geez you are in such good shape

Must have been nice to rest this weekend--good for you to do boring.

Think it was todays reading in GC about the daily drugery-- I undertand I have to do it but a weekend of relaxation of hanging out (altho I bet you still did more than most people) is so good for the soul

thank you for your prayers

I love you guys!!!

That is really cool about the marathon training. That is exactly what John has been talking about. He has not picked anything out to commit to yet but is ready to get some books together and get more serious. The Nano really helps to set his goals. I want one!!!!

Love ya,
Gwen
