uh oh

These are not the legs of a Russian Weight Lifter. They are the legs of one Mary Christine. I think this is frightening. But I guess it beats flab... I guess.

I logged 90 miles in January, which I am thrilled about. I never ever thought I could run 90 miles in one month. I also registered for another half-marathon yesterday. This one is the Denver Marathon which is in October. Maybe by October, I will have recovered from the Colorado Colfax half-marathon in May, and the two triathlons in July and August.

I am donating blood at 10:30 this morning. I talked my daughter into joining me. I am a bad donor, I am squeamish, and half the time I feel sick afterwards... but they really really need blood due to the weather of the last month.

"The readiness to take the full consequences of our past acts, and to take responsibility for the well-being of others at the same time, is the very spirit of Step Nine." -- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 87

That reminds me of the Turtle Dove that went to donate blood. The dove did not have enough blood to give, but wouldn't shutup while at the clinic.
At the end of the day, the nurses were all talking about the bloodless coo.

Great goals you are setting -- and it seems like you are enjoying your journey.S
