Wardrobe Malfunction?

This is a great outfit for running in the 67 degrees that was predicted for tomorrow - earlier in the week. The latest projected high for tomorrow is 49 degrees - and rain. I am on my way to the running shop now to get some help to figure out what I am going to wear for tomorrow's half-marathon.

I am so psyched. I think that injury served me well. It forced me to rest for a week, and having the doctor tell me I couldn't do it made me realize how very much I wanted to! I thought I was ambivalent, but apparently I really am not. I really want to run this race.

I went out and ran a few slow miles this morning just to see if my foot was OK, and it is. I am just delighted.

Went to a meeting this morning. You know, alcoholics really agonize over every little thing some times... And when you are all wrapped up in a problem, you can't hear anything. I am glad I am where I am and not back there - today. Thank you Dear Lord!

"I once knew a woman who was crying before a meeting. She was approached by a five-year-old girl who told her, 'You don't have to cry here. This is a good place. They took my daddy and they made him better.' That is exactly what AA did for me; it took me and it made me better. For that I am eternally grateful." -- Alcoholics Anonymous (4th ed.) , p. 431

It made me better, too.

Be gentle with yourself concerning the half-marathon. K?
