Even though I am still HERE ~


My mind is already here ~

Ahhhhh.....now isn't that so much better?

2 more days until we leave for Kauai, and I am just more than ready. Well, mentally ready - not ready, ready! Unfortunately, the laundry and packing fairy hasn't made it to my house just quite yet.

I'm still resting and recovering a bit from Valley of the Sun ~ I was extremely sore after this race (unlike the other two races where it didn't phase me a bit). Every part of my leg has been hurting ~ calves, shins, quads...the works. Today is the first day that everything actually feels back to normal.

I have to admit that I was just a teeny, tiny bit relieved to know that Taryn shared some of my leg soreness after this race too ~ you know, it's the whole *misery loves company* thing ~ but it just made me feel not quite as bad :) (so thanks Taryn!) Of course, she happened to run this race in 2:13 and I ran it in.....well, you know. Enough said about that!

I am enjoying the little rest from running though, particularly since my schedule this week is so crazy that it would have been hard to fit much in anyway. So it is nice to not have to worry about it.

I'm hoping for a short run tomorrow night (Thursday) and then I'll pack up my running shoes and get some short runs done next week in Kauai. I so cannot wait!

Unfortunately I'm on Oahu. Have a great time, the weather is fabulous and should be good the whole time you're here.

Wait, there's a packing and laundry fairy? She never visits my house either. Stinking fairies.

The day your legs feel back to normal is a great day. Congrats on making it!

Oh, I love Kuauii with all the waterfalls. And love Hanalei Bay area -- we bar hopped and did a little shopping one afternoon, it's a favorite memory. I hope you make some awesome memories!!

You know people in Hawaii come to Arizona for vacation? Have fun and enjoy the beaches, I'm jealous.

Man, I'm really jealous! Sounds like it will be a blast, but we need pics when you get back. Oh, and no matter how much you enjoy it, you can't defect to Hawaii. It's one of the 50 states, so it's not possible.
