Well, well, well, it is a wet and cold June Tuesday evening. Sounds about right for Seattle. We had a few lovely days in May but are now in for some gloomy weather. While I don’t mind the gray and rain a lot of the year (hello, fall – how I love thee), I like some sun in the summer time. But not the blistering hot sun. No, I like the sun with not a lot of heat. That’s me, a true Seattleite. If patterns hold, the sun should re-emerge before summer’s end. Fingers crossed.
Anyway, I woke up this morning thinking today would be the day I would actually get out of bed in the morning and go running. The first sound I hear (after turning off my alarm) is rain. Did I let that deter me? No! I got out of bed, stumbled through putting on clothes, and headed to the park. It was a very slow 2 miles (as in the first mile took me 15 minutes – what’s up with that?) but I did it! Hopefully this will start a trend!
I almost wrote I brought my lunch to school today! I guess work is somewhat equivalent to school. But yes, I brought my lunch – quinoa and avocados. One small healthy step…
Guess what showed up in my email inbox today? My Seattle Rock ‘n’ Roll final information package! Holy cow! I don’t know why it surprises me, but it does. So while I was nervous about being in Corral 19 for Portland, I’m not even sure what to think about being in Corral 43 for Seattle. Forty-stinking-three? I might need to move up a corral or two.
There was something else I was going to share with you, but I seem to have lost my train of thought. Instead I will leave you with a few pictures from my Denver trip (the post about which is coming).
