Resolution Run

I have just resolved that I will participate in the Resolution Run on New Year's Eve! It starts at 6:00 p.m. and runs around Washington Park. Afterwards there will be pizza!

I think I did this race the first year they had it, back in the early or mid-nineties. It was downtown that year and I think it started way later at night. It was fun. I thought it was a great way to see out an old year and usher in a new one.

I am so desperately ill that I have made an appointment to see my physician in about an hour. Believe me, this is sick! I don't like to go in for a "cold". But I have felt progressively worse each day since Wednesday. I have now missed 2 days of work, and I hope to miss no more. I don't even have a voice anymore and I look like hell!

I miss the me I see evidence of all over this house. The Runners World magazines, the books about how to run a marathon scattered about, the runners shoes, the high heels, the garmin, the iPod, etc. I feel like I am a hundred years old and will never run again. Oh- how I can't wait to get out there again and be a healthy alive person!

That just sucks! I almost got sick watching your video :-) Sounds like a cool run. Make sure you get a t-shirt that says "Will run for Pizza" on the front, and "or Beer" on the back :-)

Hope your doctor's visit goes well! Get better soon!!!!

Get well Mary...the Rockies need you!!!! I like the shirt with the "Will Run for Pizza" on the front AND Beer on the back....

I hope you aren't planning on running in the high heels...we don't need to have you hurt on top of being sick.

Get better soon. If you feel that old and decrepted, can I have the Garmin, and some of the books?

We need you to post a picture of your self feeling like hell, if not we might not believe you.

On a serious note, I hope that you feel better soon, so you can get those running shoes on.
