Thinkin', Thinkin', Thinkin'...


I talked to my marathon runnin' mentor this afternoon. She asked me if I want to run the Platte River Half Marathon on Sunday. I think I just might do it. I think I can do a half. Crazy, because last year, with all the training I was doing - the half was my main event. But now, I am so focused on a whole 26.2, a half sounds like something I can do. My longest runs so far this year have been 10 miles, but I know I can run 13.1. It might not be pretty, but I can do it.

The website for my Alaska Marathon fund-raising is also up. I am the last woman - the one who looks so intense running - while the other ladies have nice pictures of them smiling. Oh well. Feel free to donate! The good thing about this is that all of the money goes to take care of the elderly. Not one cent goes to pay for my race registration or airfare or hotel room - I am covering all of my own expenses.

About the computer... I went to a computer store yesterday and talked to a young man about my dilemma. He just said straight out that a Mac costs more but is better than a PC!?!?! Then he told me he didn't work on commission - well, I think I guessed that already! I think I will go purchase the mac this weekend. I really want it.

I went to the doc yesterday and got medication for my migraine and it worked! After 5 hellish days with a migraine. Maybe I can run tomorrow. I missed almost a week due to that damn headache!

Glad to hear the migraine is gone. I have heard the same about MACS. Also too that people never have problems with them (crashing, etc.) Maybe one day I'll get one.

Good news all around! The MAC is a good machine. I'm just more of a find the right tool for the job kind a guy :-)

have fun with the new computer - I hope you report on how much you love it. And, glad to hear the migraine is gone. Good luck on Sunday if you decide to run.

I think you're able to do a half this weekend. Go for it!

Well if you do the Platte River 1/2 then the best for the both of us.

Pretty level route, if I remember correctly.
