I'm Alive!!!

The lovely POM Blogger sent me a case of this tang-tastic beverage.  I love it!  I poured it over a stemmed glass full of ice, and it was a yummy little snack.  The fact that it is chock full of antioxidants and other health benefits is a big bonus!  I am really looking forward to seeing erectile improvement!  Just kidding - I am a girl... a single girl... oh well.  :(


And I am back to running.  And just in case you thought I wasn't really a runner, I posted a picture of my feet.  I have lost 2 toenails (the second toes) since January.  Do you see the blackness at the base of the right big toe?  That means I am going to lose that one too, just in time for sandal season.   I know, I know, I need a pedicure... but I wanted to take the picture before I disguise the damage.  

Oh!  And see that lovely floor beneath my feet?  My new bamboo flooring.  It is nice, and I really like it.  

I ran a 5 mile race in February.  It was really a good experience for me.  I hadn't trained at all, and was not at all injured, so I was able to really run for 5 miles.  Now I know that 13 minute miles would not be considered "running" for most people, but for me, it is running.  It was really a great experience.  

I threw in the towel on ever getting outside and running.  Just when I thought it might happen again, some brilliant person decided to make it daylight saving time in the middle of the damn winter!  I am getting to work when it is still dark.  So - I have made the trek to the gym to get on the treadmill.  Now, I don't really love running on the treadmill, but when you haven't done it for a while, it isn't so bad.  I can really crank up the music and just zone out on it - without looking for cars, potholes, dogs, and weirdos.  

I am hopeful for spring to arrive and excitement to build about my triathlon and other races.

I love the flooring!!

As to the other pic, you're feet look a bit like mine around the mid sole and I'm wondering what shoes you wear..? I have a terrible time finding shoes that fit decent. None of them seem to have any shape that resemble my feet. :\ My old ones (which were just too big in the toe box) are flattened and my shins want me in decent shoes last month! lol

At least you have varnish on the nails which are there... and it does go well with the floor colour ;o)
