Weekend Update

Where else other than the midwest can the temperature be in single digits one day and FIFTY-TWO the next?? That's right, 52 delicious degrees! I actually ran outside yesterday...with NO jacket! Four miles of bliss while listening to the crackle and drip of melting snow and ice while actually having fun resulted in a 10:30 pace and a very satisfied and happy Carrie.

Unfortunately, the whole week didn't go quite that well. I didn't run at all. I was so busy I couldn't find the time to fit it in. Excuse? Probably. I really was insanely busy, but it was still blistering giving up a run on the treadmill just came a little too easy. I am still struggling with the treadmill, however, I do think the run outdoors gave me some motivation back. Thank goodness, because I have somehow found myself registered for a marathon in June.

In other news this week: Things at the Ridge are crazy as we are trying to prepare for a visit from our Home Office bigwigs in three weeks. I'm trying to figure out how to keep Pearl from reporting her entire apartment missing, while making sure Maude doesn't throw anything....not to mention the challenge of what to do with Naomi. According to Gladys, she's been at it hardcore again this week, stealing everything from make-up to bras to bed sheets. I think I have my work cut out for me.

I've heard good things about that race. I think having a goal is always good motivation.
