You wouldn't think

By my actions, you wouldn't think that I am training for a marathon. The last time that I ran was on Christmas Eve for a brisk 6.6 miles. Since then I have done… nothing. I have yet to run a mile this year. Woe is me.

I was going to get a haircut today at lunch, but ended up deciding that my current configuration works well. I just need to trim around the ears to give a more polished look. After all, appearance, although shouldn't be a factor, actually is in alot of instances. So, if I look like $100 I feel like $100 but if I look like 1.2 Million dollars, I feel like 1.2 million! So, I am getting the $100,000 haircut at home. Not necessarily Lottery winnings, but not pocket change either. The whole clan is going to Atlanta, GA this week for the Mary Kay Leadership Conference this coming Sun-Wed. The kids are going to stay with a friend while Jen and I attend the conference. Last year, when Leadership was in New Orleans, I had to stay with Eric… which wasn't a bad thing by any stretch of the imagination but I didn't get to attend the conference. And I love every MK event that I can go to. How bad can it be when you are outnumbered by BEAUTIFUL women like 500:1!!!

So, that means that running will probably not happen those days. My next chance to run is Friday at lunch. I might do then. Technically, I could run Saturday morning, but our household doesn't do packing for trips very well and I will need the time. As for training for the marathon… I have run marathons with not a lot of training, but they were train wrecks. I will have to buckle down and get the mileage. Plus I need to stop eating this damned fudge I made! Grrrr… but peanut butter fudge is yummy…
