between 5-9am . . .

 I realized . . .

  1. I'd pay up to $500 to get a solution to the Pita's snoring.

  2. He'd pay $1,000 to get me to stop waking him when he is.

  3. Bad sleep = less than great communication at 5am

  4. He's less than impressed when I think the solution is to fire up the treadmill [it IS at the other end of our home, I'm not that mean.]

  5. He should realize that "little" run saved him. big. time [and me].

  6. "angry" running days can equal awesome running days. 

  7. I'm a "holder on-er".  meaning that argument from last night.  ya, I'm still mad about it [I'll just add on the snoring grumpy bit for extra "fun"]

  8. I'll never be the "do everything" wife I thought I could be.  sure I know how to install insulation, grind floors, use a jack hammer, lift tile, paint, dig trenches, plant cacti, re-plant cacti and re-re-plant cacti but no. no. sorry I will not dig an 8x10 3-4' deep hole in my backyard for a spa I don't want. 

  9. Amy doesn't like my 3 of 5 blogs a week being about running.

  10. That Peanut is quite possibly the most thoughtful 9 year old ever. . . "Mom do you feel like you are "missing something" this morning.  [I'm thinking HA! Yes, where should I start? ....] Me: "My brain".  Peanut: "no a big hug from your favorite daughter."  Cheese ball but loved it.

  11. That this is her favorite photo from our Fiji trip

  12. That - lucky - me.  I won the "we are going to have the farewell party for A & T at our place."  Oh goodie.  On .. the weekend before the july 4th marathon, I'll be running.  yay. perfect.  can't wait.  me you and 40 of your closest co-worker friends.  awesome.

  13. my sitter canned on me for Saturday night.

  14. My dad is doing great after surgery & liked the super healthy turkey meatballs I made him [with the double chocolate cake & ice cream to finish it off with]. of course that was healthy too. [lie]

  15. That I am addicted to Aktin's vanilla shakes.

  16. Spin instructors are amazing.

  17. That I have 38 followers?  what?  That I bore to tears. daily.  loving this.

  18. That my next marathon is in 16 days.

  19. That I still need a jacket [with sweet quote/thought on back] for race day.
I'm liking these:

  • I've got the runs

  • It hurts up to a point and then it doesn't get any worse

  • Act like a horse. Be dumb. Just run

  • Running is a mental sport...and we're all insane

  • The greatest pleasure in life, is doing the things people say we cannot do

  • Mind is everything: muscle – pieces of rubber. All that I am, I am because of my mind.

  • running is like mouth wash; if you can feel the burn, it's working

  • If you went for a run today and didn't sacrifice anything, congratulations you just jogged.

  • Some people say I am insane for running; I say running keeps me sane.

  • Conquer Thyself

  • My pace or yours [already own that one].

Any others for me?

Happy Thursday!

I love all of those!!

I have a shirt that says "running won't kill you, you'll pass out first" I love that one.

I want one that says "I'm just doing this so I can post pics on Facebook" LOL!

hey- i never said i didn't like youre running posts, just a comment. don't hold onto that grudge; there's nothing there. you are a runner. you should post a lot about running.

also- i don't remember anything about your dad having surgery. maybe i missed something?

a snoring spouse is hard to forgive.

You don't bore us to death! I was having a talk with the husband the other night about how we would both sleep better if we didn't sleep together and does that make us a terrible married couple? We decided it did so he came home with herbal sleeping pills - they worked like a charm last night! Glad you're dad is doing well and looking forward to hearing about your next marathon!

I never thought I'd be dealing with snoring either and be the one doing it. Susie's suggestion is to sew a pocket onto the back of a shirt or pj's and put a tennis ball into it. That keeps the person on their side...and will only work if they only snore when they're on their back.

Looks like a good day for a list!
I love to read about your running! You are totally inspiring with your marathons!

all of those sayings are great! hard to just pick one though. my favorite cheezy quote is from Shawshank Redemption: Get busy living or get busy dying.
A marathon in 16 days? Which one?
