Updates, Various

  • I went running yesterday morning for the first time since about, oh, grade eight. I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't a little bit sore today, but I'm glad to finally be getting my butt in gear. I'm going again today, and Thursday - three times a week sounds about right to me. There are two fun-runs coming up that I'm thinking about trying: a 3km race in the middle of April (that comes with a buffet!) and a 5km race on June 1st. Yesterday, I ran 600m before I got too winded to continue, so I have some ways to go.
  • WH and I will be doing this at the beginning of July. We never really took a proper honeymoon, so this will serve as both honeymoon and first anniversary celebration. In the week before we do the tour, we'll be in San Francisco, and today I bought our tickets for a Giants-Cubs game. (Pause while Chorus faints with excitement.) I'm going to save my pennies to buy a gigantic foam finger...
  • WH and I have recently discovered Google Calendar. I tell ya, for the busy couple on the go, this is a GREAT way to keep track of each other's schedules. And it will sync with WH's outlook, so he only has to update in one place.
  • Last night, a member of Chamber Choir who suffered some awful injuries in a recent car wreck - collapsed lung, cracked ribs, cracked pelvis - turned up at rehearsal. And stood. And sang. And grinned from ear to ear.

You'll love the trip to wine country.

ps ... I love your cat picture, and the quote about why you drink coffee ... I think we might be related (I have 4 cats and drink a lot of coffee -:)

I know what you mean about the running - I recently went back to the gym for the first time in over a year. I was stunned at the difference between what I could do and what I had been able to do (espectially on the rowing machine - "you mean I used to be able to go 15 minutes flat-out on that?!??," I said, exhausted after about 7 minutes of taking it relatively easy)!
