Clickety Click Click

It's been almost a week since my last post and it has been a long week. I could write about how I spent a good part of the weekend/early week getting puked on by my two year old. Or I could write about how I've spent the last two days in a jury trial getting my ass kicked. Or maybe I could write about how, even with all that crap, I've managed to work out hard enough in the last four days to make my legs so sore I have a hard time standing up.

Instead, I think I'll just say $80 on the Visa and I am registered for the Madison Marathon on May 30th. Isn't it amazing how just registering for a race can give you an adrenaline rush that cures all sorts of ailments? Well, that, and a couple of peanut butter cups.

Money is a great motivator. And getting puked on is a great motivator to do laundry I have found. Buckets and buckets of laundry when those stomach viruses hit.

Peanut butter cups cure all!

Congrats on the marathon registration!

Yay! Marathon registration is always met with adrenaline, and "what the heck am I going to do now!?" Awesome, hope the little one is feeling better!

I would much rather be out $80 and signed up for a marathon than be puked on for a whole week. You win! :) YAY for signing up.

I think that's got to be my favourite statement of the day! Is it sick that that is such a good feeling??? HAHAHA

ZOMG yes, I totally agree. This week I registered for the Denver Marathon (it was only $70 with early bird discounts--can't beat that!) and I only wish it had been my spring race, because I am SO excited to race again! Total pick-me-up.

peanut butter m&ms also cure all. I'm just sayin.

Ooh! Congrats on deciding on a goal race! Hope the little one is feeling better!!

Mama said...

Woohoo! Congrats! I wish I could run that one this year, but my family will be out here. One of these days we'll be in Wisconsin at the same time!

MCM Mama
