Bullet Point Week/Weak Report

The week's news
  1. School is out for me! Hooray!!!!! Graded my last finals on Wednesday. I haven't posted final grades yet, but I will shortly.
  2. Had a lovely 4 mile run with Elsie on Wednesday (followed by wine and pot stickers) to celebrate the end of said school year. Here's the path we took :-) I'm going to call it profile of me reading a book on the 'mill.
  3. Got the scoop on Elsie's weekend with the PB (practice boyfriend), who is now the RB (real boyfriend). (The reason Elsie was missing all weekend)
  4. For the first time in a long time, I have no plans for a long run this weekend, and to be honest, I'm a little flummoxed by it. I keep feeling like I should be making plans for a long run, but I'm not.
  5. I do need to make a plan for cheering on BBJ, Kat, Santiago, Lisa, Irene, Sara, and all my SDTC friends who are running the Rock and Roll Marathon on Sunday. I think we're going to be on bikes and we'll be at least two or three places on the course...I'm thinking anything after mile 18 is good (it would have been for me!)
  6. I haven't signed up for the SDTC 1/2 Marathon Training Program yet, but I'm pretty sure I'm'll help keep me in shape for both the fall 1/2 marathon training season, and for the long haul up 6th Avenue for the AFC 1/2
  7. Yesterday I bought new tubes (two for me, one for Clarence), a patch kit, a pump, and a new bag to carry it all in...
Some clarifications
  1. Yes! I think some of the herd will be in Vegas in December for the RnR 1/2 Marathon.
  2. This doesn't mean that we won't do the Long Beach 1/2 in October... Long Beach is the first of the California Dreamin' Series and I'm all about the hardware.
  3. Regarding the flat-tire, tire changing adventure on Monday. It's completely awesome that Mik, Clarence, and Betty jumped in and changed both tires, but really, none of us knew what we were doing....which is why it took 45 minutes to change the tires (well...that and we were laughing a lot)
And a video
  1. DramaGirl and Turbo study for algebra (where do my kids come up with this stuff...and yes, that is a cup)...It's not a still photo for NikeMom's Foto Friday, it a series of still photos...all run together that approximate movement.


  1. They certainly inherited your grand sense of humor. I'm signing up for the half mary program too, though I currently can't run. This too seems to be a summer tradition with me. Glad you'll (likely) be there!

  2. Wow, lots of 1/2 mary's......must be nice! Oh well, seeing as how the foot is pretty messed up and all, I just plan to "bike" my way through summer! Lots of big rides coming!

  3. LOL practice boyfriend, too cute. Congrats on being done school!! Enjoy the break.

  4. A practice boyfriend... that sounds very cool. I'd like one of those thank you! Does that mean I can put him in the room my piano, old violin and flute went when I got sick of them?

    Enjoy your break!

  5. I will be looking for you!

    Hmmm... singing athletic cup. That's something you don't see every day. :-D

  6. Hey, thanks for stopping by! I'm adding you to my reader.. :)

  7. So now you'll be changing your own flats?

    O, video THAT and upload it, please, when it happens!

    Looks more like you're holding a penis than a book there on that route. (Sorry. Teh Marcy's not around so someone had to say it.)

  8. All those race plans and you can still change a flat tire. I am in awe. Not to mention a little hungry for pot stickers.

    Thanks for the cute kid video. Big ups to them for making algebra fun.

  9. The video cracked me up (but then again I live with a 7th grade math/algebra teacher who is totally buggy and ready for school to be over!!) Sounds like you've got great plans. Have fun!
