WTF is up with Blogger auto-posting?
For those who were counting and wondering how this morning's post somehow, mathamatically counted as "Three Things" and also pondered the relationship between my injured hand and the Nike Women's 1/2 Marathon entry, please know that stoooopid blogger ATE about 1/2 my last post. It was a post I wrote on Wednesday night and I had in on "Autopost" to be magically uploaded at 6am on Thursday...but somehow it only uploaded only about 2/3 of the post (which made the 3/3 thing Thursday sorta incomplete)
Anyway, here is part of what you missed, and an update...
Item 1 - Made but somehow, completely lost to the internets...
TA DA - Pretty, new, colorful, lightweight, tester shoes.
|Clockwise from top: Irene, Walter, Michael (Irene's husband) and I model our new and (Michaels) old shoes. Walter, Irene and I are testing new shoes for Runner's World.|
I'm nervous to take the out for a long run though...Advice?
Item 2 - Partially made and partially lost to the Internets.
My yukky palm...
|Cuz you wanted to see THIS again!|
Item 3 - Made in total, and not lost to the Internets, but seemingly out of context due to items 1 and 2 being missing, so I will make an update!
Nike Women's 1/2 Marathon - October - San Francisco
I was on that announcement like white on rice...I've already made reservations to stay in the city near (but not on) Union Square.
I swear...it's like they KNOW we are coming! All hotels in the Union Square area have a three night minimum AND are semi-not-inexpensive. The hotel where we stayed last summer for the SF 1/2 marathon for $140 a night was up to $300 a night. One hotel I looked at wanted FULL PAYMENT FOR ALL THREE NIGHTS up front, non-refundable...
Uh yeah. We are not staying in either of THOSE places.
Anyway, I booked two rooms for for the herd for three nights, so I'm a happy camper/meeting planner. OK stalkers...this is where we will be staying, because as the herd knows I am a hotel snob/diva and will NOT stay at anything less than a 4-star, but I will NOT pay five gagillion dollars a night for my diva-dom.
So that's sorta/kinda what you missed and I know, I know...two mid-week posts is an ENORMOUS drain on your time, s you should go back to your regularly scheduled programming.
