So Many to Choose From!

I picked up my packet for the Thanksgiving Point Half Marathon tomorrow (less than 9 hours to go!) and just now looked through all the handouts of upcoming races. Here are a few more I'm interested in...
Some of these conflict with others on my previous list, so I'll just have to make a decision about which one to do. I'll tell you this though, as cool as I think the State Capitol Half would be, I'm definitely running the Run of Remembrance instead.

Some races found here. I'll have to look through the website more to find others.

Things I Hope To Do This Summer

I'll most likely be adding (and possibly subtracting) from the list as the summer progresses. Stay tuned for updates (but only if you're interested). (:

Most races found here.

Not Seen on Above List:
  • Finish my thesis. I walked in last week's graduation, now I just need to wrap everything up and I'll be done!
  • Find a job.
  • Hike. A lot.

Thanks For the Reminder Tony

Perfectionism is not an attribute in my opinion so don't beat yourself up when you miss a few workouts or eat some Easter candy. The goal is to have far more good days than bad. Exercise for the joy of feeling good and getting better. Eat right with the intention of fueling your body with the things it needs to perform.

I did not have to report to jury duty. I got a letter a couple of days before needing to go downtown and was told that the case had been settled.

A Few Things To Clear Up Tabs In My Browser (part 2)

In a matter of... well, not sure how much time passed, but not nearly enough - I went from a manageable 9 tabs to an out-of-control 30+. My firefox performance is suffering because it has too many things to keep track of. My only recourse is to list them out again so I can go close up the tabs and go through them one at a time.

This quote
- “I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.” -Vincent Van Gogh

I love this quote for a few reasons, but the briefest one to explain is that it comes from an amazing artist.

A brief video clip featuring the author of 'The Omnivore's Dilemma' and 'In Defense of Food' (neither of which I have read... yet)

A kind of cool poetry clock.

A kind of cool video (which I haven't watched all of yet...)

A super-cute video -

The oil cleansing method, which I've only heard very little about and I'm not sure what I think about it yet.

A neat poem on pride -

My Name is Pride
by Beth Moore.

My name is Pride, I am a cheater.
I cheat you of your God-given destiny....because you demand your own way.
I cheat you of contentment......because you "deserve better than this."
I cheat you of knowledge......because you already know it all.
I cheat you of healing......because you're too full of me to forgive.
I cheat you of holiness.......because you refuse to admit when you're wrong.
I cheat you on vision......because you'd rather look in the mirror than out a window.
I cheat you of genuine friendship......because nobody is going to know the real you.
I cheat you of love....because real romance demands a sacrifice.
I cheat you of greatness in heaven....because you refuse to wash another's feet on earth.
I cheat you of God's glory.....because I convince you to seek your own.

You like me because you think I'm always looking out for you. U-N-T-R-U-E.
I'm looking to make a fool of you. God has so much for you, I admit, but don't worry........ If you stick with me YOU WILL NEVER KNOW.

A few blogs about budgeting -

almost frugal
the frugal girl
fabulously broke
budgets are sexy

A volunteer site that helps you find opportunities close to you.

A few blogs on simplifying life -

zen habits
walk slowly, live wildly
no impact man - 10 suggestions for ways to reduce your impact on the earth. I think they're all possible too. I might have a hard time with the bottled water thing because it's just so convenient...

Now, making my way through the tabs I've closed some without posting because I had a couple of duplicates, and others that I didn't need to hold onto anymore.

Here's to firefox running faster. (:

Happy Wednesday!

He Even Listens to the Little Ones

(she's telling him to sit and shake)

My sister and her family has been in town for the last little while. Max has loved having all the kids around and the kids have loved telling him what to do. Especially when he listens. (: Good times all around.
