2) Two half marathons that I want to run next year are opening up registration on 11/1 and both will likely sell out quickly. The Hippie Chick half marathon in May, which I wrote about here, and then the Vancouver Lake half in January - which I haven't run before but it's being held the day after my 42nd birthday and I think that's a sign that I should run it, yes? And only a $35 entry fee - yes please! After two DNS half marathons this fall due to my plantar fasciitis, I'm a little gun shy on registering again - but don't want to miss out on the action come spring (when my foot WILL be feeling better...positive thinking people...). I think I'm just going to take the plunge and register. Hopefully everything will fall into place and I'll be able to run both of them.
3) On the Christmas List (in case any family members are reading!):
4) Due to a short, late summer here in the PacNW I have a ton of tomatoes that never got ripe. So this weekend I'll be making Green Tomato Salsa. Love not letting stuff go to waste, and Green Tomato Salsa works great not only as a salsa, but also as a relish on sandwiches. Super yummy.
5) On the docket for the weekend: above mentioned salsa making, 2 kiddo soccer games, 1 kiddo birthday party and a kiddo halloween party (which means I also have to finish up 2 kiddo halloween costumes!). I don't remember being this busy as a child. Maybe that's because my mom knew how to say NO! Gotta work on that.
Happy Friday everyone - thanks for reading!
