So the other day Will and I had a conversation that went something like this (and I'll try to get your grammar right this time dear...):

Me: "So guess what I'm going to do?"
Will: "Make dinner?"
Me: "Granted.  But that's not what I'm talking about"
Will: "Ok...."
Me: "I'm going to run in the 5/3 Riverbank Run 5k!"
Will: (Uproarious laughter ensues for at least 3 minutes and 27 seconds)
Me: (When he finally finishes guffawing)  "Thanks love..."

While Will may sound like a callous, rude, unsupportive husband ;-) he has a legitimate reason to chuckle most heartily.  See last year he and I started training for it and then I got a bad cold and postponed my training and never really started back up.  I wouldn't have been able to run anyway because I had a pinched nerve the day of the race. Clearly my body knew that in advance so it told me to stop running.... At least that's what I keep telling myself.  

PLUS I begged Will to let me buy an exercise bike and got the OK as long as I promise to use it.  Only I don't.  "Tomorrow I'll start" is the familiar refrain that I keep repeating like a stuck record.  So I figured that if I put my flaws out there for the world to read about I'll have some accountability to really do it this year!  So I will start my training tomorrow :-)  Not really because tomorrow is Christmas. But I really will start soon.  I promise!


  1. You could do the 5K walk, and I'll do it with you! Do you have an hour lunch? We could walk during lunch when the weather gets nice, sometime in June. LOL

  2. Oh Tammy you're funny! It might work, except that the Riverbank Run is in May :-) Our office is going to be moving soon, more towards Leonard and Fuller. I'm really going to miss walking along the river!

  3. Yeah, it was a little joke. ;-) I don't like walking/being out in the cold! LOL
