I should really be in bed right now...

...but it's been almost a whole week since I've posted anything on here.  Since I always love reading lists in others blogs, here's a top five of my past week.
  1. Back from "vacation" and feverishly planning the next, which is Disneyland at the end of February/beginning of March, with a stop in Vegas on the way back for the Red Rock Canyon Half.
  2. Finally getting around to really planning out my race schedule for the next few months. You can see it in my sidebar.  Four half-marathons and the Wasatch Back Ragnar Relay over the next 5 months.  Probably some 5 and 10k races sprinkled in there for good measure (and PRs, hopefully.) I'm also planning on volunteering at the Lake Chase Relay in May just for fun. I've never actually volunteered at a race and it's definitely time for me to give back a little. I'm looking forward to it. :)
  3. Had my yearly physical today.  I'm in good shape overall but will be anxiously awaiting my cholesterol test results.  I had my first high cholesterol reading when I was just 11!  And ever since, it has bordered on high unless I'm paying extra careful attention to my food choices.  I haven't been great lately but let's just hope I've been good enough. *crossing fingers*
  4. Thai Guy has been feverishly training for his first amateur MMA fight.  That means he's been hitting the gym twice a day most days and leaving me with little options when it comes to my runs.  I've been squeezing them in but usually on the dying treadmill, while my 4 yr old hangs out in my room watching cartoons.  I really need to get outside again, like, soon.
  5. I've run 74.9 miles since Jan. 1st (and that's with a whole week off post-marathon!)  I'm well on my way to 1000+ miles for 2010!
Can't wait to see what everyone else has been up to in the last week but first- I must sleep! Until tomorrow!


    1. Congrats on the giveaway win! I like lists too. Volunteering at a race is fun. You have an ambitious schedule coming up but half marathons are a great distance! Enjoy!

    2. Awesome mileage!

      So exciting about the vacation!

    3. That's amazing mileage and your race schedule is nice and full! Looks like a great year in perspective :) ...with cool trips!

    4. Great job in January! Super exciting race schedule and vacation plan, sounds like you are going to have a busy year!

    5. That's a pretty impressive list of races coming up! Can't wait to read the reports.

    6. hey girl, shoot me your address so I can get the hydration belt out to you :)

    7. That's a busy race schedule you have there. Exciting stuff!

      Your husband is going to be in an amateur MMA fight? OMG, will you watch? I can't watch the ones on TV.

      Impressive mileage to date!

    8. Oh I didn't mean to imply that you were "letting" your husband fight, don't you hate that? Sort of like when women say their husbands are "babysitting" THEIR kids!

      It's just that sometimes those fights are pretty brutal and I would hate to watch my husband in that position. Totally get wanting to support him though. Good luck to him!

    9. WOW, that's awesome YTD mileage! I've missed your posts, glad to see you around. Good luck to your husband for his first fight. Exciting!

    10. Welcome back! Good for you getting some travel in. Love your race schedule! Looks like you'll be putting your new hyd belt to good use!

    11. You have a serious race schedule ahead of you! And you are already rocking the miles for 2010.

      I love the picture of your little boy (and your pillow). There's nothing better than a little body snuggling in the middle of the night!
