Happy hump day!

I wrote line of a long catch-up post last week, took my time with it and...then it was gone. Ugh. So I've held a grudge for a while. (And oh yeah, kinda weird that most of my audience is in Russia. I've heard that in fact this is not "kinda weird" at all, but more like "kinda normal," so oh well.)

My new job is going great so far. I really like training and I'm learning a lot; I don't like sitting in my car for an hour during lunch, and being trapped with four walls for eight hours a day is kinda draining, but otherwise, I really like it.

There are just over four weeks until my next half marathon, and once again I'm nervous because I haven't been running nearly as much or as often as I should (but on the bright side, I have started cross-training).

A lot has gone on over the past two weeks or so.

Here and there, I've run alone or we've run together. Fun was had. Calories were burned. Hills killed.

We went to Costco early one morning just as they were opening...

...and now we both wonder why people start lining up at least twenty minutes before the place opens. (By the way, we were only there that early because we were going around town doing errands. We didn't line up, thanks.)

We went to our favorite pizza place (Fatte Albert's on Main St in Visalia), and saw one of the guys from Duck Dynasty playing an arcade game, Big Buck Hunting. Oooooh boy. We had a hard time not laughing out loud.

Last weekend, we saw a U2 knockoff (is that what you'd call it?) band called The Joshua Tree. They were really good. And then some people got engaged. I love being married, but yuck - get engaged with a hundred pairs of eyes on you and your pregnant girlfriend? Um...not my scene.

And then, there's the elliptical.

Our elliptical is 15 times harder than any other elliptical I've ever tried. Usually, I can do thirty minutes, no big deal. But this one, I'm proud of the ten minutes I did last night. Tonight, the plan is to "warm up" (slash kill myself) on it again for ten minutes, then start running. Kinda scary.

And it's hump day. This week is officially half over.
