Not Even 3/4 of a Glass???


I had a difficult run today---why would that be?? I tried to think--I slept hard last night==why would that be??? Well.....I'm a cheap date. I only need 3/4 of a glass of wine to hit the "tipsy" status. Yep...real cheap date. Went out with the girls from work to celebrate one of them finishing chemo for breast cancer and I had my favorite wine. Geesh....am I only left with cursing as my only vice??!!


Saturdays I've been running along Lake Michigan, along the parks of Evanston, IL and meeting up with the magnificent campus of Northwestern University. It's mostly trail running, so my legs are happy campers. I love seeing all sorts of folks out there, running, walking, hiking, picnicing. There was some sort of Walk for the Family going on with lots of strollers and lil tykes out there. How fun!


I bought the radio extension for my ipod and am sooo enjoying NPR while I run. I sometimes need a break from just music, and laughing during my run is most enjoyable.


And, you'll all be glad to know, my jumproping is getting better. I'm just about at a full 2 minutes of it!!! Next Saturday is my next race...The Soldier Field 10-Miler....where we wind up on the 50 yard line at the finish. Too cool, huh???

Running along Lake Michigan sounds like a great place to run. I'm going to have to try jumproping, you have me all curious now.

Lora, I am the same way with the alcohol. It's still a fun time. The run sounds like fun.

yeah too much wine can really make a run tough! I am so looking forward to more trail running.

I'm right there with you sister!...last few times I've had a glass of vino, I thought I was going to fall over. And I LOVE wine!?!?! Isn't NPR the best? Good luck on the race.

So your capacity for drinking doesn't match your taste...hmmm... that could be a good thing or a bad thing, depending how you look at it. Well, here's to your next race!

3/4 a glass? That is too funny!

Pinot Grigo... have you seen the movie Sideways?

Sounds like a nice trail run! Have a fun time this weekend’s 10-miler.
