I went to the wine shop in my town, telling the owner that I can't seem to find anything that compares with Santa Marguerita Pinot Grigio, and he recommended Bracco Pinot Grigio. So, I've saved it for the last episode of Sopranos. Pasta and a new Pinot---what a way to go!!
Saturday was hills again. But this time running up them!! My girlfriend, Anne, decided to join me, and since we're planning on running the Marathon together, I was thrilled to have her with me.
She's the one that helped me pr 1 1/2 yrs ago at a zero degree 5 mile race with crazy winds. She's done the Chicago Marathon 13 times!! Well, she kept me running those hills yesterday--six times!! She LOVES to talk---was great in helping me ignore any discomfort. SO--I asked if she would pace me on my 50 miler in February. SHE SAID YES!! I'm sooooo thrilled!!
Sunday was my yoga class and weights. I'm feeling stronger and stronger. I'm really enjoying this training, it's great to believe that I'm really on the right track with my training. Coach Lisa has been quite the inspiration.
I've become so narrow with my reading choices. Seems this past year I keep reaching for the books that are about running. I'm in the middle of reading Amazon.com: Under an Equatorial Sky: Books: Rebekah E. Trittipoe and Amazon.com: Deep Survival: Who Lives, Who Dies, and Why: Books: Laurence Gonzales and then to really top it all off, I LOVED watching Amazon.com: Running on the Sun: DVD: Gabriel Flores (II),Lisa Smith,Jack Denness,Nick Palazzo,Eric Clifton,Ephraim Romesburg,.... Am I addicted to this sport or what???!!!!
