TIART – dreams and wishes. My dream has been to run Boston. Probably for the last 2 years it has been big, but after the day of the marathon passing last year, it was something that I REALLY wanted. I’m super excited to be able to run it with Dana Farber, a charity that I strongly believe in – cancer research. I’ve had several family members who have had cancer and I’m sure most of us have as well. This is my website to raise funds – I’m 1/3 of the way there! http://www.runDFMC.org/natalied2009 .
The Runners Lounge – I found this a bit ago, but I haven’t really gotten into it. I like the idea and what they are doing. Sometimes I find it hard to navigate. I went to look for the TIART this morning and missed it. Maybe there is alot going on on the site. In any case, I think it is really cool, and I’m getting used to it. How many of you use this site, how often and what do you really like about it? I created a group Running Mamas. I don’t know what I’ll do with that. But feel free to join up!!
Wii Fit – does anyone have this thing? We got it soon after it came out. For a couple of months I was really into it and my most favorite thing was stamping the calendar. Then I stopped going on and it was a hiatus of about 4 months! I went on yesterday and it was so kind in telling me that I’ve gained 16.5 pounds and I’m overweight. And pretty much many activities that I did, the trainer biotch would say GREAT JOB! and then award me no points!!! The thing should have an option for being pregnant. I might suggest it to Nintendo or make millions from that idea. It would be a fantastic tool for pregnant women!
I swam 2 days in a row! It was nice and felt good for the most part, both days. Flipturns are kind of weird, I feel overly large, but I can swim fast and that feels good. What I like most though, is competing with someone in a lane next to me and trying to beat them which hasn’t been possible (not enough people) so it can be kind of boring. I got up to run this morning and ended up walking hardly over 2 miles in half hour. It was lame but it was something. This week is kind of a non running week, but my goal is still to get in 30 miles.
