Twelve Good Things

1. My sister got to welcome her husband home from Iraq a month early last night.

2. This is a drop back week for my long run. This means I only have to run 10 miles, not 18 or 20. I highly recommend drop back weeks when you're marathon training or just doing long runs in general. Your body needs a break, just like your mind. It's like vacation, you come back stronger.

3. I get to go to a hockey game tonight.

4. I am getting Christmas shopping finished early this year.

5. I'm hanging out with my Grandma later.

6. We're having Chinese food for lunch.

7. It's in the 50's today and the sun is shining.

8. My laundry is done!

9. Just found out one of my very best friends is coming to visit in ten days.

10. Someone gave me the new Alan Jackson cd and let me tell you, I am not sure I could love it more. Even if you don't call yourself a "country fan" you should take a listen. Good stuff.

11. I leave in just 20 short days to see my nephew again!

12. Injini's are good for your feet. Serious. All you blister-getting runners ought to try. You won't regret it.

Don't tell me your coolest grandma is going to the hockey game with you?

That would blow the cool meter off the dial.

Injinji's are helpful, but I still get blisters - it must just be me.

Glad your brother-in-law came home safely. Have fun tonight!

Those are 12 good things. I have a few weeks to go before another drop back week but I'm already looking forward to it.

jacc- No, but that is a great idea!

bop- hmmm, I'm still wondering about your blister problem. I will keep trying to come up with solutions now.

rgf- glad you have drop back weeks. They're so worth it and you'll get more as your long runs increase in mileage (I hope!).

Thanks for the reminder to think about all the things that are good in a day in the life.
