Running: On Today's To Do List

Today . . .

After I wait for Mike to get home from getting the space heaters since our furnace died last night. . .

After I go to the office to finish my performance review self-evaluation that's due on Monday . . .

After I take Andrew to get materials to make his paper plate Snowman for school (Be Creative! the school instructions read) . . .

After I buy stuff for 18 kindergarten Star Wars ("I want really cool ones, Mom") goodie bags for Andrew's birthday party at school . . .

After Mike and I try to make a dent in the numerous laundry piles throughout our house . . .

After I locate one adult white sock (read: clean with no holes) and one colored child sock for Andrew's other school project (should be easy, we're always finding sock singles) . . .

After I fill out Andrew's hot lunch order for school . . .

After Mike and I thoroughly examine Andrew's "Friday Folder" to see what else our kindergartner has due next week . . .

After I order the cake for Andrew's birthday party . . .

After I call Aunt Peggy in Iowa with the belated thank you for our Christmas gifts . . .

After I pack up Aunt Mary Lou's Christmas gift for shipment to California with a note apologizing that it's so late . . .

After we give the kids baths and put them to bed . . .

After I try to figure out what on earth am I going to wear to work tomorrow . . .

. . .then I will run!

I am laughing so hard at your 'about me' section!

Hi, I'm Andrea and I found you via Runners World online through a Chicago thread. I'm trying to decide between NYC and Chicago for my first marathon this year! I was actually in training to do Disney this year, but injured myself during the NYC 1/2 marathon and had to drop out. :(

Oh well, Chicago and NY are bigger and better, right? :)

oh and duh... I felt compelled to post b/c i'm also a mom of 2 who sort of lept into the world of marathon training when I thought... hey, that'll help me shed my baby weight (and yes, my eldest is almost 5... no real excuses for that)! :)
