So I was..

grateful for all the supportive comments from my crank.kee post yesterday.  I'm so lucky to have so many amazing people in my life that are supportive and make me laugh and kick my ass (coughMattycough) and also those that will bring me wine at the drop of a hat.. I'd say they are my favourite but that's not true, I'd love all of you even more if you'd bring me wine too.  haha! just kidding.  I'm not sure if there is anything more important than having good people around you.

hyperventilating when I registered for the Mississauga half marathon on May 15.  What's his name, that's Missssissssawwwga.  You should also wink after you say it and point your 'gun fingers'.

hyperventilating more when I registered for the Scotiabank Waterfront half marathon on Oct 16. What's his name, that's wwwaaaaattttee... oh nevermind

getting a brown paper bag while reading the confirmation emails I got from both.  I realize there was a lot of hyperventilating going on but these are my first ones (half marathons that is) and I hate running and not only do I hate running but I suck at it so there is good reason for the hyper and the ventilating yes?

excited about some things happening at the office but I can't go into detail here.  I have my fingers and my toes crossed.

interested to see if this 'preset' publish works.  I'm typing this on Tuesday.  (it didn't)

looking forward to bike certification this weekend and to see Max and Dana AND to have some yummy food and wine.

hoping I don't injure myself or anyone else during #bikeschool.  (haha, see what I did there) 
relieved to see my chiro and have my back adjusted, the chairs at work are killing me.

surprised to find out from him that I should still be elevating and icing my ankle, I did not know this.

nervous to buy the 'wobble board' he recommended which is supposed to strengthen my ankles but we all know me.  Who's betting hospital visit?

loving my new magicJack.  I really hope it's compatible with MAC.  It would kind of suck when I get my MAC computer if it didn't work and I didn't have a phone anymore, a phone I pre-paid for 5 years of service.  It was a sale, you know I can't say no to a sale.  If you want the number, shoot me a note.

swiped this from Mandy's blog, sue me
requesting that you vote for Bailey.
Vote for him everyday. He's a handsome feller and I bet he's pretty cosy and warm on these cold days and he sits all nice for a treat.  So go on, do it for me, go vote for him (everyday until he wins please)  

annoyed at blogger for screwing up my page up there although it could just be me.

That's all I got...

Being surrounded by good wine? Wait! Being surrounded by good people with good wine!

Katie said...

You don't need to hyperventilate! I'm sure you're going to do just fine! When I first starting running, I really hated it, but now it's a passion. A passion that has been going on for 19 years and I'm only 31...

JohnP said...

oh that wobbleboard idea sounds great! Yeh, you might want to Adena-proof the room first. Maybe you get frequent flyer miles or something for hospital visits? Just tryin' to look on the bright side :) lol

Matty O said...

HAHAHA At JP. Agree with him, either wrap yourself or the surrounding room in bubble wrap prior to wobbling on the wobble board.

You should be icing and elevating for a week! Sigh, when will you learn?!

And just like that we have a half marathon runner on our hands.

Good luck!

Daryl said...

You'll be great at those races - it will be a cakewalk while and after your training for 70.3 :-)

Pamela Hutchins said...

Good for you, registering for the half mary's! Good luck!

Ian said...

The waterfront half is awesome! I'll start making the signs for the cheering section now.
Have a great weekend, I'll let you practice what you learned on my bikes. Haha.

Max doesn't know it yet, but he's excited to see you too! (After the car ride, anywhere he stops that isn't a vet is a good place to visit.) ;)

I'm looking forward to seeing you again too. :)

Scotiabank Waterfront half marathon is on my birthday, how freaking cool is that!!! In my favorite city MI-SSSSSSSSSSSSS-I-SSSSSSSSSSS-UGGIE-GWANANANAAAAAA!!!!

Jason said...

So I was wondering if you could balance a glass of #wine on the bobble board? If so, then purchase it.

I #love the fact that you #hashtag #bikeschool. That is just so #smart of you.

I'm just stoked that I know someone who can cross both their fingers and their toes at the same time. Amazing for sure.
You will do awesome at the events. Great job on submitting them and keeping the hyperventilating to a minimum.
Thank you for being such a great friend and always making me laugh through your tweets. You are an amazing woman. Keep the posts coming, they make my day every time I read them.

It should work on a mac and you'll kick ass at the mississauga half marathon. Great run, most of it is down hill.

She said I need a goal said...

OCP, I knew I liked you! People + wine has always been my preference.

Katie, I hope one day to have your passion for running, I'd take even a teeny bit of it.

JohnP, thanks, I love it when you show me the silver lining. Haven't seen you guys in ages, hope Peterborough registration opens up soon so I can come visit.

Matty, you coulda told me that LAST week.. But now I know.

Daryl, if only I believed you. :-)

Pamela, thank you sunshine!

Ian, cheering section? Why aren't you registering with me? I'm going to take loads of pics at the course, I hope it makes for a good blog.

D, yay you + Max + food + wine = awesome

What's your name, the Waterfront half is in Toronto, not nearly as much fun to say but it's a beautiful course along the, wait for it, waterfront.

Jason, you are the #king of #hashtag and I #wanttobelikeyou

Cyclist, thanks so much for the lovely comment. You are most certainly NOT a spammer!! You make my day with your tweets and your blog as well.

B, I really hope it works. I need to buy my MAC soon!! Now I'm thinking about getting the laptop instead of the desktop, I can't decide.
