less is more

i am SO happy to be on a full-fledged weekend where we have nothing big going on for once! the only things i want to accomplish today are:

• a tempo run
• strength training
• general neatening of our apartment
• get pants hemmed
• spend time vegging out reading my new book, murakami's what i talk about when i talk about running.

much more doable than last saturday's list, plus i get to be home with josh while doing most of these things. as simple as it is, just hanging out doing not much of anything is so nice sometimes. especially since it doesn't happen so often.

tonight we are attending a UNC surgery halloween party. i am going as sarah palin -- but not like the above picture (from! i did actually purchase a replica of her signature glasses for the occasion, and i'm hoping that will pretty much make the outfit. all i need is a suit-like ensemble with an inappropriately short skirt, a large fake-looking rifle, (potentially) a moose hat, and i'm all set! hopefully we can find these items before tonight . . .

    what are your plans after the half? maybe a...marathon ;)

    I think you should go in the costume above.

  3. anon: i'm actually planning on probably doing the New Jersey marathon in may :) that said, my last 2 marathon training experiences ended badly (injuries) so we'll see what happens with this one . .

    jess: ha, it would definitely make a splash at the surgery party . . . and it would certainly go against the 'sweetness and light' pediatrics stereotype. but um, no!! i don't think i'd ever live it down.

    goatee and athletic jacket and a sled dog would be perfect for josh
