Rock Stars Today

Today we were totally awesome. I ran so fast, 20 seconds before the run was over I vomited (3 times mind you) - then finished the run. I have the worlds most sensitive stomach - blech. Today was a 3 mile tempo run (5k for you aussie shapes), goal was 27 min (our race pace for the marathon) but I finished in 25:41 - YAY! I wish the marathon was tomorrow. The only thing that could make today better was if my weight had gone down. But still - happy day! The weather was great today too - only 71 degrees.

My goal is to finish the Chicago marathon in 4 hours - I've been doubtful - but now I totally think it is possible. For all of you Muscle Fuel connoisseurs - it tastes the same coming up as it does going down - rancid.

Sunday's distance run is an easy 10 miles and my goal is to finish in 1 hour 30 min. I'm so excited for Sunday's run. I may have to graph my distance runs to see my progress!

Suzie - Heaving three times during one vomiting session isn't considered vomiting three times. You have to stop vomiting, move on to another activity, then start vomiting again, with a significant pause between, for it be considered separate vomits. It's a fine distinction, sure, but one you should know. If each heave was considered its own vomit, then every time I've ever vomited turns into 20 vomits. Which makes for a good story, but it doesn't make it true.

Are you sure this isn't a result of your roaming tumor?

Nah, she's got colon cancer like the rest of us.

Amy, you need a real profile pic of you. Harper will be jealous if you use Cole too much - and I will be a good Aunt and tell her too.

nice blog

Okay, if the vomit comes out three times right in a row, then it's still one vomit. If you started running again and then threw up five minutes later, that qualifies as a new vomit. If you are still standing in the same place and all the vomit is going into one spot, it's just one vomit.

How's this picture? It's old, from a year ago. But it's the best one I have.

YAY - that's great pic. Now my friends know you aren't just a really smart 2 year old.

Interesting comments! Good to hear you've had a great run despite the vomits (thre times, once, whatever!).
