friday +/-

Oh, but this has been a long week. Between my lingering cough, a lull at work, and obsessing over marathon training I'm ready for one long nap. It's a good thing today is Friday! Here're your good and bad for week, starting with the bad so's to end on a better note.

- My lingering cough. When I take deep breaths, there is a distinct wheeze down in my lungs. Also, I sound like a seal. After much concern from my co-workers, I made a doctor's appointment for Monday.
- I already miss Digital Projects. Wah, wah, wah.
- My social life has taken a dive, what with me being sick and all my friends being pregnant. Let me tell you, you do NOT want to be the person that gives a pregnant lady a chest cold. Bad karma, ahoy!
- Howard Zinn died on Wednesday. I heard him speak last year and was amazed at his eloquence, intelligence and compassion. He'll be greatly missed.

And now for the good.

+ I ran 20 miles, which was awesome and made me feel excited for and confident about the Austin Marathon all over again.
+ We finished season one of Battlestar Galactica, and then promptly ran out and bought seasons 2 and 2.5. We're addicted, y'all.
+ Tomorrow, Nathan, Amy and I will be taking part in the first ever Adventure Race at SFA. It's a short race (3 miles of running, 2 miles of biking, and 40 yards of swimming) and I'm looking forward to it. Hopefully this will be the first of many!
+ The weather this week has been pretty awesome. I love being able to comfortably run outside again, and Seamus loves going to the park after work.

Happy Friday, and here's to a weekend full of spontaneous adventures and quality times. See you Monday!
