Just Some Notes

We woke up at 4:30 am on race day and found this awesome sign left by our gracious hosts, Vicki and Jeromy. We have the best friends!

1. I successfully ran the Houston Marathon this past Sunday! It was a tough race with a lot of ups and downs, but overall I'm very happy with my performance and am currently crafting the race recap to end all race recaps. I hope to have it up some time tomorrow. To tide you over until then, here's a teaser!

2. Today begins Kendi's 30 for 30 Challenge: Winter Edition. I am still planning to participate, but my laundry is currently piled up and I had a hard enough time putting on pants this morning, nevermind looking presentable enough for a photo. I will start tomorrow instead.

3. Yesterday Nathan and I both called into work sore and took part in a significantly easier marathon - that is, back to back to back episodes of Breaking Bad, which is a very entertaining, engaging and thought-provoking television show. It's about a high school chemistry teacher who, at the age of 50, discovers he has lung cancer and decides to cook and sell meth as a way to make a lot of money for his family in the short amount of time he has left. The premise is surprisingly challenging ethically and has sparked a lot of conversations between Nathan and I about the nature of right and wrong. Highly recommended!

4. More soon. For now, I have a lot of work to catch up on and a race report to write. Until then!
