I surrendered to the temptation of having instant access to my media files. I couldn't resist adding some music to my three hours daily commute, half of which involves sitting on the train. I couldn't keep my hands away from the sexy white thing.

I joined the iPod cult yesterday.

St. Louis Marathon: 10 Weeks Ahead

Plan: 20 miles; Actual: 20.5 miles
Yes, I met my goal for the week, but I wasn't as easy as it seemed. I fought a constant battle in my head to stay focus.
Monday: 3.1 mile run on treadmill. Too fast. Too soon.
Tuesday: shoulders; abs
Wednesday (evening): 4-mile run on treadmill. Steady but restless.
Thurssday: Off
Friday: 5-mile run on treadmill. Good steady pace. 42:30 minutes.
Saturday (evening): workout with Dr. K (chests / triceps / abs)
Sunday: 8.4-mile run to Kelly Drive, Strawberry Mansion. Negative splits (a feast I often talked about but rarely achieved).

Indian Summer

We're in the middle January in Pennsylvania, and it's t-shirt and shorts weather. I come out of my winter hiatus for a run on Kelly Drive this afternoon. It is a sweet way to kick off my next marathon training program.

Boyfriends come and go, and good friends help you pick up the pieces and and get on with your life. Chris (pictured left) has quickly become a good friend of mine the past six months, after we became Center City neighbors. He entertains me, includes me in his vast social activities, and introduces me to new people.
Here's to you, Mr. Chris. I know you read my blog. Thanks for everything you've done for me!
