As chance would have it, I am a left side sleeper. Does anyone sleep on their back? I am finding it near impossible. If I manage to get to sleep, I wake up after an hour or so. I am having to insert a little right side sleeping to save my family's sanity.

Pre-race, my 13 mile runs came in at just under 2:15. Not fast but with walk breaks I was happy with that. For the race I was hoping to beat 2:30 with the crowd and the hills. At mile 7, when I pulled a thigh muscle I was just praying to finish. Pain for 6.1 miles. I was disappointed because I wasn't tired and I was handling the hills well but the pain, ugh. I finished in 2:58:39. Under 3 hours, injured,well I can't be disappointed in that. Pain and all I enjoyed every single minute.
I think Nike did a great job with the race. I was disappointed with most of the race merchandise. Note to Nike - Not everyone has a long, thin torso and wide shoulders. Some of us are a little shorter and thicker, just saying.
I was told I would be hooked on the race and want to run it again. But I wasn't, could be the pain talking. It would be nice to have a pain free do-over. If I ran it again, I would want to be part of the Team in Training because that was where the excitement was on race day.
Probably wasn't wise to keep running but I came for the necklace and I wasn't leaving without it. I am still hobbling today but it's a small price to pay to say I finished.

Does that count as my 15 minutes of fame? I hope not, because I'd like my bout of fame to include cash and prizes.

Mister, says I can't stand it, that I have to have change all the time or I get bored.
I just think I have farm issues. If something doesn't happen soon, I may spend the majority of my Sunday here too. It's a work in progress.

Oh, and give me the option of having a receipt printed if I want one. If I am just getting chips and pop and paying cash, I don't want one. And save me the useless advertisements that look like coupons with my receipt.
