Hi!  I'm here!  Stop all your "Whoa, where'd she go's" and your "Wait, who is this again's" and just enjoy my post!

Florists are so so so extremely nice!  I think one day I want to retire and become a florist!  I have had to call for flower deliveries twice today and both ladies I talked to were over-the-top nice to me!  I'd probably have to learn how to "arrange" the flowers, but maybe they'd just let me be really nice to people on the phone.  It really made my day (twice) to talk to these ladies.  So, thanks, Janet and Emily!

I've got a bad back.  Most of have heard my complain about it already, but it's not good.
In fact, I'm pretty sure I complained about having back pain last time I blogged!  But most of you can't remember that far back!  So, here I am again, complaining of the same problem.  I've deduced that it is a combination of sciatic nerve issues along with back spasms.  It's hard to sit, stand for long periods of time, sleep in a comfortable position, and get up from the couch.  BUT, I went for a 2 mile run for the first time in 2 weeks today and so far so good.  Ask me again tomorrow though!

Speaking of running, since that's really what this blog is about (hence the no blogging, since I haven't been running much), my last race this year is in 6 weeks: Vegas RnR!  Now, I know most everyone out there had issues with the Vegas race last year, but I had an absolute blast!  It was so much fun and I looked forward to doing it again this year.  The best thing about the race this year is it ends right in front of my hotel!  This means I can start drinking even quicker than I did last year!

That's enough for this post...just like starting up training again, I don't want to over do it the first time back!
