Some Updates....

To Begin: This is my Saturday night project. (No, not drinking, although that has been an activity other Saturday nights...) I was a domestic goddess and made blackberry cordial! 

Actually, I had put the blackberries in vodka a while ago, and finally decided to strain them and add a touch of simple syrup. It tastes fine, I guess-- don't know too much about how blackberry cordial is supposed to taste. I do know that I love putting it in the little cordial glasses-- so cute!

I also managed to strain a muscle today on the exercise bike at the gym. Of course, being me, I can't take it easy when I finally start exercising. How silly.

Big news??? NO MORE PINK CAST AS OF TOMORROW MORNING!!! I'll be in a walking cast, and I'm sure that will bring its own fun, but at least I will be able to walk around the grocery store and hold things...

Finally, I'll be volunteering at the SF One Day 12 and 24 hour races on Saturday morning with Jo Lynn and Rick. Mike, Catra and a bunch of other insane people will be running-- should be a fun day at Crissy Field!

You strained a muscle? Giiiirl!!! This is the second "injury" since your cast has been on. I can only imagine what it's going to be like with a walking cast. Remember, it is a WALKING cast, not a RUNNING cast. Okay?

Can we get a GPS device on you so we can monitor your activities?

I can't wait to go and watch other people suffer, I mean run.

Here's another "project" you might enjoy. Marinate cut-up, fresh pineapple in Keitel vodka for 1 week. Remove that pineapple and repeat with a fresh one. After 2 weeks you have this amazing pineapple infused vodka.

Ok, now back to reading about your running adventures!

Hope you recover sound and properly. Cheers, Luis

I think I was gonna ask your advice on trails, since I'm new to the area and looking for some good places to train...but then I read that comment on pineapple-infused vodka and became so distracted I forgot what I was gonna say!

Yum! I'm totally gonna try that!
