I should be sleeping. But I'm not. I am shoving some Pirate Booty in my face...but it's oh so good. If you've ever tasted the crack that is Pirate Booty, you know what I mean.
Tomorrow brings the last chance for a run at altitude before Imogene Pass, so I am hitting Land's End Road with my friend Jen who lives an hour south from me. Prepare to hear about how I sucked wind for 20-22 miles in some future blog entry-this is one area where I just cede all competitiveness and just enjoy the view. Although..I must admit that a little part of me wants to improve upon last year's Imogene. I'll see how it goes. Jen's the runner who is totally money and doesn't even know it so I know it's good that I'm running with her tomorrow on the Grand Mesa and not lollygagging around the riverfront trail for the umpteenth time.
In other exciting news, my maid-of-honor from my wedding will be here to visit for a few days starting late Sunday. She was my buddy when we were both students at K-State who would essentially shame me into meeting her at the rec center for a workout if I was on the verge of flaking...and of course, I'd do the same for her. It was one of those mutually beneficial friendships. I'm stoked to see her....she's a PT in the Kansas City area, and has also recently taken up a little running, so I think we'll be doing some hiking, and other fun outdoor stuff when she arrives. We just realized that we haven't seen one another since a mutual friend's wedding in 2001, so it's truly been a LONG time. It will be awesome to catch up.
