Happy Thursday Dingleberries,
How many of you caught today's Monkey Butt post? Thanks for the comments on it so far. He really is an awesome artist to be able to draw like that and seems like he lives a pretty cool blog with the things he shares. Cool stuff.
Po Po Pokey wasn't feeling very well this morning, tugged on my heart strings and I called the boss to beg him to let me bring her in to work with me, at least for a bit. It worked. we hung out at work until 12ish, only lost about 3 hours of work this week that way. It didn't hurt quite as bad when I printed my paycheck anyways. She's feeling better. I'm glad!
So let's move on to what everyone is dying to hear.
July 4th, 2012
I got my Peachtree Road Race 2012 t-shirt!
Let me add, it was a fun race. I wasn't quite as worried once it started about dying so much. Which has to be a good sign. I was worried for a few minutes, because I thought I was having some of that reoccurring coughing thing. I didn't cough once while I was running. Yays!
My aunt tells me she's so proud of my time for this race. I can't say I finished on top or even in that good of time . There was no way I could RUN 6.2 miles. I haven't trained AT ALL you know! So I jogged, according to my pedometer I was only going like 3.6 mph. Terrible I think, but whatever.
I think I've come up with I did this as the accomplishment for quitting smoking. I actually enjoyed it a little too. I think I want to do some more and after seeing all the kids and the wonderful experience. I'm considering putting Pokey in next year with me. It will affect my timing, but that's OK! It will be fun.... I think.
It really was a life altering event that I will definitely be joining again. Plus some others are coming up soon as well, some that I think Pokey would fit into. If I can talk her into it that is!
So there ya have it. I did it. You can strike through all that last will and testament thing I did, for now. I must say that a day later, I feel really terrible. my legs hurt sooo bad, this is why you train for a run like that. OK OK so I don't always make the best of sense! Also, I did something to my toe. I think possibly I managed to stub my toe nail down under the skin... I don't know, but very painful muscles and 3 blisters and this toe nail thing is really taking it's toll on me! lol. GO figure right?! Like a lion with a brier or something. UGH
THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR ALL THE LOVELY WORDS, THOSE OF MOTIVATION AND THOSE WELL WISHINGS. I LOVE YOU GUYS, YOU JUST DON'T KNOW!
I DID IT AND YOU CAN ALL BE PROUD BECAUSE YOU HELPED PUSH ME THERE!

Well we've gone all day with some heat from hell. Nothing new there! Now it's POURING the rain. With lightening and thunder and awfulness. Just glad Pokey isn't awake (and doesn't wake up) because she will have a fit over this one. She always does!
Girl hates some storms and if they have their way (the storms that is) it will keep me up all night. ha ha.
So I'mma wrap this one up, with one last thing... hehe.. Enjoy!
Hang in there!
