3 Things Thursday - The holy sh** edition

First I apologize for the out-of-character potty mouth. 
This is a family friendly blog after all but today is a BIG day.


Holy Sh**! 
It's snowing again.  Well, that was after the sleet but it's winter precipitation.  I'm really over winter now.  I am completely ready to begin complaining about the humidity and sweating too much.  Turning off the pellet stove and not having to clean it again would be great.  And don't even get me started on the electric bill.

Holy Sh**!
S'ghetti girl that rock-star of the academic life.  That streaker of school days to the tune of 5 years without missing a day!  That amazing nearly always straight A student. 
Forgot part of her homework for the THIRD time.
...in Math.  Her least favorite subject. 
yeah, it's booooorrrrring.

Holy Sh**!
In 8 more days I WILL be running the Bull Run Run 50 miler.  After watching my name creep painfully slowly up the wait list, it rested at #1 all evening and through the night only to be greeted this morning by an email from the RD telling me that...

Holy Sh**! 
I'm IN! 
...to the tune of...
... 50 miles....
...to just beyond what my eyes can see today...
...and in 8 more days, I'll be wondering what is just beyond the new place I find my feet...
...at the end of 50 miles.

  3. Holy shit indeed. 50 miles - awesome! Unable to ever be in the now, I find myself looking past marathons to either Triathalons, or a 50-miler. Looking forward to seeing how it goes for you. Good luck!!

    I too just had snow dumped on my nice green/brown lawn. So sick of snow! We had 3-4 inches fall in a few short hours.

  13. You did it!

    I was wondering if any competitive spirit in you feels the need to try and match your running streak to your daughter's school-going streak.
