This is my version of the Longoria's something pattern. I really like it! I added the sleeves for the winter but now looking back they need to be attached or have buttons to clip on or off. This way they slide down and are more annoying then anything else. The best way to wear this is with a long sleeve shirt underneath or short sleeve when it's nice out.

San Francisco was absolutely beautiful. Check out the Pics! I had a great time! The race itself was the most scenic one i've done to date. My time ended up being 2:09, which for not running for 3 weeks and considering the hilly course was pretty good. I felt good throughout the race, my leg didn't start bothering me until the last two miles. Nike puts on a very organized race and the Tiffany necklace is definitely worth it. I was very happy with my performance and would love to do this one every year if it wasn't so expensive to go to San Francisco. I will definitely try to go back at some point.
Napa was amazing! The wine and the views were spectacular.

San Francisco

This Friday I'm off to San Francisco for the Women's Nike Half Marathon. I'm so excited to go back to California I just can't wait. My left calf muscle still hurts and i haven't been running at all since the Akron Marathon but I think I'll be ok. I'm just going out there for a nice easy run with no pressure for time and to get my Tiffany Necklace. For those that don't know in San Francisco instead of a regular medal at the finish there are firemen dress in tuxedos handing out blue boxes which contain especially designed necklaces by Tiffany & Co. And this is why I wanted to do this race.

Joining me in SF will be my good friend from high school and some of her friends, it's going to be quite interesting I'm sure. But the best part is that we're going to the wine country on Monday and we'll be visiting the Rubicon Estate (Frances Ford Coppola). Awesome!!

New Glove

I knitted this new glove, so far i only have one. I can't get this pattern to work right going the other direction for the right hand. I'm almost at the point of giving up so i might have to knit the other glove the same way and the pattern will go in the same direction on both hands. Will that look bad? Oh well, i still love this pattern!

Today i had a doctors appointment in the morning. When i came in and sat down in my chair i felt something on my leg. I rolled my chair back and this thing was tied to it!
(it's about 3 feet wide)
It scared the crap out of me and i screamed bloody murder, my heart was pounding and i broke out in a massive sweat. Of course everyone thought it was hilarious. Last thing you want to see is a nasty furry thing under your desk. So it's on, i have to get them back! All bets are off!
