As hard as this training is and as much as I don't like it...I will run a half-marathon.
I'm glad that Monica's foot is getting better; I'm looking forward to jogging with her again.

So, I ran for my first 10k race yesterday (Labor Day). I've only been running for a few months, but I'm really starting to enjoy it. It brings out my competitive nature and I'm starting to see a little difference in my bod - for the better. This was my first time to actually run more than 5 miles; it was pretty hard. Monica was there to show me some support and caught some pictures and video afterwards. Check out this video...

So Chrissy is uncharacteristically strong in her arms and she is a great arm-wrestler. Please note how she pulled my arm as close to her as possible. Also, in my defense I didn't mean to stand up a little and did sit back down before she cheated and bowled me over. I'm not a sore loser or anything.

I'm planning on running a 5K at the end of June with Genessa, Kara, Michelle, Lacey and Lauren. It's going to be so much fun to run with these girls, I can't wait. Well, I won't actually be running with the first 3 'cause they're kinda crazy fast runners. Lacey and I will be sticking together 'cause we've been training together. As a matter of fact, we just went over 3 miles about an hour ago. I feel pretty dang proud of myself right about now. Not so much in the morning when I can't move, but now it's a great feeling.
I talked to Chrissy last night and now I miss her. We ran by their old house today and there were some strange looking vehicles in the driveway. I wanted to tell them to get out of my friend's house but that would have been really weird. So I did not do that.

I got lots of cool stuff from Ikea the other day so that's awesome. Don't worry, Chrissy I'll post some pictures.

P.S. How is it possible to get lost when you have a GPS? Dallas is large and my mom is hilarious.

To be held accountable I'm listing the 3 main things that I want to accomplish this year (maybe I'm being over zealous - but I don't think so)
1. Get in-shape (exercise at least 3 days per week and eat healthy: no more Dr. Peppers)
2. Learn to play golf (practice at home, go to driving range at least twice per month, and play at least once per month)
3. Get better at playing the bass guitar (practice at least 2 hours per week..I can do that right?)
Okay, so if you are reading this blog, you are hereby obligated to ask me how I'm doing. Thanks.

Last night, Trista, Ray and I went to see Flamenco Vivo at the Walton Arts Center. Wow, it was awesome. Those people can dance like nobody's business. The music was great, too. The musicians are so tight; I can't imagine how many hours of practice they put in for this. In my online Music Appreciation class, we have to go see 8 different productions and write papers on them, so this will be one of them. Our professor said he would be there and would buy anyone coffee afterward who wanted to discuss the show. I had never met him before 'cause it's an online class but I knew what he looked like. Tell me why our tickets were right next to his. Out of all the seats in the place, we were right by him. The cool part was that he had binoculars and that helped since we were literally on the back row of the balcony. The only bad part was that I couldn't talk and be disrespectful. Shucks. Just kidding, it was so good I didn't really want to talk.
We went over to Common Grounds for come coffee and cake with my professor. Nobody else showed up but we had a good time.

What in the world?
We were in the "Icebox" and it was so cold just a few feet down that we could see our breath.
Heck yes, I went in a cave. There were bats.
Aww, Josh and Chrissy.
Aww, a giant and a little person.
We really do like each other...see?
And the glory of the lord shone upon Ray's face.
I felt like a hobbit in Middle Earth.
I like caves, they're fun times.
P.S. I need all of Josh and Chrissy's family to stop hating on Arkansas and encouraging their unrest here. They will be back in Ohio soon enough, no need to pour salt on my wounds. I greatly appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

"Seeing that I have a very little musical background I found all theterms differently than I have heard before. I have just heard the basicinformation. However, with my background in literature I found the waythey identified a lot of the terms similar to sentences very easy tofollow. Throughout all of the reading I found myself trying to carrythis parallel to the structure of a sentence as very benefical to myunderstanding of the elements. One of the things that caught myinterest was the rhyme power just because it reminded some much ofdifferent types of poetry specifical iambic pentameter "
Moral of the post...Don't brag about having a background in literature if you don't know how to use correct grammar. Seriously.

We went over to Brian and Michelle's house on Saturday and they invited our puppy to come along.
Here is a sneak peek at Wrigley and Moses' first play date.... Moses gave Wrigley the ride of his life. Yes, he enjoyed it. From the looks of it....they don't like girls, but they really do.
They actually played well together. Their parents were proud.

10 minutes later...
Our dog Wrigley otherwise known as Wrigs McGinty or Barkey von Wrigley is really cool. Not so much today though. I think I'm going to take him to the pound and let him see where he's headed if he doesn't stop EATING TOILET PAPER!!!

So far I have no clue what my major is. Possibly music or literature.
