Big Dreams in the Big City

Life has been running away with me lately. In fine Eric and Rob tradition, here's a quick bulleted update:

  • I got the cold, I got over the cold.
  • I'm going on week two of easy runs, and I feel rested and great.
  • We went to a charity auction with friends.
  • As a result we have a fabulous meal to look forward to with those same friends.
  • We went on a wine and art walk the next day, with some of the same friends.
  • I used 7 out of 8 of my wine tickets. I'm not a real wine fan, I tried only whites.
  • Don't ask me about the wines I tasted. Hoever, you can ask me about the food at each stop - that I remember!
  • My favorite was the triple-chocolate-mocha mini cupcake.
  • Our new carpets are in, the house looks really good. (One of these days I'll get pictures for you).
  • Work is overwhelming at the moment.
  • Finally, we're taking the red-eye to DC this weekend to knock another race off my dream list...
The Marine Corp Marathon!

Did anyone say triple-chocolate-mocha mini cupcake? Mmmmhhhh! Now look what you've done, I'm lusting for sugar again when I'm trying to be good the week before the big marathon. Triple-chocolate-mocha mini cupcake. Yum. triple-chocolate-mocha mini cupcake. Yummy. Triple-choc......

Have a great time in DC. The MCM is one for the memory books. You will enjoy it, I can almost garantee(sp?) it.

I'm not sure where you are staying, but I recommended Jaleo post race as celebration if you like tapas. check out www.jaleo.com
