Quick Post - Bullet style!

Bulleted post today since I have a lot of little things to say but not much time to say them:

  • I finally unsubscribed to the “Runner's World Magazine Daily News” feed. I usually try to read every blog post that comes across my reader every day (~50 or so among my ~65 or so feeds… Although, I am horribly behind as I type this) but they were spaming WAY too much. I think that I’ve seen the “healthy recipes” post about 30 times. I keep commenting that I like everything I eat covered in either gravy or karo syrup. I guess they didn’t get the hint.
  • I was in Virginia Beach where it was surprisingly cold. The crappy thing is that I did not get to go to the beach or see any of the city. I did however get to see the inside of a Panera Bread. I NEVER get to see those! Orrrr, maybe I eat there like once a week. :) That reminds me of one of my favorite quotes: “If a guy isn’t predictable, you are thinking too hard”
  • I had to laugh at the maid staff at the hotel where I stayed. After my 9 mile run on Wednesday, I did the hotel version of an ice bath which involved me sitting on the edge of the tub with the shower head spraying on my foot/knee. Well, since I was just sitting there for 10 minutes or so, I decided to read the paper which got super soaked by the splashing of the shower. I forgot to throw away a section of the wet newspaper when I was finished, so the maid staff kindly put it on the back of the toilet for me. Now, as much as I appreciate the effort, I don’t think that I need a completely soaked sports section the next time I spend some 1 on 1 time w/ the toilet.
  • I am SOO glad that my foot troubles seem to be behind me. I was really nervous that I was going to have to take off a significant amount of time, I’d get depressed, and I’d change from following running blogs to following Clay Aiken blogs. Whew, dodged the bullet for now.
