After about a week's hiatus due to my injury and then my sister's visit, I finally ran again today. Six miles in very brisk, but sunny weather. After about three miles, one of my toes was in pain, so I quickly took off my shoe to see what was going on--it was being cut by the toenail of my little toe. So I ripped the offending nail off and proceeded on my run pain free. I've got to break through this six mile limit I've somehow set and find a new, longer route. I'm also renewing my efforts to look for some local races. I think I a 10k will be next for me.

Of course today's run will do little to counter all the crappy food I ate at the theme parks. Seriously--did you know that one of those mickey ice creams on a stick have 330 calories and 22 grams of fat?! That's just gross. And really, not so worth it. I don't even want to know that stats on the pizza, chicken fingers, etc. Blah.

Last night I saw a movie for the first time in eons. We went to "Juno". I wanted to love it and to cry and be moved. It was good, and I liked it. But it didn't make me cry. And really, all that Gilmore-Girl-like bantering just doesn't do a lot for me. But there was a lot I liked about it too, so overall I'd give it a thumb's up.

That's about it. I'm exhausted from the long week and lack of sleep. We're sad my sister left--especially PB who utterly and totally adores her. But really looking forward to tomorrow because my husband has the day off for MLK day. woo hoo!

You could always do an out and back on your six mile course to add a mile or two or three. Of course, running someplace new is cool too :-)

Runner's world has a great article on Orlando running trails this month. Will send your way. I felt the same about Juno but I cried for hours. How can that be?

If the GG bantering is too, well, scripted for you (and even if they deliver it well, who talks like that? seriously?) try Veronica Mars. The script is snarky and intelligent yet I bought every single original, sassy line. I miss that show so.

Three seasons is all you get though. Be prepared to MOURN it once you're done.
