1. I am stoked to now be wearing these kick ace shoes. I'm easing myself into them and started with a short 4 miler on Tuesday. I am happy to report that they are now sufficiently muddy, as trail/fell shoes should be. I am saddened to report that my aspirations of being a foot model have been squashed at my blackened, half on/off toenails.
2. Yesterday, I was offered a new job and I've accepted! My stomach has been a wreck all week: first about having the interview, next about having the second interview, then about calling to hear yea or nay, about having to tell my current boss and finally about making sure the new person is trained. I am really excited about the new opportunity, but am such a sap and feel bad about leaving where I am at currently. Then to make me feel even worse, my boss said yesterday "I feel like I am losing my best friend." I've been thinking about this over and over again and am a bit bewildered that he would say such a thing, as yes I do know most everything there is to know about him, but he really knows next to nothing about me except the day to day exterior facade of JP. It actually makes me a bit sad on so many levels, sorry to be a downer.
3. On a fun note, Funderson, Uneeda and I are going on a Pagosa Springs Marmot ADVENTURE! weekend. They will be running the Turkey Tracks 1/2 trail marathon and I'll tearing it up at the full trail marathon. The race is sponsored by the local brewery, Pagosa Springs Brewing Company. So, it should be a great girlie weekend with an exciting report to follow.
|Funderson and I have heard recently of a new fad of sending marmot photos to other people, so this is my gift to you all via her of what looks to be an angry yellow-bellied marmot.|
