Just rambling on

Today started early with a nice run with Karen and my brother, Wally. After the run, I went to the gym and did some pull-ups and some upper body weight work. I just love the way it makes my body feel. I am surprised at how empowering getting strong is.

Matt and I went to his Mom's house for a late afternoon lunch with several of his family. We went to see their friends Alpaca farm and was promptly spit on by a mad Alpaca. The smell of her spit was just gross and of course everyone their just thought that was the funniest thing!

I got an email for The Coastal Challenge today updating me on the race. It is really exciting to read all the new information. Apparently there will be people competing from at least 8 different countries and I am sure it is going to be a total blast. I want to be as prepared as I can, so if anyone has any ideas on how I can be ready, please don't hesitate to contact me. I have never been to Costa Rica and I have never done a stage race so I am quite a rookie as you can see. My friends Florencia, Leslie and Suzanna will be training for the Hurt 100 in January so I will have plenty of opportunities to train during the early winter months.

Tomorrow I am up at the butt crack for an early start at the Hospital. It's best if I hit the hay early. Did I mention that we got a new bed? Y E A H !!!!!!!! You can bounce a bowling ball on it, but so far we love it. It is looking mighty comfortable right about now, so I will end this boring post. I hope you all have a nice start to the week. See you on the flip side.

My foot-- well, it's in a pink cast... but other than that, things are fine.

Costa Rica is great-- I went there in 2007 and loved it! We spent our time on the southern Pacific Coast, where the race is supposed to be run-- gorgeous country and really friendly people. You are going to have a wonderful time!
