Just Wing It.

Somehow, I'm guessing that's not going to catch on as Nike's new slogan.  But it seems to have become mine.

This Sunday is what every running Portlander waits for:  Shamrock!  Or more specifically, the really cool bottle opener medal that comes with Shamrock.

I haven't been training.  At all.  I think I've run three times ? since September.  Clearly going with the "I'm well rested" strategy. 

In my secret heart of hearts, I'd love it if I could PR this race.  Never going to happen in a trillion years, but hey -- everybody needs a dream, right?

In 2010, my first year to run the 15K, my time was 2:09:18.  For 2011, 2:17:02.  Last year I did much better at 2:11:42. 

My C goal this year is just to finish the damn race.  My B goal is to beat my worst time at this race of 2:17:02.  My A goal?  PR baybee!!!

This will be me after Shamrock.

Yes, dream it!  Dream it like Ru!!

Speaking of kittens, I weighed them this weekend to see if they were the reason for the strained muscle in my shoulder.  If they weren't, they should be:  Josie came in at 13.2 lbs while Rudy topped the scales at 14 lbs.  Don't let anybody tell you that steroids are bad for kittens.  Seriously though, they're not even a year old yet.  Hell, they're not even 11 months old yet.  I haven't even been feeding them as much canned food as I used to (no particular reason other than I'm just lazy).  Maybe it's water weight.

I'll be back next week to let you know whether I survived Shamrock!
