well, i just signed up for the lottery for the cherry blossom 10 miler. if i get in, it will be my first race since having my baby and my last before i turn 35 (my birthday is exactly one week after race day). i pushed “register” and then sent it off to cyberspace and the powers that be. i am hoping with all of my heart that i get a spot. i love this race and the energy that goes along with it. even though it’s always super-crowded and crazy, being a part of it always makes me happy.
other news – today i can start saying “i am due next month” since it is the first of december! even though i am not due til the end of january (the 28th), for some reason saying my due date is next month is really fun to say and i am able to convince myself that it is closer than it really is. whatever works to keep me positive …. i find that looking on the bright side of things is definitely the right perspective for me these days, and always.
