• I understand the reason for cancelling the Tokyo Marathon but I still feel bad for everyone that was planning to go.  The runners can defer to next year’s race but they would need to pay again.  What?!?!?  It reminds me of the 2007 Chicago Marathon that was cancelled while it was still going on and runners had to pay again to run the following year.  What about the charity runners?  They would need to raise money again?  So many questions but I also understand runners being very upset about it.  Updated:  Check out the article:

My students do know how to make me smile.  These are some of the gifts I received on Friday for Valentine’s Day.  They’re truly the best!

• This was Friday afternoon after work.  I knew it was cold and there was lots of ice.  What I was not expecting is for the ice to be inside my car.  Besides waiting, how does one get rid of that?

• Remember how last week I mentioned that I had left my iPad at the gym?  Well, I also realized that I had left my water bottle.  I love mine and was bummed that I had “lost” it.  Well, I went to the gym on Sunday and my water bottle was there too.  I am happy that someone was nice enough to turn in both items.

• Honestly, I am tired of going to the laundromat to do laundry.  I’ve been doing this for almost 2 years and now am resenting it.  I cannot wait till I buy a house and have my own washer and dryer.  OK, enough complaining.  At least I have access to them and can wash my clothes, right?  I do love the smell of freshly washed clothes.

• I am loving these Facebook memories.  This is from two years ago on Sunday.  I think we were then off due to the weather?

I got home today and noticed that my iPad was not in my gym bag.  I called the gym and asked if someone had turned one in.  Sure enough someone did!  I couldn’t believe my good luck because I thought for sure someone had taken it home.  

• How funny is this?  Sure made me laugh.

• This showed up on Facebook and it was weird to see my name on the shirt.

• This made me laugh too.  Sometimes I can be stubborn too.  🙂

• On Sunday I watched an interview with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor and she talked about her book “Just Ask”.  I became so interested in it and decided to order it to read to my kids.  I’ve had it for a few days but have not had a chance to read it.  Has anyone read it?

I am not a fan of Shakira nor JLo but loved their performance at the Super Bowl Halftime Show.  I know there were a lot of criticism but I am not even going to go there.  They’re both beautiful and can put on a great performance!

• I saw this in an advertisement on Amazon for a car vacuum cleaner.  Please explain to me what the last sentence means.  Engine needs to be started before a car cleaning?  Huh?

Order now.jpg• We’ve been having a mild winter and I love it.   This showed up in my Facebook memories last week.  I remember that day.  I remember going outside to start my car and to let it run for a few minutes.  Also, I wanted to know what negative 45 degrees felt like.  Yeah, it was cold.

• I haven’t run outside since I fell.  The other day I was taking my mom to my sister’s house and I showed her exactly where I tripped.  Now you see how easy it was for me to fall?  🙂

• Anyone watching the Aaron Hernandez series on Netflix?  I started watching it on Monday and it is so good.  I remember years ago hearing about him but didn’t pay too much attention to him.

What other good series are there on Netflix?  I have a feeling I will be done with the Aaron Hernandez series this weekend and need something else to watch while on the treadmill.  Suggestions?

• Yeah, this is how I am feeling too.

• The Shamrock Shuffle is one of my favorite races.  I am looking forward to this race in a few weeks.  Interesting story about the Green Guys.

• I have an entry in the lottery.  I submitted mine months ago when I entered the early drawing but was not selected.  Tomorrow is the first day to enter through the regular lottery.  I am also going to enter the lottery for the Marine Corps Marathon.  I hope to get picked for one of these races.

• I am a good driver.  I usually do not speed and try to obey the rules of the road.  However, it does make me crazy when others don’t.  The other day I was on the left lane and there were a lot of cars in that lane.  Other drivers thought it would be a good idea to go around me and then merge into my lane.  Ugh, so annoying!

• I have a race in KS in April and then will be flying out to Boston to spectate the marathon on Monday.  I looked into flights and they’re ridiculously high.  I wonder if it will be cheaper to fly home and then fly to Boston?  Or I could just get on the last flight and arrive in Boston at 12:35 am. 


• So true but many times so hard to believe.

• This made me laugh!  I guess I don’t like to talk to people.  So many texts last year.

• My handsome little guy.  Two things he loves to do: Eat and sleep.  Just like me.  🙂
