What Can I Say, I AM Over The Top!

My world has been one gigantic cluster for the last three weeks, and I mean that in the nicest possible way. It started with the swine flu, then resting up for the marathon, running the marathon, and now I have had one crazy emotional and exciting week. Big news in my world I'll be able to share with you all Monday! Also, I think I'm now fully recovered from running 26.2 miles. This is where we sign up for yet another race. Running Buddy Selena and I have decided to run the 13.1 Series Los Angeles Half in January. Heaven forbid we didn't have another race to train for! What would happen? I'm excited it's going to be a half, I think I'm taking a break from the full thing for a while. Wow, this is a really random post today, huh? I guess this is what happens when you don't post for three days. It will never happen again!!!
Adding to my excitement, is an award from one of my best friends in the blogosphere, and I hope in real life someday soon!
