5K fail and rooting for Boston!

My first 8k/5K of the season for me...was a no show. I woke up Saturday morning to freezing rain and cold weather...and decided my bed was a much better alternative. It would have been different if I didn't still have on this big ridiculous sling, but I didn't want to get it soaking wet and be screwed the rest of the day with a soggy sling:/
Well...tomorrow is the big day. I finally go back to the drs and am hoping that I get the clearance to resume somewhat of a normal life. I'm still not sure if I'm going to be able to go to work, but I really need to lace up my running shoes and get moving. Back to back half's are right around the corner and I have some serious work to do. I did finally find some new running shoes...aren't they bright??

I can't wait to lace these puppies up and take them for a spin!
I was super excited when I woke up today because of all my fellow friends and bloggers running Boston! Then I looked out the window and saw roughly 3 inches of snow. WTF? So I decided to barricade myself in the house, made a cup of french vanilla coffee with vanilla-Carmel creamer and settled on the couch to snuggle with Jack and watch the Boston race on my laptop.

WIN! It's been such a nice relaxing morning. I'm super proud of our American runners...I seriously thought Desiree was about to pull of something CRAZY!! 2Nd is pretty amazing! I can't wait to read every one's race recaps...
