what's going on in jd-land...

*i gave notice to a job i've had for 5+ years yesterday. topsy turvy set of circumstances, but in the long run, i had a new boss who, after just 3 months of my working there, just didn't want to lose me. so after giving notice to *that* job last week, it turns out i'm leaving the longer term one instead. i'll miss my customers and my chef, but honestly, it's time to move on if i have the chance. scary? yes. the wine bar has become a 2nd home...but life throws curve balls on top of new adventures and so there it is...

*my new iPod isn't here yet. anxiously awaiting....it's going to feel so nice that it won't be HEAVY to run with anymore!

*week one of marathon training is complete. miles run? 15. over 3 diff days.
i should have done some speedwork last night, but i bagged that for a quick 3 miler and a very impromptu dinner with friends...(which after a not so great day was hugely needed and enjoyed!) so this girl will buck up and follow protocol next week fo' sure...

*speaking of running, i did a really ballsy thing last week. i put my name in the new york city marathon lottery. dad called to say that his TV truck is going to the marathon yet again, and if i wanted to come to the marathon, i should. so i thought 'what the heck...my chances are pretty slim of actually making it in, and if i DO? well, that's a big huge hairy deal and you only live once...race day is november 1st, 2009. i won't find out until mid june (maybe even *after* i run my first marathon) if i get in...but i plan to go none-the-less and volunteer if i can! it's a MASSIVE race. 45,000. big name runners. 100,000 people try to get in...so there's my odds..i'm hoping my coach will join me since there's a free hotel room and she's been a major inspiration for me, but we'll see if that plan comes to fruition...

*the big library move starts in less than one month. holy yikes. however, the weightlifting in moving boxes, lifting, etc, should only HELP marathon training, right?

so there's the report. life keeps on pluggin' along as the season of spring is finally upon us...

Yay NYCM lottery!!!! I'm entered too!

How cool that your dad is gonna be there too, that would be so fun! I wish I could volunteer as a second option, that sounds so awesome.

NYC is still the coolest marathon I've ever run. :)
