because i'm cool.
then yesterday, i ran 3 miles. and this morning, 3 again. i'll be getting in a 4-miler in a few days and then a five-miler and then ... 11 miles on saturday.
in other news: b turns 40 in a month. and i've been racking my brain about what to get him. see, before the whole "no job thing" happened, i was planning a trip to mexico or italy or somewhere less exotic like chicago. but now, i'm planning dinner and a few well-thought-out unwrappable surprises. i hope he likes them.
and in semi-related news: i sold like four things on craigslist to be able to afford a pair of new running shoes. i need them because the pair i bought in june has 400+ miles on them and i'm prone to stress fractures in worn-down shoes. the new shoes are supposed to arrive today. i'm hoping the rain doesn't slow UPS down.
okay, back to searching (er...trolling) the job boards.
