Three Things Thursday

1. Sick, sick, sick - Well, as you all know, last week I was sick with asthma an upper respiratory infection that kept me sidelined and in bed almost all week. Yesterday, I woke up with what felt like the worst hang over I've had since my college graduation party...except that I hadn't been drinking the night before. I had a horrible head ache and was *sniffling* all morning (apologies if you don't get the HIMYM reference). I ate a bowl of oatmeal and 6 Ritz crackers all day...I couldn't keep anything else in my stomach. I was so sick, I wasn't even able to make the migration from my bed to my couch throughout the day. It sucked. Needless to say, I didn't take advantage of the 60+ degree weather we're having in NYC and go for an 8 mile jaunt through Central Park, but  you know what, I don't care because the planned forecast for this weekend in the DFW area is mid to high 60s!

2. Race Weekend - It's going to be warm and sunny in Texas this weekend and it'll be good to race and spend some quality time with my little sister who I think could really use having her big sister around this weekend. Texas is going to be interesting, to say the least (it always is), but I'm excited to see my family, run a lot and catch up with some old friends. It's going to be beautiful in Texas and it'll be good to spend some time away from the city. I haven't left all year! (And you know that's a lot coming from me!)

3. Reach the Beach - It's official! I've added a new race to my race calendar and I'll be running the Reach the Beach Relay in Massachusetts in May! I'm running with a fantastic group of people and I couldn't be more excited! Reach the Beach is a 200 mile relay that goes from Wachusett (who makes the best blueberry flavored beer ever) to Westport, Massachusetts in 24 hours. Ever since NUUN hosted a blog team to run Hood to Coast last year and I read everyone's recaps, I've been hooked on the idea of running a relay. The fact that it happens to be the same week that I graduate, move out of my apartment, celebrate 2 1/2 years with The Pilot, and host my favorite Brewers fan for a Mets/Brewers show down at CitiField means that the week will be a little bit crazy to say the least, but hey...crazy is the only way I know how to do things. Bring it on RTB!


  1. ahhhh you poor kid. feel better and have fun this weekend!

  2. Best of luck this weekend, Christy! Enjoy the weather, and feel better!

  3. Reach the Beach sounds awesome!!! You will have a blast. But first, I hope you feel better very soon!

  4. I've heard RTB is fun! Enjoy! And hope you're feeling better and don't get sick again!
