oh boy, foot pain is back. not unbearable, but uncomfortable. and annoying. i ran loops around liberty park. not laps. when i think of laps, i think short and fast. loops are loooong and leisurely. so i ran loops. most paths were clear, but there were a few snowy patches that were super slick and slushy. wet. wet. wet. but the temps. were much nicer today.

i am so glad there are other race options besides the marathon, otherwise i would be out major bucks. i used my enitre christmas bonus for this race so i am glad it is not going entirely to waste. just a little waste and a little heartache that i won't be marathon racing. 

 i watched the end of "spirit of the marathon" again today. i am not sure why. but it's fun to watch the race at the end. it gives me chills every time. a good motivator, i guess. 

 now it's time to get started on this school stuff. i have to get back into "study mode" for the next 4 months. this could be difficult. FOCUS!!!!!!!!!!

What marathon are you running by the way? Are you still running the Painter's half (goals 2009). Also where can I get a copy of Spirit of the Marathon? Just online or is there a store that has it. I haven't seen it yet and have been eager to watch it. Hope your foot feels better soon.
