I have finally found a marathon and yes, it's on a Saturday, thank you.

I barely made it through ten walk/jog miles on the treadmill today. I'm hoping that means I have trained really hard up to now and need a break week...

TOMORROW I go aqua jogging. Scary! I'm afraid of water, but mostly swimming suits. I've bought many, yes many adorable and lovely and fat hiding swimming suits. I've tried on a few, swam in one, once, a very, very, very, long time ago. My PT will be there; hopefully I won't shock her too much by my irrational fears.

Oh yeah, the marathon. It's in Surprise!....Arizona. Yes, a tiny city called Surprise, AZ. Desert Classic Marathon. It seems that it's so small there is not even a course map. However, the timing and location couldn't be better, at least not for a January marathon.

And for those of you worrying. My Mom is out of surgery and back to room #3; her surgery and anesthesia went well, or so I'm told. (I'm always suspicious when the one doing the surgery is the one reporting...shouldn't I wait to see what my Mom thought???)


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you enjoy aqua jogging. I did it for months during rehab and came to enjoy it (though it takes some serious mental focus). It's a weird sensation to sweat in water.

    And I hope your mom continues to heal well from her surgery.

  2. Found you!!! :)
    E, I can't run - I think you forget that! Well, at least not marathon distance. Not til I get this %*&@ heel looked at...which is going to require either a job move (eeks, I'm one of 128 applicants for a job opening in school) or I shell out the cashola.

    Look at Anne up there commenting...I like her blog :).

    Dessert News will be fun for you. I wish I could be there. I wish I could be at any marathon.

    Good luck with the aquajogging, text me how it goes, ok?

    Sorry this is so rambling...I'm so tired. Welcome back to blogland, missed you!!


  3. Hi Elaine,
    Thanks for visiting my blog. Seems you're friends with my new friend Jill. Anyway, to answer your question, no, my calves don't hurt at all. I have no choice to get off my heel since I've fractured each one in the past two years. BTW, my record for aqua jogging in one session is 1 hour & 45 minutes. No ipod. It was kinda surreal.

  4. Hi Elaine,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday. I really glad your mom is doing well after surgery.

    And if you really do find a fat hiding swimsuit, will you let me know??
