Good morning commuters March snow

So... Which pair will I wear for my next half marathon? Brooks adrenaline 12 or  Mizuno wave Nirvana 8? Just got home from base, still in his fatigues, cuddling the kitty.

upload Good morning, Chicago

Sunrises, snow, running, my husband and my cat. My life is thrilling.

March’s Goal:

Take Olive to the vet. Fail. I’m a terrible cat mom.

Progress on yearly goals: 

Don’t spend more than $500 on races for 2013. I didn’t register for any races during February. Still at $338 for 2013’s races.

Run 1,300 miles for the year. RunningAhead.com tells me that I am now 79.2 miles behind my pace bunny. Oops.

Weekly strength workouts. I did seven total.

Move out of my parents house. Yeah yeah. Fell off the tracking-all-expenses bandwagon. But we’re still making slow progress overall.

Read 12 books. I read two!! Overachiever over here. (I also started taking the train to work again, it’s easy to find time to read when you’re spending four hours/day commute via public transit.) Anyway, I read Wise Blood and Like Water For Chocolate

April’s Goal: 

Take Olive to the vet. Let’s try this again.
