Weekend Rambles

Ramble… to talk or write at length in a confused or inconsequential way.  It’s what I do best, so I’ll begin.

My running has been slim this week.  In case you forgot, I hurt my knee running the Lake Sammamish Half Marathon (but I finished anyway, so yay).  You can read about that herehere, and here (all 3 “here’s” take you to the same place, but if you want to read about it someplace else, try here).  So I’ve been resting and healing.

I’m kind of sad that I’m not still streaking, but the races and the bling are way more important than the streaking.  In all reality, I think I just like saying “streaking;” it sounds so indecorous (haha, I had to look that one up).  Anyway, I’ve been out on a couple of runs this past week… well, actually, one was on the treadmill, one was running laps at the soccer park, and then a good old fashioned trail run happened Friday!  By the end of my run on Friday, I felt I had worked all the nigglies out, but we shall see what Sunday’s long run brings.

Four weeks from today, I’ll be running the SLC Half-Marathon.  I really don’t time for the nigglies right now.

New subject… know anyone who is passive aggressive?  I liken being passive aggressive to being in junior high school… there’s not an ounce of maturity associated with passive aggressive tendencies, regardless if the person is 60 years old.  I’m having the extreme displeasure of dealing with one of those right now.  I have no choice but to completely ignore her responses and take what she says at face value, and only face value.  I get the hidden meaning behind the things she says, but then if I acknowledged any of it, I would be feeding the beast.  Not gonna do it. Unfortunately this is not a social relationship, so I can’t just put the good old block on her or “unfriend” her.

James and I just had this conversation (please re-read definition of rambling):

JAMES:  I think I’ll go for a bike ride.

ME:  How far are you going?

JAMES:  Probably about 10 miles, maybe 20, but probably 10.

ME:  (singing) Your ass is gonna hurrrrrrrt…

ME:  And you’re going to run after that?

JAMES:  Yes.

ME:  I think I’ll go take a nap.

Jackie over at A Cooking Pot and Twisted Tales is hosting a weekend brunch link-up!  Be sure to stop by and join the party.  You’re bound to meet lots and lots of new and interesting bloggers over there!  It’s a great way to grow your blog AND to help out other bloggers!  Great friendships form here!  Remember… we’re all in this together!

I’ll finish off my ramblings with some pictures I took the other morning on my way to work.  It was so gorgeous… the sun was shining and there was frost on the ground.  I just can’t get over the beauty of this place… it’s everywhere you look!
