But because Miguel doesn't know how to sit still for very long we eventually started in on household maintenance stuff - organizing toys, clearing out random piles of paper. Then it was nearly time to head out to birthday party #1. Our neighbors' son Thomas first birthday. There were lots of snacks and pizza and cake. And I didn't show much restraint in the food department. We had a nice time catching up on neighborhood news while the kids played.

More snacks, more junk-type food for dinner, more sugar. And I even had a drink. ONE drink, mind you. But I needed something to take the edge off after a day of running from one thing to the next. Believe it or not I actually started today feeling like I wanted to exercise but now that the day is nearly over...well, thank goodness this was a "rest" day because all this rest has me exhausted!
I'm feeling very sinful and a bit regretful with the food intake today. Of course I know all will be forgiven when I run tomorrow. Well, maybe not all because I'm sure I did a number on my average daily intake with today's calorie count, not to mention last night's cereal. But I'll just buckle down a bit early in the week, as I tend to do after a food-filled weekend, and it should all balance out in the end.

Speaking of tomorrow's run...the Marin Tri Club is doing a run in Point Reyes starting at Bear Valley out to Arch Rock and back. Guess how long that is? Yep, 8 miles. Seems almost like destiny doesn't it? If it weren't for the rain in the forecast I'd be jumping up and down with excitement. But even with the rain prediction I'm still pretty excited for the run, that's what all the fancy running clothes are for, right?
But my girlfriend's husband is flaking so now I'm busy trying to hitch a ride with somebody else from the group. Yes, Victor, I called you a flake.
Well, it's already 10:30pm and I have to get to bed. I have to be on the road by 8am and then run 8 miles, possibly in the rain, and almost certainly through some mud. Going to get my clothes, running gear, energy gel and other stuff out before bed to decrease the likelihood that I'll flake myself in the morning.
