Three Things Thursday - Glass Half Full or Glass Half Empty?

Long long week but after 3:00 tomorrow I am on vacation so will not complain too much.

1.  This week was long because the kids are ready for vacation as are the teachers.  It is usually a week earlier. In addition to regular hours I had two evening events to attend and several meetings. Who invented meetings?  Glass half empty.

2.  I have my half marathon on Sunday and I can't wait. But.....my piriformis injury is acting up just a wee bit and my hip flexor which has never bothered me is also letting itself be known. Nothing is too bad, I can certainly run but I like things to be perfect!   I am worried that running the half may aggravate either pain but I'm not willing to not race.  I am optimistic it will be fine. Glass half full.

3.  I will soon be at the ocean!!! There will be running, eating out, shopping, time with friends and just time to enjoy the ocean!  Glass way full!

Vacation sounds good! Good luck with the half marathon, I'm sure all the niggles will go away.

The races I'll run will be hot in March and hopefully getting cooler in April. Our first cold for the winter usually arrives in May.

Enjoy the half this weekend. A race along the ocean sounds beautiful!

Are you and your daughter on opposite oceans this weekend? How cool! I think I may sign up next year for the one she's doing this weekend. Sounds like a nice one.

Your glass is WAY full! I like that you are optimist about your race/injury, I am sure that you will do fine. I have been working on strengthening my hip flexors because they have been giving me a problem as well. Hang tough!

Good luck of your half this weekend.
