There are a few things in life that I know to be fact:
1.) The St. Louis Cardinals will be playing in the world series. The first game is tonight and I will be cheering them on. They will be taking that stupid rally squirrel with them. Most of you will have no idea what I am talking about when I mention their rally squirrel, consider yourselves lucky, although he is kind of cute.
2.) Fall is here and my favorite holidays are approaching. I've been busy making treat bags and planning on how I will scare unsuspecting trick or treaters.
3.) Fall is also my favorite time to go mountain biking, which is perfect because it is also my off season. I love riding in the crisp air and seeing the gorgeous fall color change of the Aspens.
I know for a fact that my daughter is beautiful and my puppy is adorable.
4.) I know that while I have enjoyed racing triathlons, I am ready to do some running races again, so I have signed up for an out of town half marathon and have even booked the flight.
Now, those of you who have been following me for awhile know that I do not have a good track record for out of town races. It seems as though once I finally manage to drag the ole credit card out and schedule a flight, something happens.
Examples: Two years ago, I booked a flight to San Antonio for the Rock and Rock Marathon. The very next day, I went and had a pulmonary embolism and couldn't run the race the following month.
Last year, I was a month out from the Chicago Marathon, so I figured I better book a flight, so I did. The next weekend, I ran my last 20 miler and hurt my ass muscle and my SI joint came out. Then it all went downhill from there. I won't bore you with the details, but I couldn't run that out of town marathon either.
So now, it is the day after I have booked my flight and I am dreaming up all kinds of horrible things that could happen in the next week. I am even thinking of purchasing some bubble wrap and wearing a helmet.
Surely, SURELY karma won't come back to bite me again. RIGHT? Please tell me it won't......
I also know for sure that I am behind in reading posts (as usual), so I'll see you soon
