Yesterday, Today and this Weekend

This is going to be a quick one since I don’t have a lot of time today to write.

I have to be downtown by 10:30am for an appointment and it could take up to an hour to get there. I had a great workout at the gym this morning and a filling breakfast that should get me through what could be a two hour long appointment. I have no idea what I’m in for, so it will be an adventure!

I hardly woke up long enough to say goodbye to Woody when he left for the airport to catch a plane to Florida very early this morning. He’s going down to visit his Mom and Grandparents. Taking his golf clubs and looking forward to enjoying temperatures at least 20* warmer than here! Instead of spending the weekend on my own, my Mom is going to arrive, while I’m out, and we’re going to enjoy a ‘girls weekend!’ We haven’t done this for quite a while and I’m looking forward to it. I have a few ideas of things to do, but we’ll probably play most of the weekend by ear. Since we’ll be out and about most of the weekend, I may not post again until Monday afternoon. Just a heads up!

Last night I got to do something pretty cool for SELF Magazine. Unfortunately, I can’t really say anything about it yet, so check back in June when the July issue hits newsstands. All I can say for now is that I got to try out a few things, met some cool women and learned a thing or two! I’ve been reading SELF Magazine for almost 10 years now and love it, so this was pretty cool for me.

Before my trip to Times Square (one of my least favorite places in the city) I had a check up with my endocrinologist. He’s one doctor that I don’t mind seeing since he’s always been very helpful and understanding and all of the nurses there are fantastic. I hadn’t been in for a few months so I knew they were going to take blood – seven vials to be exact. Good thing my blood was moving quickly! I can tell you one thing, I am definitely no longer afraid of needles!

I don’t expect I’ll get to the gym every day this weekend, but hopefully I’ll make up for it with many miles of walking through the city! The weather is going to be nice this weekend so I will take a few pictures to share with you.

Well, that's it for now! What do you have planned for the weekend? I hope it's great! Good luck to all of you running the Race for Haiti and all the other races this weekend! You all rock!

Enjoy your "girls" weekend! I know what you mean about Times Square, blech... It's funny when I was a kid and it was more dark and dangerous it had so many more interesting characters and strange sights to see. Now it's all Disneyfied! For me my weekend will have my last 10 miler as I taper into my first marathon next weekend, that's about it.
