I’m starting to think about MdS as a restful vacation with a bit running thrown in. I’m not underestimating the desert...
No longer a sausageLiza
I’m back to normal human proportions today and I even managed a pillow fight with the Boy last night. Today I’ll spend some time ignoring housework and building a Lego spaceship. Ahh, normalcy.
I’m still sifting through literature and interviews about rhabdomyolysis, trying to figure out if I could have done anything differently to prevent my post-race adventure. I’ll let you know what I come up with.
Two bits of excitement:
1. I got mentioned on Marathon Talk!!! I’ve mentioned my love for this podcast, right? Heart it. It’s saved my life on a number of late night treadmill runs. Well, if you click the link and forward the podcast to about 35:30, you will hear me mentioned. Swoon. Leeeeeeza Howard. (Ever since Liza Minnelli’s past her prime, I’ve had to correct people about the long “i’ in Liza. Leeza Gibbons didn’t do me any favors either.) The hard J’s for Javelina Jundred are pretty great. So I got third in their account of women’s performances for the week. I think they divided my time by 4. I love it. A small goal of mine (along with being a stunt double in that Born to Run movie) is to actually be interviewed on that show.
2. And speaking of interviews, I get to do an interview this evening on Ultrarunner Podcast. I am being interviewed at the same time as Hal Koerner. I would be wildly nervous about this, but I’m a good four years older than he is, and I make it a policy not to be unnerved by younger men. Still, I dread phone interviews, so if you’d like to throw some softball, Larry King-type questions my way, you can go to UltraRunner Podcast’s Facebook page post them there.
Time to be a Mom.
