Odds and ends

You thought paying bills, answering emails, and looking at the bags I still have to unpack from Leadville was going to keep me from blogging?


Missing cat.  Missing grill on the front of the car.  Wilting rose bushes.  Counseling.


Eliot’s working “Late Nite at the Rec” and Asa’s in bed and I’m enjoying some unmonitored free time.  Jelly Belly, anyone?

I’ll head out for my first real run since Leadville tomorrow.  I’m going to give the new 1010s a spin on the rocks.  I will let you know.  I ran Leadville in the 110s (silver) and they were great on all those groomed Colorado trails — and roads.  But the Texas rocks require more and the 1010s might just be perfect.  Fingers crossed.

What else?  Asa starts kindergarten on Monday.  Spanish immersion.  Nap time on a towel.  (No pillows!)  And I’m going to go gluten free for a while.

And it looks like the trail running camp with Team RWB is going to be huge.  I will tell you more about it once I get the flyer finished tomorrow.

    We have gone gluten-free as a by-product of living with a friend that is testing the GF waters. It’s become a game to see how much food we can find at the store without gluten. It is especially fun to find something gluten-free that isn’t marked with a huge neon glowing sign advertising it as such. I find that I now prefer gluten-free spaghetti noodles over traditional ones. They are so good! And gelato, and tortillas, and chips, and crackers. Who knew! We’ll see how long it lasts, but it seems like a pretty sustainable endeavor. Except for Gu. Gotta have my Gu on long runs here. Not sure if that stuff is GF.

    Go forth and conquer!

    Is the GF experiment running-related? Just curious…. : )

      A bit. But also my B-12 was mysteriously low and I wanted to see if gluten-free had any effect since celiac disease can cause B-12 deficiency. And all the cool people are doing it. ;)
