Tiny locust, margaritas and movies

LizaLiza

Ruby woke up this morning and demanded to be taken down to the kitchen where she started calling, “Chips?  Chips? Where are you???”  I don’t know that she’s stopped eating tasty treats since she got to her Nonno and Nonna’s house.  She also calls out for cookies with great success.  Initially there was a little confusion as to whether she was saying “turkey” or “cookie,” but that was quickly cleared up and there’s been little to stop the tiny locust since.

I did get the treadmill 21-miler done.  It was not pretty — especially since my parents have mirrored walls in their workout room — but I got it done.   (Some of the ugliness was margarita-induced.)

This is Daisy the Tolerant, my sister’s dog.

And then we saw some Star Wars.

Without this one.  (We didn’t actually leave her in the basket.)

      Thanks, Lauren! I watched one of the Charlie’s Angels movies. I find light/bad movies are the best. My parents have a really great collection of movies to choose from, but most of them are too good for my treadmill tastes. 🙂

    Liza, I just want to say that you are my hero and inspiration. It was all I could do to get out for a 45 minute run after work last evening – how you got yourself onto the treadmill for 21 miles I will never know, and after a mexican dinner even!

    I stumbled onto your blog several months ago and have really enjoyed it. Your determination is amazing!

      Thanks so much, Anne! I promise you wouldn’t have been very inspired if I’d posted a video of the treadmill run. 😉

    Liza – Was just wondering what the column labels are for your training planner. I have been struggling with a layout that I like and will use, and was taken with yours..

    thanks

    Liza, I thought about you and your 21 miles on the treadmill and am constantly amazed. I will absolutely never complain about my sessions in the garage again. One of these days, maybe after Squamish, I would love to have a margarita with you.
