Sleep - 1, running - 0

Yeah, I bailed on the idea of doing the Wildwood Run this morning. I woke up with a horrid sinus headache and the thought of running just didn't sound appealing. Plus, the race was SMALL (I looked at the Web site this afternoon and there were only 37 runners total) and I like to run in larger crowds so I blend in. So I hit the snooze button and the rest is history.

That's OK though, because I think I have found another run I want to do next weekend instead. It's a 5.6-miler on the trails through the redwoods. And it's FREE! It sounds like a good one to light a fire under my ass again in regards to running. I'm not sure how many people will show up, but since it's in the redwoods, I don't really have to worry about people watching me like I do when road racing.

I went to a baby shower this afternoon and then Kara and I spent some mother-daughter time in Eureka. Meanwhile, Tim took Matty out to lunch, the park and then for ice cream. We all had a busy day!

I hope to run tomorrow morning sometime, then take the kids to the grandparents', where they'll spend a few days. This is perfect timing, since my birthday is Monday and now Tim and I can go out to dinner or something. Plus, it will give me time to study for my final exam, set for Wednesday (I got 97 out of 100 on the lab test we had this past week). I am almost done with summer school and one step closer to being able to apply to the nursing program!! Yay!

Oh, and I sent an email to the Garmin company the other day about how mine was refusing to charge. They told me how to reset it, and it worked. So I think I'll have my old buddy back for tomorrow's run!

Today's stats:
Time: 30 minutes

Followed by 150 jump rope jumps (not sure how else to phrase this)
