Ahead of the game …

I went to the beach today, which always makes me super happy. I love being down by the ocean this time of year because everything seems to glisten. I’m sure it does during the summer, but for some reason, maybe the cooler air, it just seems to be more … um … glisten-y-er. HA! The beach is also almost completely vacant of beach goers. The waves sound even more powerful to me. And the crisp salt air is intoxicating.

I love all of it. Sights. Sounds. Smells. Everything!

But today I saw one of the strangest things I’ve ever seen before at the beach … and it had nothing to do with the ocean whatsoever. Someone had a completely decorated Christmas tree in their window. COMPLETELY.

A CHRISTMAS TREE.

IN OCTOBER.

EVEN FREAKIN BEFORE HALLOWEEN.

I was dumbfounded.

A Christmas tree. NOW?!?!

… seriously, I was baffled. Still am. A Christmas tree. Hmmmm …

Well, I hope you all had a day where you found someone who was WAY AHEAD OF THE GAME!!!

I hope I don’t jinx myself …

I haven’t wanted to say ANYTHING. But here goes. I can’t believe how good my feet feel. I have had some minor aches and pains but with all the running I’ve been doing again it all seems to be … normal. OH. MY. GOD. OK, let’s not talk about it anymore.

Well, I hope you all had a day where you didn’t want to jinx yourself!!!

I shouldn’t have done that …

Um. I ran 14 miles today then I took Libs and Ree to the L.A. Arboretum. The run was needed (Well, not the extra mile I did because I miscalculated the mileage on a run I’ve done a BAZILLION times before). And the arboretum was as beautiful as ever. However. I’m not sure I needed to walk that much after not having run that much in almost two months … oh and the hills … let’s not forget the hills.

Oh.

My.

Aching.

Legs and feet.

Well, I hope you had a day where you don’t think you should have done that!!!
