First, a couple quick training updates:

4.0 miles/36:56/9:14 average pace

12.0 miles/1:46:45/8:54 average pace

I was tagged by Maritza & Emily and have seen it on other blogs, so I will play!

10 years ago:

1. I was a freshman at the University of Montana.
2. I was together with Zach for almost a year already.
3. I partied a lot.
4. I was kind of a mess.
5. I was a Creative Writing major and wrote some pretty interesting stuff.

5 Things on today's to-do list:

1. Run 12 miles (done)
2. Job Search (done? I didn't find a job, so "done" feels inaccurate)
3. Laundry
4. Go to bank
5. Enjoy sunshine while it is here

5 Things I would do if I were a billionaire (I've officially changed it):

1. Give lots of money to my family and friends
2. Travel
3. Build a dream house
4. Donate lots of money to various environmental, nature preservation, recreation organizations
5. Solid Gold Pony

5 Places I have lived

1. Helena, MT
2. Missoula, MT
3. San Francisco, CA
4. Walnut Creek then Dublin, CA
5. Portland, OR

5 Jobs I've had:

1. Ticket Taker for the Helena Brewers
2. Baskin Robbins
3. San Francisco State University Bookstore
4. Senior Analytics Consultant (how fantastically unspecific)
5. Job-seeker/bored person (current)

Well there you have it. I'm feeling especially bored and aimless today so sorry for the lack of enthusiasm. I am looking forward to my 20 miler this weekend though! It will most likely be raining but that's cool. I'm waterproof.

I know we've only met that once and all, and that we don't know each other at ALL, but I was wondering if I could sit on your solid gold pony when you get it?

If you get the Solid Gold Pony you have to drag it across the finish line. Just make sure you don't break it's leg, then you know what you have to do.

I love it: "I'm waterproof" - you're awesome!

I miss you!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cindy said...

hey, i'll be out there running in the rain too. i'm actually looking forward to running through puddles in forest park--is that weird?

ShirleyPerly said...

Love that "I'm waterproof" remark. I hope your 20 miler goes well and that something comes along on the job front. Enjoyed all your lovely pictures!

leslie said...

I'm running long this weekend too, and it's supposed to rain here in Rocklin too. Hope your 20 goes well.

Ewen said...

That's what I like telling my training partners when setting out for a run in the rain... "skin's waterproof".

Enjoy those rays while they last.

A brew taster for Helena Brewers would have been a better job :)

jahowie said...

A solid gold pony? LOL!! Too funny. It sounds like your workouts are going well. Enjoy that sunshine. We have had snow flurries here already. Sucks!!!

*aron* said...

It sounds like you have come a long way in 10 years.

I love the comment about being 'waterproof'. Awesome! Good luck with the 20-miler.

Chad in the Arizona Desert said...

BTW, what is this 'rain' thing you speak of?

Gotta Run said...

bored and aimless..... LOL!!!

Intersting list :)

KK said...

OMG I laughed out loud at the solid gold pony-nice!

Creative writing, eh? You would have had an illustrious (sp?) carreer at that-heck, you already DO! :)

sorry I haven't checked in in so long-I will soon. Updates to follow.

I wish we lived closer! Alas, we'll keep hanging out virtually I guess.

hang in there (job wise-I'm sure your training is rockin').
