Clif Bar – Voluntary Recall

Ouch.  Gotta check our supply of Clif Bars to make sure we don’t have any that might contain the contaminated peanut butter product.


We finally bought cross-country skis last week, and I’ve been waiting all week to take them out.  Saturday morning, we met up with Jess and Sam at the Skokie Lagoons and spent two hours on the trails.  I’m sore today!  This afternoon, we finally mustered up the energy to walk the two blocks to the lake, with the intention of skiing along the lakefront.  We soon realized that our part of the lake is sectioned off by several condo buildings, so we couldn’t go very far.  Tomorrow, I think we’ll head out to the lagoons again.  

End of Year Sale!

The snow, the cold, the dark… it’s starting to get to me.  I’m ready for spring, sun, warmth.  I know that lots of people are mentally preparing for the coming season, and the hit counter tells me that you’re looking back at photos of past races.

Take a look!

Happy new year! (a couple of days late…)

Oops, can’t believe I missed the Happy New Year post.  Here’s wishing you a very happy new year!  

Tomorrow is my last day of prolonged time off.  In the past month, I think I’ve worked a total of 7 days, and I’ve completely enjoyed having so much time off.  We went to Mexico for a week, then I was lucky enough to get a snow day, and then because of the holidays and vacation time, I only worked two days last week and two days the week before that.  Starting Monday, it’s back to a five-day work week.  That will certainly be a shock to my system!  But, thankfully, I think I’ve finally reached the point of being bored during the day.  Every day until now, I’ve either been running around, working out, reading, watching movies, shopping, cooking, etc.  But, today?  I went for a short ride, and then just lay around the house.  I’m kinda bored.  There are things that I could do, but I don’t really want to do them.  Maybe that will make Monday easier to deal with…
