don't be jealous

BUT you should totally be jealous.

Today I ran 18 miles, crossed the 800 mile mark for the year, and (AND!) busted out a new weekly record for me of 48 miles on the week.  This is not the reason you should be jealous.

After my awesome 18 miler, that I really tried to kill, I drove everyone back to their cars or homes, came in my house, and promptly made myself a cup of coffee and an ice bath.  I've frozen a bunch of cranberry juice bottles into giant ice cubes.  It worked for the most part.  It was cold.  I was shivering by the end, but I was happy to sit in it for the whole 15 minutes.

You want to know why you should be jealous?

Well, B dumped a cup full of Dinosaurs in the tub with me so I would have some toys.  She said, "I like toys in my bath, you can play with my toys mom."

Thanks B.  You're one in a million.

Totally jealous. But not of the part you said I should be jealous of. I'm jealous of a successful 18-miler!

LOL My captcha word is "orenism" Is that like an Oreo-induced orgasm? I think I've had one of those before.
