I sure was lazy today. I was up late last night into the wee early hours of the morning. I just bearly got out of bed in time to watch the live stream of the Boston Marathon. The whole time I was wishing I was there even though they were saying it was a warm day for the runners. Oh well, I'll see the Good Ol' Boston Marathon this time next year.. After sitting around all day I managed to get my running shoes on and go do a token 3 mi run around the small block sans the garmin. 65*, light 12 mph wind out of the south, partly cloudy,36% humidity.

7.5 mi this am on the small block X 3....when I started the run it was just barely starting to snow. Now I've got about a 1/2 inch on the front lawn and it looks like it going to get deeper. It's a good day... I just dropped to 170 lbs and I'm throughly excited that I'm on schedule with my weight lifting, running and nutrition system and I expect to be at 160 lbs in the next 60 days or so.....
