Birthday Eve Post

On the eve of my 38th birthday….

Man, what a week it has been. Super stressed. Not running enough. Super stressed. Half of my day at work was crappy…then, i got to eat some birthday cake which was delicious. that made me feel a little better. a colleague made it for me cause she bakes great cakes and i asked her to make me one way back in like, march! it was chocolate with peanut butter frosting. they had 4 candles on the cake. i have no idea what i wished for, but i was happy they were there and happy to blow them out. how can you NOT feel young and kinda silly when you blow out the candles on your cake?

Unfortunately, the stress came zooming right back. Soon, i left and called Kelly in SF to vent about some of the things from the day. So glad she was willing and able to listen!!

My evening is better. I have to pack tonite for my trip to SF Bay Area tomorrow. While I have some mixed feelings about taking this trip at this particular time, I’m sure I will have a good time and maybe it will even be helpful to get away for a few days. I booked a cool place to stay tomorrow night in one of the best little cities around, MILL VALLEY! I could retire there….I hope to get on part of the Dipsea Trail at least for a little bit either late tomorrow or very early on Friday. I hope to suck in the awesome smells of Marin county and the eucalyptus trees!! 

I’ve been so busy and stressed that running has not been the mental focus like it had been. I’m not sure if that is good or not, but it is what it is. I hope to get some sort of run in tomorrow early am pre-flight. I came across some photos on flickr of a previous Stump Jump Race. Looks pretty damn fun!!
