Enough about food (can you tell I'm hungry?). I found out last night that my college roommate Melissa went into labor and has hopefully had her son by now (I have my fingers crossed, 24 hours is a LONG time to be in labor). I am now officially the only college roommate from my senior year without a child. Totally fine with me - it's fun to spoil other people's kids.
Training has been going really well; I haven't missed a workout since the day before Christmas Eve. I've been going to bed early and most mornings I am able to get myself up early enough to get a workout in before work. There have been a few weekend mornings that I didn't want to get out of bed to do my long run (most notably the day after Christmas when I sat in bed eating butter rolls until 12:30pm), but I have a little marathon in February that I'd like to be in good shape for. I'd like to qualify for Boston at that race, just in case I decide that I want to run Boston in 2012. It's strange, I haven't run a stand alone marathon since Boston 2009, and I find that I miss the marathons less and less the more immersed I become in doing triathlons. I like the variety of tris and how there are so many different factors that go into making a great race and there is ALWAYS something to improve upon. Maybe I'll find renewed enjoyment in the marathon after next month's race.
