ING Georgia, and a few other things, on my mind

If it's not clear from both the content of my posts and the quantity of my posts - I've been a bit distracted by other things besides running lately. This past week, MOB mentioned something about trying to see me in the Highlands on Sunday, and I said, "why, what's happening Sunday?" Oh, that's right, I'm only running a frickin' marathon! ;)

Earlier this week, the forecast was ideal for Sunday, but now it looks like there's a chance of showers and lows in the 40s, highs in the 50s. One thing I've learned though, is never trust the forecasts.

It's not just the wedding and trying to sell my condo that's been on my mind. My mind is occupied by work as well. It was a bad year for our industry last year, and whenever a company has a bad year, my area (training and development) always feels a lot of pressure the following year. I really can't complain too much though. Compared to other companies (Delta comes to mind right now), we don't seem to be that bad off.

I try not to blog about work, but I'll just say this - they've been pretty good to me at this place. It's been the ideal job for me so far and I'd kinda like to keep it.

I probably won't be posting again until after the marathon. Going into it, I feel pretty good - I'll get through it. It won't be my best time, but I knew that all along. I'm glad to be part of this particular marathon because it honors all the great features of this city that I've come to call home.

Until then my friends!

Best of luck to you on Sunday. May the weather be as ideal as it sounds right now.

You won't need good luck, but I will wish it for you anyway.

Good luck, I know you'll run a strong race.

I'm running the half and I'm feeling like I'll be fine.

Were is the beer tent?

I hope you warmed up by now, LOL.

I froze, but after a 75 minute shower I think I felt warm.

Good luck! Can't wait to hear how it went.
