Wednesday Roundup

Lori's making a delicious baked ziti with her patented turkey meatballs. My job is to turn the dish around in just a couple minutes. God I love her meat balls, meatbulbs as I call them.

Anyway, I had a really good day. Wells, as good as a day can be at work. For one thing I had a really good lunch run. My easy pace is quickening, I'm now up to 7 mile long runs on the weekend. The Santa Cruz Wharf to Wharf, 6 mile run, is at the end of this month and I want to finish somewhere around 60 minutes.

The other awesome thing is my work had a health month for June. We got raffle tickets for every time we packed our lunch, had 10,000 steps per day, or worked out after work. I finished June with 80 raffle tickets.

And I won! Original prize was a mountain bike, but since I already own 4 bikes, I opted for the Nike Store gift certificate for 450 buck-a-ronies! I can finally get some of the running gear I drastically need, including jacket.

So that made my day.

You mean, -- "I can treat my lovely bride-to-be and myself to some new running gear and buy Rob a gift too" is what you mean...
