This Sunday is St. Patrick's Day. My husband and I, along with our runner friends, will be celebrating it at the LA Marathon. We will be running 26.2 miles from Dodger Stadium to Santa Monica, "From Stadium to Sea." I am excited! We will have friends who will be at a particular mile for water/cheering station. They have volunteered to do that. We have been volunteering a lot which makes me appreciate the volunteers more. I also appreciate the police officer who will be on hand to block off the streets and make sure that the streets are safe for us runners. They deserve awesome police rings like the ones I saw online for doing that!
I have been quiet the month of February - real life got me busy (between work, wife, marathon training and race organizing duties).
I'm back and alive. I will be posting about what has happened the past month while I was gone. I will be updating you guys about our homegrown race, the Los Angeles River Fun Run. (By the way, you can also like and visit the Facebook page at www.facebook.com/LARiverFunRun.
Every weekend has been busy for us - if we're not running or mountain biking, we're at a race, volunteering or attending family parties. This weekend, we'll be running the LA Marathon!!! I am excited and nervous at the same time. I will share stories and hopefully I can take pictures (while running) too.
One of my biggest frustration in life is not learning how to play an instrument - guitar or piano in particular. I'm not gifted with a singing voice, too so I could only sing karaoke with family and friends but playing an instrument whether you have a good voice or not is truly different. My husband played the guitar when he was in high school but haven't played since then. He is hoping to learn again and maybe get a new guitar like the godin xtsa we saw online the other day. I hope he continues with this plan so he can play me a few songs or we could sing together.
Did you guys watch the movie Argo? The better half and I loved it. In fact, I already have a reminder on my calendar to buy it in blu ray when it comes out next month. Anyway, for those of you who haven't seen it I suggest you watch it now. Ben Affleck did an amazing job as one of the producer, plus director and actor in the movie. However, I'm sad to learn that he was snubbed by the Academy Awards for Best Director nomination for this year's Oscar's Award! How can they forget about him? He deserved to be nominated! Sigh. Just sad. But before I forget, I have to look for neck pillows for my parents!
