We are headed out to Solvang today. It is a Danish town in California's Central Valley. (picture: stolen from a "Come to Solvang" type site.) I have never been and it is supposed to be a great little town. It will be good to get away for a couple of days with hubby, but I have so much work to do that I am stressed about leaving. I am going to stay in the hotel while he photographs the race and do my presentation for my masters class and grade some stuff for San Jose State. Hopefully I can enjoy myself. It is tough for me to relax on short trips when I have a lot to do at home. Hubby went last year and I was supposed to go, but I canceled on him and I still feel guilty about it.

I will probably go for a run on Friday. This time I will plan a course ahead of time to make sure I only do 3 miles! The hotel has internet so I can keep in contact!

So...how was Solvang....did you run yesterday? How did your husbands pictures turn out??

I had no idea it was supposed to rain tomorrow-no wonder we don't have herding!!! I kinda like running in the rain...8 miles-fun! If I hadn't run today on those god forsaken flat runways I would have run with you tomorrow. I so need a road trip!!!!

SUSHI! I want sushi!! Actually I splurged on thursday night and bought myself sushi with my 12 cat poo pickup money!! I hadn't had sushi in months-yum!!

So we must find a run to do! I'll find something since I'm unemployed and sit on the computer all day!

Yeah baby a week until NAPA!!!! I'm so excited for you! How much fun will it be to run a long race in wine country!!! Talk about heaven! Is your husband going? make a nice little weekend of it! I would! And then buy a nice bottle of wine for a celebration drink!!!! You know you'll be fine! You'll do great!!!!
