Now I do. With the costs of cell phone bills rising and texting being pretty much the only way you can reliably get ahold of someone... You have to have it. I have had it, but only 200 a month, and we all know how quickly you can burn through that. SO. I went out and got myself a blackberry. They have that BB messaging system. BALLER! Its like free texting! Im still astonished by this. I think I like it so much because I feel like I'm stickin it to the man by not paying to use his text technology. So I spent much up my afternoon off setting it up and learning how to use it. I think I can at least use the thing. I definitely need to learn to type quicker on the thing. And more accurately as well.
So Sat I went for a run. I wanted to make it in the area of...14-16 miles. Made it 11, maybe 11.5, and died. Know why I died? I think sun may have a part in it but I think it was mostly the fact I ran the last 5 miles in sand. My sis says I was in the "hard" sand. Hard sand or not, it was at least 50% harder running in it. I think the looser deeper stuff up the beach would have KILLED me. Yesterday, I ran around 3, really fast. I like running fast. It makes me feel like I'm in shape. Today was a shorter day and I ran 2, and worked in 3 short really steep hills that I sprinted up. Just to make myself suffer some.
So I really wish I had picked some other month to make it out here. Well, had been selected to be out here. There are several reasons for this. 1) So I could be a little more prepared for the questions and not be so green behind the ears for this one, 2) So the ocean would be a touch warmer so I could go SURFING without a wetsuit (we went on sunday, I loved it, as usual, and we had a TON of fun doing it), but mostly 3) So Kim could have some free time that I could get her out here for some time. I'd love for her to come out here for like a week or so. Maybe sometime in the near future we can take a vacation out here for...oh, lets call it "personal health and growth". Sound important? I thought that would make it a more legit reason to do it.
Well, I have several articles that I have to know by tomorrow, time to get started. Ill catch ya later!
