So yesterday, my running partner wimped out on me when I picked him up from school. I went on out & did 3 miles by myself anyway. Got them done faster than we go out together – less walking & talking, of course. LOL! He didn’t wimp out on me tonight, though! w00t! We ran 3 tonight, got them done faster since we didn’t take Leonardo with us this time. Still no where near what I used to run 3 miles in, but I’m ok with that. I’m still getting out there, right? The shins are bothering me again tonight… but I’m hoping like mad that it’s just the nasty old shin splint issue since I’m technically starting over once again.
Registrations opened up for the Gulf Beaches Half Marathon today, woo hoo! My coworker got the email & told me it was open… so we both signed up on the spot! First 100 get their spots for only $30 – and we were both in that group! YAY! Now I have a solid goal to work towards. Very cool, this race is one that I’ve wanted to do for a long time. Mostly ‘cuz I just love the finisher medal. he he he It’s cute, what can I say? :P
Draco is DONE! I finished knitting them last night around midnight. Woke up early this morning to finish writing up the pattern for them. Had to wait for the sun to come up so I could get in some good pictures of them for Ravelry & the pattern file. Once I got all of that done & the PDF created… it was too late to post it to Ravelry – I had to leave for work! I was most frustrated by the delay. However, it’s all good – posting a pattern in the evening gets a bit more exposure, I think. Or maybe not. he he he Anyway…
I had the socks on my feet & headed for the door this morning – then remembered that I hadn’t finished them! Each sock still had a dangling tail that needed to be woven in yet. Grabbed a needle, stuck in my shirt – grabbed scissors, stuck those into my purse & off to work I went. We had a “team building” event at a local park. When I arrived, as I headed for the picnic table, someone stops me & asks “did you know that you have a needle in your shirt?” I replied “yes, I need to finish my socks!” and promptly sat down, pulled out the needle & wove in the tails! LOL!
I was SO excited to have them done! I’m very, very pleased with how they turned out. My first real stranded colorwork, too! Hope you all like them…
Today’s Ravelry Search
Since today was the whole “team building” event, I thought I’d do a related search today. :)
OH! I had a comment on Ravelry which lead me to realize that some of you may not be aware… every picture you see here is linked to the pattern page on Ravelry. So if you see something you like, click it – it will open a new window/tab for you & take you right to the page so you can favorite, queue, download or purchase the pattern! :) On to the fun stuff…

Happy Wednesday, everyone!
