Insert my obligatory "I haven't posted in ages" spiel here.

I've been running for the past month or so in the "Learn to Run" group I posted about earlier. It's been going well. We meet on Thursdays, and there's an unofficial group of us that meet on Tuesdays as well, which is good for me, because it's way easier for me to go out and run when I'm meeting up with people. There's someone that's about my pace in the group which is good for me. Considering there are only about 5 or 6 people in my group/level/whatever, it's a nice surprise. Oh, and I finally ran 5 km today, which, while not a huge milestone or anything, felt good to get done. I have a 5 km race next weekend that I somewhat foolishly signed up for last month, so actually running the distance was a good thing for me. At least I know what pace I can run and still finish the race at, if nothing else.

Been watching a lot of the Olympics as well. I have decided I need a pair pants that the the Norwegian Men's Curling team wear (as seen here). Aren't they fantastic? Anyway, I've been staying up far too late to watch some of the events, but oh well.

What else...my one co-worker still drives me up the wall on occasion, but I'm getting more patient about it. At least the running gives me a chance to bleed off any pent up anger. She's nice, but sometimes...

Oh yes, I got a new stove for the apartment. The old one was, well, old (to quote the guys that brought the new one "wow that thing is ancient"), and kept blowing its fuses, so they got me a new one which is quite exciting. I can finally use the oven again!

I think...that's about it that's new, or somewhat new with me. Hope you all are having a lovely day.

Those Norwegian Curling pants are the stars of the whole event, I think. I would LOVE a pair of those!

Hey, but on the other hand, I don't know if Norway has the massive marketing and sponsorship campaigns that North America has, so money to a Norwegian athlete might actually DO SOMETHING and help them out.

I still really hope we beat them in curling though... awesome pants or no.

Yay for running - you are progressing at a good clip! I think signing up for a race is a great idea - it keeps you on target. I wish there was a race around here soon, but the next one isn't till May, gah.

The Norwegian team's trousers are an eyesore, but they are also spectacular. I think I need to re-watch Men With Brooms soon :o)
