to use a BB gun on our recent trip to Omaha.
Running? Not so much. My ankles are still really sore. I've been taking it easy, just doing 3 miles at a time, nice and slow. And daily walking with Jane of course. My right ankle in particular is bugging big time. The pain is now starting to travel up the ankle bone..... I might need to schedule some quality time with my sports doc.

I started a couple of new programs - 100 push-ups and 200 squats. They are both 6 week programs brought to me via my new iPhone. There's an app for that! My upper body strength is crapola so I'm hoping the push-ups will help with that. And call me crazy, but I LOVE doing squats. Both of these will be easy to incorporate into my day so I'm thinking they are doable and attainable goals.
Hey, remember Misty? I was lucky to run with her for a while in the Stillwater 20 miler and then saw her heading towards the finish line at Grandma's. I'm not the only one who's inspired by her. There was an article in the Pioneer Press about Misty and her amazing accomplishments! Way to go, Misty!!!
We are in the middle of some nasty-ass weather. Feelin' hot, hot. hot. And humid. I think the humidity has been in the high 70's. It's like being underwater when you go outside. I actually LOVE hot, humid weather but this is getting to be a bit much, even for me.
|How I ruined the husband's birthday last year.|
Work has continued to be super busy. Super duper busy. It's awesome that I can work from home about 50% of the time. It's so nice to not have to spend 2-3 hours a day in rush hour traffic.
We celebrated the husband's birthday this week. Last year I pretty much destroyed his birthday by getting in a 3 car accident on the interstate (during rush hour traffic) and totaling my Pilot. It was the first car accident I've ever been in. Scary!! I wasn't hurt, other than major torquing of my body and LOTS of muscle pain, so that was good. But it did kind of put the kibosh on any sort of birthday celebration, unless you count time spent in Urgent Care as celebrating. And my trusty Pilot didn't survive.

So that's about it. Things remain pretty quiet here in Lake Wobegon.
What's everyone else been up to?
