Screaming Chicken

Nick calls me Katie Kaboom sometimes. He tells me that I'm crazy and that my craziness reminds him of a cartoon character called Katie Kaboom. The way he describes it: Ms Kaboom is a loveable sweet character, but then she gets angry and turns into this super crazy chic. Then he showed me a clip, and admitted I'm not really like her, but that I can go from sweet to crazy chic in mere nanoseconds. I love it when Nick tells me this stuff. I like to ask him random weird questions and see what he throws back at me. I asked him once, "What type of car do you see me driving? Let's assume money isn't an issue." His response, "Why do you ask me these questions? I don't know...probably a screaming chicken." I was all, seriously, a chicken car? I almost went Kaboom, but then he explained what a screaming chicken was, and I was impressed with the uniqueness of his answer. Now I want to drive a firebird...

In other news, I've registered for the BayState Marathon in October. I have no idea what my goals will be. Right now I just want to build a base and feel strong again. I'm going to give myself 5 weeks to build my mileage, then I'll figure out what I should be doing pace wise.

You and Nick must have a ton of fun! I am used to being called crazy. It's my middle name. I actually think that people who are playing it safe are at a loss here...but what do I know?
Yay for Baystate. Maybe we could do some long runs together. I have a 24 miler easy in August and would love to run in on the course. Interested?

AM: Yes! Definitely! I'd love to run a long run on the course. It would have to be easy though. I'm not sure if I'll be able to run much faster than 8:20 ish pace...

What a loving husband... ;)

I am still debating a fall marathon. On one hand I always get dragged into them 'cause "everyone else is doing it" but on the other a "season off" from marathoning sounds tempting too.
