Alot has been going on the past week ,I haven't had any time to get to the computer.

Work has gotten incredibly busy which isn't good in a cancer center. We are down to 1 treatment machine until our new one gets operational in February. On friday we began treating at 630am and finished at 6pm.

Hooch had cheerleading tryouts, Bino started practice with the bowling team. These things were miles apart so I just put my taxi sign up on my car. Hooch is 16 and reminds me if I would just let her get her liscence it would be sooo much easier. I don't agree. Especially if you've riden with her.

My father in law has had a tough week. He is still having radiation to his brain. Now having nausea and vomiting. He is in the ER right now in Cleveland. They are doing a CT so I'm saying my prayers.

As far as training that has sucked. But Monday is week 1 of my 26 week training schedule for the marathon. I felt good on the treadmill today. Tomorrow I'll try to make Tony's spin class. Thursday I did go to spin an Mary had a killer workout to some of my music I gave her but I just wasn't clikcing in with everything on my mind. It did help to go.

One other thing-today is Ironman Florida. I'm watching Nancy Toby(2484) and Trimama(2297) with excitement and cheering them on. Good luck to you guys!!!!!!!!!!!!

Waddling off.......

Monday was absolutely the most perfect fall day. It was in the 60's and sunny. Unfortunately ,I was in bed with a migraine. I always miss the best days. My legs were alittle tired so maybe it was good.

Tuesday , back to work. I met my 3 new radiation therapy students today. I will have them for 2 years as a clinical instructor. So the day was spent teaching alot of basics. They are going to be excellent ,I can tell. When I got off, Hooch was manning the house for trick or treat. Bino had bowling practice so I had to pick him up and McDonald's because of lack of time and energy. I did get to see some treaters. Most interesting was the 3 year old pirate with bad tasting snot in his mouth that had me help him spitting it out. Dad stood down on the driveway. Hubby got home but a friend's car had broke down and he left to help them. Hooch's boyfriend then showed up and I was not about to head for the gym. So my workout was zero.

I have rewritten and revised my training plan for the FLYING PIG . Next week is WEEK #1.
I will if not injured set my goal to break 6 hours. I have done 6:30 both years at Chicago. Jeanne has inspired me that I can do it.

A new blog to visit. My friend got her blog up and going and love reading her. She just signed up for IRONMAN LOUISVILLE. Go visit Iron Snoopy.

Today is the perfect day to run a marathon. The temperature when Dakota and I went out was 40, no wind and sunny. I felt great running. There was just a couple of things missing:

1. I wasn't running a marathon- not in shape
2. Chicago marathon was last weekend.
3. MCM is today but it's in DC.
4. NYC is next weekend- not entered or ready.

Hopefully someday , I'll have a day like today to run a marathon.
