If you're wondering how I spent my Thursday night, (you're not) I spent it frantically cleaning my house, vacuuming every inch of carpet, dusting every surface, and washing all the blankets. I don't know if I've suddenly become a victim of spring time allergies, but my eyes ARE SO ITCHY. And contrary to the Facebook not-doctors, I am NOT pregnant. I think Twitter is where all the real medical unprofessionals are. They told me it was allergies, that its perfectly normal to suddenly be affected by them, and to try Claritin so that is what I am going to do. My pets, God love them, are also shedding SO MUCH HAIR and its really just not helping this situation.

Anyway, its Friday and I couldn't be happier. Dragging myself out of bed this week has been downright painful. PAINFUL. I've had to give myself pep-talks every day to get up out of bed and to work. Bribed myself with Starbucks, told myself "You only have two more days. You can do two days" and promised myself I could sleep in Saturday and Sunday.
Actually I only sort of get to sleep in on Sunday, as I am now officially training for a half marathon and am happy to say I haven't skipped a workout yet. This Sunday I'm running 5 miles with my friend Molly. I've been busy planning out where I want to run 6 miles when we're in Seattle. Any suggestions?
This has been a really quality post. Itchy eyes, not wanting to go to work, and boring running details. You're welcome.
I do want to introduce you to a wonderfully talented and creative blogger/designer/photographer, Lix. I first met Lix when she offered to do my blog's Media Kit before I went to the Build Your Blog Conference. She is extremely talented and really easy to work with. If you need a new blog design, I encourage you to go check out her work! Having a good blog design is one of the BEST investments you can make into your blog in my opinion.
