So I have a new goal and that is to run a 5K. I have a few friends who are quite the runners and I think it would be fun, especially because there are such great causes that hold 5Ks as fundraisers. I am a little worried about my joints - rugby 2 weeks ago was fine on my knee but murder on my hip - which is an old injury that I thought was long healed. But hopefully rugby next week will be better and I also get some running in between now and then.

I am so frustrated by my joints. I know most people would be like "suck it up" but I could hardly flex my leg last week because of my hip, and it made work horrible. I am going to load up on the anvil before I run and stretch/warm up a lot. I just wish that i could be normal and not have these weird injuries.

Any runners out there with tips?

No heat

Our 1989 furnace has finally quit.  So I am at my mom's computer, in front of the fireplace wrapped in a blanket.  We have opted to have the furnace replaced because the repair is going to cost over $1000 and its really time to get a new furnace.  The company that we have a heating and cooling contract with is going to bring over some space heaters today so that we wont freeze (its 41 out right now - but going to rain/snow all weekend).  Needless to say, I will be at work for a long time today because its just not that fun to sit in a cold house.

Today is a PJ kinda day... but the light out right now is pretty and we have crocus coming up so I will be putting on some non-bright-orange pants to go out in the front yard in.
