lesson learned yesterday:

hungry? fine. i don’t have to sprint to the kitchen, though. if i must, however, i should first make sure the dishwasher door is locked in place. now the aftermath of my klutziness is a few days of no running. my knee is a big blue ball this morning and hurts like hell when bent. 5 months to the avalon benefit 50-mile race… note to self: do not screw up until then. (like deciding to go skiing in december a couple of weeks before the race, or other brilliant moves like that). and definitely no ‘race for the bread’ stunts. there’s plenty of food at ultras!

    Yi Yi, that smarts! Nice blood shot!

    I’m still eating veggies – no meat just yet. Just lots of pasta and stuff and it all tastes pretty good. I don’t miss it at all. I am, however, beginning to crave a good strong cup of coffee (been 2 weeks). I’m gettin’ cranky over here!!

    Hey, too bad you missed Avalon – I was there this year:) Hope you make it in 2007! It’s a great run!
    And yeah, that is if you heal your knee and don’t do anything stupid:)
