Oh Ragnar, what have I done???

It's that time again for Ragnar Relay....188 miles of fun and torture. I am actually feeling very scared. There is no way I trained anywhere close to what I should have this time. I have been suffering from a knee injury for the past 4 months, so I tried to take it easy in hopes that it would get better. I stopped running and started biking in order to give my knee a rest. I realized I really like spin class, but I am nervous because the running has not happened and I am 2 weeks away from go time. I don't have doubts that I can do it, it just won't be pretty. My knee is still hurting a bit, but I am just going to run through the pain and gave a fun time with my family and friends.

Girl's Weekend & Bono sad!

I have been waiting for months to check another thing off my "bucket list".... seeing U2 in concert. Unfortunately, Bono was injured and had to have back surgery and all his US concert dates have been postponed until 2011. Wishing Bono a speedy recovery! Luv him!
I had tickets to shows in SLC (2nd row, amazing section, thanks Diane!) and free tickets to the Denver show (thanks Nissa's brother!). I was doing a girl's weekend in Denver, the city I call home, with my friends, Nissa and Christine. I am so sad, I have been looking forward to this for months, taking a road trip with good friends, going to an amazing concert and spending a great time with great friends. So now I must wait until 2011 to see 3 great concerts, Lady Gaga is already on the calendar!!!

Small Changes

Last week I undertook a little home project. I decided that I wanted to paint the floor vent registers that go on the wood floors. The white registers had never bothered me because it matched all the mouldings in the house, but as I started to think about it, I thought, the white registers were a little shocking against the walnut wood floors. So I found a Krylon Brushed Metallic Oil Rubbed Bronze spraypaint that will compliment the existing hardware and fixtures.
I like the change, but now the registers seem shocking against the mouldings. The jury is still out....what do you think?
