the new year

wow. almost two weeks have passed since the new year. actually, it was two weeks ago since new years eve passed. this will be my first post of the new year. funny because it's just before i want to leave to work somewhat early. it looks like this won't be a long post but a short summary of the new year.

school started this week. taking organic chem of course and world religions. the world religions is going to be a lot of work. it is a prereq for nursing students so i'm going to stick with it. never mind that the deadline for dropping with out paying passed yesterday. it helps there are some cute young girls in there.

i went for a run at forest park on new years day with jen. we both wore shoes as it was a bit cold. some man asked us if it was our new years resolutions. we both scoffed and looked at him in disgust and answered no. come on. if you have to make a resolution to do something, especially if you wait until new years, you're not going to make it. i don't care what it is. i learned a number of years ago that i fail at new years resos. i resolved then to not make them anymore and i've been quite happy.

a highlight of winter break was i tool my daughter on a trial run. well, she mostly walked while i "ran". my maf pace keeps me quite slow on trails. i'll post soon about my first maf test i did last week. it was still exciting for me to get her out there even though it was only once and she barely ran. she was stomping the whole time. i wonder if she lost that beautiful form that she has. god i hope not.

i have also entered two bloggers contests to win a pair of merrell road gloves. i have trail and tough gloves so some roads would round it out for me. i actually tied the lace for work last night and they were quite comfy. that  is the tough gloves that i wear to work and the trails for the occasional run and to lab. i keep them in my car along with some black driving mocs in case i ever need to wear some shoes.

check out those links for some reviews on the road gloves or almost any other shoe  you want to buy. gotta go.
