Finished marathon!

Just finished my half-marathon. The weather was predicted to be dire: thunderstorms the whole time, ending with tornadoes and hail. So I went prepared! But instead it was great. Not a drop of rain until 3 miles from the end, and then pretty light at first. Not until the last mile was it raining steadily. And the real storm didn't start until after we'd found my parents and were in the car. My marathon partner is a bit skittish about storms so she was practically pulling me the last several miles (plus she's six feet tall so naturally is faster than me. Luckily, I am mouthy and say what I think and frequently was telling her to slow down, and no I didn't think we should start running, and no not now either.) It was fun! And I plan to sit the rest of the day!

Hi! Just catching up on some old comments on my blog and I wanted to let you know that I'm obsessed with babynamewizard.com. I read the blog religiously and can get lost in namepedia forever!

Anachronistic names in books are my pet peeve. I think I also cover it in my post for Sixth Grade Can Really Kill You.

Congratulations on finishing the half marathon! What an accomplishment! I think that's the kick in the pants I need to get back to exercising. I've been slacking the last two weeks!
