I was just at my friends website going thru the photos. He recently had a barn fire and lost almost his entire show string. He did lose all his equipment and clothes and personal possessions.
I was surprised to see my horse in his photos. I am pleased to see him there. I really loved that horse. Ironically, if I had bought him back as I wanted to, he too would most likely be one of the 19 horses that lost their lives in this fire. My horse is #24 and #63. My Brassy Ass I called him.
Dancing in the Dark is gone. He had so many National Championships. He was such an awesome horse. My heart goes out to all the owners that lost their horses in this fire. Such a scarey thing.

here is the update! I do have a very mild heel strike and I was thinking I did not. Oh well! Jim was the guy helping me out at the store. He went all over the shoes inch by inch and said there was no uneven wear or specific breakdowns. He too believed I should have gotten more than 214 miles on them.
So listening to my recap on mild stability ASICS and if I should try minimalist shoes, he said no, I would be better off in a higher cushioned shoe to help get past 200 miles.
I put on a Nike Vomero (?) and I really liked it but the toe boxes are getting smaller and I could feel my toes at the end of the shoe so he put in for the next size up, which should be in Mon/Tues. Also tried Brooks Glycerin, really liked them. And ASICS Nimbus. So when the Nikes come in, I'll try them all again and make my pick!

WOW... This is a huge recap blog!! Why does the shortest month of the year end up getting so much packed into it?
We had the large Sweetheart dance that took up 1/2 a Sunday for the most part.
We had our annual Daytona party, which took up another 1/2 a Sunday along with 1/2 a day of prep before. And the dang race is rained out!
Squeeze into that I signed up for a landlord boot camp to learn MY rights as a land lord as the courts side w/ the renters most of the time and they are usually in the wrong! Or should I say an honest landlord is not the norm and the court doesn't believe that you are! This was a whole day affair. That and dog food 'should' have been delivered this week.
Squeezing in all the last minute tax return prep work. Squeeze in the visit to the tax man. my tax man!!
Getting two to the vet for required shots for boarding the first weekend of March, this has to also count as part of February as it is an extension of the last week of February, for our big weekend (ubber fun!) um, this was another weekend the food should have been delivered...
Add in getting a few new dog food customers and a few that could not make it till March 10th and getting and delivering the food to hold them over..
Then... the kicker... made the mistake of mentioning I wanted to use my tax return to pay off my and have no car payments for a while. Well this all of a sudden turned into I am getting a new car and we have to.. wait for it... SQUEEZE in yet another thing to do in February!! Add in researching cars, making appointments to go see two cars, then go and BUY the car... and the squeezing in of seeing the two cars is on my day off for Daytona prep and a riding lesson with had LONG been planned on this day and I was not going to hurry up or reschedule this! It was a kick butt lesson too!
So the food finally got delivered last Saturday and then we had our evening also throw in dancing lessons on Wednesdays, and 2-3 dances every week...
I do not know how I didn't lose my mind! But I can relax now... pfew that's over with! So on to March and unseasonable weather!! I ran last Friday
morning, it was 25 today, it's 70! I am fighting a chest cold that is trying to take hold w/ these huge temp changes!
so... sorry I was pretty much MIA the past few weeks!
So the title you ask? What's up w/ the title?
Well a guest at our Daytona party brought a bunch of GLUTEN FREE bakery and they are I do not eat sweets often, Spark taught me how to say no! But I don't go to GF bakeries so I do not get often. There were 4 when I left for work. When I got home, there were 3.
ahem. you ate one of my
Well, you were NOT going to really eat them were you?
So I let him eat one more, we shared one, and the last is in the freezer...maybe I'll break it out tonight...maybe not

I took the quiz 'What kind of runner are you?' from Active.com
You live and breathe fitness. You eat right and incorporate all sorts of fitness workouts into your routine. You run a few miles at a time a few days a week to boost your cardiovascular endurance and to help get that sexy core. You know all the latest fitness brands and love wearing the latest Nike pants or lululemon top. Bikini season is year round in your books, so you stay on top of your fitness regimen.
While I don't fit 100% into what's written above, it's pretty close! What about you?
And it links to races that it thinks will fit into your running style! Kinda interesting.
so... I'm shopping. Now getting a new car is always fun, but I kinda don't want to! I've been the run them into the ground and don't have a car payment kinda
But my BF wants
me in a safe, dependable car
have the car be worth something at trade in time
this helps keep me used to the lastest car prices
not have to put extra money into car except wheels & snow tires
must have On Star
and he kept going and I feel like the kid in the Subaru ad where she's like 5 and getting ready to drive and then flashes to a 16 yr old saying 'okay Day okay'
So...I'm probably going to get a Chevy Cruze on Friday. Of course I am getting one w/o all the bells and whistles, as in extra charges, but did have to upgrade a 'model' from my Cobalt to get auto start, so there are plenty of bells on it. It's a 4 door too! I am so used to 2 doors unless it's a van!
I don't know if I'm frugal, cheap or realistic but I don't buy things I don't need. (And YES! I need all that running gear! that doesn't count!) But I don't need a new cell phone. I have an iPhone3 and it works great. Yes I am up for a new one on my contract, but why pay another $100 or so when I don't need it? Besides, I just bought a new cover for this one! That makes it new right? It's a different color than the old cover!
Well my BF teases me about my phone because I do not have the talk option that converts to text and says I need that. I retort back that HE made need it, but I know how to type and do just fine thank you.
So last night, he very mischievously said since I'm getting a new car, I HAVE to get a new phone as the new car comes standard with bluetooth. I almost smacked him! He is appalled that I don't even KNOW if my phone is bluetooth ready or not. Anyone know? Bueller? Bueller?
