Training/ Casey's Bridal Shower

Training. I was only able to run 10 miles last week. On Wednesday, I slept on my neck wrong, went running thinking it was no big deal, then pinched a nerve. This cost me a day, and 6 miles, in my training. So, tomorrow, I gotta make up those miles. My neck is still not 100% better, but I'm hoping by morning, I'll be ok enough to run. We shall see...

Last night. Casey's Bridal Shower. So, so wonderful. I love this girl. And couldn't be any happier for her. Her smile brightens the entire room and she is just beyond beautiful. I can't believe one of my best friends is tying the knot. How fast time flies. Since high school, Casey and Andrew have been together. Even before they were a couple, I swear, they loved each other. Sure, they seemed happy in their previous relationships, but nothing even compared to such happiness as to when they were together. I still remember how elated Casey was to be with Andrew so many years ago. And seeing her last evening was like seeing her back then. I've never seen her so happy. I love you, Casey. The Wedding will be amazing, but the Marriage will be extraordinary.

Labor Day

Nagi
Isn't she adorable?
Japan: August 2009
I spent my Labor Day evening with my BFF, Chelsea (whom I haven't seen in almost 2 years), her sister, Karly, and friends, Charlotte, Ryann, Jenna and Lisa (in addition to their significant others). In case you may not already know, I've known Char & Ry Girl since the 1st grade, and Jenna & Lisa since High School. I've known Chel and Kar practically since birth. So it was a fun, and much needed, reunion! I love you girls.
I found out on Tuesday (following Labor Day), that I officially got the job, once my background check was complete. Wednesday it successfully cleared! Phew! So, my first day will be September 28th. I am looking forward to starting something new.

I did something the other day that I'm not sure I should have done.....I signed up for the P.F. Changs Rock 'n' Roll Marathon, scheduled for January 17th, 2010. This will be my first marathon. I've run two half-marathons in previous years, but never a full. I figure that since 2 halves equal a whole, I've practically run a full marathon already. However, I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't worried about this excursion. Quite the contrary.
My official marathon training begins next week. If you don't hear from me soon, it may be because I am suffering a slow and agonizing death.

Burned Retinas

Ok. I had my annual eye appointment today. I am sad to report that I have damaged my retinas. My doctor described it as stretched out bubble gum. I blame the solar eclipse.....damn solar eclipse..... Please never, ever stare at one. It really does damage your little retinas. Poor retinas.

I don't know the official news yet, but I do believe I got the job I was fighting for (I heard the good news through the grapevine). I received a phone call on Friday, but of course, missed it. So I have to call Human Resources back on Tuesday. If this is true, I will start working the last week in September. Good for me! Now I can support my unhealthy shopping/spending addiction......

It's Saturday night- ASU Football!!! GO DEVILS!!!
