Where have I been? Nowhere, really, just not blogging due to busy work/life and a lack of internet at my new place (I'm getting internet today, yay!). I had an absolutely amazing weekend that included a lot of walking around DC, visiting the Newseum, staying in a hotel with grind your own coffee (!!!!):

Playing shuffleboard into the wee hours of the morning:

(not pictured: the fact that I suck at shuffleboard so bad I had random passersby volunteering advice)
And generally having the time of my life. I'm so happy I went, but I really need to stop having these phenomenal weekends where I don't run. I'm ok with missing a Saturday or even a midweek run, but my long runs? Non-existent. As the Marine Corps Marathon page so helpfully (not.) tells you, it is only 94 days until the marathon.... umm... wow. That's not a lot of days. I have less than 14 weeks to get my butt in gear.

I have tried to get back on track this week by running Monday (4 miles) and Tuesday (3 miles. Normally Monday is a cross-train day). I'm not sure how today's run is going to fit in- I have an appointment to get my cable installed between 2 and 5pm, and I have stuff to take care of this evening... but I'll make it work. Somehow. 5 miles is really not that much.

I'm also going to get my weekends under control. I'm seeing someone new, and we're in the "omg, we're having the best time ever!" stage, meaning we spend all of our time together doing fun things that are way preferable to long runs. He runs too, so I should really try to incorporate more running dates and fewer beer dates into our routine.

I can do this.
