Princess! (150.4)

I'm in the car, my friend Heather is driving, on the way to Indy to
catch a flight at noon for Orlando!

Sunday I'll run my 7th half marathon. As Princess Aurora. In a tutu.
Should be interesting!

I haven't trained like I should have. I had a good 10 mile run 2 weeks
ago, and I know I'll finish but I won't be fast. Which is totally
fine. It's going to be warm--65-70. I weigh 20 pounds less than I did
last year, so that should help. I am stopping this year to take pcs
with characters on the route. I didn't last year because I didn't want
to stop and wait.

We moved into our new office this week. It's so pretty. The walls of
our offices are blue. Hallways are blue grey. Floors are dark
bamboo--they are gorgeous. Trim is all white. Hallways are wide. Big
galley kitchen. Bathrooms are pretty. Big windows in the front. I have
a window, and new office furniture.

By Wednesday I was completely unpacked and had pictures on the wall. I
will take pics and post them in the next week or so.

I started getting a little sick yesterday. Had no voice when I woke
up. I felt ok until late afternoon and then started feeling pretty
rough. I'm on adrenaline right now so don't feel too bad but my voice
is squeaky. I'm hoping I feel a lot better by the race. Taking vitamin
c and drinking a lot of water.

This is the first time I've travelled while in OA. I talked with my
sponsor about it. She travels a lot and gave me plenty of tips and
ideas. I'm giving it to God and know it will be fine.

I feel so much better this year than last. I'm wearing smaller clothes
and am more comfortable in my skin. It's a nice place to be.

I'll report back next week.

for when you get back - I had a chance to ask my female issues doctor how long to stop eating certain foods when doing an eliminate diet to look for food sensitives. The answer was 2-3 months. So, one stops eating a food for 2-3 months and then adds it back to see if there are symptoms. I am leaving this same message for anyone who I think I have read past posts talking about food sensitivity issues. I think I have read posts where bloggers thought they could drop a food for a couple days and then add it back in to test. Evidently not.

it is Sunday and I looked to see what time your race was and realized it started at 5:35AM! - good heavens! But I suppose that is so people can catch planes home that same day.
