The real speed training, however, came later that night. Matt has been a total space case lately. I was in the kitchen cooking up some brussels sprouts (green thing for the day!) and apparently Matt left waffles in the living room. alone. With a cup of Franks red hot buffalo sauce he had been using to dip fries in. I hear a crash, followed by some whimpers, and i SPRINTED to the living room with a Usain Bolt like speed. Turns out waffles was curious about the hot sauce, and rather than use caution and lick the edge, she had plunked her ENTIRE FACE into the dish, obviously snorted some up her nose in the process, and then freaked out realizing how hot it was. She also knocked the dish on the floor, spilling hot sauce everwhere, and then was in a frenzy running along the living room wall, smearing her face along it trying to get the hot sauce off. So, my evening was spent coaxing the dog to drink milk to help the burning taste go away, cleaning her face and paws, the floor, and the WALLS. It looks like a buffalo sauce murder scene.....
In other news, fleet feet sent me an email apologizing that my face was so ugly it would have broken the camera, and offered me half price registration for their ladies half marathon in june. It read something like "your face is broken, and so is your checking account. we pity you."
Speaking of half marathons, i might not run the Chi-Town half on April first because it interferes with an important training run. I am looking at other races around that time, and there is ZIP to be had. Any one know of any early spring half marathons? I am looking at the Springfield half, because it is cheap, and their medal is shaped like a penny. I love Lincoln.
