    Pax, you crack me up. Your sense of humor is right up my alley. My own honey and I have taken to saying "parp" randomly to one another thanks to you!

    Dear legs,
    Good work today at the 1/2 marathon & thank you for working in the manner I wanted. I wanted 2:20 & ended up 2:21.

    Dear Tummy butterflies...wrong time to come to the party...good thing for dense bushes at the exact right time.... We need to figure out a way to get food into you during an event without you going south or making me feel funny.
    I got the best of you though & kept on running

    I just said PARP! to my honey and she cracked up. We may be sick but we still have our sense of humor.

    Dear friend/colleague who died:

    You are probably the only Mormon Stake President friend I will ever have, and I wouldn't be surprised if I am the only communist colleague you ever had.

    I liked working with you; I learned a lot from you; I miss you.

    Whatever it is that you've got now, I hope it is good for you.
    Each day is a gift, that's why it is called the present.

    Malkin, I'm so sorry for your loss.



    Lip sunblock is one of my collection of "small things" that goes into a jersey pocket, along with tiny jars of chamois cream and regular sunblock, and a gel and a Zenergize tablet for longer rides. It all just lives with the rest of my gear so it's ready to go when I am. Things in my seat pack aren't very accessible, so that's reserved for "in case of" stuff like flat, chain and cable repair; space blanket; and Epi-Pen. Anything I actually expect to need or want on a ride goes in a pocket.

    Malkin,

    I'm so sorry about your friend and coworker.


    Dear stray cats: Why do you keep finding your way to our house? Do you have some sixth sense that we'll care for you? Well, it's off the vet you go this week if the stars align. So, please show up Tuesday evening so that we can capture you for surgery on Wednesday. We've named you Petunia since you like to help us with our yard work. You're a very sweet and friendly kitten; I sure hope we can find a forever home for you.

    Dr P: Thanks for being such an awesome vet. You have quickly become our favorite vet and that's saying a lot because all the vets at your clinic are great.

    I'm putting it in the bag because it's the sort of thing that I'm not terribly used to carrying around and odds are good that it'll end up in the wash!
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    As long as it doesn't end up in the dryer, it's all good

    Malkin, I'm so sorry for your loss. Big hugs.


    Dear universe, why is it that you keep insisting on sending me guys who dump my a** and then return a few hours later to demand me back and then get peeved to an extreme point when I refuse? Did I somehow fail that test the last time and you felt you needed to retest to see whether I've grown a spine? If you'd like to explain yourself, now would be a real good time. You're making the whole crazy cat lady gig seem so much more...agreeable.

    The other advantage of having it live with the rest of my cycling gear is that it automatically comes out of the pocket when I'm done with a ride. Take off shoes, helmet, HR strap, sunglasses with mirror, and gloves; empty pockets; all of it goes into the mesh backpack so it's ready for next time.


    The only difficulty is when I'm in marathon training and I bring the lip moisturizer and sunblock along on long runs, too. I don't use enough of either to have a third tube (the "first" set of containers lives in my purse) - they'd just go rancid - so I do have to remember to transfer them from my running vest to the cycling pack. But that usually happens roundabout the time I start missing the weight of my Epi-Pen in my purse. Another thing I don't have three of ... one lives in my seat pack, and the one from my purse comes along when I run.

    Okay you're right, it is more to remember than I thought. At least the pack guarantees I'll keep track of all the dedicated cycling stuff. And it's only an issue for about six weeks in each marathon training cycle.

    Dear self,
    Be sure to look at the labels on the spice jars. Apricot-mustard scones are not nearly as appealing as apricot-ginger...
