Quote du jour:"An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day." - Irv Kupcinet
Giveaway du jour: Oh hell. I can give away another box. Really. Or at least go through another box and try.
I'm a bum. (On the giving side at any rate.) Another book down, another day of shirking the garage.
Exercise du jour: No option. I have to do the 20 minute run from the 5th week of the couch to 5k. I've done all I can to prepare mentally and gastronomically:
- Hung out with a bunch of runners for the early morning Thanksgiving Turkey Trot - check
- Watched Chariots of Fire - check
- Eaten lots of carbs - check
Done! I decided not to try to deal with my outdoor-running neuroses. You read it here first: it is possible to run for 20 solid minutes on a manual treadmill, alternating with running around and around the house. The dog is now convinced I'm a lunatic, but it's done.
