The Bad: As I was getting ready in the morning, the cord from my hair dryer got twisted up in the cord from my Chi (hair straitener for those who don't know) and my Chi fell off the counter and one of the ceramic panels broke off. I was pretty close to tears and had to dig around under my sink to find an old school curling iron to use. It's been so many years since I've used a curling iron that I almost forgot how! I called Jonathan to tell him about this horrible turn of events and he told me that we could not afford to spend money on a new Chi so I would be getting a grocery store flat iron. If you've ever used a Chi, you know that you can't go backwards after having one! Needless to say I was devastated.
The Good: I ran 7 miles and survived to type about it! You all, that is the furthest I have ever run. Before that, I had run in a couple 10K races (6.2 miles). Billie has been better than me about running in this snow. It's been so yucky that I've only run two times in the past two weeks. We got together on Wednesday to run 2.5 miles and I was huffing and puffing so I was worried about this 7 miler. But Billie stuck by my side and 1 hour and 11 minutes later we had run 7 miles and it felt like a wonderful accomplishment. Now I still have 6 miles to add to that in the next 5 weeks before the half marathon!
The Good: When we got home Jonathan got out the superglue and FIXED MY CHI!!! I used it today and it's as good as new!!! You don't even know how excited that made me. He's my hero!
