Received my henna/indigo (ALL NATURAL, NO CHEMICALS OR SALT!) hair color in the mail yesterday and did a test with hair from my hairbrush! Henna is baby-poop green and smells pretty horrid - you have to leave it on for an hour, but can cover it with a shower cap so hopefully the smell won't give me a headache. It's a bit darker than I anticipated, but it's really a lovely color - dark brown with VERY subtle auburn. I'm nervous about applying it, but think I'm going to do it Friday night. Gray hairs be gone!

EKG was normal yesterday. Will have blood work done tomorrow and a MRI is being scheduled. I feel fine. I really think this is more medical care than needed.

Half day at work then home to wrangle the baby.  I am going to call in a minute to get her into the doctor.  I am sure there's nothing much going on - she seems so happy otherwise but is getting this fever intermittently and its been since the weekend.  That one tooth still hasn't popped and she has a bit of a cold.  But for a baby sent home twice from daycare this week due to fever you wouldn't know. She's eating and playing pretty well as usual ...
I am also pretty spoiled by my office building. I realized as i stepped on the subway this morning that i forgot to put on mascara but no problem! I popped into the drug store on the main floor and bought some new. Now i have a back up in my desk for days just like this.  There are about 5 coffee shops, a food court, 2 grocery stores, a dollar store, my bank and more right in the building.  Working here I rarely go out during the day which is not such a good thing ... but it is very convenient.

6:22am:  I'm ready for the weekend.  Just sayin'.
Another gorgeous day!  I have a trainer beatdown after work, but hope to get outside for a nice walk/jog afterwards.  Gotta take advantage of these perfect days.
I leave for Canada next weekend!  Aack!  I have a lot to do between now and then, that's for sure.
I listened to an awesome podcast last night on my walk ... The TED Radio Hour show from last week called Champions is definitely worth a listen to.  There are 4 segments in all, but the interviews with Diana Nyad and Amy Purdy were outstanding. Incredibly inspiring.

Work was emotionally exhausting and could have ended badly. In the end no one was injured everyone went home safe. It's exhilarating but takes its toll.
The thought of getting changed and running was too much. excuse.

Tomorrow is another day. And it doesn't involve work!

Well off to LBS and in typical fashion I could have ridden yesterday. I never saw a drop of rain all day long - SMH

Got a nice mountain bike ride in last night also. Missed the group ride by a couple of minutes due to running late at dinner so I just went off and did my own route and worked on handling skills on the Rigid 29'er that is in the mix for Tour Divide duty. Need to get suspension fork for her to make my final decision because right now it is definitely a no!

Unable to train yesterday due to a company project all day Kick-Off Meeting then by the time I got home late at night, I was too tired.
 
I will go to OC this weekend and just decided to do long runs (easy pace) to make up for these past 2 days.  Also will swim in the ocean and try to guesstimate 1 mile....

Silly guy got the giggles when it was time for his picture :).
Turned cool here again - 55 degrees here this morning! Feels like Fall instead of Summer. Some friends stopped by last night so we didn't get the kids to bed until 10:00. They won't be up and ready to go so I can get in a swim at the Y before I teach my class. DH is out of town for meetings so I will probably be on the trainer for a workout  I guess.

A little fun in the pool.  I was up and moving faster than the sun so I went to the pool instead of the lake.  I have another swim tomorrow so that will be in the lake.
