CPS #214

Ok, it's time to get serious. I officially signed up for the Capitol Hill Classic 10K tonight (race date: May 15). No more dragging my feet. No more "I'll register later." No more "Uhh, that scary scary hill at the end of the race." ithinkicanithinkicanithinkicanithinkican. On a related note, the HR director at work is a hardcore runner, and she's been encouraging me to do a running training program. Errr. Running with people? I dunno about that. What if I slow them down? I think she sensed my hesistation when I was talking to her in the hallway yesterday. She offered to put together a training program for the 8K I'm shooing for in the fall. With her and Meg (who texted me earlier today "Did you sign up for the 10K yet?"), I'm very lucky to have motivators.

Janice the Tuesday night spinning instructor was out today. The substitute was a lady who used to be a student and then she decided to take the instructor class. You go, girl! It was a good work out. I would totally take her class if she was subbing again.

I finally watched "The Hangover" last night. Yes, yes, I'm very behind. My former officemate let me borrow it and I felt bad that I hadn't returned it yet. It was funny, but I don't think I would shell out $10 to see it at the theater.

Here's my take on CPS #214. I was determined to use some chipboard elements so I dug out some cherries from American Crafts. I wasn't so precise with my stamping and accidentally got some on the pale green part and mis-stamped a pink flower. Solution: cover up the ink with the border strip and double stamp flowers so that they all look like the one that I goofed up on. Heh. Crisis averted.
