Today was a long day at work. I arrived at 5:45ish and did not get out until 6:30PM. We got a lot done in the work in process conversion, a little more than I expected so that was great. I do have to go in tomorrow to put some more forecasts in, but that should take only a few hours. I will go in later in the day.
I was able to get in a run today after we were finished. I ran 8 3/4 miles in the cool air and it felt good. It was about 18F outside so it was easy running. It was already dark so I had to be careful for the ice, but no problems. I was able to pick up the pace on the second half of the run and finished at an average pace of 8:15. To tell you the truth, the only reason I ran at least 8.5 miles today was so I could get to 100 miles for the month. Normally I would have only run 5 miles but since I didn't have a long run planned this weekend, I stretched it out.
A funny coincidence just happened as I am writing this. I am watching Saturday Night Live and the host is Neil Patrick Harris. I just watched a blog of his recommended by a friend called something like Dr. Horrible. It was a TV show style blog about him being an evil Dr. (like Dr. Evil from Austin Powers). The twist is that it is in the style of a musical and he likes a girl who meets and dates his arch nemesis. Hilarity ensues. The other coincidence is that Taylor Swift is the musical act. I was seriously going to write about her in my blog today since this morning. Have you heard her song "Love Story"? I usually don't listen to much new music as most of the time I have no idea who it is and don't get to listen to the radio but I have been hearing this song on our company music system and I did hear it on the way to work today. I really like this song. I am not sure why, but it is quite catchy. Just my thoughts there. Hopefully she will preform it at one of her musical segments tonight. Besides, she is quite pretty as well.
