There's Emma, who not only is an Oompa Loompa the week of the marathon, but is also performing Miley Cyrus' "Girls Night Out" with her friend Alyssa at the variety show at Greenlodge on February 27th. There's also the fact that I picked up my brand new bifocals today, and although the frames are totally cool, I do still feel a bit old as I get used to seeing at different levels through the transition lenses. I know I'll get used to them, but it's weird. And to top it all off, it's February ... my favorite month of the year.

I have been accepted as an entrant in the 113th running of the Boston Marathon. I know I am an entrant because I am raising money—and by the way, I am almost 2/3 of the way there—but it's still pretty cool. I was talking about it at the office today and was surprised that there are people in my group who don't even know that I am running. I feel like it's all I ever talk about these days, but I guess not. I did run 13.1 last Saturday around Dedham, finishing in an impressive 1:51 which means if I stay at that pace, I can actually qualify for my next marathon adventure, if there is to be one.
