Five Down....

Well, I had my 5th treatment on Monday. It went great! The stupid Benadryl made me unable to keep my eyes open, and it also made me unable to sleep because it makes me so twitchy! So I enjoyed an hour of non-sleep, but not awake....haha. It's not so bad. I forced my eyes open for a while to read and then I closed them for a while and kind of rested. I didn't get sick though, and I haven't felt sick yet!

The rest of Monday was way fun! I got to get a pedicure with my aunts and Granny and then we went out to lunch. And after that I went to Raging Waters with my family and my aunt and cousins. It was so much fun!
Tuesday was a great day. I don't know why, but I always feel the best on Tuesdays....weird, I know. I always have my fastest, best runs on Tuesday and I am rarely tired.

Today has been great so far as well. Yesterday and today I was able to run the whole time without stopping!!!!! 27 min non-stop. That is a new record for me since surgery! Such an exciting milestone. I am signed up to run the Hobblecreek 1/2 Marathon this Saturday but since I can't go longer than 4 miles, I am just going to join my dad for the last 3.1 and run the end with him. I am excited to run with him and I've been looking forward to it since we signed up in March. I am really bummed I can't do the whole thing, especially because they give out cool medals to the top 100 male & female finishers and cool plaques to age group winners.....and now I am just hoping to run the last 3 miles without stopping :( Ah well, it will be really fun to meet up with my dad and [hopefully] finish with him!

I am still losing my hair, but it doesn't seem to be as fast. Maybe cuz its short now so I don't notice as much when little pieces leave my head. But I still am a fuzz monkey!!! For now!

Well......if anyone knows of a part-time job that won't make me work Mondays and will be flexible if I get sick then....let me know! I probably need to start doing something semi- more productive than just reading all day!

  5. Correction: Scratch "look", insert "ARE", add "and are so damned amazing"
