1. Break is OVER! I've had a 4 week break, now we're back to my marathon of marathons. 2 weekends in a row, 1 week off, then another!
2. Run-Blog-Sleep!!! Bloggie Meetup. They'll be quite a few of us blogging-runners participating in the marathon this weekend. Not only is Mel (Tall Mom) organizing a dinner, but I'm also going to have a chance to run with friends!
3. Sony Sponsorship! Sony has contacted me again and they will be sponsoring me for the marathon. They will be sending the fun new runner-inspired MP3 player as well as the bloggie video camera to test out. My review to come post-race! I also get a t-shirt to wear (hopefully not too hot) and they're covering my race fee. Thank You Sony for supporting the marathoners!!!
4. Twilight! The latest movie (Eclipse) in the twilight book series comes out this week and we'll be in Seattle-- closest big city to Forks, WA (where the series is set). If you know nothing about Twilight, you live under a rock! TEAM EDWARD!

For our Canadian friends (Marlene) that's a high of 21 degrees C and a low of 13 (acc to weather.com)! My goodness that sounds so much colder!! What do you get in the winters there? -150??. More importantly it looks like I can get a tan out by the pool on Friday!
