Now THIS is Dangerous!

Do not give a geek Nike + gadgets. It is like giving crack to an addict! I will end up walking my "inner geek" to death just to play with the software!

I've not only had to go out and "test" how well it tracks my walk once, I went out for a second, longer walk. Then I spent the better part of an hour playing around with all the cool stuff on the Nike + web site, and created a Nike + Mini for my facebook page. I've also set some goals for myself on the Nike + site, and entered The Human Race 10K for next Saturday.

Now I want to go out and play with it some more!

I think my sister has created a monster...

FREE House Cleaning for Women Undergoing Chemo

Cleaning for a Reason

If you know any woman currently undergoing chemo, please pass the word to her that there is a cleaning service that provides FREE house cleaning - 1 time per month for 4 months while she is in treatment.

All she has to do is sign up and have her doctor fax a note confirming the treatment. Cleaning for a Reason will have a participating maid service in her zip code area arrange for the service.

There May be Hope for Me Yet

Yesterday, we did a 6 mile walk. Through some sort of bizarre miracle, I managed to walk the first 4 miles in just under an hour, make a pit stop, and do the remaining 2 miles in just under a half hour. Afterwards, we had a very fun brunch, where we talked about everything from sex to serial killers. We're definitely a very interesting and entertaining bunch!

I walked to 86th and Lexington Avenue to catch the subway, and by the time I got home, I had logged over 9 miles on my pedometer. This was followed by some serious dancing at my high school reunion, which brought my total mileage up to 13.8 miles for the day. Not too shabby!
