I am well. Grass is growing.

...and pitchers and catchers report in a few weeks.
It doesn't feel like I ran a marathon three days ago. [was it three days ago?] I feel normal. Mind you, I haven't tried to run yet. I did go for a 47 minute walk with a new blogger who I intend to turn into a runner though she doesn't know it yet.
I'm drinking water to get back to "clear." [you know what I mean?] and eating regularly. Sleep was good last night. Tonight will be too short because (a) I stayed up to watch Project Runway. I didn't like the challenge but agreed with the judges' decision to cut Andre; and (b) I worked on my fantasy baseball draft sheets. (we all have our vices now, don't we?)
Tomorrow the governor and US DOE Sec. are coming to one of our schools so it'll be a media feeding VIP day.
I feel like running but can also feel a few sore spots. I'll probably wait until the weekend. I have my eye on the Gasparilla 15K or Half Marathon on Feb. 25/26 in Tampa. There's another 5K to look at in two weeks. Easy does it, huh?


Did I load this post up with enough parenthetic asides? How about italicized thoughts? At least I went easy on the semi-colons.

I happen to like parenthetical expressions. (Glad your body is holding together.)

I like dashes - so that I can separate thoughts in the same sentence - without having to go to the trouble of punctuating - properly.

Glad you're recovering nicely!

David, Glad you are feeling so well. It must have been the beer!

I should break into a version of Schoolhouse Rocks' Conjuction Junction what's you function[but unless I'm drunk, I'm too embarassed to sing in public]

I'm glad your recovery is going so well.

So cool that you (and your legs) are feeling better...well, not so bad anyway.

And, if you Florida guys get excited about pitchers and catchers reporting, think of how much those of us in the cold world are in anticipation!

Parenthetical or otherwise...baseball means spring...renewal...hope for the Cubs...promise of disappointment....

Glad to hear I'm not the only one looking forward to spring training.

Though I'm usually at a disadvantage in the fantasy draft, as it usually occurs somewhat close to March Madness.

I'm already planning "sick" days. "Sick" in that I'll be on the couch for two Thursdays and Fridays in a row...
