100th Post

I admit it: I'm a bad blogger.

Here I am, typing my 100th post, and do I have a fancy giveaway contest to celebrate with? Negative. Do I even have a list of 100 things you never knew about me? Nope. What can I say? My name is Librarian on the Run, and I'm a bad blogger.

The only way to redeem myself is to announce my next race, which will be...tomorrow! The weather report looks favorable (it should even be a few degrees above freezing at race-time) and I think that it will be a lot of fun.

The race is a trail run - my second ever. The course is described as 90% single-track trails with some dirt fire roads, so in addition to taking the opportunity to get out and race in the off-season, I'll also be working on number 2 of my 2010 List O'Fun. I'm excited!

After the race, I plan on going to a running store and purchasing a new pair of running shoes. There aren't any running stores closer than an hour's drive from my home, and I've been meaning to do it for a while so I can finally have someone analyze my gait and suggest shoes that are really best for me. The race is held not too far from the store that my orthopedist recommended, so it will be a great opportunity to go.

With all of the running excitement, one must not forget that tomorrow is Championship Sunday, so the afternoon will be all about football. I'll be rooting for the Jets (in the playoff-absence of their stadium-mates, the Giants) and then watching the Saints-Vikings game.

Of course, after the games, I'll go back to being a librarian and tune in to Masterpiece Theater for a new version of Jane Austen's Emma.

After all is said and done, I'll get to work on my 101st post: a race review of my second trail race ever and first race of 2010.

Ever on.
