Dogs are cute. End of story.You need to REGISTER for that half marathon so that you are committed already! It's important to do that. Otherwise you'll keep bailing on your workouts because 'You might not be doing the race anyway.' REGISTER. NOW!!I love what your Grandma said about being the nicest person- it's so important. I believe in that too.Feel better today- it's Friday! And it's supposed to be cold because it's Christmas. Decorate the tree, warm up some cocoa, and watch "The Family Stone" then all will be right in the world.
