The night before last I woke up at 4am to a really new and strange feeling. I felt like my heart was beating really hard but lower in by abdomen and then I realized that it was actually the baby having hiccups. At least I'm getting used to the baby waking me up now :)

|08:18 pm - Kicking|
While I've felt the baby kicking and moving for weeks, last night Joe put his hand on my belly and the baby kicked him for the first time. Probably the first of many, but perhaps the most exciting. Joe thought it was pretty weird.

|04:42 pm - Sick|
I am finally feeling better and haven't had a fever all day today. It sucks to miss work last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for vacation and now to have missed Wednesday and Thursday for having been sick. At least I'm now starting to think I'm hungry and am only aching in the head. Oh well, that's life. Hopefully I can go to work tomorrow and then rest during the weekend and clean up the apartment. While I love snowboarding, I hate the extended winter we're having this year with the extended flu season.

|02:30 pm - Life|
It's been forever since I last posted. I've been so busy snowboarding on the weekends and working during the week. This last week my brother came up from college in So. Cal. and we went snowboarding (his first time) with me, Joe and Josha. We were up there for 4 days and by the end my brother was addicted. He is currently looking on the internet to buy a board. On our 4th day up there it dumped snow, 2 inches an hour. Great day if you enjoy deep powder but it took like 7 hours to get home since they kept opening and closing the highway (avalanche blasting). My brother left today and we played an ultimate frisbee game in San Jose which was fun but tiring. I'm not good at it, but am slowly getting better.
Now back to work for Monday and Tuesday. We leave for Breckenridge Colorado to go snowboarding for another 4 days on Wednesday. We will me our 20 day total of last year's boarding during this trip. Definately addicted.
Now I wait for my new favorite TV show to come on...Grey's Anatomy.

|04:41 pm - More running|
Today I ran 13 miles (a half marathon) and feel good. Then first half of the run was physically demanding for me and for the last hour and a half it was pouring rain. But I feel great now. I completed the run in about 2 hours and 10 minutes. I think I'm feeling stronger with each long run which is good as they get longer and longer. Also, I've signed up for a 5 mile race on new years day and am thinking about doing the San Francisco half marathon as part of training during the first week in February. It's a flat paved course which will be good for me.
I'm not sure I will ever do another marathon though because training is exhausting.

|11:38 am - Running|
Today was 12 miles and despite my fear of failure and worry over potentially being sick, (it seems I do have a cold) I was able to run it in slightly less than 2 hours. Not bad. I think I'm feeling like a stronger runner all the time. This week so far was 3 miles on Monday, 6 on Tuesday and 12 today. I know it's just gonna get harder before it's over but I'm feeling a little more confident. It's hard when there's no one to train with, as I have no one to complain to or keep up with or fall behind. But this is often the way I like to do things, on my own to prove something to myself. I can't believe today was almost half a marathon. That thought makes me feel better.
Current Mood: tired but more confident

|01:56 pm - DARPA grand challenge|
So Stanford won the DARPA grand challenge a few minutes ago. I think that's awesome, for a few reasons. 1) Joe helped contribute to the making of the vehicle (or making the vehicle autonomous); 2) this is a big step toward not having to drive on road trips but instead enjoy the drive that your car takes you on; 3) Joe and I made a bet which involved the loser giving the winner the most romantic day (I bet that someone would finish the race this year). So if you want, you can help Mr. not-so-romantic out with ideas :P

|12:40 am - Cirque du Soliel - Corteo|
We would like to buy tickets to Cirque du Soleil soon. The dates we are thinking of are Wed. Nov. 23 or 30th at 8pm in SF or any other date that someone suggests. I'd just like to solidify the date so that we actually get tickets.
