Three Things Thursday

1. Taper madness: I'm pretty sure that I'm driving everyone around me crazy. Including moi. A little over a week left and the questioning myself and my training is kicking in big time. Oh, and - of course - I'm checking the weather reports (yep, several) at least three times a day, and do I now know the course by heart. No kidding. Shoot me a question about the elevation profile at mile 8. I'm probably able to answer it.

2. Running skirt: Guess what the cat dragged in? No, I'm kidding. Dutch customs was kind enough to release one skirt I'd ordered at RunningSkirts.com. I wanted to test drive it before the marathon, so I wasn't too happy to find out that Dutch customs was holding on to it.

Yeah, yeah, crappy photo. I know. Get over it.

They are still holding the Chocofleurs runningskirt hostage, though, so, the whole 'dressing up as a chocolate' plan might not work out after all. As Zoe pointed out on the Silly Girl Running Facebook-page, they are probably prancing around in it. ;) I hope those fleurs make their butts look huge. ;)

3. Spring weather: I'm taking back everything I said about the beautiful spring weather. We're in the middle of Monsoon 2011 - as we speak. What the bleep!

3a. Throwback Thursday: My grandfather and a tiny moi. I still don't master those Carnegie Hall piano skills, by the way. ;)

I'm sure once customs see how cute you look in your skirt, they'll release the other to you!

The skirt is super cute!

I hope you get the skirt in time! Just another thing your tapering mind can obsess about. :)

Ugh! Why would they release one and not the other. That is crazy. I agree, someone there is wearing it!

You have rain. I have snow. Yuck. I hope it will be clear, dry and sunny in a week! ;-)

love the skirt!!!! can't imagine why they would need to hold on to one while releasing the other... strange....

I know! Releasing one and not the other is just weird! But then again...I don't work at Dutch Customs...it might just be 'normal' to them...
