He's a Winner!

I want to thank everyone for their condolences on the loss of my grandmother.  It meant a lot to me.

A few weeks ago I mentioned that Jeremy was entered in a drawing at work for a free entry fee and weekend to the Cleveland Marathon.  He found out on Monday that he won the drawing!!  He gets a "free" vacation day for travel, $100 Visa card for food, two nights in a hotel, and reimbursement for gas or the use of the company vehicle to drive there!  Yay!!! I registered myself for the half yesterday.

The only bad thing about this trip/race is that will be only three weeks after the Derby full/half for us.  Which means not much recovery or taper for the Cleveland race.  There is a 5K each of the Saturdays that I'd like to do, so I was thinking of doing them, then doing a long run 8-10 miles in the middle of that week, half way between the two halves. 

We are planning on going to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, touring the American Greetings Headquarters, and possibly going to the Pro-Football Hall of Fame in Canton and to Cedar Point Amusement Park as well.  Of course to do all that we would need to take an extra day or two vacation and make it into a longer weekend trip. 

Has anyone ran a full or a half with three weeks in between? What kind of training did you do in-between?

Also, I've been having trouble with emailing myself pictures from my Iphone.  It's not turning them the correct way when it comes through email.  I don't know if a setting has been changed or what.  Any suggestions?
