Running on empty

So I'm sitting here having an Alias marathon. Not to belittle the best show ever, but I haven't been to the gym in like 2 weeks. I can't run because of my foot surgery and I'm going CRAZY!!! My friend at work is a 12 time marathoner (yes, I'm jealous) and he did a short race this weekend. I did one the weekend before my surgery. What aggravates me is that for the next three or four weekends, there are big races (popular ones with thousands of people participating and the courses go through downtown and over some other major roads). I want to be out there SO bad... But I can't. It's depressing.......

To top it all off, I scheduled my right foot surgery for the end of December. Which means that it will be many many months before I can start running seriously again. I'm going to try to do one before the surgery if I can. At least a 5K. If I can't run it, I'll at least walk it. For old times sake.

So last night I got 3 hours sleep. (I have to be at work at 3:30 am. I do the morning show.) It was worth it because me & Wes went downtown. We went to this ghost theater show. It was a bit cheesy, but free. Afterwards, we went to a new restaurant. New for us anyway. It sits near the cruise ship terminal. Nice place. So we decided to do this once a month. Go find a restaurant that we've haven't tried and take a stroll downtown. Walking around downtown at night was nice. There's not that many tourists and the tourist package peddlers aren't all over the place yelling at you to come see there new hotel. (I hate those people!)
