She promotes herself and her butt.

So, Sunday March 22, 2009 will be my one year anniversary with my adorable husband Eric. We will be in Moab for the weekend because I am running the half marathon. See, I managed to even make our one year anniversary all about me! I’m the worst!

Anyway, I’m sure I’ll have more to say on the matter, however, many things that I would like to convey on the subject of marriage are neatly summarized in the latest article I wrote for Square Magazine. Should you feel so inclined…

Here is the link to my article.

I love you all and hope you’re having a wonderful day! Things are going well over here in Cubicle City, except, MY GLUTES HURTS SO BAD. It’s probably from all the running, but I’ve never had this problem before. Maybe it’s because I sit more than I ever have? Or because my butt, is, um, a little larger? You’d think that would help! I have had so many meetings lately, and I usually spend half of them dancing around in my chair. It’s really a predicament because I can’t shout, “MY BUTT HURRRRTS!!!” in the middle of meetings, or explain how I’m training for a marathon and the glutes are a very large muscle group and maybe I’m not stretching them enough etc. Even though I DO walk around the office complaining about the pain…loudly, to anyone who will listen. Last night Eric and I went to the Jazz game with some friends, and those seats were just killer. I even made Eric give me a massage sometime during the first quarter. Yes, on my butt. He really is the best husband ever. Anyway, any advice on alleviating severe gluteus maximus pain would be greatly appreciated.
