Getting Ready to Leave!

Well, I'll be leaving around 9am today and heading to DC for the Marine Corps Marathon! Thank you to EVERYONE for all of your Good Luck wishes, advice, support and encouragement! You have all been an amazing part of my journey, I feel very lucky to have found such a great group of bloggers!

Contest Update - Erin, Aron, and Jess - your prizes will go out next week, sorry for the delay!

Check this out - The girls over at Twenty Six Point Two have chosen me to be their "Weekly Pace Setter"! The post should be up on their site later today!

**IPOD SHUFFLE QUESTION - I usually use my Nano, so this shuffle thing is a little new to me. When you connect your Shuffle to your computer and pull up ITunes, should I be able to click on "shuffle" (under "devices") and see what songs I have on my Shuffle? If so, mine isn't letting me do that. Under Devices my Shuffle shows up, but then the screen to the right just says "Itunes Store" and is blank....any thoughts? I just want to see what songs I have on there. Any help would be appreciated!!!!

Well, I better finish getting my stuff together!!! I'll be updating from DC, so be sure to check back!!

Good luck this weekend and have a great marathon. I hope you get your shuffle working by then.

Yay - good luck!

On the shuffle... when I connect mine, I always have to go to settings and then select a playlist to sync to it. When I do that and resync it, everything shows back up.

Good Luck! And have a great weekend!

On the ipod - I have a nano also, but I'm guessing that on the left you have a'options' of what you are viewing: the store is one of them. Click on My Music, Purchased, or Devices (Etc.) and it should change. If you have the screen I'm thinking of.

I hope that helps - If not I'm not sure what you are looking at.

Have a good race!!!

I have no clue on the shuffle. My wife uses one, but I don't.

PS. I'll look for you at the race :)

Good luck on Sunday! The weather here won't be *ideal* marathon temps (sunny and a bit warmer), but I'm hoping we'll all have a great time, anyway!

Good luck in your marathon tomorrow. Have lots of fun!

Did you get the answer to your shuffle question? I have one too. So if it still doesn't work, let me know. But you should be able to check what song you have on it from iTunes.

Words of Wisdom

"Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing will disturb your peace of mind.
See the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
Think only of the best, work only for the best and expect only the best.
Forget about the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
Spend so much time on the improvement of yourself that there is no time to criticize others.
Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you."
~ Chistian Dior

"Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do."
- Dr. Spock

"Fall in love or fall in hate. Get inspired or be depressed. Ace the test or flunk the class. Make babies or make art. Speak the truth or lie and cheat. Dance on tables or sit in the corner. Life is divine chaos. Embrace it. Forgive yourslef. Breathe. And enjoy the ride. "
