Burning Building

Well, it's been an eventful weekend plus!  My building at work caught on fire Sunday.  The work in the city and there is a Bank of America in the building.  That's what caught on fire.  It was closed and no one was in the Bank but there were people in the building (about 15).  Scary because the fire alarms didn't sound!  We have regular fire alarm drills so knowing they didn't sound is pretty scary!  No one was injured though.

So needless to say, the building is closed and I had no work the last two days.  Yay!  But I have to go back to work tomorrow and we are working from a different law firm.  It's not going to be fun, that's for sure.  We don't have our files and we have to download our backup information.  Therefore, I will not be posting for the rest of the week.

Um...also, Matt and I had a HUGE fight on Sunday that lasted to Monday and I was crying for a day and a half!  Yes, I'm such a girl.  I actually really thought we were going to end things.  And with a flight this weekend, I was really upset.  But we worked things out last night, when calmer heads were at work.  So, still together.

And like I said, Omaha is in my sites for the weekend. 

As far as food goes, I was having a relationship pity party for myself and didn't want to eat just to torture myself.  Don't worry, I ate and got in all the good health guidelines.  But I feel that today especially, I have a little better handle on my eating.  Hope I can continue this.

On the exercise note, I've been exercising regularly.  Since I had off today and it was in the 40's, I decided to do a long run of 6 miles.  I ran a pace of 9.58 min/mile.  Not too bad.  My toe was still hurting but not terribly bad so I ran through. 

Here's to good things in the future!  Positive things to come hopefully!


  1. Glad it all worked out! Great job on getting out and running when things have been so stressful!

  2. Sorry that your work caught on fire! How scary! Glad everyone was okay. Also sorry that you and your boy had a fight. Just remember, everyone has fights so keep calm and carry on. Glad you didn't skip the food, that's definitely a bad idea!!

  3. Glad you and Matt worked things out! And that no one got hurt in the fire!

    *raises glass* to good things in the future!

  4. Fights suck! Glad you guys worked it out.

    That is so scary about the fire! Glad you're ok. Yikes.

    I saw the name of your blog on a different blog and had to check it out.
    I live right over the border in WI and am also signed up for the Chicago Marathon. It will be my first one! Last year I did my first 1/2 marathon.
    Like you I am signed up for the Shuffle, 2 1/2's, and a few other shorter
    ones. Good luck reaching your weight goal and in your races. Only one month until the Shuffle!

  6. I saw that on the news about the building being on fire! At least you got a couple days off :D

    Sorry about the fight with Matt - glad you guys patched it up - have a safe trip to Omaha!
