What else have I been doing in the meantime?
Since I burned out my iPod Shuffle during the 1/2, I bought myself a new iPod Nano. Bright orange so maybe I won't lose it.
It wasn't really a treat, though. Really, it's just a tool. I wanted to reward myself in some way, but I wasn't really sure what to get. I don't view buying new running tools as a reward for running. Also, I didn't want to reward myself with food (because it's a bad habit & I've been eating crappy anyway). So instead of those options, I bought these:

On Friday, a weird thing happened. An opportunity fell in my lap to get another dog. We've already got 2 dogs, but I've been wanting a dog to train as a running partner (at maturity). Awhile back, I had the opportunity to get a puppy from a litter of someone on post, but I decided it was the wrong time for a puppy. Now, approx. 4 months later, one of those same puppies needs a new home. After an extended discussion with Mr. X, I'd like to introduce Penny!

The next big decision I have to make is my fall marathon. I'm not sure which one I want to run. There's a local run in Verona that's very inexpensive & requires no traveling. I think that'll end up being the one... but I'm not even sure I want to run a full length marathon anymore. I've got some decisions to make, to be sure. But for right now, I'm focused on Penny!
