LA Marathon Training

I am finally back on track with my training for the LA Marathon.  After my car accident on February 1st, I was forced to take a short break from training since I couldn't even stand up straight.  I ran one day last week and then got side tracked with the opening of Cole and my parents coming out to visit.  Well this week I got myself back on track and I have logged 20 miles so far and tomorrow I will do a 20 mile run.  I have been eating up a storm today in preparation for the run.  I just had dinner and I am still hungry so I think I may make some more food.  :)

In November I will be running in the NYC Marathon if all goes as planned.  I will be running it for charity and will be asking for donations so start saving those coins and get them ready for donation.  :)

Cole is up and Running

Friday, February 17th was the official opening night of Cole.  Mom and Dad came in from Morristown, AZ to join Fredy and I for opening night.  The 3 weeks of rehearsals, 1 week of tech rehearsals, and the week of dress rehearsals leading up to opening night all paid off.  The cast did an incredible job Friday night and we went back to the show tonight.  Our first review was published today and we got a fantastic review.  Here is link to the review...

February 2012

So February started out with a bang.  Well more like someone rear ending me and less like a bang.  I took my car to the body shop today and they sent me an estimate of about $800 in damages.  The lady that rear ended me said she wanted to pay for the damage out of her pocket but when I tried to call her Friday the phone numbers she gave me didn't work.  I tried calling her on Friday since I had not heard from her yet.  Good thing I insisted on a police report and I had already notified my insurance company about the accident so I just completed the claim.  Over the weekend while I was out of the office the ladies insurance company called and took responsibility for the accident.  Thank you USAA for being such an amazing insurance company and processing the claim so quickly.  I dropped my car off today and now I have a rental car.  The body shop hopes to have my car fixed by tomorrow.  And the best news is that they are going to fix my mirror for me.  Yay no more duct tape to hold my mirror back onto my car.

If you see a lady driving a 2001 Beige Jaguar on the 405 north bound in the mornings watch out cause she doesn't pay attention and she will try to screw you over.

Cole Week 3

Last night we completed our third week of Cole Rehearsal with our designer run.  We have tonight off then we move to the theatre to begin tech on Wednesday.  I am very excited for opening night next Friday.  I hope you all have your tickets for the show.

If you are not familiar with Cole Porters work then google him.  We all know several of his songs we may just not have realized that he wrote them.

I am very proud of the hard work this cast has put into this show.  A normal Broadway Musical has about 18 to 20 songs in the show and this show has some where between 55 and 60 songs.  We have a few major productions numbers and some fabulous showy numbers.  In my true fashion I have made some fabulous one liners and one that came out last night was "There is never and excuse for a lazy bevel."
