I really need to learn how to blog better so that people will read this blog

I want to write about so many things, like why I am a disaster runner at water stops or how it feels to eat a Toblerone at mile five of a half marathon when you have no fluid around to take it with (I'll spoil that one now: it feels bad) but I always want to reference other things I read or other people's blogs that I read but I have NO FREAKING CLUE how to do it. Like tagging and all that crap. I'm so addicted to the internet that maybe I should put "Learn to use blogger so that people in the online community may accidentally come across it and read out of shear boredom" on my "To Do" list (right now it consists of "Go to the International Center of Photography exhibit" and "Send package to Zoe" and "Buy shelving"...seriously? Is this what my life has turned into?).

In other news: I am going to Aruba on Friday. I actually spent 35 minutes looking to see if there were any races in Aruba but couldn't find anything. Probably because most normal people go to Aruba to relax, not tire themselves out from running in the 85 degree weather (yea, I said it. And what, Manhattan?). I will have to take a running hiatus and go scuba diving for three days (I know. KILLER.) and then my dad and I are supposed to go deep sea fishing and ATVing (no I did NOT just turn a noun into a verb). I am really excited to try kitesurfing although it's $275 so I may have to pass because getting my next level of scuba certification is already cleaning me out. All in all, I'm stoked for the week, stoked to be in warm weather and stoked that I have an actual marathon to look forward to (okay, maybe I haven't signed up for it yet, but I'm pretty much going to do it because I already told my friends in DC that I was coming down that weekend to do it. So I can't flake out now). And I may even have a running buddy, but I'm not going to say who it is until I figure out how to actually use this online application. What I lack in internet skills, I make up for in running skills.

Hope you are having a fabulous time in Aruba!!!

To reference other things, you can make hyperlinks in your posts using the blogger interface - select the text that you want to link, click the icon that looks like a globe with a chain in front of it, and paste in the URL. Voila! Feel free to drop me a line at absolutromantic at gmail if you want more help. And if that wasn't the help you needed and I was patronizing, I apologize :)

I haven't signed up for DC yet but I really think I'm going to do that and Virginia Beach. I'm trying to save money so it seems like doing two in a weekend is the way to get that done!
