Florida Diary – Day 6

Today is cold but getting warmer. I decide to go running for the first time since Friday. This time, I decided to run to the North pier, which is 1.5 miles each way. Within about a half a mile, my lungs felt like they were on fire. Normally my lungs are in good shape, but I couldn’t breathe well today. Not sure if it’s the salt water or what. In addition to trouble breathing, I also had a runny nose for the entire run. I was so tired when I completed my run that it took an entire hour to recover.
I worked on the Digital Mantis website for a few hours in the afternoon, and then met up with Scott and Liz for happy hour. We were both happy to see each other, after being around parents for most of our respective trips. Liz told some good stories and we got a chance to talk for the first time in a while. I’m glad we were able to talk, because we don’t do it often enough. I know in the past we both felt awkward around each other, but I think that’s improved a lot lately. I’m glad it’s cool now, because it’s fun to hang out with her.

I got back from happy hour and ate dinner with my dad (my mom and aunt went to Epcott center), and just relaxed for the rest of the evening.

Tyler arrives tomorrow, and it’ll be getting much warmer, so a lot of fun should be on the way…

Oh yeah, I just realized that today is Valentines day. I guess I didn’t really miss it, although I wouldn’t mind having someone to spend it with…

  1. Tyler is coming too? Our cousin, I am assuming? Man! I am missing out. All I did for my birthday weekend was go to a funeral in Chicago! It makes me feel better to know that the weather isn’t that great right now!

  2. UPDATES! Come on Sow, I want to live vicariously through you some more. But I need updates!

  3. I just did some updates…. I didn’t realize that anyone was reading this, so I didn’t have a sense of urgency.
