You know you're falling behind on life when...

Your Google Reader is exploding with close to 200 unread items and you haven't had a chance to respond to any of the birthday notes you got on Facebook. (P.S. Thanks to everyone who left me messages! It made my day!) Eekk! I have been a busy bee lately.

Let's catch up shall we.

Tuesday I went for another four-mile run after work. It felt good for the most part, but my legs were definitely tight afterward no matter how much I stretched and rolled them out with the Stick.

Wednesday I wanted to do another four miler, but my super tight legs would have none of it. I did manage about 1.5 miles of running and another half mile of walking before they were too bad.

Yesterday was my birthday. (So long 21, hello 22.) I celebrated by going for a sports massage, which was a little wimpier than I needed it to be. I'm used to a massage therapist who will really work those knots out, unfortunately, the lady I had last night didn't hit them all.

I spent the rest of my birthday night listening to the radio broadcast of my friend's football season opener until they cut it off to air Obama's speech. (Sidenote: Yes, I'm following the presidential race pretty closely, but don't cut into my football time with it. That's almost as bad as all this bird porn stuff Vanilla keeps telling us about.) My friend's a punter and I missed him having a great game and even making a tackle, which is something that punters don't get to do very often.

Then of course was the Half-Fast fantasy football draft. (Geeze two Vanilla plugs in one post, what has the world come to?) I got some good players and some really not so good players. I'm just going to have to cross my fingers and hope a few rookies have really awesome breakout seasons.

As for my weekend plans?

Back to D.C. tonight for birthday dinner with my friends. Then heading to a bar to catch the Terps soccer game against UCLA. Saturday is our football home opener so I'll be tailgating the day away.

It's a good thing it's a long weekend. I have a feeling I'm going to need it!
