Kelly the Culinarian: Baby got back

Baby got back

I need to get my butt in bed fast because I've got an early morning tomorrow. I'm meeting Kim for my last long run of this marathon training season.

So here's what I've been up to.  I got an extended life battery for my phone in hopes that I can use it all day long during an upcoming business trip. With the factory-standard battery, my phone only lasts about four to six hours.  Ironic, since I have the Droid Charge, that it doesn't hold a charge very long.

But now, my cell phone has quite an ample rear.  This certainly won't fit in my armband for running. I weighed it - my phone is now six ounces.  Ridic.

New phone in hand, I dragged Tim to the happiest place on earth - IKEA! He'd much rather clean every surface of the house than go inside this terrible place, so I made it quick. I bought two picture frames for my ego wall to update the wall with my new photos. I got a collage with the photo from the tri that MacKenna took, along with photos from the Venus de Miles ride, the Karhu 5K and the Heatbreaker Indoor Half.

I also had a bit of an arts and crafts project with trying to frame my name in of Chicago Athlete magazine. It didn't turn out so well, but that's usually how my craft projects go.

And the before and after:

I'm loving all the medals on my homemade medal display.  Time to rest up so I can train to get the next medal!

Has your phone always been like that? I notice mine drains so quickly when I am outside of 3G area. Is that why your battery is so craptacular?

I love your ego wall!

Yes, if I turn off the GPS and WiFi, I can get slightly more out of it, but it still won't last a full day.
