By Friday afternoon, my brain is absolutely shot. I can barely see straight after a week of teaching teenagers (and almost dying a few times during our drivers ed adventures), working out, not making dinner for Billy and not practicing any hygiene.
So, this post is especially random.
1. I guess I did take another picture at the LV 1/2 marathon: a self-portrait of course. This way I can look back ten years from now and wonder why I am so happy at the starting line when I am about to feel a lot of pain for a few hours.
I wore my headphones during the ROCK and ROLL race….hmmm, isn’t that a race with music at every mile or something like that? I don’t remember hearing one band. It was one of those races that I just needed to zone out and let my music push me along.
2. I finally got my garmin working again and was able to download my splits from Sunday. My goal was to not let the first mile be my fastest. Mission accomplished. It was fun to look at the splits because I couldn’t see my garmin the entire race (I forgot about that little thing known as the light button) and had no idea what pace I was running. I didn’t exactly stick to negative splits though.
3. The most amazing Natalie from New Zealand sent me some amazing treats that I cannot get enough of….especially those marshmallow cookies. America, we need to get on the marshmallow cookie train.
And I also got some delicious treats from Christina, Canadian candy. That Caramilk bar is long gone. Sorry, Billy.
Why does candy from everywhere else taste so much better?
4. The amazing Courtney is hosting a Virtual 5K for a little boy that needs help!!
Hope that you have the best weekend ever, you get in some great workouts, eat some chocolate and watch Elf at least once.
What percentage of the time do you wear headphones while running?
Do you like to analyze and look at your garmin stats for hours? Please someone come forward and say yes, otherwise I am going to feel really lame.
What are your Friday night plans? I need some fun ideas of what to do.
