Thursday! It’s here already!
I celebrated by another morning workout. I know- kinda lame. But that’s sometimes how I roll in the middle (ish) of the week. Just go with it. :)
Yesterday I did elliptical, but I wanted to get one more decent run in before Saturday’s race. So today, I strolled into the workout room and it was empty. Again. I sort of love it. The only other people I’d ever see in the morning is the woman who refused to acknowledge my existence and the old man running around in his super tiny swimming trunks after chillin’ in the hot tub (I’m still weirded out at why he’s doing this at 5 in the morning?). So I welcome the alone time.
I did 4 miles at almost exactly an 8:30 pace. I’m not wearing anything to track mileage for Saturday’s race, so I’m hoping this is my natural pace that I’ll fall into (considering I’ve been hovering around it for the last month). I’ve worn my Nike+ for a couple races, but end up just driving myself mad by looking at it over and over. I’m sure they’ll have clocks at the mile markers. That’s all I need.
Now for a few announcement of sorts…
I got a haircut last night! It’s like I’m a new woman. :)
Actually, it was just a trim. And that’s a lame announcement.
Surely I can think of something better?
I am signed up to do the Hustle Up the Hancock!
For all of ya’ll who have been reading for a while (seriously- I can’t believe you’ve made it this far!), I went to support my friend Mon as she attempted it. That didn’t work out so well- but I’m going to let her tell you that story in her words eventually. ;) Anyways, Mon refuses to do it this year, so when her friend started to get the team together, she asked if I’d consider it.
Heck yes I will!
At first I wanted time to think about it (it’s a bit pricey for me when it comes to events), but it was sort of a “need to know in less than a week” sort of thing. For the last couple of years it has sold out within an hour or two of registration opening. For real- I had to double check that I wasn’t accidentally signing up for the Boston Marathon or something… it’s crazy how many people want to do this!
So on February 27th, yours truly will be climbing the 94-floor stairwell of the John Hancock Building. I even have a partner in crime to participate in the insanity… I
bribed convinced asked Megan if she’d want to do it, too.
I’m not sure, but she may be just as crazy as I am- because she totally said she would! So watch out friends- there’s training that will need to go down and we may be coming to a stairwell near you!
That did not sound creepy in the slightest.
I’m hoping that training for this will be just the thing I need to change up my workout routine. Not gonna lie- I’m on the brink of running burn out. Some serious cross training will do me good. :)
And finally… I guess it’s time I tell you about who won the Adora Giveaway, huh?
Please email me your mailing address so I can pass the info along and get your chocolate to you! :)
Oh and thanks for all the comments on my random things. I can’t believe how many of us loved Doug!!! Hilarious. And the getting kicked out of band story isn’t nearly as cool as I wish it were. The new teacher didn’t really care for my friend and I (probably because the old teacher loved us). As soon as he found an excuse to get rid of us, he did. We were late. Once. Got the boot. Lame.
I’d like to think I’m over it and moved on, though. And it’s just fun to say it happened. :)
Ok kids, it’s time to get to work. Later!
