My birthday weekend was completely awesome. I took tons of pictures with my brand new camera (thanks BF for an awesome birthday present!) But….I left the connector cord at the BF’s house so I can’t upload them yet. Sorry!!!
I treated myself to a half day of work on Friday and then headed home to get ready for a night o’ fun. BF and I had dinner at the Olive Garden. Nom nom nom. Lol, I love me some OG! Ended up taking more than half the plate of spaghetti home, but that’s always the case there.
Then we hit the bowling alley with my friends. My roommate brought crowns for the girls to wear and got me sparkly beads and a delicious cake. It was a fun, but very late night. I knew then I’d be bumping my long run from Saturday to Sunday.
After sleeping until about 11:30 Saturday morning, BF took me to the zoo! That was the surprise he had planned. I’ve never been to the National Zoo so I was so excited. We got to see the pandas and tons of other animals. It took us five hours of walking around to see everything. Ooof what a workout!
I asked BF how his legs felt afterward. “Dead,” he said. And I chuckled and said it was good prep for this weekend.
Hours of walking around also landed me with a mondo-huge blister. Like holy crap pain. I could barely walk the rest of the day. It managed to pop on it’s own so I’ve got it covered up and it doesn’t hurt as bad now, but I couldn’t put shoes on yesterday, so that obviously meant my long run got canceled.
That’s kind of been the story of my training for this race anyway. Have awesome plans to run, only to have life get in the way of it all. Oh well. It’s not the end of the world. My weekend was totally awesome and I’m not letting a missed run and a giant blister ruin it!
