Holy crap, you guys, guess what I am doing right now!
If you guessed watching Star Trek: the Next Generation on Netflix while blogging, you get a medal. I think I might pee myself in excitement (I’m kind of like a puppy). Oh, Captain Picard, I love your shiny bald head. Ok, truthfully, I’m like 5 minutes in to the first episode and I haven’t seen this show since I was young, so this could be horribly disappointing. Also, I’m super ADHD, so I always have the tv on while blogging. It’s a thing.
Anywhoodle, this was the first run I’ve had get rained out. I was actually finishing up by the time Fearless Leader came to get everyone off of the trails, so I got my 2 miles in (fall back week FTW), but the lightning was a little scary. Not scary enough that I wouldn’t have finished a longer run, but I think we’ve established that I lack the common sense gene. I heard that the 14 mile marathon group finished their run, though.
After our run, we went to First Watch (don’t worry, Rebecca, Amy and I checked the menu last night and ordered the tri-athlete omelet). Apparently, we chased off a couple with our shenanigans. Judi informed me they were glaring the entire time. I’d say I feel bad about it, but that would be a lie. Mollie didn’t even make any goose noises, so I don’t know what they were so pissed about (maybe it was the smell?).
In other news, I got a haircut. I go back and forth on how I feel about it, but a quick session with the flat iron might fix things.
My haircut happened to be right near Columbus Running Company, so I stopped in to pick up some KT tape. I also inquired about Turtle Thursdays, which the lovely Michelle has been inviting me to. I’m hoping to make it out in the next week or so, although I feel like I’m cheating on MIT. Don’t judge me, I’ve gotta sow my wild oats (or something)!
I arrived home to another package (I love packages!). This one was a prize I won for the virtual 5K for Autism from Alicia. I was told I was getting a surprise, so I had absolutely no idea what to expect. It was a tiny package, so I was really wondering what could be inside. Any guesses?
And because all of the pictures are unreadable, the necklace is from Endure and here’s a picture from their web site. And I could genuinely never afford this necklace on my own, so thanks again, Alicia! Question for you all, should I use a silver chain or a black cord?
This is getting long, but really, thanks so much for all of the support and advice on my last post! I will have to stick to this weight loss plan, because, frankly some of you guys scare me a little. I still can’t believe I posted those pictures, but I’m not ashamed of them. And I still love myself (maybe a little too much). I’m going to declare “Weight-Loss Wednesdays” so people who aren’t interested aren’t forced to skim. I’m keeping a list of things to write about.
I’ll be running (another) 5K on Monday. What are your 4th of July plans? Anyone else running a race?
Edited to add: I thought I published this 4 hours ago. Awesome job, self.
