Today, I participated in my first virtual race. It was a 10k and it felt good.
I tried to get the BF to go out with me, but he pussed out (it is 34 degrees outside!) and went on the treadmill for a few miles instead. I guess he did almost 4 miles on the treadmill.
I started at exactly 1pm. Not like a regular morning race, but this is the warmest part of the day.
My sweat-free face before I started slogging. I did the pics of myself in the warmth of my car.
I saw some hawk hanging out and didn’t really care that I passed under him twice. Thank you Mr. Bird for not pooping on my head.
I don’t know who Cassie is, but her friends provided some motivation at my last mile!
I was doing great! I am so glad they wrote this down for me 🙂
Post slog thumbs up.
At the 3rd mile, I was getting some side stitches. I think it has to do with me being dehydrated. Did I drink water before I slogged? No. I had a turkey dog and a cup and a half of some sludge the BF considered coffee. I walked the last .21 to my car as a cool down. Would I do that in a normal race, no, but I was on my feet moving.
There were a lot of people running on the greenbelt. There was this guy that passed me on my 4th mile. Just like any other race, I got passed. But he was wearing a puffy down jacket. So weird.
Now, on the my xmas eve festivities of making an egg nog cheesecake, and preparing my boeuf bourguignon for a xmas day dinner tomorrow.
Did you know that I think my BF just got me VODKA for an xmas present?!?! I am a little upset about that. Getting alcohol for gifts makes me feel like an alcoholic, no matter how much I drink. He gave me 6 bottles of wine for my birthday this year. I told him not to do that again, but I don’t think he listens. Grrr.
Does your significant other give good gifts? I got better gifts years ago from him. Now, it’s last minute things without a lot of thought.
What is on your wish list this year? I could use a new purse. My Burberry bag I have been using is starting to show some wear. I have had it for 7 years or so.
Happy Holidays Everyone!
