This week has been low key and uneventful. I’ve been slowly (very slowly) unpacking and cleaning up my new house.
I’m linking up with Running with Spoons for thinking out loud. It’s my favorite link up to do.
I’m still recovering from the Air Force ball. I know…Despite looking like I’m 12, I’m not as young as I used to be and it takes me forever to recover from social events past 7pm (kidding).
I didn’t say much about the Air Force ball last week but we had a great time. It was a lot of mingling and talking with other spouses. It reminded a lot of a wedding: cocktail hour, dinner then dancing and dessert. I will say they had unlimited lobster tail…it was fabulous. We were out late but it was a great time. After having my fair share of Lobster tails, I had steak at 10pm. Someone said “if you don’t leave her 10 pounds heavier, you have failed”. That was probably true HA!
Random thoughts of the week:
It is definitely getting lighter later. I have to wait until it’s light to go out for a run. That can be somewhat frustrating I guess. I could run in the pitch black but due to my recent fall in broad daylight and uneven pavement…I would rather just wait and do less miles. Less miles is better than no miles and back to the hospital.
I had my first workout since falling. I ran 16X400s with 1 minute rest. It wasn’t as fast as I would have liked but it was also on the road and with pouring rain. I literally went through 3 changes of clothes for 11 miles. (One after warmup, one after workout and one after cool down). I didn’t feel like getting blisters or have my goodies showcased to my new neighbors.
Speaking of getting lighter later: It’s freaking October 1st. Oh my stars.
On a really important note, my personal friend Amelia is a finalist for the Women’s Running Magazine Cover Contest. It would mean a lot to her if you could vote! She is truly incredible and while she does live in that other state of NJ (i.e.: North Jersey) I’m proud to call her one of my good friends. Ha, in my two years of living in NJ I have realized that North and South Jersey are two different states with central Jersey just a rumor that it may or may not exist.
So (please) vote for her here.
