I was in this weird mindset yesterday. For the past month I was looking forward to running this organized fun run with a few of my friends and it was free! I had started training a little but got busy, got a new puppy, and am learning all about being a new mommy. Then I realized I not only signed up during a busy work weekend and had to cancel piano, my cousin is in town visiting, all the way from Paris. Not Paris TX but Paris France. Then I got invited to my friend’s Baby shower. She is visiting all the way from Texas. I am sad to have to miss that. Seriously. I had major FOMO. I sent her a gift but it’s not the same! :(. I also had to miss out on a cinco de Mayo arribe hustle fun run that my friends had organized and I was at home relaxing. My puppy started school. And I have to get my sister to and from school for her internship. Oh and it’s the beginning of the month so I was at work and work had a big health fair event. So we got to the end of April and I started thinking I would never be able to run much less a half marathon. I was dreading the busy weekend and I thought I wouldn’t make the run and I was sad. I didn’t want a DNS (where you sign up or get injured or sick but never make the start); so just on a whim I went early to pick up my shirt and bib. Yesterday I started thinking: but it’s free! I signed up! some of my friends from November project are going to be there! why don’t I just go for it!? I really wanted to do this run and I was thinking I was having to sacrifice or make sacrifices because of the busy weekend that we had, maybe just not going to do it not gonna make it so I would be too tired or something and so it was hard! I had serious FOMO.
Yesterday I walked two miles through the park to get my shirt and didn’t make it to the gym. I went to work and walked through the fair a bit.
Then we went to puppy school and he did pretty well. I cooked a healthy Adobo (Filipino) meal in honor of Manny the Pacman underdog. I don’t know anything about the bloody sport, but I usually vote for the underdog:) Got sister to her volunteer internship.
Last night I laid everything out. I was getting into running mode. This morning I woke early to get sister to her other shift. I actually made it 5min before the 9a start and caught up with my friends!
The 10k run was actually really fun and we walked a couple times just to catch our breath. We didn’t mind about our pace to stop and take a quick pic in front of the LACMA lights. I thought we did really well in just about an hour, and then I peeled off a little before the finish to get home for a shower.
Then ended our sister day with you guessed it more sugar
