Ok. First things first.
I miss the hour I (read everyone, but I am self-centered in this department) lost when we sprang forward.
So totally down with the fall back version.
It is now 10am on Sunday.
I need more down time! hahaha
Second things second.
Yesterday I was to run/walk the Rock ‘n Roll half marathon in DC.
Originally it was the marathon to celebrate the end of being 44 and ushering in being 45.
Then I scaled back to a half because I wasn’t honestly training to complete another marathon.
Yes I said another because I have at least completed one marathon in my life time and like to insinuate woo hoo me.
But marathons are no joke.
The training and hours it takes to pull one off plus the marathon itself, yikes.
Now I didn’t bag the half yesterday because I couldn’t physically do it.
Nope. I have been Fitbit racing a 23 year old quite healthy and active young man for the last month.
Although mama lost each time, mama got as close as she could and pushed herself right well.
No. I didn’t do the half because, OMG, what a pain in the butt (read ass) it would have been to get my package and get to the race.
I knew from the start – don’t do this – I don’t like big races in DC because it is too much trouble to get there.
Note to self – listen to that voice that says, um no, pick something else.
I even had a beautiful and kind friend willing to mill around DC for up to 4 hours just to accompany me into DC and get me to the race.
They wouldn’t mail the race items to me.
“Open House” to pick up the race items was Thursday and Friday in DC.
For me, it was a 40 minute trek ONE WAY to leave work to pick up my race stuff and then another 40 minutes to get back to work, um, during tax season.
Not counting how much time it would take to grab my stuff, nor if there was traffic either to or from.
Instead. To usher in my 45th year on this planet, same said beautiful and kind friend and I hiked a pretty tough trail at Great Falls (at least 4 miles)!
We then enjoyed a pretty yummy Mexican lunch and got a mani and pedi.
Plus I got an eyebrow waxed.
SA-WEET and HAPPY ENDING OF 44 TURNING 45 INDEED!
Icing on the cake?
I am headed to Oahu, Hawaii this Christmas with my sister and her family.
Mama is finally gonna get to surf with her niece!!
I have waited 13 years for this event!
Hello love, I have been waiting for you!
So happy and so cool with missing my half now.
45 and surfing in Hawaii baby, SO DAMN COOL!
Happy March People!
