It is finally Friday again but I cannot complain. I think this week went by rather fast though I am sad I have to give up Lilly on Monday already and it seems to fly by fast. I am still not happy that I will not see her for about two weeks in April…It sucks!
So confession Friday. Hmmm…Okay so I wanted to run by Sullivan Park today and I was with Lilly. It started to rain, but we still played anyways. We love playgrounds in the summer…it may never get here though. Well, when we finished playing I confess I almost drove to Sylvan Beach in Vernon, NY. It isn’t that far but it is a hike. I wanted cotton candy. I do not know why but I have been craving it. I am trying to drop weight and I forgot my lunch today. I have been eating pumpkin ravioli. It is so good, but I did not bring it today. I was starving and I did not have enough time to go out at lunch. I craved cotton candy. I am proud that I resisted the urge and did not give in.
I am happy that I had a good run on Tuesday this week, but I want to run way more. I feel like I get a little lazy. I do have a treadmill so the rain is no excuse and Lilly sometimes cooperates when I am running…sometimes is the key word. I can tell when I have not run much because this weather starts to depress me. I love running and being inside all day sucks. I wish I could run and play outside all day. It would be wonderful.
Pretty soon, Lilly is going to be driving me around!!! I am going to be too old and cripple to drive myself.
I found the picture of my worst bib number. I was at the WDF (Not What Da Fuck)…rather Woman’s Distance Festival in Deruyter. My friend Katie came with me and I took one for the team. I took the infamous number 69. I didn’t care and yes I did have some laughs along the way…so here it is:
So I started out on this whole mission this year. I love the blogging and the running. I remember the weekend I had to go to Chambersburg. I was having bad luck with my car too. I had a low tire pressure twice on my car.
I was going to run the Tipp Hill Shamrock Run in Syracuse and even registered….but I decided I needed to flee town and get away from my race creeps…so I guess this could be the confession for Friday and I do not care if he is listening or not…it was just plain weird. I cannot block the person because my blog is public. After I got dumped by the VP of the douche of the month club, I did not run for a while. I forced myself to do a half marathon in Pennsylvania and thought I was going to die. I needed to get back into running and it was getting dark out so stupid me I thought this guy would actually be okay with just running with me. So we went running and it was fine. Then his date bailed on him for some rugby formal. I said I would go and I went and got completely hammered. That was the last time I was drunk. Drunk makes me stupid. Even before we went to the formal as FRIENDS, since I made it clear I was not ready to date, he made up this schedule. He asked when I had Lilly since I said I was not going to run on those days. The next thing I know I get a schedule of all the days we are running all the way to July. Then, he wants to take me on a date. Instead of taking me on a date to the movies or something he takes me to Ohio to a music concert and gets a hotel. I don’t know about you but when you take someone on a date for the first time to a hotel, it is degrading…especially when the person gets into the room and lays on the bed. After this happened, I was done. When I got picked for the Five Dates In Five Days contest, he sent me pissy texts because I did not want to date him and why was I doing this. I told him he was a dick and I blocked him. Then on Valentine’s Day he tried to contact me and I told him to leave me alone. He is at so many races and I just do not want to be around that. When I ran the Syracuse Half Marathon he was there and shouted out my name going up the hill. It made me stop for a little while and want to barf in my mouth. I think I was repulsed and he raised the red flags…
Moving on, I still am not sure about Maine. I think I am leaning towards going and riding before I leave for Maine. Maybe I will bring the bike to Maine. I have never biked there. We will see….
As for life in general, I miss biking and running this week. I feel jipped because of this weather and my work schedule. I cannot wait to go back to 4:05 next year when I can leave work. That still gives me some time to go running before I get Lilly. I think I will love this!!!!
So next weekend I have a one mile race, along with two half marathons. Now that I have the half marathons under my belt and somewhat in control if I watch my steps, I want to do well on the one mile race. I like the trophies and I think I am a better sprinter. Have a good Friday.
Ohhhhh I need new shoes and my pure connects are not working out…what lightweight shoes can you recommend????
