First order of business…we have a SweatyBands winner!
I sent you an email Brianna 🙂
Thank you to all of you for the comments yesterday. It was hard to share that and everyone was just so supportive. I spent most of yesterday trying to cheer myself up. Joe got the ball rolling and proved a) he’s an awesome husband and b) he knows me really really well.
Yep, he got me more macarons. They fix a lot of ills, I tell you. They were delicious. This was breakfast and dessert lunch (aka what came after my grilled cheese) and bedtime snack but even though it took all day, I did finish them.
And I posted a couple months ago about how tacos cure stress. I decided to take my own advice for dinner.
It worked for a while.
I took no pictures from my gym workout but I ran 5 miles and still was feeling frustrated so hit the bike for another 45 minutes. I then did an awful lot of procrastinating looking at race websites for a few hours and taking silly online quizzes.
I liked the description of me 😉 Also, I weirdly always kind of thought he might be my presidential twin. That’s probably an odd thought. And it’s not like I know anything about Millard Fillmore to know if he’s more like me, it’s just a strange thought I’ve had in the past.
And I bet you’re wondering if all the race website stalking did any good? It did indeed. I’m still tossing around ideas for big September and November races and local 5ks or 10ks I might want to race as tuneups as well, but I did officially sign up for the Columbus Marathon. I love that race and I’m super excited to go back. The hardest part will be not eating at all my favorite places until after the race.
And today is Tempo Thursday but also weirdly short on my plan so 5 miles with 3 at tempo and I’ll probably follow it with a short bike again or Insanity.
What do you consider your hometown race? Have you ever run it? The closest races to where I live are probably in DC but I’ve never lived there and I haven’t gone more than a handful of times since I was about 16. I lived in Columbus in college and going back there always feels like a second home, so unless I go insane and decide to run the backwoods 50 miler that IS near my actual home I was raised in, the Columbus Marathon is my home race 🙂
Who is your presidential spirit animal? (if you’ve taken the actual quiz, go ahead and give your result. if not, guess!)
