I Liked the Run, or, It’s Not You, It’s Me

Capital Area Runners represent

So, at long long long last, I ran the Love the Run You’re With 5k on Sunday. But after all that time–the 2-week postponement, the fact that it was no longer being held on Valentine’s Day or Boy Monkey’s birthday weekend, and the fact that now, thanks to my big mouth, I have a Valentine’s Day-themed shirt that I can’t really wear until next year (despite the fact that I said I’d wear it every day)–the whole thing just felt a little anticlimactic. And I feel like I should mention that the shirt makes my breasts look, um, ample.

But I don’t mean to rain on everyone’s parade! I had a great time–lots of my friends came out to run, and the course didn’t feel nearly as daunting as I thought it was going to feel. I ran 28:40 with Boy Monkey (actually I kept running away from him, so I started before and finished before him, but somehow we still had the same exact time, so I look like a much better girlfriend than I actually am). And for a February race, the weather was great–a little cold once you stopped moving, but perfect for racing.

Thankfully, Cheryl took pictures. I didn’t. Blogging FAIL.

For now, I’m off to do my first track workout in months. I swam my butt off on Monday, so I skipped yesterday morning’s workout. And I had dinner plans last night, so I’m headed out solo on my day off. Woooooooooo random day off!

  1. Sorry I didn’t see you! I was trying hard not to end up wet LOL. Good job on the race.

    I’m at the mile 5 aid station at the National Marathon. I’ll try to pay better attention then. ;o)


  2. Ha! It was still fun to get out on the roads and it was warmer than recently, if not slightly windy! I just wished I wasn’t so mentally damaged that I posed for a picture like I had super cute pink shoes, when I had already changed out of them…

    You did great, your first race and what, 2nd run? The day after you did a LONG run, I might add.

    The monkey shirt made my boobs look less than ample (they actually look negated), so maybe you shouldn’t blame the shirt.

      Are you calling me fat?

      Just kidding–it was awesome to get out and run. I just wish Wes had trained for it 😉


  3. Ha! No, Dolly Parton, I’m calling you well endowed. Genes I don’t have!


  4. Can you loan me that shirt? It was a good day for racing weather-wise. It seems strange that racing season is upon us, though, with so much snow out there, doesn’t it?


  5. Yay the race finally happened! V-day theme or not the shirt is cute. And ample breasts? Wow!
