At our meeting place, the sun rising.
Once we got to the starting line, my nerves kind of calmed down and I realized that it's just a silly race and all I wanted to do was finish without walking. The first three miles were mostly hills. So. Many. Hills. Now, we had been training with some hills and inclines, but not like what we came upon in those first three miles. The last 5 3/4 miles had some hills, but by the last one, my legs burned like they're never burned before. If it hadn't been for my beautiful partner booking it up the hill next to me, I would have stopped and walked.
My pink tights.
So incredibly grateful for her.
My grocery cart.
His grandma found this gem her camera and printed it out for us...
I love Olive so much.
My finished hat!
This morning I told myself I would sleep in as long as I want and then spend the day on my behind. Well, as long as I wanted ended up being 9am and sitting on my behind didn't happen. I didn't feel sore or awful like I thought I would. So, I loaded up an Insanity video and worked out for 45 minutes. I knew the day would be spent eating and eating and eating yet again, so I had to do something physical. Plus my 365 day goal will not be broken this early in the year. I chose one of the easier ones (upper body weight training) so that I could give my foot and legs a rest. The only thing that is hurting is my foot. I think I injured it on a previous run and to keep running on it was a bad idea. Oh well.
Sean T. and I don't get along.
I showered, ate breakfast, and headed to my dad's where I proceeded to work on my newest knitting project. I have spent about 3 hours on it, ripping it out twice because I don't know what I'm doing without boy's mom. I'm afraid I'm doing something wrong, but I will see her Thursday and she will fix things I did wrong. She's magical. I also stuffed myself on carrots, celery, fruit, (gluten free) chicken wings, and chili. I guess I could have done worse, but I've eaten so much this weekend. I can't wait to get back to my high protein diet tomorrow. I also worked on (and finished) my letter of intent for my application. Now, I just need two more letters of recommendation and I can turn it in. This is way farther than I got last year, so I'm pretty excited. Of course, I took breaks to watch the commercials out of the corner of my eye.
Moe and I not really caring about the game.
My knitting that I'm not sure is going well.
Now, I am going to go home and cuddle up in my blankets and hopefully fall asleep early. I haven't slept much this weekend, again, but who needs sleep, really?
