The question of the day, I suppose…
It’s obviously no secret that I am single…very single right now. Dating? Yes. Marriage? If I find the right guy, yes. Not in a huge huge rush for that, but as I mentioned previously, I do miss being in a serious relationship…in the last few years I’ve been lucky to have any relationship last longer than a month.
So, when I was home for the holidays, my mom and aunt were showing off the wedding “save the date” announcements they were getting from the sons/daughters of their friends…all in their 20s, younger than me. It’s just seemed like one after another these days. It just has me so confused…if the 30s are supposedly the best time to be single, why is everyone settling down in their 20s? Is it because NYC has one of the toughest dating scenes around? I guess we’ve got “Sex and the City” to partially thank for that image…as much as I love that show. (and i know damn well that show portrays an unrealistic image of “real” NYC life. As I do not have the face or body of Sarah Jessica Parker, and I would not be able to afford her apartment, wardrobe, and lifestyle.)
Anyway. That aside.
Last nite had a nice pizza dinner with the Flyers at Patsy’s on the east side…was kind of an orientation of sorts for the NYRR Long Training Run on Saturday, which we’re the pace leaders for. (I’m just helping out for the last 4 miles…yay, I get to sleep later.) Apparently there were issues with the one in the summer so they thought it was a good idea to sit down and review. I think last nite went pretty well…we’ll see on Saturdaty. As for me-I did 9 miles of the 9:30 group in the first Long Training Run in the summer…I personally was dead-on with the pace, but there were others in my group trying to speed up. Nothing I can do about that I guess but just not let it have an effect on me. Hope the weather cooperates for Saturday-rain looks to be in the forecast. :-
Anyway, a 10pm start for last nite’s Yankee game turned out to be too much for this girl…crashed much earlier than I wanted…not that I missed much. Chicago is up 2-0 now, and I really hope they take it in 3 or 4 games…for the sake of the Chicago marathoners.
