this has been one of those weekends where i wish it were a 3-day weekend…like i need another day just to recover.
friday nite was such a beautiful nite out, that i made the impulse decision to get my “long run” in after work…mission accomplished. 9 miles. but almost found myself locked out!! i brought the correct apartment key but the wrong front door key-lucky one of my neighbors was around 🙂
saturday i did my “good deed for the month” and helped out at a volunteer event that the Flyers do quarterly with the Central Park Conservancy-we usually do a volunteer event with them in the park once every “quarter” of the year. this one was mulching and raking leaves, so we all got a little dirty 🙂 but had fun. and thank god the rain held off til the end. then last nite we celebrated a teammate’s birthday over at Fusion, a pretty cool bar/lounge over in Hell’s Kitchen. Had fun hanging out and chatting-and knocking back 3 very good mojitos while doing so 🙂 didn’t get home til 2, didn’t fall asleep til 3, couldn’t sleep in cuz…
this morning was the Gridiron Classic 4-miler…I wasn’t planning on racing the thing, I just wanted an excuse to get in 4 miles today and listen to some good music. Besides, I don’t think mojito-loading and 4 1/2 hours sleep make a good race 🙂 nice day, yet another shorts day…i’m sorta liking this global warming thing this winter (though I will not be saying the same this summer, for sure!) i wound up running it in 34:20, an 8:35 pace…miles 1-3 were 8:44 each (i kid you not), topped off with an 8:08 final mile. then right afterwards, headed to our ex-president’s place for the “transition” exec board meeting. and i was hoping to get in a nap before meeting friends to watch the Super Bowl, but somehow I don’t see that happening.
as for the Super Bowl, I’m sorta indifferent as to who wins, as long as my numbers come up 🙂
