and why hasn’t it seem to have caught me yet?
during the course of the day Saturday…after the race, and later that nite at a b-day party i attended, i heard the news that 3 more Flyer couples (well at least, 3 couples that each have at least one Flyer in them) got engaged. crazy!! where are these commitment-minded males? i can’t find them anywhere. it seems to me that these days, dating to males is a reality show to them-it’s like The Bachelor to them, how many girls can they kiss, and even if they pick one they don’t feel obligated to stay with the girl.
anyway. my dating rant of the day. yeah, it’s been awhile. you’re welcome.
so, changing the subject, said b-day party saturday nite was a surprise 40th b-day party for a very cool teammate of mine (though i do have to say, she doesn’t look anywhere close to 40!) anyway, it was a lot of fun and she looked surprised 🙂 The actual party took place at Cascina, a nice Italian place in Hell’s Kitchen-our crew took over the party room upstairs. we got kicked out at midnight, so the party moved next door to Zanzibar, where the party went into the wee hours. i remember quite a bit of dancing-on the floor and on the table (the latter not done by me ;-),) trying to “crash” a bachelor party, and screaming along to “Hollaback Girl” (c’mon, you know this sh*t is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S!) what a day/night. i was wiped out on Sunday.
speaking of wiped out, that’s how i feel right now. while this speedwork was more tolerable than last week, and i didn’t have to cut it short, was still quite tough. the west side hills from 93rd to 86th…4 round trips (8 repeats total), then another mile on the bridle path. man, no wonder those hills kick my a$$ in races. Derek attended his first Flyer speedwork tonite and seemed to enjoy himself very much. :-p
Finally, i leave you with this cryptic note: keep your fingers crossed for me. I can’t quite say why on the blog just yet (though some of you who know me “off the blog” may already know.) if all goes well, i hope to have something good to tell soon…
