I love hearing motivation from strangers while running. I got fist pump and today’s blog title shouted to me nearing the end of my 3.5 miler. It definitely helped the last 0.1 :)
June has been all sorts of busy:
Saturday 6/5: Went to go see Conan O’Brien here in Boston. Oh man I can’t wait until his show is on TBS. The whole show was hilarious. Reggie Watts was the opener, and Dropkick Murphys came out and played a few songs with Conan. After that I went out with some friends until just a biiiiit too late.
Sunday 6/6: Birthday time! I’m 24 now. Eep. I missed my long run. Not too concerned!
Monday 6/7: I won a party at a local pub and spent most of my night having regrettable bar hot dogs and super large beers. And I wonder why my run on Tuesday sucked…
Tuesday 6/8: Hit snooze for 45 minutes because hell no I wasn’t getting up at 5am that day. Running? No thanks. That’s a lie; I packed my running things and did a sluggish 3 miles in the city. It just felt terrible. And can we talk about how awesome the Glee finale was last night? After the horrible Funk one that aired the other week, I’m so glad to see some decent writing back in play. Hopefully the second season will have a stronger plotline than the back 9 did this year.
Today 6/9: I finally signed up for my local running club! They do track/intervals/hills on Tuesday nights, and a 5K every Wednesday. This works well for two reasons: 1) I get to meet more local people/runners, which is never a bad thing, and 2) group evening runs = NOT GETTING UP AT 5AM ON THOSE DAYS. I’m a little excited about that, can you tell?
Tomorrow 6/10: My parents are taking me to a belated birthday dinner at one of my favorite Italian places. They have a dish called ‘zuppa di pesce‘ which is clams, mussels, shrimp, scallops, calamari and lobster over linguine. Hello there, delicious. It’s meant for two people, but it’s most definitely two “Italian” portions. Aka it’s a huge dish. My dad and I will definitely devour the whole thing anyway.
This Weekend 6/11-13: I’m heading up to Portsmouth with one of my friends to meet up with Big B and run the Market Square Day 10K! I’m really looking forward to this weekend.
