Ahhhh, Monday, how I loathe thee.
This Monday was especially painful because of how tired I was from this crazy weekend. I swear, I feel like I hardly took a break at all the last 2 days. So, here is a little recap…
Friday night I just went out to dinner with the hubby because I knew the rest of the weekend was going to be jam-packed.
Saturday morning started off with a trip to the gym. Since I was going to be running an 8k on Sunday, I took it somewhat easy: 20 minutes elliptical, 10 minutes stair-stepper followed by back/abs strength session. After the gym, I headed over to Michael’s for this little DIY project that was inspired by my friend, Leslie.
After Michael’s I picked up my race packet and got my teeth whitened, sexy right?
My husband and I got so tired that this had to happen:
Note the straw. Apparently, according to the teeth whitening people (what else would you have me call them?), we had to avoid pretty much all alcoholic drinks for 3 days but that using a straw makes it okay (thank GOODNESS!!!).
Race day gear ready to go…
Sunday started off like-so:
Soooo many people, holy moly. I thought it was really cool that the winner of The Biggest Loser 2013 was there.
The actual race could have been better. I had an unpleasant bout of diarrhea right before the race (too much?) so I was really dehydrated and felt like crap for most of the time.
After the race was over, I had a nice little brunch with my friend, Indira (she ran too!) then met up with my husband for some bike riding on the lakefront. Aaaand then, THIS happened!
What can I say, I run for the champagne!
Random question: If you saw a meetup group in your city named Bitches, Booze and Books, would you consider joining?
