Good morning and happy Thursday!
My day yesterday rocked and rocked! It was such a great day!
Work was good. Felt like I was productive but not overly stressed. I got to have a delicious sushi lunch and catch up with one of my coworkers I hardly ever get to see.
We went to Tsunami Sushi, where I got the sushi lunch combo.
After work, I made the trek out to Tampa for the Fit2Run Wednesday Fun Run 5k.
Saucony came out and had a bunch of shoes for us to demo.
I tried out the Triumph model and am pleased to report, I could actually run in these. I’m pretty partial to my Brooks, but the Saucony’s did not feel bad or different and I could see me getting used to them.
I was so so so proud of my time.
I know it’s gonna be a slow process, but I love seeing little bits of improvement. And…don’t tell the others, but I love that I am now passing others and posing some real competition to them while run/walking.
Actually!! After the run, I went up to one of the guys I was pretty neck-and-neck with for the first half of the run to ask how he did. He shrugged and said, “I finished”, then proceeded to say that, “there was a girl that kept passing me walking so that was kind of embarrassing”.
A group of runners from the Wednesday night crew always go out after the run, and invited me to tagalong.
We went to Brickhouse Tavern, where I had some of the yummiest chicken tenders ever.
And!!! Wait for it… A beer. I never drink beer! I swear this is the first beer in my life I have ever actually finished. It was good!
It was a Curious Traveler Grapefruit Ale. I think this is what it looks like…
Oh, and yesterday was my eighth fun run with the club, which means…
Question of the day
How AWESOME was your Wednesday?
