but it was AWESOME!!!
We started off running late
But is was a blast yes also typical party fare bounce house, face painting, pinata and pizza (one piece) and cupcakes (only one and it was so flipping good)
|A mash up of birthday party fun!|
Oh and one other thing at G3's party this little baby was quite a hit! The adult stuff on the sides came out later when most of the "work" parents went home (except for a few who are cool like us) lol! and I only had one promise!
Then this morning came I made sure to go to bed early because to be honest I was scared. I had nine miles on the schedule today. My longest run ever!!! So I got up early to give myself time to fuel properly and let things happen *wink*
So this was breakfast a coffee protein drink, whole wheat English muffin with PB and a banana.
Then off I went 9 freaking miles....9!!! Holy crap!
It was one of the best runs I think I've ever had. I started off running the block around my house then about mile 2 I ate shit! I slipped on a piece of ice and hit the ground HARD. I landed on my left knee. OUCH!! i couldn't believe it. I live in Southern California I was not aware of this phenomena ice on the ground?? I know, I know, spoiled we are but I never even thought to look for it. Anyway after I went down I got my self up and limped a bit off the ice and walked a few minutes with tears in my eyes trying to shake it off. I was determined not to let it ruin this run, so off I went to finish 7 more miles. It was great at one point a great P!nk song came on Try, and I know it's about love but something about that line "Where there is desire, there's gonna be a flame, where there is a flame someones bound to get burned, but just because it burns doesn't mean your gonna die. You gotta get up and try, try, try..." just get's me. I love it to me it kind represents my relationship with running. I have the desire and the flame is there, but damnn it BURNS, but I WILL NOT DIE and I will TRY, TRY, TRY....so when it came on I just started crying.... I musta' looked a hot mess, tears, snot, and sweat, but I felt AMAZING like I could do anything and hell I was.....
