I survived!

Sunday, October 28, 2012

But barely.

The 1/2 was horrible for me. I had a lousy night sleep, Day One of TOM and pouring rain. I hate to say that I only did 9 miles of the 1/2. I developed two blisters and decided it would be dumb to keep going. It was super disappointing. I was heading towards a PR and my feet said no.

The Dawn of the Dead Dash was fun. The fact that you could get brauts and alcohol *before* the race says something. They encourage people to not take it seriously and just have fun. The volunteer shift was a good time. I needed the silliness after earlier that day.

Sunday I thought the Woodland Park Zoo Dash *started* at 8am. But no. Packet pickup was at 8. So getting there at about 6:30 wasn't the best idea. I pulled my hood over my eyes and managed to catch a nap before the race.

The costumed kids were super cute and the money goes to the zoo. Can't beat that!

Oh, wait. I can.

The largest shirt they had was XL. And with some boxing it fit w/o breaking any obscenity laws!

I got home this afternoon and haven't done anything since except some reading, some TV, some kitty petting and a nap.

I'll go back to work tomorrow and rest up.

    Bummer on the half but I'm so glad that you can take your disappointments so well and keep moving on! I love the Woodland Park Zoo. I would have loved to particpate in that.

No wonder your kitties were holding you down after a weekend like that!
