Yesterday, I participated in a virtual memorial run since I’ll be at work during my community memorial run tomorrow. I saw two other runners out wearing Boston colors & got a few honks.
It was an eventful 9 miles. I got chased by a dog (a Boston terrier, ironically) which isn’t unusual, but this dog growled at me & I was momentarily worried he was going to attack me. I immediately stopped & started talking to him in the voice I use with my dogs until his owner came over & got him.
Then, I tripped over an uneven sidewalk & almost face planted, but I lunged & was somehow able to stay upright. Hopefully, there weren’t any witnesses. Also, my armpits kept making farting sounds. lol. No joke. I think it was because I was wearing long sleeves since the wind was chilly, but the sun was warm & I was sweating a lot!
Overall, it was a pretty great run & I really felt like I could have ran the half marathon yesterday, that’s how strong my legs felt. Oddly enough, the part of me that was the most sore afterwards was my back. Today, it’s my quads. I’m loving this foam roller!
Then, I did something I haven’t done for over three months, my hair & make up. lol. AND, I wore something other than my work uniform & running clothes!
We went to a friend’s for a bonfire & they had a keg. I hadn’t drank in three months, besides an occasional glass of wine. I ended up drinking too much as usual & felt like crap today. I really need to stop drinking beer & hard liquor because alcohol is the one thing I still haven’t learned moderation with & apparently never will. I definitely hadn’t missed drinking & I really have no desire to anymore. Soooo, no more alcohol for me, except wine every now & then. My liver will thank me.
Hope you all had a great weekend!
Did you do anything exciting over the weekend?
