So I’ve really been bad about keeping up with this blog, and I apologize. My routine has just been so bizarre with vacation and then traveling for work. This has unfortunately taken a bit of a back seat. BUT here are some fun updates. This past weekend a bunch of us went to King Richard’s Faire (a medieval fair) and it was pret-ty fun. Continuing on a 2 year tradition, us girls got our faces painted. S agreed to pay for it ONLY if I got a dragon painted on my face. I obliged.
I think we all looked pretty great.
S also then HAD to get a turkey leg, which he was convinced despite incessant googling, that it was ham. To be fair, it did taste and look A LOT like ham.
We also saw a big cat show, which was pretty incredible. My favorite was the snow leopard but I couldn’t get a good picture of him. So here’s the white tiger, named BANSHEE. Pretty great name in my opinion.
After the faire I went straight to the airport to catch a flight to New York. I was there Monday and Tuesday for a conference. It was fun and all, but I’m happy I don’t live there. It’s just a little too much for me.
Also this is the disgusting view I had from my hotel room.
Last, but certainly not least, I came home to some mail from the B.A.A last night.
And what feels even better? I ran 4 miles last night on the treadmill (at an 8:46 average pace) and felt awesome! Going to take it easy from here, and stick to four miles for at least one more run, and then move it up to 5, consult with my doctor once more, and come up with a game plan for increasing from there. Wish me luck!
