I was totally MIA from blogging this weekend - guess that means I must have had fun. HA!
Thursday night I was invited to a really cool party with The Aggressor. It was the first time I felt the "Marathon Sacrifice." You know what I mean? I really wanted to go to this party - bay front with awesome people. But I knew I had to not drink and go to bed early so I could wake up before normal humans to get my 16 miler in. And that's just what I did. I told the Aggressor that sacrifice is part of the deal with me, and he better get used to it. He said that my dedication is one of the reasons he likes me. tee hee.
I woke up at 6am on 4th of July - and hit the pavement. I'll tell ya one thing, the first couple miles were a struggle, but about mile 4, I was in the zone. I was running it by myself, which wasn't too bad. Luckily is was really overcast - perfect running weather. Also, since it was the 4th, all the crazy tourists were setting up their camps ~ made for some interesting people watching (my 3rd favorite past time). I had my shot blocks at mile 6 and mile 12. I felt fine the entire time. I completed the run in 2hr 36 minutes, which breaks down to 9:45 min miles. I felt like I was going a lot slower, especially at the beginning, so I'm ok with that time.
I went to a party where the Captain was. It was ok. I guess I can say that I feel like it's really, really over now. Like I've mentioned before - I need an ANVIL to hit me on freakin' head MORE than once for something to get thru my thick skull.
I then headed over to a party to meet up with The Aggressor. It was a lot of fun. I met some his friends and they were all really cool. In typical Aggressor style, it looks like we are now an item, like exclusive, I guess. Seriously, my life is crazy weird sometimes.
The rest of the weekend was mellow. I ran 6 miles on Sunday - it was a really easy, nice recovery run. Rounded out the week at 30 miles! Sweet.
I have an annoying work week ahead of me: Huge presentation from hell and a big event of Friday. This will definitely interfere with my blogging and reading of blogs, so pardon the interruption.
