Welp, I did it. I managed to break the 10 mile barrier yesterday on my weekly long run and altho it was not an easy task, I felt absolutely amazing upon completion. I haven’t had the time to devote to a serious long run in a couple of weeks so my 10 miler was a bit overdue but better late than never, eh? It took me a bit longer than I may have liked to run the 10 miles but I did it! To celebrate, David took me out for a nice dinner together, just the two of us. ‘Twas a very nice night, indeed.
Now that I have my first 10 mile run under my belt, I can focus on my first 10K race this Sunday. I’ll be participating in the West Hollywood Pride Run Sunday morning. Since I ran a long run yesterday, I’m taking today and tomorrow off to rest up for the 6+ mile race Sunday morning. It’s Pride Weekend here in LA and rainbow colors are going up all over the place. Last night, we went to dinner at Tortilla Republic on Robertson and we saw city workers painting a crosswalk in WeHo with rainbow colors. Today, after the paint dried, the colorful crosswalk looked glorious in the light of day:
It’s going to be a super gay weekend in West Hollywood this weekend … I can’t wait :) Honestly, I don’t usually partake in the festivities but since I’m running the WeHo Pride Run on Sunday, I guess I’ll get into the spirit.
Happy Friday, Happy Weekend, Happy Pride, y’all!!0
