Whew! Yesterday was a very long, very active day … mostly. I woke up before dawn to make my way down to Huntington Beach, CA to run the 2013 Surf City Half Marathon. After a 2 hour and 3 minute run (not my fastest half marathon but my second fastest), I made my way back to LA to grab brunch at Mauro’s Cafe at Fred Segal with my friend Lisa who is visiting from NYC. From there I made my way downtown to attend Ollie & Caleb’s Super Bowl Party … where I promptly melted into the couch to finally relax a bit. I did have fun, from morning to well after dark.
The race was really fun, really beautiful. It was tough, mostly because I hadn’t run a single step since the Walt Disney World Marathon last month. I know, bad training but … my laziness has finally started to exert itself on me where my running’s concerned. I managed to complete the run with my second fastest time so I was really pleased. I got to meet Pink reader George (see above) and I have to give a huge shout-out and LOTS OF LURVE to his wife Cynthia. I hope to get and get a photo with her next time :D
Brunch with Lisa was fun. We’ve been trying to get together for a while now and we finally made it happen. She and I are talking about going to Iceland together later in the year … Lisa doesn’t joke around so, I think it’s going to happen :D
After brunch, it was party time with Ollie and Caleb. Olls managed to turn the cute Mikey Mouse Ears Hat keychain I brought her from WDW into the cutest headband hat ever:
The party was really fun, full of really great people … which included a reunion of THE OOHLAS!!!
Ollie and Caleb are so great. Their home is so warm and inviting, I love hanging out there. Altho my day was long and bizzy, I had a blast!!
Today, I’m feeling it tho. My legs seem extra sore so … I needs to chill out. I’m hoping to meet up with Adriana for dinner later so hopefully we can make it happen.
It’s Monday, Happy New Week!!0
