Faster than a speeding bullet...

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's BLONDIE!!! Blondie rocked out his 10K this past weekend, and did it in 57:02, which is amazing considering the first 2.5 miles were uphill. The race took us over the GG Bridge, which is actually not flat. No sirree. It's uphill and downhill x 2 (we ran over and back). Anyway, this is an amazing time, and I'm so happy for Blondie!

I did mine in 1:22:45, which is okay. I'm content with it. I had pulled a muscle in my right inner thigh last Thurs while working out with the advanced group, and I was still having a serious problem with it yesterday, so I feel quite happy with how I did. Not only did I come out knowing I was not feeling right, I also knocked off 6.2 miles. Now of course, if I could do it as fast as Blondie.... ;)

The rest of the weekend was incredibly lame. I've also been fighting allergies and have been taking Claritin - it's supposed to be non-drowsy, but I swear they spike it with Morphine. I pop a pill and 30 minutes later I'm drooling I'm so out of it. So the time not spent running (or grocery shopping) was spent sleeping. I'm sure Blondie loved that!

Plans for the week include:
1) Lunch with Blondie today! He's downtown doing a resume writing class and is meeting me afterwards for grubbity grub.
2) NCAA final game tonight (go Memphis I guess - I don't really care at this point about who wins, but just want to watch it).
3) Drinks with Sweetie J, Party C, and Blondie tomorrow night. It's been a long time since I've seen Sweetie J, and am excited to catch up with her.
4) Bootcamp new session started today. Between my 10K yesterday and my stupid inner thigh problem (how tacky is that), it sucked this morning. But that's okay - I still loved it even though it sucked.
