Run of champions

Here you go, friends. This was the toughest run of my life:

(Does anyone know how to keep the split-seconds from showing up in this chart?? It’s driving me nuts.)

Anyway, what was going to be a low-key Friday night at home turned into a “let’s go out and DANCE!” night with two girlfriends. We enjoyed some adult beverages and danced our faces off ‘til closing time, which I haven’t done in a really, really long time! It was so fun.

Against all odds, this 12-miler happened Saturday morning.

The first two miles were slowww because I attempted to run the mile over to Carly’s place, but I got a sharp pain in my side (liver? heh) and had to walk much of the way. Carly and I set out very slowly (she was one of my partners in crime the previous night), but fell into a better pace once we got through the initial pain.

She ran one loop of Lake Union with me, and then I dropped her off back at her place and continued on to finish my 12. I accidentally left my Garmin on as we said our goodbyes, so that’s why mile 8 looks quite a bit slower.

The last four miles were much less fun since I ran by myself, but I was determined to get them done. It was tough, and I considered using the “run 10 minutes/walk 1 minute” method, but I’m a glutton for punishment and just ran ’em.

I don’t recommend staying out ’til 2 a.m. and then running for two solid hours the next morning, but somehow it worked out! I won’t be doing that again for a veryyy longgg time though, if ever.

We had friends over Saturday night to make personal pizzas! We used surprisingly yummy Pillsbury pizza dough, and just set out a bunch of pizza toppings and let everyone go to town. My pizza was delicious and I ate the whole thing as we watched Country Strong, which I highly recommend!

Today is a windy, rainy, blah day in Seattle, so my morning bike ride with a friend was canceled. I think I’m going to clean my room and just chill today.

Have a good Sunday, everyone!
