Little Bits: Bit of Saturday9:11 AM
Hello all! Sorry for being such a slacker-blogger as of late, life has been busy. Thankfully it has been a great blend of excitement and of the mundane, keeping things interesting.
Saturday was the Oak Apple Run, and I ran and finished my very first 10k! It was hard, but it different ways than I had anticipated. For instance, running on pavement is a lot different than running on the track at the YMCA. It took a mile or so for me to adjust, and also to adjust to all of the people. I only stopped a few times for headphone adjustment purposes (I have really strange shaped ears), but other than that I did run, if very slowly, the whole race. It took me an hour and eight minutes, which is a turtle pace, but I am just glad that I did it. I actually did not run a full six miles until the day of the race, I know, I know. But now that I know that I can run six miles, I can work on improving my time.
The best part of the 10K? These amazing guys! Kyle did not have time to train at all, but managed to jog/walk with my friend Sara. I tried my hardest to keep up with Brian, as it was his first 10k too, but he finished in under an hour (my goal for the next race). This was Aaron’s first race and he was one of the first 100 males to finish and got a medal! He was sick, still managed to run, and get a great time.
Later on Saturday night Kyle, my parents and I went to an even t for my work. It was a dinner cruise on the Detroit River, very swanky. Thankfully, the dress-code was “dressy-casual”, because it was quite chilly. We had fun sipping free drinks, eating yummy food, taking pics and hanging out with my co-workers. I took a picture of the Ambassador bridge with my camera phone (sorry for the instagram pics, but our camera battery is dead, charger nowhere to be seen).
