Someone’s Excited

Things my boyfriend said to me last night:

Him: “Can we get late night pizza Sat?”
Me: “haha sure”

Him: “Can we pretend we just met at the bar and have a drunken one night stand?”
Me: “hahaha sure”

Him: “Epiiiiiic. I’m gonna defriend you tonight so I can send you and awkward friend request Sunday.”
Me: “Lame”

Haha, someone is a little excited to pretend like he’s in college on Saturday.  I think my sister is a little happy about it also.

I’m pretty excited myself, I just hope I can remember that I can’t party like a 21 year-old anymore without feeling extremely sick the next day.  Hopefully I can control myself.  Oh, and go Dukes!

Last night I hit the treadmill for a speed workout, 3 x 1 mile repeats at 8:20 pace.  8:20 pace is definitely a tad faster than is comfortable for me, so it felt good to push myself for those three miles.  Here’s how it looked.

  • 1 mile warm-up 10 min/mile
  • 1 mile 8:20 pace
  • .25 walk 4.4 mph
  • 1 mile @8:20 pace
  • .25 walk 4.4 mph
  • 1 mile @8:20 pace
  • .25 walk 4.4 mph
  • 4.75 miles total

I ran into my friend Chris as I was leaving the gym, and invited him over to watch the Phillies game later.  Chris is actually my oldest friend in the area. We met in the 4th grade, although we didn’t really become friends until I lost the  glasses and braces in 8th grade and was cool enough to talk to :).  He was my first serious boyfriend in high school, and we dated for about a year and a half.

This is us in June 2000, probably about two months after we started dating, I’m 14 and he’s 15.

Then this is us last summer celebrating Chris’s 25th birthday.  So even at 24 and 25, I think we look exactly the same as we did at 14 and 15, haha.  It was fun to have someone to watch the Phillies with, and I wore my Brad Lidge shirt which I’m pretty sure helped them win ;).  Also, Chris wants to run the Philadelphia Marathon next month, but forgot to sign up and now it’s sold out.  He’s been raising money for Alzheimer’s awareness for the race, so if anyone knows of someone looking to unload a bib, please let me know!

It’s Friday, hooray! I don’t plan on doing anything at all tonight except sitting on my butt resting for tomorrow mornings 10 mile run and day of drinking at Villanova.  I can’t believe yesterday marked the 1 month count down until the half marathon, it’s going to be here before I know it!  Anyone else up to anything good this weekend?! Happy Friday!
