Conquering Broad Street, again

Look what I did this morning!

Officially registered for the Blue Cross Broad Street 10 mile run!  Anyone want to run with me?  I have no running partner this year :(.  It is the first Sunday of May, which gives me what, 11 weeks to train.  That is exactly what I had last year, the difference being this year I have been running consistently since February 2009.  Well if you don’t count the past two weeks I had to take off to rest my IT band.  Stupid knee.  I’m so excited, I estimated my finish time at 1 hour 30 minutes, so fingers crossed.  Back to the gym tonight for me (finally)!.  I’m still not allowed to run, but I figure I can at least hop on the elliptical for a good 45 minutes and get some major stretching of my tighter than hell IT band in.

Yesterday was a very relaxing President’s Day off with the bf.  When we finally left the apartment to go find some lunch, I think at this point it was 2 pm and I was verrrrry hungry, we couldn’t decide where to go and wandered around for years.  Ok maybe not years, but it sure felt like it.  I think I was on the verge of passing out, and getting crankier by the minute.  Waiting until 2 in the afternoon to eat for the first time all day is not a good idea for me.

Alex finallllly decided on this new place that recently opened called Rockwell’s Express. It was a really cool place, you create custom burgers, salads, wraps, chicken burgers, chicken sandwiches with whatever you want on them.  For the burgers and chicken burgers, all of the ingredients are mixed in with the meat, and then the patty is made.  It was pretty cool and delicious.  I ended up ordering a grilled chicken sandwich on a whole wheat bun, but after seeing Alex’s burger kind of wished I had gone with one of those.

Alex’s favorite part was the giant selection of fountain sodas and sauces and condiments.  Apparently that’s what he wants for his house someday.  Good luck with that babe.

After lunch we just sort of wandered around and ended up in Union Square, where we spent 3,000 hours looking at one pair of shoes in Shoe Mania.  The most surprising thing about that?  The shoes were not for me, nope it was all the bf.  He did not end up buying said shoes (hooray, I was not a fan) but by then I was too tired and annoyed with the Union Square crowds to even try to go into Trader Joe’s (sad) so we just went home.  Well we made one last stop at a Game Stop where guess what we bought.  A new Xbox game!  Haha shocking right?  It’s ok, I approve of this one, it’s a snowboarding game and relatively easy for video game idiots like me to play.

I got home around 8:30 last night, after a very crowded train ride, and surprise surprise it was snowing.  Sigh, how many days until Memorial Day?  102?  Getting back into the swing of things today has not been easy, in fact I am still struggling.  Notice how it’s 11 am and I am just getting around to posting?  Well at least LOST is on tonight, and tomorrow is Wednesday already!
