Last Day!

Today is officially my last day at work, and while I’m sad to be leaving the friends I made here over the past three years, I can’t wait to move on and start my new life in VA!  Moving day is in one week and I still have a ton to do, like make it through my first half marathon.

Last night was supposed to be my last run of my training plan, but by the time I got home from work I really didn’t feel like doing it.  I also got to thinking, throughout my entire training plan I was doing a short run on Thursday followed by my long run on Saturday.  One day of rest in between, and it worked pretty well.  Why should I switch up that routine now, so I think I’m just going to go out for a short 2-3 miles this afternoon instead.  Or maybe not, we’ll see :).  Instead of running I gave myself a pretty holiday manicure.

In my opinion, anything with sparkles is holiday themed, although my sister and boyfriend disagree with me on this matter.  And yes, I do have the smallest hands/fingers/nails ever, I know.  And a burn from my straightener on one finger, cute.

To celebrate my last day at work today, my girls are taking me out for one last lunch, and then we are having ice cream cake.  I’m not supposed to know about the cake, but my boss accidentally copied me on the email, although I don’t think he knows he did.  Meh whatever, haha, ice cream cake is my absolute favorite thing ever so I’m pretty excited for this afternoon.  I also have this currently burning a hole in my pocket.

That would be a $50 gift card to Lululemon that I won last month, and I’m hoping (seriously fingers crossed here) that I’ll get to leave work early and have a chance to hit up the one in Princeton and get home before rush hour traffic.  Tonight I plan to rest on the couch with my feet up, hydrating with some water, and trying to avoid the wine.  There’s just something wrong about not having a cocktail on a Friday night, especially when it’s your last day of work, but I think I can make it until Sunday to celebrate.

Tomorrow morning I have plans to meet Steph and Chrissey at the expo to pick up our race packets and then grab some food.  Pretty excited for the expo, not going to lie.  The only other one I’ve been to was for Broad Street two years ago, and I didn’t stay long or really check it out.   Again, if you want to receive text updates Sunday, here is the link!  The weather is still looking good for Sunday, at 6 am the forecasted temperature is 36 degrees.  With a race start time of 7 am, I’m thinking capris and a light long-sleeve shirt?  If I get too hot I can just push the sleeves up, I don’t want to have to worry about having my number pinned to a heavy long sleeve layer and then moving it around if I decide to lose a layer.  Blah, I don’t know! Haha.

Oh, and good news, despite still being wide awake at 11 pm, I managed to eventually fall asleep and sleep through the entire night!  So that’s at least one good night’s sleep before the race.  We’ll see how tonight and tomorrow go.  Happy Friday everyone!


A little too much fun

Well, Saturday night was delightful and if anything it definitely served as a reminder as to why I no longer drink like I used to in college.  My old and washed-up self cannot handle it.  I spent the entire day yesterday either on the couch or in my bathroom throwing up.  Gross.

I blame the table of alcohol, and my lack of self-control apparently.  Oh well, you live ya learn.  I think the best part of the night was playing The Beatles Rock Band until 2 am, I am a champion, let me just say that right now.  Paige was very tired and not amused by our loud singing.

Also, around 11 or 12 I think we stumbled upon a Britney Spears tribute on the FUSE network, playing all of her old most popular videos.  It is safe to say that a Brit Brit dance party immediately ensued and didn’t stop until the boys changed the channel on us.  Here’s a picture of Ashley, Michelle, and I still somewhat early in the night before we got completely out of hand.

Seeing as I was completely out of commission yesterday, I watched a lot of Lifetime.  There were some quality movies on, and while Misha Barton’s life may be in the gutter she can still play a crazy ex-gf pretty damn well.  I also sat through a horrible Lindsay Lohan movie, I Know Who Killed Me.  Awful, I think the only reason I didn’t change the channel was because I couldn’t reach the remote.  I wonder if Lifetime was running a theme yesterday of “actresses who used to have careers” because there was a movie with Elizabeth Berkley on also.  Hmm…

Anyway, I was doing some online browsing earlier and realized that the ING Philadelphia Half Marathon is September 19 and registration is open.  I’m very tempted to sign up, but if I allow myself 13 weeks to train, that puts me at the end of June/first week of July and I’m wondering if I’ll be fully able to run by then.  I don’t want to sign up for another race and lose the entry fee like I did for Broad Street, but I also don’t want registration to close.  Thoughts?  I’m probably going to ask my physical therapist tonight was his thoughts are also.

Alright I hope everyone had a great weekend, I’ll be catching up my Google reader throughout the day to see what everyone was up to!  Happy Monday!
