So. Still sick over here. I know I sound like a broken record, so I’ll leave it at that.
Ready for some surprising news? Today I received a medal for the race I ran on Saturday. Apparently at least one of the 3 girls who finished in front of me wasn’t in my age group. I’m still not 100% sure if I was first, second, or third. I’m going to pretend I was first, because that’s hilarious to me. I was probably third, ya know? Thank goodness I’m great at pretending.
To celebrate, I ate guacamole, gelato, and sorbet for dinner. Not all at once. I also ate almost an entire bag of blue tortilla chips. Why on earth did I want chips when I could barely swallow my own spit? I’ll never understand myself. Crap. Still talking about being ill. Moving on.
Prior to that, I took Maddux to Lowe’s because that’s our home away from home. I grabbed an iced coffee on the way, which was the first thing I’d “eaten” all day. Seriously. Today at work I couldn’t eat the lunch I packed. Oh, wait. I forgot I wasn’t talking about being sick anymore. Dang.
Okay, let me just get this all out: sick, sick, sick, siiiiiiiiiiiick. That felt good.
Now for the truly bad news. Well, not really bad. In reality, it’s just flat out confusing and a little annoying more than anything else. Remember my race plans? October’s race was a women’s mud run that I was running as an ambassador. I was going with a few friends and we’d already booked the hotel room. I also had big plans to drink wine, wear heels, and stay up too late after the race. Just being honest.
The race organizers canceled the race. Out of nowhere. They didn’t contact the ambassadors personally or give a reason as to why it was canceled. I’ll go ahead and say I hope it’s nothing serious, because then I’ll feel like a jerk. Anyway, I basically had to sell a kidney to cancel our hotel reservations because I booked them through a bidding website. Lesson learned: the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. Fine, I learned that in high school English class. Whatever. It totally applies here.
So, now I need a back up race! What should I do in October, ya’ll? If you live in the Southeast, please let me know of all the happenin’ races. <-I am such a tool. But really. I need ideas.
Because I’m basically using you guys for race info, how ’bout I give away my race prize? I already have a Road ID bracelet that I love for long solo runs (yes, I still remember that those exist), so I might as well share the $15 gift code I received today, right? I’ll randomly pick a winner next week. Good luck! 🙂
