a long weekend

unlike pretty much everyone else i know, i had martin luther king, jr. day off today.  it’s my first official company holiday.  yay.

thanh and i hung out today to catch up since we haven’t seen each other in such a long time.  we got caught up with what’s been going on in each other’s lives and it was nice to be able to just chill.

i took paddy in to the vet today for a check up.  it seems that paddy is doing much better and has grown quite a bit since i last saw her.  she apparently gained 10 ounces in a week!  my sister’s dog is quickly growing up to her full potential of…4 pounds?  =P

also of note this weekend, i went running.  now, now, before you start laughing uncontrollably, let me repeat myself so that you do not feel like you’ve misread my previous statement.  i went running over the weekend.  yup, that’s right.  running.  me.  this weekend.

i went running for the longest distance i’ve ever run in my life.  that would seem like a rather impressive statement, but i’ve never actually run any farther than a mile (stupid middle school P.E.!!) so imagine my surprise when i found myself running this weekend.

i ran for a total of 1.7 miles, the distance from my apartment to a nearby starbucks.  christi got some coffee, i was coughing up a lung.  we walked the distance back to the apartment in the cool night air.  it wasn’t as bad as i thought it would be, but it certainly wasn’t as enjoyable as i thought it’d be either.  well, let me not kid myself, i never thought it would be enjoyable.

what a weekend.

  1. I KNEW you were a closet athlete.

    Don’t be so hard on yourself. Getting up and going 1.7 miles from scratch is GREAT. Most people in this state can’t run for a full minute without stopping, unless they trained for it. Just because you don’t do formal athletic training doesn’t mean you’re not getting your exercise thru biking, hiking, volleyball.

  2. i really don’t like to move. i miss my krispy kreme donuts. i really need to find a way to incorporate more of them into my diet.
