unlike pretty much everyone else i know, i had martin luther king, jr. day off today.Â it’s my first official company holiday.Â yay.
thanh and i hung out today to catch up since we haven’t seen each other in such a long time.Â 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.Â it seems that paddy is doing much better and has grown quite a bit since i last saw her.Â she apparently gained 10 ounces in a week!Â my sister’s dog is quickly growing up to her full potential of…4 pounds?Â =P
also of note this weekend, i went running.Â now, now, before you start laughing uncontrollably, let me repeat myself so that you do not feel like you’ve misread my previous statement.Â i went running over the weekend.Â yup, that’s right.Â running.Â me.Â this weekend.
i went running for the longest distance i’ve ever run in my life.Â 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.Â christi got some coffee, i was coughing up a lung.Â we walked the distance back to the apartment in the cool night air.Â 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.Â well, let me not kid myself, i never thought it would be enjoyable.
what a weekend.

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.
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.
