Yesterday after the marathon there was a dance party on Lafayette right by my apartment. I could hear them doing the Electric Slide and for a second thought about running out and joining them but laziness won out in the end. Fortunately my friend Kristin was there!
This is maybe my favorite thing in a long time.
Just try to watch this and not love NYC.
Raphael Saadiq- 100 Yard Dash
Eric got me hooked on this one! It’s just too perfect for running, right?
I am going to run every day this week. I think I’ll stay around 4-6 then do 10 on Saturday. Megan and Nicole don’t walk at all when they run. Meanwhile, I’ve been stopping to walk up every hill that gets in my way- even the little ones. How embarrassing.
A Message to Pretty- Love
My inspiration! This is one of the best Bugs Bunnies by far!
Oh man. So, I pretty much haven’t been running at ALL this month. Like, not once. Between work and travel and parties and Christmas and more work it’s just been too hectic to even think about running! I’ve just been knitting up a storm and counting on catching up with running after the holidays.
What a big mistake! I went on a little three miler yesterday and it felt like I’d never run before in my life! Three lousy miles! I wouldn’t even DO three miles last spring/summer/fall because I thought a distance that short didn’t even COUNT! Now I’m huffing and puffing and feeling like a first timer! I had planned on running the Kaiser half marathon in February, but I don’t even know if I can do it! Seriously- how could I lose all that fitness in just a month! I’d slowed way down in November too, but still did a 6 miler on Thanksgiving and it wasn’t a big deal. Mortifying.
So I guess I’ll just keep pushing myself every day to run and hope that I bounce back fairly quickly. I’ll keep updating my Tumblr to keep me honest and track my runs. Wish me luck…
