the day started off sucky.
well i think we are pretty much set for noah's party tomorrow. i decided at the last moment to go ahead and purchase a cake at COSTCO and i decorated the cake with a race track made from crushed oreos. i then added a green infield and piped "greenery" around the track. i even included some lifesaver "bumpers" around the infield. and i am proud to say that i made the happy birthday sign with some scrapbook supplies i had for the cake too!
all i need to add tomorrow are the cars and the mr. potato head holding the checkered flag. i will be sure to get lots of pictures tomorrow.
so here is the part that sucked. i got up at 6:15 am. at precisely 7:03 am i started running 4 miles and it pained me so b/c this was the SLOWEST 4 miles i have ever logged. being somewhat of a type A personality, i am ultra competitive - lots of times with myself.
the 4 mile run today is to categorize us in the "group" you are supposed to run with for the marathon training program. and just so you know, when i was in my prime, i was in the second fastest group - green B1 (with blue A being the fastest group). and with my time today i will probably be in the yellow C3 which is right next to the red group which is slowest.
while the run was physically taxing, i think it was more taxing on my pride than anything. sigh. but you know what i have to start somewhere and at least i am getting back into this.
can't wait for tomorrow, i hope noah has a wonderful BD! will share lots of pictures when we are done!
