a good start.

I think 2010 will be good, and that makes me happy, especially since the past three years or so have been somewhat forgettable. This year has started out spectacularly, despite a little cold I acquired, I'm guessing due to the fact that I forgot to take MY yoga mat to the gym the other night and had to use a gym yoga mat...bad idea. I have no resolutions to announce, because I'm not that kind of girl. I've blogged about that before, but I'm the type to say why wait for a new year to resolve to be better?! So I've got nothing for you there.

Onto the great new year so far, exciting news. I RAN!! In fact I ran two 5Ks in two days. I am going to say I got a PR in the first 5K, because it was totally a PR for a beer race. Yes, I had a beer BEFORE the race, then there were three beer stops through the whole 5k. I am a lightweight, those who know me at all know this. In fact, I should not be allowed to use technology after even one beer, those who have witnessed this...HOLLAAAH.

Lost my train of thought....beer 5K on New Years Eve....yes. So I did the 5K with some friends and even Edder joined in. Although he took the beer part far more seriously than I did...hey, someone had to drive home. I'm not even sharing my time, because it doesn't matter. It was fun and freezing and something different and shared with good friends. Plus, the perfect way to start the evenings festivities. Which included fellow runners bombarding my house for pizza and beer and games, it was a whole bunch of running nerd fun.

Tomorrow I'll recap a good first few days in the new year, including that second 5K in two days, some quality time with Alec Baldwin, a few announcements (just like school), some SWAG and maybe even a picture or two! EEEIIIIAA, happy new year!! Annnnd I'm spent. Time to go back to sleep, having a cold sucks. Or give in to a guilty pleasure and watch Pet Psychic...yeah, I just admitted that interweb, but it's such a fabulous train wreck!

how did we miss each other? If you were at the frosty 5k on friday morning, i stood at the finish line from the time the clock said 20 minutes to 45 minutes. AND THEN I was inside eating soup.
CRAZY!!

congrats on the pr, beer induced or not! :)

i don't do resolutions either, but i do like to line up a few goals for myself for the year. i'd wander aimlessly without them ;)

haha, bet there's a REALLY funny story there. :) SO happy that you're running and feeling great! Can't wait to see what you accomplish in 2010! I'm with ya on the resolution thing, I make changes as I need to throughout the year, I do have goals though. They're different right? Feel better soon!

I must be going to the wrong races. You say there were 3 beer stops in one 5k? Wow.

Happy New Year!
