Christmas Eve Virtual 10K

Today, I participated in my first virtual race. It was a 10k and it felt good.

I tried to get the BF to go out with me, but he pussed out (it is 34 degrees outside!) and went on the treadmill for a few miles instead. I guess he did almost 4 miles on the treadmill.

I started at exactly 1pm. Not like a regular morning race, but this is the warmest part of the day.


As the map above shows, I started at Julia Davis Park. The river and the ponds were icy. The geese were walking on the ice. 

 My sweat-free face before I started slogging. I did the pics of myself in the warmth of my car.
 I saw some hawk hanging out and didn't really care that I passed under him twice. Thank you Mr. Bird for not pooping on my head.
 I don't know who Cassie is, but her friends provided some motivation at my last mile!


 I was doing great! I am so glad they wrote this down for me :-)
Post slog thumbs up.
At the 3rd mile, I was getting some side stitches. I think it has to do with me being dehydrated. Did I drink water before I slogged? No. I had a turkey dog and a cup and a half of some sludge the BF considered coffee. I walked the last .21 to my car as a cool down. Would I do that in a normal race, no, but I was on my feet moving.

There were a lot of people running on the greenbelt. There was this guy that passed me on my 4th mile. Just like any other race, I got passed. But he was wearing a puffy down jacket. So weird.

Now, on the my xmas eve festivities of making an egg nog cheesecake, and preparing my boeuf bourguignon for a xmas day dinner tomorrow.

Did you know that I think my BF just got me VODKA for an xmas present?!?! I am a little upset about that. Getting alcohol for gifts makes me feel like an alcoholic, no matter how much I drink. He gave me 6 bottles of wine for my birthday this year. I told him not to do that again, but I don't think he listens. Grrr.

Does your significant other give good gifts? I got better gifts years ago from him. Now, it's last minute things without a lot of thought.

What is on your wish list this year? I could use a new purse. My Burberry bag I have been using is starting to show some wear. I have had it for 7 years or so.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
