It's race week!
I am headed to beautiful Huntington Beach for the Surf City Half Marathon this weekend.
That race is always on Super Bowl Day.
How nice for my husband...right? I told him he could skip the race and just stay home but he is a great guy and he is coming. He will head to his buddy's house when we get back for the big game...me I think I will skip the party like last year..and take a nap! :) I could not care less about that game anyway.... I love most sport...Football: I don't get. At all.
Super Bowl weekend is also my son's (Jonathan) birthday. He was born on Groundhog Day. He will be 7 years old on Saturday. I cannot believe it.
So....I will be a tiny bit busy this weekend.
Saturday morning I will be going to the Expo alone to pick up my race packet and take a quick tour of the Expo.. will stop at the NUUN boot for sure to see Kim!
Then I need to come back home for the birthday party. We are taking 9 1st grader mini golfing! One of the courses is a "glow in the dark indoor course"! Should be fun. Then back home to hopefully REST before the race.
I ran Surf City last year and I was not happy with how I did. I remember I came home and signed up the RnR Pasadena Half Marathon that was 2 weeks later because I needed to "erase" this race out of my head! I am doing both races again this year and hopefully Surf City will have a better ending this time!
Last week I was not feeling the greatest. I have had sinus problems for weeks now because of allergies. Really bad congestion. It makes me feel unbalanced at times and it is very annoying. I never know if it is just that or if I am getting sick. Sunday I decided to do just 8 miles for my long run. I did not want to get sicker. This means I am not as prepared as I would like to be for this race and I am putting my focus on Pasadena for a decent time.
I am now obsessing over NOT getting sick. Every other Facebook status reads like this these days "One kid down with the FLU" "The FLU has infested our house" "The FLU this, the FLU that"... I am dead afraid of getting it. I am a real pain in the butt with my kids about washing their hands..I mean I have to refrain from going to school to make sure they do it before eating their lunches...I am not kidding. I am taking double doses of VIT C and I bought some AIRBORNE that I am drinking religiously twice per day. Now if only I could get some decent sleep.... for me..not an easy task.
Surf City will be race 2 out of the 3 towards my second beach cities challenge. I will complete it in May at the OC Half Marathon and get another huge medal!
I am looking for new tunes for my playlist..tell me your favorite one these days...not a fan of hip hop...I know I know I am old....
Are you racing on Super Bowl day?
Are you having a party? Going to one?
Do you play Words with Friends?
It is my new addiction.....I like it but it also makes me furious.
It accepts words that do not exist! I have a friend who keeps beating me...no I mean destroying me with fake words....
Yesterday I found out that there are apps for cheating at that game! WTH?
If you have good apps for word games let me know !
