Friday night I went to bed thinking it was going to be an awesome weekend. A few days unpacking more of the house, hanging out with the husband and kiddo, going on a run with them, and getting used to the area. Cue 4 am, and I’m hugging the toilet, revisiting that night’s dinner. I don’t know what the hell happened, after getting sick just one more time, sleeping the ENTIRE day [I think I had 6 total hours of awake time], I was feeling so much better by Saturday night. Sunday morning I jumped out of bed, and it felt as though Saturday never happened. Granted, I was super weak, had a headache, and was slightly dizzy, but it wasn’t anything a few nibbles of a biscuit couldn’t help. I still was cautious about eating a lot, since I wasn’t sure if it was a storm before the calm.
Naturally, I didn’t run all weekend, which totally sucked… but it’s what had to happen.
Anyway, in the last post I said I’d tell you more about some races I’m planning on doing. Luckily, we live on a post that is so fitness driven, that they host 5k’s every month. !! Fort Lewis [also known as Joint Base Lewis McChord… that’s just too long for me to type, and I can’t stand acronyms] also hosts mountain bike racing, several triathlon distance events, and even hold body building competitions. I’ll add those to the calendar if I do them, I know my husband is a fan of shorter races, so I’d rather cheer him on at those 😉 However, I did add a Women’s Half Marathon in July, that’s held in Seattle. Champagne & chocolate, they had me sold. Heck, I would do it for the chocolate. It’s reasonably priced as well, and I’m hoping I can convince my local sister in law to do it with me. THAT’S RIGHT BROOKE, I’M TALKING ABOUT YOU. 😀
Ok kids, that’s about enough time the kiddo will let me on the computer, and I have organizing to do. I’ll be back tomorrow with a book report of sorts on My First 100 Marathons, by Jeff Horowitz. Also, there’s going to be a giveaway soon… so check back!
