I’m running a 5K tomorrow morning. It’s actually at 11 am which is great since races typically start a lot earlier. I’ve been running since my half-marathon but not a ton. I did do a 5-miler yesterday with Joan and that was pretty enjoyable and felt easy enough so I am confident that the 5K will be a good one. I have a sub-30 goal in mind but I’m kind of wary of setting a speed goal for myself because I know that if I don’t achieve it, I’ll be mad at myself. So, I’m going to still try but try harder not to be bummed if I run slower.
I’m also going to be celebrating my birthday tomorrow night by having dinner with a bunch of friends at El Taco. I’ve never been but it’s on my running route and I always want to try it. Supposedly they have frozen mojitos. My birthday isn’t really until Tuesday, but no one, including myself, really wants to go out on a Tuesday night. There are a few good things happening on Tuesday though to mark my turning old. One, my iphone is coming! Yes, I broke down and bought one. Did you know that you can get a refurbished on for $99? And secondly, and probably of more interest to the rest of the world, Ben and Jerry’s is giving away free ice cream! We stop there a lot to get water on our runs and the last time I asked the guy about it. He said that you stand in line and get a free cone and can get in line as many times as you want.
What’s your favorite Ben & Jerry’s flavor? Mine is Cherry Garcia. I also like the old classic, Heath Bar Crunch.
