So on Sat, 9/27, me and my sister did DA DITKA DASH!
-3.1 miles: Ditka dash 5k!
Full race recap later this week!
As I mentioned last week, this week was pretty intense. This week will also be rough but not as bad? I just have a short clinical on Wednesday and an all day SIM lab on Friday.
I also just found out recently that a corepower yoga is opening by me! It opens on 10/12 and they had a pre opening special- 2 months for $69! So I bought it- I’ve never taken a yoga class regularly so I’m excited to see how this goes. I really want to build up to take the classes where they use weight!
omg i finally did something!
2 miles. I know, how lame is that!? but it happened!
I’m in a middle of a rough week. I had to work super early on thurs and run to class, then Friday I had clinical all day and the same for Saturday.
And it’s not slowing down anytime soon. I worked a funky shift in Sunday- 4am-1pm. I worked all day today (Monday) have class all day tomorrow (Tuesday) and all day clinical on Wednesday, an exam on Thursday, and work all day Friday.
Gah is it Saturday yet?!
And yet another weak week
-my bday! so yeah nothing happened
I was FINALLY able to get an ID so yay! but this week was also my first exam and I didn’t do as well as I wanted, but I think by now, I have a flow and a better idea what I need to do. Also, I got noticed last minute about clinical hours so I did that, so Tuesday was a long day of just school.
I think this is the week I start working out again. The weather has also been funky, but good cool weather for running outside!
This recap is waaaay overdue! Sorry!
But all of this talk of me doing another race with my BFF Lauren made me think of the last race we did together which was the Macklind Mile! I did this race back on 6/28/14
I was visiting Lauren in STL this weekend where she invited me to do this race also and I said why not?! A mile and a good price of $20? Sign me up!
I did the race also with Lauren’s boyfriend and a co worker of hers. We woke up early and walked over to the race! Lauren was nice enough to do my packet pick up also, so I can’t comment on how that went.
Me and Lauren before the race!
This race was ok, not bad since it’s a mile and I didn’t really run at all this summer.
Overall this was a great race. I had a problem when I register since I signed up for the wrong wave and they were able to change it without a problem for me! And for $20 and to run in a different city, how can you turn it down?
What really cracks me up is they gave away these stickers, I have it on my bulletin board 🙂
You know, with the way I’ve been talking about this race you would think it’s happening next month when in reality I have basically a year to worry about it!
But after day 1, one hotel is already sold out and by the time I was able to look and call the others, three more hotels were booked! I couldn’t believe so I jumped on it last night and booked one.
Me and Lauren really wanted the cheapest one which was a Holiday Inn, but it wasn’t worth it. We would have a room at the special rate for one night, and the rest of the night we had to stay in a different room at a non special rate. I was like forget it. So I just went down the list- what was the next cheapest-ish available and the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre and that was easy and we get 2 beds! Sounds great to me! And on trip advisor people seem to be good with them, and it’s a 15 minute walk to the Convention Center where many events are happening, and a 30 minute walk from Stanley Park where the festival/concert is happening! And not too far away from The Canada Line (their public transportation) which also goes to the airport.
But what is not making me happy about it is it does seem their system has something like DC- it depends on the zone you go which depends on your fare- gosh make it easy like Chicago and Boston- one rate for everywhere!
Oh well, I have time to figure that out.
So I just learned that the Nike Race in DC that I did as my first half marathon is not going back to DC! This shocks me since last year was only their 2nd year! Obviously it was successful, hence why they had another one. But it looks like it’s moving, and the Tiffany lover in me REALLY hoping it comes somewhere really close (like CHICAGO!) but at this point anywhere is closer than their other location, which is San Francisco.
So does this mean my DC stuff is now vintage? My Tiffany’s necklace is like worth a lot now?! Lol Jkjk
And dang I should of bought that yellow neon tank top and those lunar racer shoes! Gah!
I can’t wait to hear what is going on. Right now they are concentrating on the SF race since that’s happening next month. I’m sure once that race happens, more info will come out!
