I would have written this post yesterday but alas my brain didn't have the capacity to formulate complete sentences. Yeah, I went a bit nuts on New Years Eve. I certainly didn't think that was going to be the case given that I had been up since 5:00 am but once the dancing started, G was hard pressed to get me to go anywhere. I love a good dance party. I don't care if I'm the only one up and dancing either. I create my own fun, ha ha. A few drinks always tends to help.

I finally dragged myself out of the house at around 12:30. I was thankful that the sun was shining. It was a glorious day out. My first few steps were not great. My stomach was not happy. As I got moving, I started to feel better. I tried to push the pace after my 2km warm up but it wasn't going to happen. I decided to just do what I could. After about 5km, I felt a lot better so I started to push the pace again. This time I managed to hit my goal pace. So I stuck it out for as long as I could. Before I knew it, I was done. And, miracle of miracles, my hangover was gone. Running is definitely the cure for what ails you!
|Not a bad effort all things considered!|
After my run, I spent the afternoon lounging on the couch watching Top Gear and catching up on some of my favourite blogs. Melissa at Lift. Teach. Love. Run is participating in a challenge hosted by Jill Conyers and Jen at Marathon Mom. The challenge is to run 13 races in 2013. They can be virtual or real races. I was pumped about that idea and luckily enough the ladies extended the registration deadline to Jan 6th so I jumped on that bandwagon this morning. Can't wait to get started on that! Looks like 2013 is going to be a busy one!
