It feels amazing and horrible to be back home. I missed by dog and my boyfriend but other than that I wish I could have seen more.
Back to reality means back to paying bills and going to work. Back to apartment and house hunting with the bf so we can move in together. Working on getting all my transcripts transferred over to a new school here so I can start working toward the nursing program they have now that I know where we will be staying. And I need to starting getting all my annual Dr appts set up since it’s actually been like 2+ years since I did any of that.
Obviously I am actually looking forward to moving in with my BF and getting closer and closer to nursing school is a good thing and I have nothing against health checkups except the copays hahahahaha. It just sucks to come back from vacation and I am super tired, traveling transcontinentally is difficult. Thankfully I work today then have two days off.
Went for a 1 mile walk today with the dog, need to get back to my running.
I will keep posting my Europe trip slowly but surely until it is all done.
Have a good night, talk to you tomorrow!!
This last Saturday my boyfriend and I ran our first race together. We didn’t have high hopes going in since neither of us had trained enough and there were going to be some hills.
We are not fans of getting up early.
What can I say about this race except that it was small which was nice and off the main road so we didn’t worry too much about cars. Their fuel stations were just ok in my opinion but I am used to bigger races with bigger sponsors so in the future I would just need to plan better.
The race was on sort of back mountain roads so trail running shoes would have been better because the roads were all chewed up from snow. I got blisters on my blisters.
The course was beautiful and shaded which made all the difference.
Our pace was ok, not great but not horrible for a hilly run for me.
As you can see I started off strong and really faded toward the end hahaha
Oh the hills!!!!!!! The entire race was a series of ups and downs. There was no flat, this race just wiped me out.
Fun wood carved medals, though Brandon is disappointed we didn’t get t-shirts, he likes those more than the medals.
Overall it was fun and I am glad we did it but I wanted to cry the last 3 miles because I was so tired and my body hurt so bad.
We know to train better for the next one!
Oh and if you are a slow runner and don’t like being at the back of the pack don’t run this race, We crossed the finish line with only 4 people behind us….yes only 4. This was a small race of fast runners hahaha.
Two days in a row delivering packages and I have never felt more tired in my life. The trail didn’t even compare to this.
