sunday bloody sunday

Friday night I was invited to a glamorous (also free) event at the Lux at the Trump hotel. I was the good one, stayed sober, drove my drunk friend home and what happened... yep I was still too tired the next day to go and do my long run with my Boca crew. I think I am getting too old to party like a rockstar. Here's a picture from the Honolulu Pulse of me and two of my besties at the event. The theme was "Great Gatsby". My dress was borrowed from my friends 15 year old daughter.

My favorite picture from the girls clean up nicely.

As punishment for missing my run, I have to do my 14 mile run tonight, alone, before yoga.

It was still worth it!

ain't no mountain high enough

Today I had to be one of the best runs that I have had in a long time. I was a little nervous because we were doing a totally different route and that area of the island is known to be hot and not have many water fountains. The nice thing about training with my group is mobile aid stations, it is so nice to have Gatorade parked every few miles.

For those of you who are familiar with Oahu, the run today started at the old Foodland in Hawaii Kai (Annie, close to where the red party was), we went past Hanauma Bay (where we went snorkeling) to Makapu'u and then ran up to the top of the lighthouse path. It actually wasn't that hot and from all the hill drills I did awesome on the trail part up the mountain. I came a little short on mileage but for all the hills we did, it ended up being 2 hours anyway which was my target time to run. Over all, I feel like my training is going great this year. Having the experience of last year under my belt is really helping me to be a better runner this year.

76 days!

heyyyyy sexy lady

If you haven't heard this song yet, I don't know what rock you are living under. I absolutely LOVE it.

Haven't written much lately because I haven't had much to say. Running is going well. I feel a little behind from last year, but not worried about it. I'm still swimming a lot but have dropped the biking a little.

The newest development is that I am doing yoga again! I can't wait to see how the increased flexibility helps with my running form and swimming. My coaches have told me for awhile that I need to do yoga because my shoulders really are a mess. I guess this is what happens when you type for 8 hours a day.
