Last night I attended a function with Michael, a lecture on community revitalization, then went for "drinks" with his colleagues, most of them went to the same college as Michael, one of which was his first college teacher and mentor in his field, who he hadn't seen in years. Michael had a great time rehashing the good ol' days... Only one other person (besides me) was not in their field... I spent a lot of time listening. Since this was supposed to be my "free meal" night I had my dinner while everyone else had drinks, but it was actually a really clean meal since I've cut out alcohol until after the marathon... I had grilled chicken strips on top of a spinach salad... Anywhoooo... I'm trying to think back if I've dragged Michael to any of my industry lectures about optometric stuff, retail, and whatnot, where they're all talking shop... but not really. I think the closest thing was one of my high school reunions, but it turned out that he worked (at one time) with one of my classmates and another classmate was his work partner's client... Oh well...
My brother is still trying to get me to run in the Bay to Breakers event with him in San Francisco at the end next month... I'm still thinking about it and if I decide to go, I can sign up the day of the event... He really wants me to go to this one, just because it's so "colorful." Teehee. People get crazy for this run with costumes or the lack thereof... It's a 12K.
Today is a non-workout, non-runing day.
Things that went right: (so far)
*Eating is extremely clean.
*Took my dog to the vet and she didn't hide behind me like a little kid...
Things that need improvement:
*I still need to map out my 18 miler for this weekend. I think I know where I'm going, but I don't want to run more miles than I need to.
*Go shoe shopping... Shopping doesn't float my boat and I need a pair of foo-foo shoes that does not cost an arm and a leg.
