Today was HIIT on the the gym treadmill. This time my slow points were around 4.5 and my high point was at 7.5! This is the first time in a very long time that I've been able to hold a 7.5 m/m pace for a minute, and I did that on my very last peak. That's just ridiculous... well, for me it is. I guess all that sports therapy IS working.
Last night I went out with the gang from work to celebrate a couple of birthdays. We went to a Thai restaurant in La Mesa, which served up a TON of food. Much to my surprise, I found out that one of my coworkers got married over the weekend, while flying in a helicopter over Las Vegas! I noticed the ginormous rock she was wearing on her left hand ring finger and asked about it. We weren't surprised that she got married, but surprised that she and her now husband drove to LV with a friend and got hitched in a helicopter. How cool is that?
They've been living together for years and didn't want a big to-do wedding. Her husband wanted to be married by an Elvis impersonator, but they couldn't find one who would join them in the helicopter on such short notice. Oh yeah, the birthdays were for Man Doctor and GG, pictured. (GG is also the new bride.) Someone forgot the dorky stuffed birthday cake hat that we all take turns wearing, so we improvised with wire ribbon from the gifts. We couldn't let this birthday celebration go without some sort of head wear -- It just wouldn't be right.
There was special election in California today, having mostly to do with the the state budget, education funding payment plan, lottery modernization, children's services funding, mental health funding, and elected officials salaries. Apparently, there wasn't a big turn out, which is kind of sad. I cast my ballot.
