Happy Belated Birthday to This Old Lady

That’s right, I said Happy Birthday to myself because why the hell not?

So, when your new job duties include being on your computer all day, it is hard to want to be on your laptop at night. The only time I do crack my laptop at night is to work. I like my new job duties, but they definitely keep me hopping.

In between my working and working and working, I found some time to run a few races of Labor Day weekend. Labor Day? Yeah, I’m just catching up from two weeks ago.

Chad and I ran in the Boy Scout Half Marathon & 5k. We ran the Tenderfoot 5k. The weather was perfect for running and Chad ended up with a new PR. I did not PR at all. Not even close. I haven’t run in quite some time and knew I wouldn’t be at my best. But, I always love a good run for fun! As a Run Toledo Ambassador, I was able to rep them with my swanky new ambassador shirt.

The very next day we ran in the Olander 24 Hour Ultra Run. This was an experience for sure! There are two ways to participate in the run; as an individual and as a team. The goal is to run as many laps around Olander Park as possible. Each lap is 1.091 miles. Imagine damn near 24 hours of running. Wow, right?
The winning individual ran 110 laps which equals out to 120.07 miles. The winning team ran 149.9 laps which equals 163.62 miles. The team I was on, Candu Run Run, finished with 146.61 laps which equals 160.02 miles. We were SO damn close to winning.

I’ve been keeping up with the gym (and not running as I should) and since Chad and I moved in together, I don’t live next to the Maumee River. Crazy sad because I love living near the water, but I remembered that there is an amazing park that I love to visit, Bo loved it too.

I celebrated my 36th birthday last week and which I loathe getting older, it isn’t getting to me…too much. The number ‘6’ behind the the 3 is hard to read to be honest with you. Time is slipping past me and I can’t handle it sometimes.

Look at this amazing cake that Chad got for me. I have never had my picture on a cake and this was awesome. I have had my fill of cake for a little while. HA, lies! Anyone who knows me knows that I can eat cake every damn day! But I don’t because my ass is the size of Ohio otherwise. Chad made this a fantastic day for me and I’m thankful I have him in my life to do all the things with me. 

I have a ton of races on my calendar this fall and I’m going to be around more in an annoyingly fun way.
Happy Running & Lifting!
