» 29 Years Old FueledByLOLZ
Today is my 29th birthday.
For some reason why, I at all times imagined at age 29; I might feel and look older.
Maybe like an grownup? It hasn’t come (but). Anyway, having a look again at age 28, I had a really perfect yr. I’ve been an “adult” for a decade now.
What Did I Do During Year 28?
Last yr, I began age 28 with my first “real” path race. I ran the Copper Mountain 25ok, and it was once some of the best possible working recollections I’ve had.
It’s onerous to imagine that was once a yr in the past now!
Last summer season, I did a large number of touring up and down the East Coast. We visited circle of relatives, I noticed pals from faculty, and I simply had a excellent summer season. In August, I ran/hikes my 2nd path race in Killington, VT. To me, it was once tougher than the race in Colorado for the reason that terrain was once a lot more technical. Then within the fall, I modified gears totally and educated for the NYCM. I didn’t suppose I might do any other marathon, but if the chance to run within the “sub-elite” corral introduced itself, I couldn’t say no. I’m happy I did, and it was once some of the best possible working reports I’ve had.
Since the NYCM, working hasn’t slightly come into position. I’ve educated, however I haven’t had any “spectacular” or wonderful races. I’ve had a large number of nice and amusing races, however I’m neatly off PRs. Right now, I’m content material with that.
In January, my husband and took a shuttle out to California. We drove from San Diego to San Francisco and simply explored. We had no time table (as maximum of our holidays are).
The spotlight of the Spring was once adopting my two cats: Frick and Frack. I at all times had cats rising up, and I’ve sought after them for years, however our landlords or landladies at all times mentioned no.
Finally, after proving we had been excellent renters, they agreed. We discovered those two cats on the native safe haven, and once I discovered they’d been there for 5 years (YES five), I knew I sought after them. They had been shy to start with however have pop out in their shell.
The previous few months were quiet so far as private and working existence is going. I’m coaching for the Big Cottonwood Marathon in early September. Running any other downhill marathon terrifies me for the reason that remaining one wasn’t my favourite race ever — cheers to doing issues outdoor of your convenience zone.
Fulfilling my different interest, I additionally went to over 50 New Jersey diners remaining yr and feature now been to 253. I don’t know if I’ll make it to 300 (if we transfer). When I began this adventure five years in the past, I by no means imagined going to 250 diners. But as they motivational quotes say: you by no means know till you take a look at!
Anyway, thanks age 28 for the recollections and to friends and family for supporting me!
This yr, I sought after to do one thing and other for my birthday, so on July 20th, I’m working the Teterboro 5k to Homes for Our Heroes: a undertaking to construct protected, reasonably priced housing for army and army households.
