I instantly regret these pants. My buns are frozen.
I take home old books;
the ones that are too destroyed,
and I honor them.
Ensuring my toast doesn’t fall on the ground takes up more of my brain power than it should.
Dear Lady Whose Clothes I Just Accidentally Washed A Second Time,
OOPS! I’m more embarrassed than I’m letting on, and I can’t tell if you’re mad or also embarrassed for me. I’m hoping the latter. I’m so sorry.
The mortified chick with a book
Gazing at the snow
From my bedroom window’s glass
I open my book.
As I get older and older, it get harder for me to see younger people die.
Dear Pumpkin and Goat Cheese Empanadas I Made,
YOU ARE SO DELICIOUS AND I LOVE YOU.
The chick eating you (sorry not sorry)
I’ve run in all kinds of weather–snow, sleet, rain, freezing temperatures–but I’m still at a loss for motivation when it comes to laundry.
On Thanksgiving, the 27th of November, I ran a Turkey Trot 5k through Massapequa (which was a little awkward because all the street names were named after tribes). It was really cool–it started in a park and ran through the town before looping back into the park. Nick (as always) was there, as was his brother Christian and his girlfriend Kathey.
We strapped on our cool race shirts, did our best to stay warm, and took a pre-race photo together:
It snowed during the beginning of the race, and continued to be cold all the way until the end. I finished right behind Kathey with a smile–something I was really proud of because she’s tiny and other dumb reasons. We celebrated the race together at a diner, and took our post-race photo:
You can tell it’s after the race because Christian looks really excited. All in all, it was great–another race completed with record breaking stats (I almost cried at the end because I broke 40 minutes for a 5k):
Total Distance: 3.1 miles
Total time: 39:13 (my first sub-40 EVER)
Pace: 12:38 min/mi (42 SECONDS FASTER THAN THE LAST RACE!)
Place in the race: 814/1010
Place in age category: 65/79
