SMART... ME? YEAH NOT SO MUCH....

So, I went to Quebec City conviced I would ran the 10K with Lisa but we finally went for the half-marathon.... decision made after having too many beers! Maybe not my smartest decision but time will tell... the good news: I survived. I ran with a good friend and thank god she was there or I would have given up as I was in a lot of pain starting at mile 10. Let's just say those easy 5Ks with my Dad are NOT the best training for a half... and I knew that. We just decided to be silly and do it for fun and fun we had as you can see in our 'costumes'....


We got lots of cheering because of what we were wearing and the fact that Quebec City is celebrating is 400th year. It was a great boost of energy. It was a PWed for both of us but it was HOT (ask Leana....) and we were there to have fun. =) Couldn't have asked for a better racing partner! So glad I did it and my foot is not so bad today.

I spent an afternoon with Leana and her Mom and it was very nice to meet her, she's a lot taller than I expected ;-) Sorry, you didn't have the race you were hoping for but the weather is so unpredictable... Monday would have been a GREAT day for a race!!!

So glad to hear you had lots of fun. That's a good goal to have and a more important goal then speed when the conditions are sweltering! Good for you for tackling that half!

LMAO, some of my best decisions have been made over one too many drinkys as well :P You only live once, right? Looks like a blast, chica!!

Funny girl...making decisions over beers is always fun ;-)

Glad you had fun, and meeting new friends is neat! One bloggy friend of mine said I was much taller than she expected, too.

Sonia, it was so great to meet you too! I'm sorry it didn't work out to meet up after the race, but on Sunday night I really just wanted to relax in bed the whole time! I'm glad you guys had fun on the half - good for you for tackling it. It definitely was a scorcher! I hope to see you at another race sometime soon.

I seem to make bad decisions after too many drinks as well. :)

At least you had a good time!

Sorry it's been so long since I've been around, I needed to take some time off. Thanks for your support from before. I missed my blogging buddies :)

I was JUST going to say what Laurel said about decisions and drinks!

Looks like you had fun despite the pain and the heat!
