this saturday i turned the ripe old age of 29. to mark my birthday, and get my long run out of the way, i signed up for a 10k in central park with dar. note to self: a 5am wake up on your birthday isn't so great, but i did get to embrace the day with an early start.
of course i threw on my TEAM FOX jersey and headed up to central park (thanks again cristina for the ride, and to chachi and luka for some birthday kisses!)
my warm up consisted of a dunkin iced coffee, a photo shoot, trip to the port-o-potties and some light stretching. i'm obviously the best at warming up. it was a hot morning and the gun went off at 8 and we were on our way. it was a rough race. my hamstring was really bothering me (even with my oh so hot neoprene sleeve on) and running just. felt. hard.
luckily dar and i stuck it out together, finished, and my run was out of the way so i could enjoy the rest of my birthday - which included brunch with my folks and then a few (or a few too many depending on how you look at it) cocktails with some friends. overall great day!
