A little bit about my weekend:
well, I definitely went to see B. Spears on Friday night and was extremely impressed by the performance. Even the Pussycat dolls did an awesome job. I was never planning on going to the concert and I’ve never been to a Britney Spears concert so I guess there is a first for everything. They went with the circus theme for the concert and that was a great choice because it was very entertaining. I almost forgot I was at B. Spears’s concert and I almost thought I was really at a circus.
In between sets when she would change they would have performers come out and put on little shows. Overall very well done. My favorite was when a woman came out with two very built men and they had a board. She would step on the board and then the two men would lift it up to their shoulders. This board was not straight though, it was flimsy and would dip down with the woman’s weight. Then, they would bounce the board for her and she would fly up into the air, do two front flips and then land back onto the board. They would move to where she was, catch her, and then the board would dip down and they would bring it back up. I was mesmorized. Totally freaking out. That was crazy. Awesome job!
After the concert there was obviously a shit ton of traffic and I knew I wouldn’t be leaving any time soon so I ended up tailgating with a whole group of women that were in front of my car. They had a lot of food and it was quite delicious.
When I finally arrived back to M’s house I went straight to sleep and we had to wake up at 6:30 AM for the half marathon! 13.1 miles. WOW. I was extremely nervous. This was my first one. What if I suck and I couldn’t run the full 13 miles?!?
The first mile was awful, it was all up hill and pretty hard to run all the way up although I did pull through, then we did a loop through the starting point and next came a five mile loop, then finally the same five mile loop again for the thirteen miles. I did walk at short intervals during the race because it was hard to keep running and finish. Somehow, I pulled through and we finished at 2:36:47. Yes, I know that is not the best time but it was my first one and I’m damn proud. M could have ran much faster but I held her back and she was kind enough to stick with me. 🙂
Overall an awesome day. I got my medal, and now I’m sitting here on Sunday morning… in bed. This is where I plan to be for the rest of the day. I have a research paper to work on anyway. Hopefully my body will stop hurting soon.
Its hard to believe that I am running a marathon in just one month. Wowsers.
