Cinco de Mayo

I had the best night of sleep evah last night! I was so pooped yesterday from getting up at 4 am (and not sleeping well the night before), running, and then driving 3 hours home, and then spending the afternoon furniture shopping, that by 9:30 last night I was zonked out. I slept so well that today I feel great and barely congested at all now! Ahhhhh....feels good to breathe in and out without mucus rustling the passageways.

Plus, today is an easy going day. I have a few papers to finish reading, some last grades to calculate and then I will enter my semester grades and be done with this term! Of course, the summer term begins on Thursday (what a stupid day to start, right?), but I still get Tuesday and Wednesday off to chillax at home.

Tonight? Well, Jerry and I bought some new furniture yesterday and so Jerry spent all evening yesterday assembling it, and tonight we are going to re-arrange our living room/dining room. Maybe I'll post some pictures of it when we're done. I also think I may go for a recovery run this evening -- the legs aren't sore today so I might try to put in something short. Then, I deserve a Corona (it is Cinco deMayo).

For those interested in possibly participating in the Princess Half Marathon that I mentioned yesterday, go here to check out info on it. It's March 8, 2009, which is a Sunday. The course would be somewhat similiar to what I described from the 15K yesterday (admittedly, the parts between parks is not fabulous, but MGM and Epcot are fabulous to finish in -- and those are the miles when you need something interesting, right?). I think I may almost deifnitely do it. My tentative plan for half mary's begins in December, and I plan on doing 4 in a row -- West Palm in December, Miami in January, A1A in Feburary, and the Princess in March (I figure I may as well take advantage of the FL schedule during the months that races are pleasant).

But, let me know if you think you may, and perhaps we could discuss a group run for it!

Check ya later, homies! Enjoy your tacos and Dos Equis today!

Ahhhh yes! It's Cinco de Mayo! Thanks for the reminder!

What did you buy? I can't wait to see what you purchased.

As for Cinco De Mayo...I will eat my taco and pretend I am having an ice cold Corona with a lime, a large margarita on the rocks with a salted rim, and what the heck, I may as well take that pretend shot of tequila with a chaser of tomato and pineapple juice (don't knock it, it's good). What holiday haven't I missed out on this year where I don't get to have a drink? Jeepers.

Did you all notice that you don't get a regular WDW medal???

I KNOW!!!

YOU GET: Half Marathon Finishers receive a very special Princess Tiara medal

the only thing better would be a REAL tiara!!!

I know, very *girl* of me, but you know you'd be pretty frickin geeked too. . . . Like a REAL PRINCESS!!!!

Magic happens here people!!! HELLO, it’s Disney!

I'm totally gonna sign up. . . . $120- is a lot for a half; BUT if I come down Friday at 4ish, get my packet, I can do WDW on Saturday & the race on Sunday & back to WDW & still be to work Monday

I know you can’t tell, but I'm sooooooo excited about this.....I LOVE this place.

We are supposed to do Mexico between Feb & April . . . guess anytime’s good except Mar 6-8!! :o)

I totally *heart* Jess right now for posting this (my DH hate you though, I've called him 3 times with new info. . . ) lol

Four in a row, you are very ambitious! Enjoy the new furniture.

I might have to consider that race too!

Jess said...

The princess half sounds like so much fun. If the race was on Saturday and not a Sunday I'd be so down for it, but I don't think I can run a race and then immediately a hop a plane to fly back home...

OMG that looks like so much fun!
Happy Cinco de Mayo!!!!

Awsome on such a quick recovery on the legs after the 15K! A tiara medal, that would be sweet. I would totally walk around in it for a couple of days.
Glad you got some killer sleep. Make sure to post pics of the new furniture. YAA, on the couple of day of rest before summer session. Enjoy your Cinco drink a couple extra Corona's since your off on the 6th :-)

If I thought I could do a half marathon by then I would definitely be in! Nothing like a Princess race to get a girl motivated.

J~Mom said...

I wish I lived closer to come and do the princess half!

Mendy said...

I may consider doing it. It depends on our "family" plans... hint, hint.

I'd like to meet the famous Jess!

Sounds like a fun Florida race schedule.
