Cupid’s Crawl 5K 2013 and more Shenanigans

Apparently, The Cupid’s Crawl has become MY race. I have participated in it the past three years (that’s how long it’s been around). This year, the race turned into more of an EVENT. One of the best things about having fitness-minded friends is that lots of people were on board with running!

Friday night, I hosted a pasta dinner. I bought waaaaay too much food.

I spent the afternoon vaccuuming and shoving things into my closet. Then I managed to fit ten people into my mini-sized apartment. I thought that it was a really good time. Sure, things were a little cozy, but we’re all pretty close and no one seemed to mind.

The race was great! All of my friends are super fast. Everyone (except for me) finished in the top five for their age group. Although I am not as speedy as my friends, I’m still satisfied with how I did yesterday. My official finishing time was 30:59, which is a full minute and forty five seconds faster than last year, and a pretty sweet ten second PR. I could get used to getting faster every time I race.

And now that I have drank the Garmin Kool-aid I have some cool data for ya!

My Garmin splits look a little funny because I forgot to stop my watch once I crossed the finish line. Also, I saw some of my sorority sisters volunteering on the course and you know I could not pass up a few hugs. Looking at those times gets me totally excited about running. I can’t believe how much I have improved without a whole lot of effort. We’ve already started planning our next race!

It’s T-Shirt Time!

This weekend, I am going to be running in the Cupid’s Crawl 5K for the third year in a row. Several of my friends are all also going to be participating, so I ended up hosting an impromptu t-shirt decorating party at my new apartment.

Arts&Crafts CollageFriends + Arts&Crafts + Wine = One great Friday night!

My friend Hotaka agreed to run the race with me, annnnnnnnd he said that he would wear whatever I picked out. Talk about a brave guy!

I've been teasing him a little.

I can’t post a picture of our actual shirts because I want for him to be surprised (and I’m a little scared that he will back out). So get excited because they are coming soon!
