I missed you guys and my normal life!!! I worked 13 days straight :(
They worked me like a dog in Palm Springs and it was hella hot over there!!! They would have worked me more, but I drew the cut off time at 9:30PM. Which by that time I had been working since 7:30AM. One day it was the hottest place in the country, where it reached 112 degrees!
Two days I had to drive down for class and then make the 130 miles drive back up. It was brutal!
However, for this payperiod I clocked in like 68 regular hours, 18 overtime and 16 double time/overtime. Big paycheck here I come!!! YIPPEE!!!
I left work early on the Thursday because I was dead tired and could barely keep my eyes open and Friday I had the day off!
I went with Jay and Jayla to Huntington Library. It's BEAUTIFUL there!!! More on that tomorrow with details on my surprise, too!
Saturday was RACE DAY!!!
Mind you I was exhausted, so wasn't at my peak performance, nonetheless, I finished the race!!! Luckily, I had my two older sisters to help me stayed focus, motivated and keep my pace. It was a long 13.1 miles through Camp Pendleton's hills and mountains. The first part of the race had about three hills and was mostly down hills, the second half had like 4 hills and was all UP HILL! OUCH! What is up with me and picking runs with a lot of hills in them???
We ran for like 10 miles straight and then had to run/jog/walk two miles and then ran the last one.
What really got me was when my sis started talking about a dream she had with my Dad. Then, both sisters started talking about him, memories and their favorite stuff to do with him. All of a sudden, I could just smell him and I started to cry. I put my head down and tried to not let anyone notice. Of course they did after awhile, plus I had to stop because it felt like someone just punched me in my solar plexus... I guess moments like this will continue to happen forever!
So here are the race results....
Total Time: 2:47:35
Race Pace: 12.48
Women Division (age 25-29) placing: 29th
