The first 1.5 miles was pretty easy and I finished in about 23minutes. y entire run was 3 miles and it took me a little over 45 minutes. Not my best time, but not my worst either. I was taking a slow pace for multiple reasons:
1. I wanted to focus more on endurance than speed as this was a maintenance run
2. It was REALLY frigging hot out!!
I did see some rather odd and intriguing things during my run today though. First, as I was crossing my half mile marker, a man passed me on a bike. That's a normal thing, right? Well, what if the guy was riding his bike while holding an AC unit on the handle bars? Slightly odd, yes? Power to him for being able to do it because I wouldn't and he is most definitely saving on gas. I applaud you random biker man. I mentioned this siting on Facebook and one of my friends told me that during the Madagascar unrest she saw 4 men running down the street all carrying a refrigerator on their backs. Crazy! I've henceforth decided that there needs to be an ultra-marathon where people have to run carrying some sort of household appliance- television, AC, fridge, etc. I may call it the "Moving Out Marathon" or possibly the "Running with Crazy Shit Race".
Oh! I have some rather exciting news! On Facebook I liked a company called Zico. They make coconut water, of which I am a HUGE fan (seriously, it's SO yummy!). On their page they were having a Pledge posting where they were encouraging people to post things they would like to do/change/etc. If they like your pledge, they will send you vouchers for 12 bottles on free coconut water.
Guess whose pledge they chose?!
I feel like such a celebrity!
So, as soon as I get my vouchers in, I will be doing another give away.
I love coconut water and I am willing to share some with my wonderful readers!
Also, don't forget, my current Bondi Band give away is still open for entries, but not for much longer!
