I need a nap *yawn*

I’m beat! Ran 15.2 miles today, 3:03. A bit slower than a couple of weeks ago, but those were near-perfect weather conditions. Today was very humid. I started out slowly and finished strong; in fact I think I was faster on the back half of the run.

Adding to my exhaustion is the fact that Nick and I went to Gilley’s last night. I wanted to ride the bull, but I didn’t have my camera. So, I saved that for next time. We had so much fun! Well, except for the train getting there (scary people) and getting back (drunk people on a pub crawl). I’m not much of a cowgirl (I don’t listen to country music by choice, and I can barely two-step, but Nick has a bit of a cowboy side to him, and he looks good in a cowboy hat, so we gave it a whirl. I’ll go back again, just driving next time.

Yeah, I think the getting back on the train was the worst. We were crammed into the train like sardines, shoulder to shoulder, and Nick is a little bit claustrophobic. He’d told me this before, but I hadn’t seen it till last night. Poor thing. All those people crowded in, and I saw his eyes go wide. We didn’t have a choice to get off though because we were on the last train of the night. Hiring a cab would have been ‘spensive. We managed to get through 10 stops without incident, and the drunk pub-crawlers all finally got off the train to drink more. Not that they needed to. Then we made a late-night stop at IHOP. I had french toast. Now I’m hungry again. So, off to take a shower, then spend the day recovering from my run.

Thanks to those who played the game on Friday! I hope you thought it was fun! I’ll finish the last three that are now due, and post those later.
