I turned 34! and celebrated by going to the Back to School night and Meet the teacher night at school! and by running 3.4 miles.
The president of the PTO said the funniest things I've heard "Come and help us out in events, we won't look at you like weirdos".... it's funny, because they always look at me like I have 3 heads and 5 hands when I'm there to help, they all just stare and look confused.
|Thank you to my dear co-workers for my cake. I'm sorry that I don't like butter cream or chocolate, this guys rock!|

On Saturday to continue the birthday celebrations, we drove to Philly for a change of scene. I had half of a glass of Sangria and for dessert we had ice cream, the day turned out to be beautiful!
Sunday was my last training long run, as Virginia Beach Rock 'n Roll half is next Sunday. I made it a progression run that wasn't as progressive as I would have wanted. Picking hills for the middle of the distance was not my best idea. But I was happy with my pace. After that half glass of Sangria the day before, I was thirstier than in any other training runs.

Late Sunday night, I saw in Twitter that beloved Mexican singer, and song composer Juan Gabriel passed away Sunday Morning. It is very sad, he has written over 1,800 songs, and his songs have been performed by EVERYBODY in the Latin music scene. I grew up listening to all of his songs, and watching his concerts on TV. Thank you JuanGa for the memories!
I leave you with this song, one of his best. Somebody once broke up with me with this song. Aside from the breakup, it's a great song.
So, here I come Virginia Beach! ready for this Half Marathon!
