Funny, weird Story... Where is my Shoe?
On Monday at work, I took off my one shoe under my desk, because my foot was hot. 5 minutes later, somebody asked me a question, and I got up, but couldn't find my shoe! stood up and answered the question, knowing that it was not possible to leave my desk. I took a picture, to send my sister... this are the things we share with each other...
|Pink Darth Vader socks..... I need motivation to get up early in the morning.|
How does somebody lose a shoe under a desk? Well, do you see that computer tower? I use it to elevate my feet and apparently, to hide my shoes!
I know, where else do you get random stories of shoes lost under a desk?
Resting was very welcome this week! My calves were a bit tight, so rolling and stretching it was all week.
Whenever I need to take out the trash at night, I put on my running headlamp... my trash is at the end of row of apartments, and often there is people walking their dogs.
Does anybody else wear their headlamp for other household chores?
Meeting awesome Bloggers
On Friday after completing many piles of work at the office, we headed to DC for the Half Marathon. I met Chaitali for dinner, and we enjoyed a wonderful chat and a delicious dinner, She also did me a huge favor and picked up my race stuff, because I couldn't leave work early! Thank you Chaitali, for letting us crash the dinner with your friends! You are awesome!
On Saturday morning we put on all the layers, and prepared for a cold half marathon, surprisingly, it didn't feel as cold once we started running. The race was amazing, I had a great time! I'll recap later this week.
Right after getting my medal at the finish line, my left foot started hurting a lot! I couldn't walk and was limping. It took a long time, but the pain eventually went away.
After the half marathon, and a short trip to the DC Metro, we upgraded ourselves to the new century and took a Lyft for the first time!! We loved it!
The rest of the weekend was spent eating and drinking recovery food.
The Summer Before the War by Helen Simonson. I'm having a hard time getting into this book.
My legs are a bit sore, but nothing out of normal. We are expecting snow tomorrow, so that might turn out to be another unexpected rest day.
