Yesterday was my day off and I was DESPERATELY needing some attention in the hair area. I always put this off for as long as possible because it takes FOR-EV-ER to do my hair. And I am just too ADD to sit in a chair for that long.
But I was to the point that I could not put it off for another minute. So I booked an appointment with my friend Kirsten to get it colored.
I had initially told her that all I needed was a highlight. But one thing lead to the other and I ended up going from this:
She told me that she cut 7 or 8 inches of my hair! And I absolutely LOVE it. Plus it will save me time getting ready in the morning, and I can put it in cute little pigtails for races :)
Speaking of races...I just signed up for one next Friday that I am pretty excited about.
Its for an organization called Underawareness, and its for a great cause. The organization provides children that are less fortunate with basic needs (such as underwear, clothing, and food). Its awesome when you can run a race AND contribute to a good cause.
And did I mention that its AT THE ZOO?!! It starts at 630 PM, after hours for the zoo, and takes a loop around the zoo. Afterwards you get to stick around and party it up at the zoo with private access to all the attractions! I can't wait!
Also back home in good ol' Tennessee, they are gearing up to run one of the most popular races in the area (Kenyans come run this thing) the Crazy 8s. One of my good friends and running buddy from home has been training like crazy for it and is really hoping to make a PR tonight!
Everyone wish Caitlin luck tonight! I REALLY hope she gets that PR that she has been working for!
Today is a rest day. Because of the fact that my entire day is filled with work. Yesterday, however, I did manage to get a pretty good 6 mile run in. Here are the splits:
Mile One: 8:32
Mile Two: 8:12
Mile Three: 8:03
Mile Four: 7:51
Mile Five: 7:54
Mile Six: 7:48
I think I may be getting used to this whole altitude thing. I'm still a bit slower than I was at sea level, but I'm getting there!
Oh hey! Its Friday! Anyone got any fun weekend plans? races?
