A few people have commented on my profile song, Buddha’s Delight. It’s the song that’s been stuck in my head all week, and it’s on the “Music and Lyrics” soundtrack. It makes me laugh everytime I hear it. It’s a parody of Britney Spears’ “Toxic.”
I completed my first 5k this morning, running approx 1/3 of the race. My time wasn’t stellar (54:14) but for my first 5k I’m proud that I made it through. I used it as more of a social walking time to chat with my WW buddies. I was greeted at the finish line by the cartoonish LA County Fair mascots, a horse, cow, and pig…who gave me a high five and I ran through the finish line. I am sore, but empowered. Take that, Dr. Tello!
After the race, I grabbed a pineapple smoothie at Podge’s, discovered a cool little thrift store in old town La Verne, ran some errands, watched a few things off my tivo, went to an Open House for a family in our ward that is moving, and helped Rosie go through a bunch of clothes to donate or sell.
I went out to dinner with Liz and some of their friends to celebrate Emily’s b-day at Honolulu Harry’s (which is owned by Dr. Lally). I met a lot of new, fun people, had some excellent food, showed off my Florida pics, Rosie entertained the crowd, and I had an all-around good time.
All in all, it’s been a good day. I’m going to take my motrin and go to bed.
