I signed up for this race on a whim on December 31st, figuring I’d have almost two months to prep. I think I ran twice the week before the race, each just 3 miles. In other words, not ready at all.
Noooooo! When I pulled out my bindings from their box last year in preparation for a snow trip, pieces of plastic were falling off. I flip the binding over, and the bottom part of the gas pedal was falling apart.
I’m sure it’s obvious from the URL, but for those who lack attention to detail, my domain (site URL) has changed from vparkhere.com to victoriapark.blog! Expect more consistent updates about my life and my past and future travels. I am going to jet off in under two weeks, so keep your eyeballs peeled for some unedited photos! Honestly, who’s got the time to edit photos?
I’ve had so many drafts all up in my head of these amazing topics to write about, but never bothered going to my dashboard to write up a post. But this year’s going to be different! For example, I’ve just signed up for a 10K, even though I hate running. I guess that’s not really a drastic move, I’ve done a half marathon before. Whoop, did I just do a humble brag? YES. And did I just look up “humble brag” to make sure I used it correctly? YES.
I’ve had buyer’s regret ever since getting victoriapark.blog (bye bye privacy!) but then again, there are actual parks called Victoria Park in any country that England has laid a finger on, so maybe I’ll be able to just blend into the background. Although the whole point of having a blog is making more people look at it, so I shouldn’t be wanting to blend in with everyone else. Look at me, worried about invasion of privacy as though I’m a celebrity. I have nothing juicy in my life that’ll make headlines. Sometimes I don’t wash my face when I go to the gym early in the morning, because I’m going to sweat anyway. I do brush my teeth though, and I wish other treadmill runners would follow suit. Good grief, if the CO2 intake of plants was based on strength, the bag of smells I inhale would nourish an orchard.
The Fitbit Surge really isn’t so bad, it’s a nifty device and there are a lot of features a stats-hungry athlete would love. It just takes getting used to.
At 10 AM this morning, I was at Castle Rock State Park. The weather was dreary, it was forecasted to have light rain showers throughout the day with a humidity of 90%. I was tired from the night before, but with a full breakfast under my belt and the promise of hanging out with friends, I soldiered on and had absolutely no regrets.
On Saturday, I decided to head over to a popular burger joint near Sunnyvale Costco to fulfill my two-week long craving.
I flew down to LA on Saturday, May 5th, to see my friends perform at the KTMF. I am usually not one to splurge on a flight just to see friends in LA, that’s what Facebook stalking is for, but this was a special case since they were flying all the way over from Korea and I’m pretty sure it would never happen again.
Sweet Tomatoes is one of the few American restaurants my family will frequent, when we deign to eat out. We’re strictly a Korean, Italian, or burger restaurant family, so pretty much the generic pastas and burgers with a dash of Asian cuisine.
