I’ve got a lot banging around in my head as I write this. Most of it involves running. SURPRISED YOU!
Does anyone know of a good 5k for me to run before the end of the year?
- Relatively close to travel to, Baltimore being ideal
- Relatively flat and fast, as to finally break the 30 minute 5k barrier (I mean, really Molly)
- Before January 1, 2013
That’s not asking too much, is it? I don’t think so. Good thing I always plan ahead.
LOOKING GOOD! 63 degrees with a some a.m. showers is perfect race-day weather, if you ask me.
Since I have to pack the Thursday night, my strategy involves bringing eight different “top” options and four different “bottom” options… and making a game-time decision. The very fact that I’m under-trained, under prepared, not organized, and generally unsure of what my plan is for the race is pretty hilarious to me. Just under a year ago, I ran my first half marathon and I was so hyper-organized about it. Now, I don’t even know the start time, what I’m going to wear or eat or what time I’m going to wake up. I just hope I remember to pack my shoes… barefoot half, anyone? SIKE. I’d never do that.
Any last-minute tips for this half, 990 square?
And now for a non-running question: How does one know when one is too old for long hair?
If you don’t know me IRL, you probably don’t know that I have a young looking face. I’m 32, will be 33 in January sometime (allegedly – but that’s another story that I don’t think I told here yet), and have long hair. It’s nice hair, I ain’t too proud to admit, but it’s long.
How do I know if it’s too long?
I don’t want to put forward a persona of “I’m young!” because, let’s get real, my hobbies/personality/style does enough of that already.
Give me your thoughts, Internet. I have a haircut scheduled for Dec. 22 and I need to know (to prep myself) if it’s gonna be a trim or a cut.
Keep in mind, I am my hair (much like Lady Gaga).
