Tuesday: Random hill program, level 6, 6 miles, 1:05:12, 10:52 pace.
1. For anyone in SoCal interested in running their Team Gab Virtual Race with... non-virtual people, I will be hosting a fun run at Mason Regional Park in Irvine on Saturday, Jan. 28th. Run start at 12 pm noon (redundant, I know). There's a mile loop that we can run, and fluids and GU will be provided (water, Gatorade or Powerade (whichever is on sale, because I'm thrifty that way), and GU gels and chomps - if you want anything else, please bring your own). Snacks and drinks provided afterwards. I don't have any fancy medals, or shirts, but there is a playground, if you'd like to bring your kids, and I'll be busy NOT running, so I can eyeball your kidlets - mine will be there (at least some of them). I'm a full-service volunteer.
THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO JOIN US, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, so I can get a head count. I would hate to not bring enough cupcakes to feed you all.
Note to Houston runners and Junie B, this is not a sanctioned event, just friends, running together. Please don't freak out and get me evicted from the park. Thanks.
2. I met up with some of my favorite SoCal blogger friends last night for Happy Hour. $3 margaritas the size of my face, and we emptied the place out. Good times.
3. I'm starting to plan my travel for my 2012 Runcations (Seattle, SanFran, Wine & Dine...) and our Make a Wish trip (July 12-18!) and realized this is complicated. I don't know how Becka has done it. She's a travel beast. I'm overwhelmed, and I'm doing a fraction of what she does.
