Rock ‘n’ Roll DC Half Marathon

Saturday, March 11th, 2017

[Still catching up!]

[lip smack – I couldn’t decide between Oof! Aye aye aye! Phew! Woo! etc… So, let’s go with one of those lip roll raspberries thing, because I don’t know what sound I want… Anyway…]

My bus was delayed, and I got in preeeeetty late (or early in the morning – however you wanna look at it).

I made my way to my friend’s house, and we went to bed.

Then, it was time to get up suuuuuper early in the morning. The marathon started, I think an hour or so before the half, and I was singing for both.

The cool part about singing twice in one morning – and having a good friend of mine with me – was that he recorded my performance for me, and we went over it between performances, so I could pick out little things I wanted to do better.

After the first performance, we got to go have VIP breakfast. (Yum!)

We met a number of interesting people there – some also tacking big projects of running in all the states and all kinda jazz.

And then it was back out to sing again and then take off.

Fareed is lovely, so lovely. And he stuck around with me, even though I was quite slow until we got to mile 10. I had to toooootally slow down, as I was way tired, and he had a full day of some things he had to do. So, he went ahead with my blessing.

But it is embarrassing as all get out that I can’t keep up with my friends!

Aye aye aye aye aye aye aye aye aye.

Sigh.

Then once I got back to his house, I slept for approximately 80,000 years. And then he and his sister and I all went out to dinner and eventually I bussed back to New York and slept some more [laughs exhaustedly].

Another 13.1 down. And onward we go!

I'd love to hear from you! So whaddya say?
