Palm trees, hills of death, mangoes, OH MY!!!

I'm back from the Cali coast. ...I know, I don't know why I came back either!

Friday morning I got in a 5 mile run, on the California hills. I want you to know that I didn't plan to run 5 miles because I can't run that far; or so I thought. I was TRICKED into running 5 miles by being told we were running 3 to 4 miles.


West coast running coach:  We'll do 3-4 miles. Can you handle that?

Running Curl:  Yeah, I think so!
Cut to 45 mins later.

WCRC:  Ok, so if we add one more mile,...
RC:  ANOTHER MILE?!?!?! WCRC:  As I was saying...if we add another mile, you'd have your 10k. That was 5 miles. Congrats! RC:  (wheeze, wheeze, pant, pant) Huh? Awesome! I'm going to kill you! Can we walk now? I feel amazing. I think I'm dying. Ok, I'm good. It's time for a mimosa.

I spent time in the pool, the hot tub, and on the rooftop deck. I did morning yoga on that deck btw. I'm sure our friends' neighbors enjoyed that scene.

We visited Mission Beach, old downt…

Let's talk about food. food /fo͞od/

Noun Any nutritious substance that people or animals eat or drink, or that plants absorb, in order to maintain life and growth. (Notice this says 'nutritious, and maintain life and growth) Synonyms nourishment - fare - nutriment - aliment - pabulum I love food. I can eat food everyday! I like spicy food, sweet food, gooey food, and for sure, free food. Food is good. (those don't rhyme and that has always bothered me) Bodies need food. What they don't need is 'food'. Know what I mean? I can snarf on some Taco Casa, or Bueno, or Qdoba. I like pizza. I like chips and salsa and cheap chicken enchiladas covered in cheese with rice covered in cheese, with a side of queso with some cheese on it. What I don't like is feeding it to my body every day. I don't like to feel bloated and sluggish. I want a night out to eat to feel special, not normal. Aside from eating out, eating in can be just as bad. Prepackaged = preservatives. P…

Long time draft about a house, incomplete work. Grade: F++

This post has been a draft for a month now. I have been holding out to add pics of the house. I still haven't taken pics of the house. So, here ya go. I'll do better next time. :)

June 13th: We closed! I bought a house before hitting the olddirty awesome age of 30. I tried to move in that night, but alas, the a/c wasn't working. 100 degrees and 90% humidity...uh, no thanks. I stayed at the rent house until Sunday, and then hoofed it to the hot house. Blah!

I slept in the dining room with a little a/c until Wednesday, only to find out that the repair guy had fixed the a/c Sunday, but didn't know it. Super fabulous. I'm so over my allergies.

During the sweatfest I opened the windows upstairs to cool it off so that I could shower in the upstairs bathroom. Due to a nice summer wind storm, I now have a broken storm window laying on the roof.

Ah...ownership. Awesome. (read: not!)

All is well with the world now though. Air conditioned, window removed, but not replaced yet…

I made it

I'm 30! I didn't wake up with bags under my eyes or wrinkles...at least not any new ones. I'm sore from head to toe from my new advanced bootcamp class, but I feel great!

 Here's to the 30s. The 20s are soooo last decade!
