2018: Day Two Hundred Twenty-Eight

Practicing my game face for tomorrow night’s concert

#My365DaysOfHappy
IMG_6302.jpg

It was also really hot again today. And guess what - it’ll be even hotter tomorrow.

I really miss when summer meant high 70s...
IMG_6217.jpg

And in other news, I think someone stole my walking sprinkler. It’s gone missing.

Added some extra flair to my office at work. It’s like the empty space was waiting for this flag.

And yes - the thumbtacks are appropriately colored. Eternal blue; forever green.
IMG_6036.JPG

I tried. Gear all looked good except my dry suit seals were all rotted. Lame.
IMG_6009.JPG

Not my greatest of runs but I still managed a decent long run even though it was 77° outside.

Managed 19.99 for the week - whoops - just barely short of my 20 mile/week goal.

In theory I should start to taper down this week since I have a race in seven days. That won’t be too hard since it is more difficult getting longer distances in during the week.
IMG_6001.JPG

This is Olive giving me the “it’s hot let me in!” look.
IMG_5949.jpg

This morning’s run was the opposite of last Saturday’s run. It was already really hot at 9am. But I still managed a fairly slow 5.24 mile run. Definitely wasn’t my best.

On one hand I’m slightly disappointed with how this run went, but on the other hand I still did over five miles in an hour.

Trying to figure out how I’m going to run tomorrow. It’s supposed to be over 90° and I’m busy with soccer stuff until around 1pm. It might be a gym run instead of an outside run.

2018: Day One Hundred Ninety-Five

Trying to think of when the last concert I went to was. October of last year maybe? Probably.

Knowing it’s been awhile, I’m excited about the show I just got my ticket for. I remember seeing In This Moment back in 2007 opening for Megadeth. They were too screamy for me then, but their newer sound is more my speed. Plus Halestorm who I saw quite awhile ago. 2009 maybe?

Both loud rock bands fronted by beautiful women 🤘🏻

And bonus bird feeders! The birds have taken a liking to two of the three feeders and those two needed refills. Kind of fun having all these birds in the yard.

2018: Day One Hundred Ninety-Four

I’ve been slowly dipping my toes back into the world of comics by revisiting creators that I used to follow.

Tonight I finished all 42 issues of Terry Moore’s second series he did after wrapping up Strangers in Paradise - Rachel Rising.

Let me just say I enjoyed the hell out of this.

Plus it was fun seeing Katchoo again.

My day’s travels.

2018: Day One Hundred Ninety-Two

The sun is back again which means I’m back to wearing a hat. Of course, I forgot my hat on my walk today (I also forgot to change my shoes) so here’s me riding in style on the bus.

Too hot to run outside, so I did nice 3.5 miler inside. I don’t think being inside mattered, I was still soaked. It’s all worth it.

2018: Day One Hundred Ninety-One

The word of the day was Cairn.

My officemate was talking about a brewery with this name and someone else mentioned its meaning.

This is another word I was familiar with but never heard it said aloud.

On my lunch walks, I pass a house that has these little sculptures built in its flower bed. The sun was in my eyes so I didn’t see the quality of pictures until later.

Today also had a typical Cascadian sky.

2018: Day One Hundred Ninety

It’s a strange story - but I’m living in the same house I first moved into when I first moved back to Washington in 1998. But I moved out for a few years.

My next door neighbors have always been awesome. Words won’t even begin to adequately describe just how awesome they are.

Case in point - I came home today to discover that they mowed the middle property’s half acre.

2018: Day One Hundred Eighty-Nine

After a successful 3.26 mile run this morning, I headed out to donate blood.

Today’s donation was a little bit different - an acquaintance from Twitter had one of her employees pass away, and her surviving spouse said he would like people to donate blood in her honor.

So I did.

My 37th pint is for you, Chelsa.

2018: Day One Hundred Eighty-Eight

Set out for my long run this morning and not only managed a respectable 6.3 miles, I also did this distance nonstop.

Oh and to total humblebrag here, I logged four sub-11:00 splits. The fastest split was mile six at 10:23! (I actually logged successive faster mile splits at miles 4, 5, and 6!)

Gave me a nice confidence boost, especially at this distance, for the races I registered for. I may not be setting any PRs, but I feel strong still!

2018: Day One Hundred Eighty-Seven

Today has proven frustrating.

First I discover the reason for my internet issues - Comcast decided that my modem is no long compatible so now it won’t work. And I might as well buy a new router too while I’m at it.

Now to come up with a new WiFi name ...

And then because my first bus was late, causing me to miss my second bus, and then my backup bus wasn’t as late as the app said, I missed that one too. So I then missed my train. So I had pizza instead of running.

I earned it.

2018: Day One Hundred Eighty-Six

Someone once made fun of me for the fact that I seem to buy books faster than I can read them.

So. I enjoy books.

Today I got a fun one - did you know that the 1988 film “Who Fraser Roger Rabbit?” was based on a novel that came out in 1981?

Well today I got a gorgeous signed and numbered edition.

And who knows when I’ll actually read it ...

2017: Day One Hundred Eighty-Five

Celebrating my non-stop four mile 🏃🏻 this morning (brought to you by Five Finger Death Punch 🤘🏻) by having a cold Iron Horse 🍺 (Hand Cannon IPA - seemed appropriate) and homemade 🔥 🍗.

Kicking back ready to watch some Sounders ⚽️

2018: Day One Hundred Eighty-Four

I hadn’t ever heard of Faygo before having one at work during a hot dog day.

Google showed me that Faygo is the beverage of choice of Juggalos.

I of course had to have one today.

And now you know too. And knowing is half the battle!

2018: Day One Hundred Eighty-Three

Some days, these lunch walks feel more amazing. Today was one of those days.

Maybe it was the grey skies, or the tiny bit of drizzle that hung in the air, never quite falling.

As usual, I keep expecting to see a guardsmouse or two patrolling their borders.

2018: Day One Hundred Eighty-Two

After a day of putting all the things together:

New lawnmower
New 📺
New AC hose attachment

And a successful run of 3.55 miles AND registering for my first TWO 🏃🏻 of Running Version 2.0

Now it’s time for 🌮, 🍺, and comic books

#My365DaysOfHappy
IMG_5750.JPG

Holy shit!

I did it!

I registered for not one - BUT TWO running races!

This will be my fourth time running Torchlight, and it’ll be my first time doing the Sounders run (it’s only a 5k this time - no 9k option.). But I’ll get a medal and a shirt at both runs!

Excited. And nervous. But I’ve done these distances so many times so I’ve got this!

2018: Day One Hundred Eighty

One of the added bonuses to riding the train to work everyday again is being able to have almost two hours a day to read.

I even completed my 50th book the other day (and hit my 2018 reading goal!)

Today I finished this book - The Bear and the Nightingale. It took a little while to get into it, but when I finally did, this book was amazing. Just wow. One of my favorite reads this year (and there has been quite a few I believe.)

It’s a good thing I have the next one in the series ready to go!
