I need a nap *yawn*

I'm beat! Ran 15.2 miles today, 3:03. A bit slower than a couple of weeks ago, but those were near-perfect weather conditions. Today was very humid. I started out slowly and finished strong; in fact I think I was faster on the back half of the run. Adding to my exhaustion is the fact that Nick and I went to Gilley's last night. I wanted to ride the bull, but I didn't have my camera. So, I saved that for next time. We had so much fun! Well, except for the train getting there (scary people) and getting back (drunk people on a pub crawl). I'm not much of a cowgirl (I don't listen to country music by choice, and I can barely two-step, but Nick has a bit of a cowboy side to him, and he looks good in a cowboy hat, so we gave it a whirl. I'll go back again, just driving next time. Yeah, I think the getting back on the train was the worst. We were crammed into the train like sardines, shoulder to shoulder, and Nick is a little bit claustrophobic. He'd told me this before, but I hadn't seen it till last night. Poor thing. All those people crowded in, and I saw his eyes go wide. We didn't have a choice to get off though because we were on the last train of the night. Hiring a cab would have been 'spensive. We managed to get through 10 stops without incident, and the drunk pub-crawlers all finally got off the train to drink more. Not that they needed to. Then we made a late-night stop at IHOP. I had french toast. Now I'm hungry again. So, off to take a shower, then spend the day recovering from my run. Thanks to those who played the game on Friday! I hope you thought it was fun! I'll finish the last three that are now due, and post those later.

  • Playing sardines when one is young can be a lot of fun, but not on a train.

  • Yeesh, those trains can be scary. I had a good time on the "BART" in San Francisco. It was really clean and nice. That was a while back, though.
    My little hick town does not even have a bus system! None of the towns in the area do, either. Oh well I would not ride it anyway...

  • Ohhh, bull riding huh? I can't wait to see that. And it's always scary being around large numbers of drunk people. They are so unpredictable.

  • Was the THE Gilley's from "Urban Cowboy". Cool! I might get on that bull after downing a few. Sounds more tame than a train stuffed with drunks.

    Great job on the 15.2 miles! Hope you had a good nap!

  • 15 miles!!! You go girl!!!!

    Ya know, I probably would have rode the bull without the camera. I can't wait to see the picture of it when you go back!

  • OK, I don't even mention running anymore, because my 3 miles look pathetic next to your 15.2 :-\

    That's awesome though. Really. Keep it up ;-)

  • I'm anxious to get back out putting in my miles in the mornings as soon as my energy level is back, I haven't been out in over a week since I was bitten by that spider. :(
