We did have a load of fun though - I had forgotten how much fun singing badly along to songs in your own private room courtesy of KTV, can be. Here are a couple of shots from our many, many, look-at-us-we're-rock-star photos, ahem...:
Now, today, on Sunday 5th October 2014, my friend Kristina, over at www.blogaboutrunning.com, is running her first full marathon!! She will be running in the Portland Marathon, and you can read all about her race today and how she's feeling pre-race here: http://www.blogaboutrunning.com/treating-the-marathon-as-a-celebratory-victory-lap/.
I am so excited for her - she has been training hard and even getting in some training and runs whilst on holiday in Paris and London! She is so ready for this marathon, and I am pumped for her. I know she's going to smash it, and this will be another notch in her ongoing training leading up to her running an ULTRA marathon!! GO, KRISTINA!!!! I can't wait to hear about your race.
In a great twist of Blogger-fate-coincidence, Kristen over at http://www.glitteranddust.com/ will also be running in the Portland Marathon today. Kristen is an amazing triathlete as well as a marathoner and she is aiming to run the marathon fast (as in, Boston Qualifying fast) amongst other things. You can read about her marathon goals here: http://www.glitteranddust.com/goals-portland-marathon/. Again, can't wait to hear all about it, Kristen: you're going to do brilliantly!! I wonder if you'll see each other at the race??
As for my Sunday-Funday? Hmm, not sure yet. There will be some dog-walking, and some eating delicious Chinese food, for sure, oh and I have a private lesson with a couple of students later on this evening (that's right - work, on my holiday! What the?!). We may go cycling around and we may go shopping. And who knows, I may be inspired by all the marathon running today to get out and go for an evening run after my lesson this evening. We'll see!
What's 'on' for YOUR Sunday? Are you running in an event today?
Do you like 'hotelling'? (My dream job would be travelling around the world and reviewing different hotels I stay in.)
GO Kristina and Kristen!!!
