Hump Day Miscellany – the Post Wedding Version

Looks like I have some questions to answer: (updates!)

1). There was no bias! Really – read the comments again and find the one from my sister. oops- that wasn’t a question.

2). The gent in the background at the shower is the husband of the hostess. He and his son did a wonderful job serving tea and pouring champagne. He was the perfect butler!

3).. Line dancing? Oh no, Momo! I am suffering a Brick House injury, Brick House being the world’s very best dance song evah!

4). I don’t believe there are any incriminating videos of me dancing like a crazy woman but I’m guessing there are more pictures. If any show up I’ll share.

5). UPDATE – I forgot the poem. Momo asked about it. You can read it here. Perpare to get a little verklempt.

My hammy is recovering and I got a great workout this evening with the one, the only Amazing Hip! I am in his ‘hood so I met up with him at a beautiful track where he was hoofing it at a 6 min/mile pace. I got on the track and was running at about 10:30 pace and when he passed me I asked him how many more repeats he had. I waited for him to finish and then we chatted for a minute and we ran his cool down together which for me ended up being a smokin’ pace. My splits were:

Lap 1 – .58 miles 9:20/ mile (I swear while I was running it said 10:39)
Lap 2 – 1 mile – 9:07
Lap 3 – 1 mile – 9:23
Lap 4 – .42 miles – 9:31

I am feeling GOOD! Thanks Jeff – you are the BEST! I couldn’t have done it without you. You really are the Amazing Hip.

UPDATE – that is PR! I have never run 3 milles that fast in my life. I can hardly wait for my next 5K so I can PR officially. Jeff, you are my new best friend.

    I didn’t realize that was Brick House. You are right- it is the best. That is the one that even our very reserved Logan was so moved by that we had to dance together! How fun is that!
