1- I am really excited to have the opportunity to pace the 1:50 pace group for the Long Beach half. As many runners understand, I am extremely nerdy when it comes to my Garmin. Not only that, but it's one of the BFFs. I named it Gary awhile back, and still have not changed it's (his) name. Yes we may face difficult challenges together, but that is expected in a serious relationship. Gary isn't beautiful anymore; I did fall and scratch him once (twice) but that is just the way life is. Some people may call him ugly and huge, but I think he's perfect.
The point is, it's fun to play around with paces and Gary helps a lot with that.

The things this girl brings
up though, I swear.
Sorry to anyone who had to witness my attempted break-ins into my own car. After MERCURY explained to me to make sure I stayed put by my car and that the help would be there in 20-30 minutes, I sat on a curb for over an hour and played Candy Crush. That's a lie, my lives were over in 15 minutes, so I had to go on Instagram, runnersworld.com, and engage in other important activities Iphone related. At this point, I am obviously starving because it's been an hour and I need some fuel, hello. I receive a phone call from MERCURY asking how my completed service went. THE FLIP. I call them back, and after being on hold for a while, a lady asks me for all my information again, and after explaining again to her that I have a hip and trendy '87 Stanza, she informs me it will be there in 10-15 minutes. And to make sure I STAY BY MY CAR.
50 minutes later of pacing up and down the street, going crazy, I see a tow truck next to my car. So I sprint over and the guy opens my door (passenger side because my drivers side is stuck forever closed for some strange reason) then jets off.
There is no moral to this story, it was just a vent. I apologize. And I know you are wondering if I got food- I did, no worries.

HAVE A GREAT SATURDAY! Because, why not? Enjoy the weekends, even if you work. That's why they were invented: to be enjoyed. (Just go along with it, or believe it and it will be true)
