Orlando Bound for Lolo - Week 1

So, I'm committed. I signed up for my first half marathon (Team in Training - Orlando Bound for Lolo). I will create monthly posts to outline my progress, my workouts and struggles.  So here it goes!


Sunday - I signed up. Did my research. Ask my friend and TNT alumni how it worked and recruited my friend do consider doing it with me. Success! I had already packed my gym bag and brought it work thinking I would repeat and actually succeed in running eight miles back and forth from the Argonaut Hotel to the Golden Gate Bridge and back. I did not. I forgot I had dinner plans with my Bride and she was running late, so I got at least 4 miles in.

It was a windy day and I was not looking forward to running against the wind again. Plus I was still sore from the workouts from the weekend. But I now had to do it! I have been telling coworkers that I signed up so I am making sure I don't disappoint. Though sore and not a great time, I surpassed my revised goal of doing a 5K with pains in my shins and did four miles. So there you go! I was happy for the wind now as it helped cool me down, but not after a dinner at the bar at Scoma's.


Just realized the last time I ran, I also wear this Los Lonely Boys shirt. Zipper up by Puma. Earrings by Stella & Dot.
Grilled salmon and fennel.

Monday - Meatless Monday, that is. I didn't have a chance to work out but I did my usual walk to and from work from the Embarcadero Bart station. I had a surprise guest show up at work and I decided to accept their invitation to dinner in Chinatown (Great Eastern Restaurant). I usually meet up with my Instafriend and avoid the commuters going home. I invited her to my friend's bar, Bar 587, but she didn't get back to me in time. It was a successful Meatless Monday. I really wanted that chicken on the Hong Kong style noodles and order the Shrimp Sandwich from The Blue Mermaid. But I kept myself under control.

Kale and romaine caesar salad
What a lovely surprise from Cincinnati, Ohio.  They came to the Argonaut Hotel to say hello!
Iced latte from Caffe Trieste as I was too early for dinner.
Duck, duck, chicken.
