6:15 AM: Jackie Warner’s Xtreme Workout – COMPLETED
After work yesterday, I headed over to my MIL’s house to scoop up Lili. The kids were all there, so I chatted with them before heading out. I was having dinner with the girls at this Authentic Mexican restaurant. I left close quarter to 5 and got there earlier than I had anticipated, so Lili and I hung around for a bit.
The girls came just in time and we all sat and caught up. It was weird being in regular clothes with our hair did and make-up. We’re so used to seeing each other in our running gear, hair in a pony tail and sweat dripping everywhere. Nice change and we promised we’d do this more often. I think the next time we’ll have to do it at someone’s house though because Ava and Lili didn’t really get to play much! The food was excellent. I ended up eating half my dish and then giving Pedro the other half.
We caught up on non-running matters and then Emma and I tried to iron out our running plans tomorrow. We’re either running first thing in the morning OR at 3 in the afternoon. We both prefer earlier, but we’ll see how that goes. Sunday I am running with my sister, so my running plans are all set. Phew. Saturday I have to take a class at a college nearby. Thankfully it ends at 1pm. Then at 2pm, Lili and I have a first birthday party to attend. So exciting.
I had fun dressing Lili this morning.
And I had time to my hair.
I remember running into my girlfriend at the supermarket. She was this girl I used to run with for months, but before that we met in this running in the pool class. Anyhow, we were both food shopping and she called out my name. I swear, I drew a blank. In my head I thought, “Who is this woman???” I could NOT remember. Also, we hadn’t ran together in a few months… Then it dawned on me. Do you ever not recognize someone in street clothes when you always see them in workout clothes? I know, that’s so awful of me, but again, I didn’t go out with her outside of running and we were only friends for a year total. Since she went back for her PhD we both stopped running together. I miss her dearly. I still send her birthday cards every year. I stopped hearing from her though after I had the baby. I’m sure we’ll meet again.
