30 Weeks, 2 days

The Fanconi Valentines 5k was this Sunday downtown at the waterfront. I found a cheap pink tee-shirt on clearance and sewed a red felt heart on the belly to sport at the run.

It was awesome! It was a bit cold in the morning and I was only in a thermal and the crafted tee-shirt but once I got warmed up, it was perfect! I felt really good and went ahead to run the first mile with my friends. I slowed to a walking pace at that point only because I didn't want to push myself too much. Scarlet ran ten miles on Saturday so she hung back with me and we took turns walking and jogging the rest of the route. I also got a bunch of comments on the shirt!

Afterwards, we all went out for coffee (decaf for me ;)) and chatted for a while. At the run, someone handed us fliers to a free yoga class up in the pearl that started at 11. We all decided to truck over there and check it out. It was a lot of fun except the instructor was what I call a "boot camp" yoga instructor. I don't think I'd take another class from him because it was too, what can I see, personal trainer- like? I just felt like it was way too fast moving for an effective yoga class. I'm sure it'd be great for strength training and endurance but it just wasn't my bag. It was fun though.

We found ourselves starving after the high-intensity yoga class and all headed out to Henry's for lunch. I downed a ton of bread, a green salad, and a small pizza in one go. I figured I had earned it! Here are the four of us prior to the run:

On Saturday night, Cory, Dave, and I all went to see Conan the Barbarian at the Laurelhurst. As many of you may know, I am a sucker for really bad 20-year-old action flicks. This movie is probably one of the best ones out there. I mean, the historical portrayal is spot-on and we get a snapshot of Conan's (Arnold's) childhood relationship with his father, which really allows the movie-goer to sympathise with Conan's plight. It is fantastic.
