Friday Photo

I just had to share a pic of my new boots. These were a late Christmas present from Santa, aka my parents, that I got when we went home last week. They are a tapestry fabric with some black and gold beading. Gaudy? perhaps. Fabulous? I think so! I just made sure to wear them with minimal jewelry and neutral makeup to avoid looking like a streetwalker. Sorry about the upside down shot, that was the result of trying to take a pic of them in decent light by myself on my blackberry, and then I was too lazy to flip it.

I saw Bride Wars yesterday after work. I was torn between movie and running (a common dilemma for me). I decided to go to the theater and if a movie was playing, that would be my sign from above that I should choose movie. You may wonder why I would have to choose, why not do both? Well, the movie theater we usually go to serves alcohol. So I would have had a glass of wine, and for some reason I can almost never make myself run if I have had any alcohol, even just a glass. I get to the theater about 4, and the next Bride Wars isn't until 5. Ok, guess I'll go home and run. Oh wait, let me swing by the other movie theater in my town (sort of on the way home) SCORE, Bride Wars is just starting, and NO booze at this theater. I do eat some (ok, all) of an order of nachos single handedly, and chug diet coke instead of wine as I laughed and cried my way through the movie. I'm that wierd girl that is in the theater by herself laughing out loud and smelling of jalapenos. Don't judge. It is a pretty cute movie, and I am big fans of Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway. My favorite scene is the dance off at the bachelorette party, love their moves!

After the movie, it is dark and cold and I'm having the internal battle of do I run? How far? I don't wanna, I don't wanna, just wanna watch DVR'd Oprah and lay on the couch with the dogs. But I put on my big girl panties, or more specifically my big girl running clothes, and headed out. I ran for an hour, and it was actually very nice and enjoyable, so I was glad I made it out. Today is a rest day, then tomorrow is a 12 miler, then a 2 week taper then the Myrtle Half, woohoo!

I think it's awesome that you go to the movies alone, and kudos for getting your run done!

Good luck on your last long run before the half!

A movie theater that sells wine?? I hate going to the movies but if ours sold wine, I'd go!

Alisa said...

Catching up on your blog so I am reading the newest one first, hah. Snazzy boots and that is awesome how the theater has alcohol, even though it didnt this time!

I love those boots!!! And I go see movies by myself, too. We sometimes spend an afternoon at the movies. We'll each see something together, then split up and see separate movies!
