Today I went shopping for clothes. It was the first time I’ve gone shopping since I went with Emily, Corinna, Dasha, and Steve (do you see the anomaly in that group?) in Trujillo last year. I got 6 shirts, 2 pairs of pants and a dress all for $47. I did not get what I went in for, which was a black skirt. I pretty much hate clothes shopping. I always have always hated it, but its done and I shouldn’t have to do it again until fall.
I have signed up for Running Racig’s virtual mile. The rules are pretty simple. I have the entire month of July to run it. It has to be run outside, I have to take a picture of me wearing the virtual mile racing bib, and I have to be honest about my time. Since I am currently clocking in at just under 15min/mile, I probably won’t send in my time until closer to the end of the month–just so it won’t be completely embarrassing. I have decide that the Lake Rabon triathlon will be my first. I just don’t think I’ll be ready for the one on July 17, and I really only had 2 goals: to finish and to not be last. But if I do finish last, at least I finish. This one is on August 13. The swim is 300 yards, the bike is 12.8 miles, and the run is 3.1 miles. I guess they have something against using the metric system–otherwise it would be 275m, 20k, and 5k.
On a different note, I finally ordered some of my photos from my South America trip. These will go in the frames that I have hanging photo-less on the wall. I hope to be settled in soon. After all, I’ve been here 3 months…I should be unpacked and decorated by now.
