Yesterday, Joseph graduated from law school!
Hehe. He REALLY liked all the picture-taking:
We’re all so proud of you, Joseph!
He had really nice grad-hat-hair afterwards 🙂
And to celebrate, Esther, Joe and I went to Mizu sushi!
I got the bento with chicken terriyaki, salmon nigiri, and salmon sashimi. OMG, it was all so good!
Right after, I filled up the gas tank and took off for Ventura, CA (passed Santa Barbara… around Ojai, CA). It should have taken just under 5 hours, but there was some on-and-off traffic on 101, so it took 5.5 hours.
I. did. not. stop. once.
And you best believe that by the time I got to the expo (30 minutes before they closed!), I had to pee for two minutes straight! It was crazy, but I’m glad I didn’t pee my pants OR miss the bib pick-up. That would have ruined the day.
I ate some of this sweet potato bread from Paris Baguette after the expo:
Then I went to Target to get an ipod shuffle charger (I’ll be using music in the later parts of this race… when I feel like I need a second wind or turbo-boost), and then TJ’s was next door, so I picked up some dinner.
^(BTW, can you tell what I’m watching?………. Running Man!! (Korean show))
Not sure if that was the best thing to eat the night before a marathon… but I got a bunch of bagel thingies and PB, so I hope that will suffice.
Oooh, and check out the room (Best Western Plus, Ventura)!
It’s actually pretty nice for a Best Western (then again, I had to dip into my savings to pay for this room. It better be nice). It’s super convenient because it’s a half mile from the bus pick-ups, as well as the finish line.
K. Weekend’s not over yet. I have to do a few more things today…
… one of them requires me to run 26.2 miles:
I thank God that He blessed me with my thunder thighs. I hope to work them real good this morning and do well in the race today!
Anyone attend a graduation over the weekend?
What is your choice of fuel for a race? (I like GU… but I have to follow it with water).
