OK - so I've confirmed that gin is not the secret to a great run. Last night I was out on the town with some friends that I hadn't seen in awhile - we all used to work together and formed this sort of secret management drinking group to blow off some steam. I still have fond memories of the first night we hung out - it started at our usual downtown watering hole, we met up with a bunch of people we worked with and somehow ended up chasing cute auditors all over town until 3am. Good times! Anyways I know that I would have probably gone postal if I hadn't had these guys around - so it was awesome to see them. It'd been awhile, so we were definitely indulging in good food and drink and I was feeling pretty glow-y by the end of the night. Downtown was rocking last night - Canada is celebrating its 100 anniversary of its navy, so there were 8000 navy boys from Japan, Australia, the US....boooyah!
I got home around 10-ish and made sure I hydrated to avoid any hangover type situation. We had to be running by 7am to fit our run in so I had a bit of a headache but overall felt not bad. My run was not great today though - not bad, but not great..I was really tired by the end and had to really push to keep going. So tired I forgot to turn off my Garmin so my results are all messed up, boo hoo. However, what WAS great about the run was the spectacular day we're having - gorgeous blue skies! We ran by the water, and ended up running on the breakwater to get a better look at the ships that were in - totally cool. Victoria is really such a gorgeous city - I'm soooooo thankful to live here.
