It's Good to be Alive

Apparently another year hasn't slowed me down. Went for my traditional birthday run...yes, today I turn another year older...I wasn't sure if I would mention it or not, but hey, it's out there and so far it's been pretty good. I ran 10 miles and averaged an 8:19 pace! That was after going to bed at 2:30 after being at the show (picture in post from earlier and more a tthe end of this post) having had 6 beers (but in 6 hours, that's light actually, no drunken debauchery last night!) and I did have a birthday shot bought by my friend, but then the guys we were by when she bought it bought me one as well. We were then discussing GB, who they were fans of as well, and one of them used to live by his former violinist. We were up front and I caught Brian's (lead singer) eye when I was singing along to one of their songs (he always notices people singing and loves it) and then during "Come and Get Your Love" (their rendition) he danced with me and when I told him it was my birthday he wished me a happy birthday and after the show came and talked to me and posed for pics. He's such a nice guy and the music is awesome. I might be a little biased though.

In a bit I'm going to meet my mom and sister for lunch at my favorite Italian place then we are going to enjoy the gorgeous weather with a walk around the lakes, some shopping at a few places and whatever else I want to do, then later grilling with friends and family, out to my favorite watering hole and possibly to a few other places...tomorrow will be a recovery day (both from running AND from today!!) and I'm well on my way to mileage rebuild and I ran in new shoes today. It's definitely the 11s that will be my marathon shoe (I have a new pair of my shoe in model 10 and 11 and 11 is best). Anyway, more reports tomorrow time to go enjoy my gorgeous, gorgeous weather (smelled flowers and fresh cut grass today!).


Isn't he hot??



And don't we make a good match?? Too bad he's married...sigh...

Happy Birthday Dani! Looks like you're keeping up pretty good with your running. I'd have to say that I like the sound of GB Leighton. Never heard of them, but if they came to my area, I'd go see them. They sound good.
