There are two weeks until my half marathon. I’m not really nervous yet. Part of me thinks the idea of running 13 miles at 8 minute pace is ridiculous, and another, hopefully bigger, part of me realizes that it doesn’t really matter. I can go out, and it’ll either go well, or it won’t.
H and I have a chance to really get dressed up this Friday to go to L’s school “gala.” The theme is Night at the Oscars, and it seems a bit like prom for grownups. I dug the one full-length formal dress I own out of the back of my closet. I’ve been hanging onto it for years and years and thought of getting rid of it many times. The last time I wore it was in undergrad! However, I’m glad I didn’t, because it was a beautiful dress 18 years ago when I bought it, and it’s still beautiful. The wearer has, ahem, faded a bit and is a little worse for the wear, but it still fits. I even noticed that all the push-ups I did built a little muscle in my back, which you can kind of see.
However, since I never get out, I literally own one pair of earrings, no formal shoes of any kind whatsoever, and only one purse, which I wear to work every day. I’m planning to wear the earrings, and hopefully I can find some ultra-cheap clutch on Amazon prime tomorrow, and I decided to splurge on a pair of black pumps, since I figure they’d probably come in handy. Pictures to come!
