lunchtime at Trident Booksellers and Cafe ! Hot chocolate and challah grilled cheese. The best!
couldn’t leave without a s’mores milkshake at my favorite restaurant ever!We brought the cupcakes home for my mom because she’s a sucker for cupcakes and ate some of her famous baked mac and cheese for dinner. So good. We had planned to go to the movies but every single movie at the theatre was sold out. Who goes to the movies on NYE? Apparently the whole world. Except us. Then we drove to Portsmouth for First Night but that wasn’t very exciting so we turned around and drove home 30 seconds after we got there. The rest of the night was spent watching movies and finally the ball dropping before we climbed into bed at promptly 12:07am. We woke up nice and refreshed to run the Hangover Classic at Salisbury Beach (after some pancakes, of course. Breakfast of champions, duh)
pre-raceAfter a lot of debate and some advice from Chels , I decided to run for fun. I could have gone out and pounded out a (hopefully) sub 21 minute 5K, but I invited my friend to come spend New Years with me and I didn’t want the pressure that comes with racing. So we did a quick 10 minute warm up, talked for the first two miles of the race at about an 8:30 pace, and I took off for the last mile to finish with a time of 23:40 something (the results aren’t up yet). It was a blast and we won some beer mugs, for milkshakes, since neither of us are drinkers, ironically. Then it was off to ZUMBA straight from the race! I’ve said it before, zumba is my favorite workout activity to do, even more than running when I’m at Caroline’s class. This particular one was INSANE. There were so many people and there were three instructors instead of the usual one. I literally couldn’t stop smiling the whole 75 minutes of class.
I have this weird obsession with being front and center even if it involves shoving people out of the way
Caroline’s on the bottom. She’s amazing.Perfect way to ring in the new year if you ask me. I enjoyed life for the day, accomplishing my goal for 2013 How are you enjoying life?
