4 hours is all I had to spend in Seattle. After a 13 hour flight, I was to be home for 4 hours before needing to get to the airport so that I could travel down to California and be in my office today. Well, somewhere between doing laundry, where I took out my license from a pair of pants I had shoved it in to prove that the name on my credit card was really me (this was so that I could pay for a paragliding “flight” that never happened) to a dinner at a burger place I lost my license. Which resulted in major panic and then a breakdown.
Good news is that it forced me to go to the DMV and get my name changed. I’d already had it changed on my passport but haven’t changed it anywhere else. While I’m bummed I had to cancel my work trip for this week, it now means that I get to work from home and see my husband for a couple more days. Also, new photo on my license!
Which is good because I didn’t like my last one. Unbelievably, this is a big improvement. So this is the reason why, again, my latest posts have been lacking. I can’t wait to go to crossfit tonight to blow off some steam, and I’ve got a 15 miler planned for Sunday with a good friend. My running has been majorly lacking recently and I’m getting nervous about the marathon because:
Yep, 12 weeks until CIM. I have a base so I’m not too too worried, but running in France was much more difficult than I thought it would be and I was pretty beat up after Hood to Coast. I went to my Physical Therapist Monday after the race and she literally said “You demolished your calves” and had me take three entire days off, and after that told me to not run any hills for at least a week. yeep. It doesn’t stop me from being disappointed about what I can do though. My five miler for Laura’s virtual 5 mile race was slower than I would normally run.
Luckily it was beautiful and John got some really great photos of me running it. I’m also going to blame altitude, my legs felt super heavy and it was hard for me to catch my breath. But I will stop complaining and making excuses about an okay run in a beautiful town in the valley of the Alps.
Many more updates to come, just taking time for me to adjust and get back into regular life.
Have you ever lost your license? How big of a hassle was it? It kind of sent me over the edge, thank goodness for an understanding husband.
