That Time I Drank Boba Tea out of a Beer Glass

I took this week off from work to decompress. I wish I could say that I went to an exotic location and sipped on fruity tropical drinks but I didn't. Instead, I used the time to catch up on errands, chores and sleep. Exciting, right? I even took a couple of days off from exercising.

You know what I did do? I drank a ton of boba green tea. Literally.

I also ate a whole lot of shaved fluff ice from various locations.

The Long Beach Half Marathon is exactly one month from today. Where did the time go? I need to start working on my costume ideas for some October races and Halloween!

Finally, due to an upcoming birthday pushing me into a new race age bracket I did some calculations and found out that I did indeed BQ at the Ojai Marathon. So depending on how things go, there is now a slim chance I may get to register for Boston. If it sells out before my turn, I guess I will try again at CIM. I'm still planning to run the heck out of that race but getting into Boston will surely put a pep in my step come December.

boston!! congrats! I'm so jealous. I think I'd need to maintain my pace for 15 more years to qualify :)

CONGRATS on Boston! I was thinking you'd be able to qualify depending on your age come race day. I am soooooo stinkin' happy for you! :-)
