May is shaping up to be a fun month! I am still broke as shit, but there are some cool activities going on in the area, and that I got tickets to awhile ago. Next weekend the Amgen Tour of California starts in Long Beach, which is about 30-45 minutes from where I live, so I figure I have to go watch! For those of you who didn’t grow up with a cyclist for a dad, and watched all the Tour’s every year, the Tour of California is America’s premier cycling event, it’s not as big as the Tour de France, but it is in that same wave length.
This month, I also have tickets for Hamilton that I bought a few months ago, and I am so excited! Everything I have heard is that the show is incredible, so I can’t wait to go see it. May is also my dad’s birthday, which is always on Memorial Day, so we are competing in a relay duathlon. Speaking of which, last week I was really bad. On the 29th I went for a 4 mile run, and then let life get in my way and didn’t run the rest of the week.
So today I went for a 1.5 mile run before work, and it was a little hard, but I also suck at running when the sun is overhead because I get overheated really easily. So I’m going to make the conscious effort to get up a bit earlier so that I can go for runs a bit earlier in the day and still get them in before my closing shift at work. I have really been loving my runs recently though, so I think that I am going to try and get ready for either the Rock n’ Roll Half Marathon, or Long Beach Marathon in October.
Have any of you run in the Rock n’ Roll Half? Is it fun? Let me know, I’m curious!
