Yesterday I ran the 8k. There are pictures all over facebook, but for those of you who aren't over there, here are the before and after group shots.
we even started, I fell and skinned my knees. I didn't fall again
throughout the 8k, so I guess I was just getting it out of the way.
did finish just barely in the 2 hours allotted, but my time was closer
to 1:45. We were queuing to run 15 minutes into the started clock, and
they had us in the last corral. I walked for the majority of it, ran
maybe a full mile, not all at once.
My co-workers ran for most
of it, or walked at a much quicker pace. I kept pace with them for 3/4
of a mile before I fell back, needing my inhaler. When I reached the 2
mile point I ran for a half mile or so, to catch up with the nearest
group of people, and kept pace with a couple of them until the finish
At mile 3 or so it started raining in earnest, and the
temperature dropped about 5 degrees. At the finish line I was soaked,
the wind was blowing pretty hard, and there was a cross breeze off the
ocean. I wanted desperately to get somewhere warm and dry, but that
didn't happen until we left about an hour after. One of my co-workers
had her son running in the Operation Smile Final Mile, and we had to
wait for him to finish before we all left.
Today I am sore, but I
feel really good. My knees are tight and tender, but it's the bruising
and the muscles rather than the abrasions. My ankles and thighs are also
stiff and tight. I stretched really well before the 8k but it's still
way more walking/running than I do in an average day.
doll news, I sat down and did the eye opening on the Fairyland Littlefee
Vampire Rolly faceplate I purchased. I want to say this was an event
faceplate but I'm not sure when exactly it was made.
I took before, during, and complete photos.
liked the look before I opened them further, but I couldn't get ANY
pair of eyes to set the way I wanted them to, so I opened them just a
bit more. I was trying to get a shape similar to what Starshine has, so I
used him for reference, since his lower lid was already the same shape.
I've never done any mods an any of my dolls before so I was a
bit nervous, but I'm pleased with how it turned out. This faceplate will
become my little water dragon Innes. I now need a normal-skin Littlefee
body for him. He will also be getting some horns and such, but I
haven't pinned down exactly how I want to do those yet.
I hope everyone has had a nice weekend!
