We had a sports marathon day yesterday! Thank goodness it turned out to be beautiful weather. My dad treated us to a great Sunday with some great games. First we joined the Miller Lite bus for some lunch and beers for a tailgate party at Dodger stadium. We then headed into the stadium to sit field level and watch the game. We left the game, hopeful that the Dodgers would be able to finish out the last few innings without our cheers, and headed to the Home Depot Center.
Our next stop on our sports marathon day was the Home Depot Center to watch LA Galaxy play Boca Jr. It was my very first soccer game and our seats were right on the field, and included free food and drinks, what a treat! I loved the atmosphere, the chanting, and the game. Although Argentina didn't win, it was a very exciting game! Thanks dad for an amazing Sunday!
Okay... not so special but o so good! Although I still have quite a drive for the next few months, one of the great things about working in Aliso Viejo is living near my sister! She lives right down the road, which means more opportunities to meet for lunch. Today was free In-N-Out day at my work, so Katrina and Ewan headed my way to get their share of the action. Ewan had fun playing in the rocks, while me and Katrina scarfed down our delicious burgers; a whole hour to chat it up! Thanks you two for making my lunch so special :)
I had a great first experience in the OC Marathon! It was such an inspiring environment and I loved being amongst all the dedicated runners. After I had finished the 5K, I realized that I could have kept going, so I decided to count this as the start of my training for the half marathon; 3 miles down, 10.1 more to go! A special thank you to my husband, mom, and little sister Audra for getting up so early to come and support me. It meant a lot to me to have you all there!
