So, the guy from the bar left me a message and it was a little weird. He's a pretty big guy and he used to be a bouncer. He's into working out, told me he was a former professional fighter, and now he owns his own martial arts studio. Anyway, his message to me was, "hi... I'm glad we met the other night... I enjoyed talking with you... you seem to have a beautiful spirit... hope we can get together soon..." Beautiful spirit!?! Who says that!?!?! I was pretty much like, okay not calling you back. But, then I started thinking about it. If I totally blow him off, I am no better than the guys (yes, that is unfortunatly plural) that I've dated that have mysteriously dropped off the face of the earth.
I was debating if I should come out and say that I wasn't interested in seeing him, but I thought again, what do I have to lose? If nothing else, a good story is bound to come out of this. So, I called him back this afternoon. He was still a little weird during our conversation. Due to schedule conflicts, it doesn't look like we're going to be getting together anytime soon. He offered to cancel dinner plans with his dad later this week so we could go out, but I told him he should keep his plans. Oh yeah, it's his birthday that day. He offered for us to go out for his birthday dinner and then if I was up for it, meet up with his best friend and his girlfriend. I'm thinking, no.
Anyway, went to the gym this afternoon (yea for the office being closed). Pounded out three miles (10:30 pace). It wasn't bad, just boring. I didn't do my run outside because I wanted to focus on abs today, too. After my run, I did a series of exercises on the bosu ball. I will have great abs, I will have great abs...
Scale 1-10: 6 stabbing pains on the left.
So, all in all it's been a great day off! Oh, and I've been tracking my friend Katy who is running Boston today! I love how you can track runners while they're out on the course. I'm so excited for her and can't wait to hear all about it! Because, we all know that's about as close to the Boston Marathon as I'm gonna get! :)
