Updates of all kinds

First off, you all convinced me that I should definitely enter the soccer contest....so I did.

You had to submit a picture (I used the one below) and answer a bunch of questions like if you prefer cats or dogs (dogs), what your favorite books is (To Kill a Mockingbird) and what your hobbies are (training for marathons, rec league soccer, tennis and reading). I felt like I was on some ridiculous dating game show, but if nothing else it's good for a laugh and maybe I'll get some free D.C. United tickets.

Picture I used for the contest.

In other news, I ran 4 miles last night in 41:38. I went out at around 7 p.m. and although the temps had definitely dropped, it was still warm. There was a pretty strong wind at points and lots of hills, but I felt good for the most part. My legs were definitely tired at the end though. I stretched out and relaxed afterward, and this morning I made an appointment for a sports massage on Thursday evening because I got a $10 off thingy in the mail for my birthday.

My weekend was awesome. I was in six cities and three states in three days. Soccer unfortunately pulled blew their lead late in the game and lost 2-1. Good thing it was still preseason.

I got to see my friends' new condo in Crofton. They have a super comfortable sofa, great for sleeping on. I went to see another friend coach his high school soccer team's game on Saturday afternoon and then headed to Arlington Saturday night to see my three other friends' new apartment.

Saturday night we went out to Mr. Smith's, a piano bar in Georgetown, and then Sunday I came home, had two friends visit for a few hours and then played tennis that night with another friend.

I was definitely busy, seeing tons of friends (and their new apartments) and watching/playing lots of sports.
