running again

believe it or not i am running again.  my goal is to complete a half marathon without struggling and within 2:30.  the past two half marathons (SF Half on Nov 1, 2009 and Macau Half on Dec 6, 2009) i finished at 2:45 and was struggling pretty much the entire time.  this time i am properly training.  i am almost convinced that i can do this.  once i've registered for the Healdsburg Half to happen on Oct 29, 2011 then it's on!  i'm dragging T with me again.  it was a wonderful feeling to finish together at the SF Half.  :)

where does the time go?

2011 has been rough on the "work" front.  i'm so lucky to have such a supportive bf through my 12-hour work days.  he's been cooking dinner almost nightly and even does "personal" shopping for me.  yes, im talking about bath soaps and other toiletry items.

february definitely flew by.  we spent chinese new year with my family and visited his family during his bro's red egg and ginger event.  then what was supposed to be a 3 day weekend turned out to be work at the office.  right now i finally got a free weekend to myself while the bf is at tahoe with the boys.

a friend who i havent seen since sept called me to catch up.  everyone is either getting married, having a baby or buying a house (or all of them!).  she recently bought a house with her bf and i'm sure she'll be engaged in no time.  i am so happy for those celebrating life's wonders.  bf's sis is getting married in oct and im seriously excited for her.  i also have two cousins getting married this year, one in august and another in oct.  we will likely attend the latter due to flight prices.  i am looking forward to it because that means we are visiting another european country, this time greece!

until then, cancun/cozumel in may!

wise insight

a good friend of my said something that was so wise that it deserves a blog all to itself:

"your significant other is someone who helps you grow as a person because he/she tells you all your flaws and imperfections that not even your closest friends have the courage to tell you"

hope all you lovers out there realize this and appreciate each other even more. :)
