The new adventures…

So you may have noticed the blog name change.. maybe not, depending on how you are reading this post. It came to me slowly yesterday… I spent some time reading my old blog posts, reminiscing on all the things I had done and recorded on that old site, and thinking forward to what might memories I might create with this one. Plus I wasn’t sure how I felt about the website being the same as my username, which was an issue I had back with the old blog. In the midst of my googling, it came to me: The New Adventures of Ari. Let’s see what I can do with it. (Also, lets see how long this name sticks… you know how I roll.) In case you were wondering, the blog address isn’t changing. Too much work, I’m sure. That’s subject to change though, of course.

Anyway, my latest adventure involves losing my driver’s license last night. Grrr. I went out for a run with a friend over at the nearby park and even though I was traveling light (just the iPhone, armband, headphones and car key), I thought I should have my driver’s license with me since I was driving. I should’ve just left it in the car but I slid it into the armband, alongside my iPhone. Before leaving the park, I took out my phone to call my brother and my license must have fallen out too. I’m so annoyed with myself. I went back this morning to see if it was still there but nope, it’s gone. That can’t be good.

The run went well, though it kind of depends on your definition of “well”. Since signing up for my first 5K (btw, have you donated yet? I’m halfway to my goal!), I feel like I need to get on my way to being able to actually run the whole 3.1 miles. The farthest I had ever run was 2.38 miles in about 26 minutes. My goal for yesterday was 2.5 miles but I didn’t make it. I think part of it was because I had never run at this park and had never run with *hills*, so that was a bit new to me. Also, running with someone meant my pace was a bit slower… which was good because I was able to manage my breathing better, but not great because I didn’t run as far as I would’ve liked. I ended up running 2.42 miles in 32 minutes, which shows you how much slower my pace ended up being. Ah well, there’s always tomorrow. I still have 20 more days til the big day… plenty of time, right?

    I thought of a little addendum to your title, but you wouldn’t like it. 🙂
    Don’t forget to smile for the new license photo!
    By the way, it’s great to see posts so often. 🙂

    Going slower will be great for building up your endurance and when you do the full 5K you’ll need that breathing control. Remember to build up… you don’t need an injury before the big day!!!

    Did you call the DMV about your license?

    • That’s true! And yeah, I’ve been trying to keep it easy… actually not really, I ran 2.7 miles yesterday. I’m just ready to get to 3 miles already, so that I know I’m actually ready for the 5k, ya know?

      I went to the DPS yesterday to get my new driver’s license, so now I have a temp one. And a really crappy pic to go with it, lol.
