Check out this package

Get your mind out of the gutter. I meant this:

berkeley half marathon

That’s right kids! My bib and d-tag came in the mail!! I was jumping around like a kid on Christmas.

I’m running the Berkeley Half with my BFF (who ran the San Jose RNR with me) and some friends from work. You bet your butt I was asking around on Friday if people got their bibs yet!

Friday at work was also our November social. It was actually called MOVEMBER social in honor of men’s health. It was really cute because the bar tenders were wearing fake mustaches, and so were their beverages.

Friday evening, Kyle took us to Pyramid Brewery for dinner. We’ve been to the actual brewery in Berkeley and went on a tour. But this time we just went to the restaurant and bar in Walnut Creek.

And now I’m off to go run my last long run before my half marathon on the 24th! And then let the tapering begin (aka stay the hell away from cranky-pants Amy).

After my run, I’ll meet up with Kyle for our Saturday morning bagels, and then we have a movie date ๐Ÿ™‚

My company does a movie night once a year, where they buy out 1 screening room at a theatre and sell the tickets at a cheap price ($4 for employees, $6 for guests). AND actually this year we were also given a $5 voucher, so it really only cost me $5 for 2 people. Kind of unheard of these days.

This year is Thor 2!

Have a happy Saturday!

Have you ever participated in no-shave-November? Ladies, this question can be for you too. Hey if the men can do it, why can’t we? ๐Ÿ˜‰

What’s the cheapest you were able to see a movie recently?

  1. The last movie we saw must have been $50 for both of our tickets – IMAX 3D. Terrible prices! Of course we bought a diet soda, too. The cheapest we typically pay must be around $10 a ticket but we don’t go see movies very often. Enjoy Thor 2!

  2. Oh I remember (10) years ago, it was ยฃ3.20 / $5.16 for a ticket. I’m sure the last ones were over ยฃ10 / $16 for two . I saw a 3D film (Despicable Me) it was my first 3d film, cost a fortune! Luckily we don’t make it a weekly thing.

    My fiancรฉ is raising money for Movember this year. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Good luck for your half marathon!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I also enjoy telling people to check out my package.
    So no expo? Or just no bib retrieval at the expo? That would cut down the hassle for sure!
    I used to work in a movie theater, so all the free movies I wanted! I also hosted a movie review show, again, free movies!
    Did you puke?

    1. HAHAHA you would…

      It didn’t sound like there was an expo when I registered (it just said packet pickup at 2 locations). I decided it wasn’t worth it (even if there was an expo) because it was cheaper to just have it shipped to my house than drive and find parking.

      And ugh! So jealous! My cousin worked at a movie theatre this past summer and got to do the same! I did NOT puke! Aren’t you proud of me?
