On Friday my mate asked if I’d like to join him for Bay to Breakers. Registration was closed so I told him I could register at the expo on Saturday.
He checked to make sure he had his registration done and found out he was actually not registered, so we decided to go to the Expo together to register.
He picked me up at my place and we go to the Expo and registered, then we had brunch at a local greasy spoon and chatted.
Then we went to my place to get some overnight stuff, and back to my mate’s place where he tried to get some work done but couldn’t because I was too distracting.
On Sunday morning we got up at 5:30a to get ready for Bay to Breakers. We had a quick breakfast and loaded up his truck with our fursuits, then headed out to find parking. Fortunately we found a parking spot, although it was about a mile from the start. He asked if I thought we should look for a spot closer, but I suggested that if we did that we might miss the spot we had found, so we took it.
We got suited up and walked over to the start point, watching all the early runners stream by. We walked past the start because we missed it and then backtracked a block to the start. We met Shawkagh there and began to walk the route.
Zarafa and Shawkagh asked me and Spotti if we wanted to have dinner, but we declined because we were both pretty tired and wanted to go home and rest. Shawkagh and her mom gave us a ride back to Spotti’s truck (after we walked another mile around the park, which had a fence up around it seemingly for no reason). We went home and had a nice relaxing shower, then we got some food, and had a long cuddly nap.
Later we got up and had dinner with Spotti’s mom-in-law and his older son, then we just chilled for a bit before going to bed.
This morning Spotti made breakfast for me and gave me ride home.
There was so much fun and so much excitement over the weekend. I was delighted to share all those things with my my mate. He’s very supportive and caring, and I feel special and loved.
I am pleased to be back in my home town and at work this morning with my co-workers, with whom I really enjoy working. Tonight will be nice too because I can relax at home.
I’m very happy today.
