So, the rest of yesterday was weird. After the race, we went to the tri store and bought a bunch of stuff. I got some new Saucony running shoes and Ceecee got a pink cycling Jersey and some accessories. Then we went to my Dad’s birthday. I’m really glad Ceecee is still considering my parents to be family. It almost felt normal while we were over there. They don’t know anything about the problems we’re having and considering my track record of failed marriages and relationships, I can’t see telling them.

The sushi party was for the birthday of the wife of one of the teachers at the school where we work. It was mostly younger people there, but we hung out and ate and drank and had a good time. Seth, the guy whose house we were at, plays guitar in a band and he was singing some songs as the evening went on. They kept bringing out shots of tequila and I don’t like liquor, so I wasn’t really drinking them, but Ceecee kept taking shots and I figured she must be feeling them. She came and kind of sat on my lap while they were singing and I held her a little bit and caressed her back.

When we left, I tried to kiss her in the car and she turned away again. I couldn’t believe it. I thought that as much fun as we had and as close as we seemed that last night was the night for sure. It wasn’t. We drove home in a kind of awkwardness and I just don’t know what to do. I just don’t.

It was my Dad’s 80th birthday yesterday and we are going to his and my Mom’s house this afternoon to celebrate. We also got invited to a sushi party by some friends from work and we’re going to that later tonight, so this is getting to be a really full day. Could turn out to be a good one. I still think Ceecee and I are really close to breaking through and putting this all behind us, so maybe tonight.

This morning, we ran our races and Ceecee got second place in the medical mile! I was so excited and proud of her. She didn’t even know she had placed until the announcer called out her name. She was 8th overall and second in her age group. She got a silver medal and I got a picture of her with this huge grin plastered all over her face.

I ran my first 5K and missed my goal by one second. If I had been experienced and known what I was doing, I could have made it, but as I was running to the finish line, I didn’t even look at the clock to see what the time was. Anyway, I got 30:01 and for my first race ever, it wasn’t bad. Hope the rest of the day is a success!
