Last night Adam and I had a blast at the Miami Heat game! Since we were there as a guest of a client we had awesome seats in the club/suite level and we got VIP parking.
We pulled into the garage and someone came over and showed us to a special spot to park, and then led us to a special elevator that took us directly to the suites. We didn’t have to walk through the crowds of regular people with their regular tickets because obviously (for one night only) we were that fancy.
We also saw the elevator reserved for celebrities – ohhhh! It was right next to our elevator, haha. Adam said, “tonight we don’t have to be near the people with regular tickets and the celebrities don’t have to be near us. What a world!” 😀
I did bump into Alonzo Mourning right outside of the bathrooms which was cool. Zo played for the HEAT his entire career, helped us win a championship in 2006 and was also on the USA Men’s basketball team at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney. No big deal running into him or anything. I played it totally cool and just said “hi Zo.” He said hi back so we’re practically best friends now.
The Heat won pretty big against the Lakers, so all-in-all a great game. I was a little bummed that Kobe didn’t play since I’ve ever never seen him live and this will be his last year in the NBA. At least I can say I was in the same room as him. I hope some of the air Kobe breathed out floated up to me and I breathed it in. I could use some of his drive and determination for future races!
Adam and I got home late to a cat that was outraged we would dare to leave him alone for so long without dinner. I promise you he didn’t starve to death, even though he was acting like he was on the verge of it.
I was supposed to run yesterday but I didn’t. I’m not too worried about it since I have the Fort Lauderdale half this weekend. Even though I’m not racing it and definitely do not need to taper… I’m just going to use it as an excuse.
Life is supposed to be about balance, right? I’ll definitely get in a run today – really looking forward to it!
