I don’t even know where to begin. The last two days have been a complete and utter blur. In a good way! I have so many things to share I don’t even know where to start! Let me go in sequential order. It’s the only way I’ll be able to remember everything.
So let’s start with Saturday morning. I had my last long run before my first 1/2 marathon next weekend. Let me tell you, last week I ran 9 miles and I was on top of the world. I was in the right mindset. It was fun, easy even. Well the 10 totally kicked my A$$! Seriously I thought I was going to die. See that big dip on the 8 miles mark?
yeah… that was me stopping at a subway and begging for a glass of water. I just needed a break and I knew if I ran the last 2 without a bit of hydration I was going to be in trouble. So I stopped, took a break and had some water. It refreshed me for a bit but I have to say that last mile was HORRIBLE. It just would NOT end!
After the run I came home and relaxed a bit. Hung out with the husband and toddler. We worked on the yard (well the the husband did, I just sorta watched lol) and spruced up our driveway with sidewalk chalk while reviewing letters and numbers with the toddler. I love play/learning time. ;~P
For dinner on such a beautiful saturday, I went for a family favorite, Beer Can Chicken. Not to pat myself on the back or anything but it came out PERFECT! The husband pretty much ate the whole thing minus the breast and thigh the toddler and I split. We paired it with a baked sweet potato and corn on the cob. It was a great summer meal!
After dinner we took the toddler to a small town carnival and he had a blast! We all did. Ridin’ rides, playing games, tasting each others snow cones, who can ask for anything more?
Unbelievably, today was more of the same.
Kath was headed out on a cruise from Baltimore and it was great to catch up with her again. We kept a great pace and it was fun running in a group for a change.
Again I came home and relaxed a bit before preparing for the week. I had a fabulous brunch with the husband, making eggs and bacon (for him) with whole wheat English muffins and toast. Then I tried to take a nap but the toddler wasn’t having it. It’s official he’s out of the napping age. DAMN IT! :)
So we hung out and made an early dinner on the grill. I invented a fabulous new turkey burger and I can’t wait to make it again measuring and snapping photos for GreenLiteBites. After dinner the husband snuck in a game of golf and I took the toddler the park meeting up with Carrie and family again. We walked to a creek and just hung out with the little ones. It was nice.
Now? Well now I’m beat. Really. And unbelievably tomorrow promises to be just as crazy fun! The toddlers sports class, a day at a local pool and a meeting with our real estate agent.
Until tomorrow.. ‘Night!
