Yesterday, I woke up at 5:30am, planning to hit the road just before 7 for a 12 mile run. Unfortunately, Shoo woke up at 6:00am and took a while to get back to sleep. By the time I was free to go, it was close to 7:00am and I still hadn’t had my coffee. And I can’t run without my coffee.
Since it was Jones’ birthday, I decided that I had too much else going on in the day and moved my long run to Monday. We took the boys to a local “farm day” where they got to do a petting zoo, ride some ponies, and go on a hayride. After a yummy lunch, we headed back to our house, where Jones was met by 8 of his closest friends. A few fishing games, a lot of running around, and a starfish cake later, I was done. LOL I was too tired to even have a beer after the party and, let me tell you, I really needed one.
Today, I went out for a nice four miler. The weather here is GORGEOUS and it felt awesome. I finished in 38 minutes, which was pretty fast, considering I hit every.single.light on red. Then I took the boys to the park for two hours. Tonight we’ll go out for Jones’ birthday celebration since we were just too beat last night.
(And totally unrelated to Jones’ birthday, I can’t wait to hear how Marcy rocked her race!)
