Well, this weekend FLEW by. Nothing new is going on this week. It's just the same old, same old at work. Here's what we were up to this weekend!
This was a very special day because it was Chrissy's birthday! As soon as I got up, I gave him lots of kisses and told him what a big boy he is and how much I love him.
Work was fun! I had a 4th grade student earn her Black Belt in Recorder Karate, the 3rd graders sang from a Verdi opera, and 1st grade watched Elvis perform Jailhouse Rock. I am lucky I get to teach such a fun subject!
That afternoon, we had a family get together to celebrate my mom's birthday!
When I got home, Paul and I laid out our race day outfits.
Paul chose a loose fitting top to enable full range of motion when clapping.
Haha Flat Paul's shoes are on the wrong feet!
Race Day! My dad and I ran the Capitol 10-miler. If you want the long version, you can read my race recap. The short version is I ran 1:13:35, which was 65 seconds slower than what I wanted. I won't cry about it. I managed to be the 10th woman and 2nd in my AG. Dad ran a 1:19 and averaged sub 8 minute miles and got 4th in his AG! Lots of friends and family came out to cheer the runners on! I'm not worthy.
My stomach was definitely weird for the rest of the day. I was hungry but there was nothing I really wanted to eat. It sucked because I love running hard, getting really hungry, and then eating ALL THE FOOD. It's weird being hungry but not wanting to eat. I was up past 3am. Oh boy, why did I do that?
Christmas slept under my arm all. night. long. It was sweet, but not that comfortable, so I can't say I slept very well! My quads were sore and there were 50mph winds so obviously I wasn't going to run today! I also did not feel like lifting, so it was a lazy rest day or me! Sometimes I feel guilty/fat/lethargic when I have a lazy, lay around day, but for some reason, I didn't have any of those feelings today. I just enjoyed it!
How was your weekend!?
