I hope you had a great weekend.
Here's what we were up to...
I woke up to a dreary day. Iced coffee and Morning Joe were on the morning to do list!
The dreariness and lack of plans made me feel blah. It's not like I was dying to have plans, but it's always nice to have something to do.
I ran 6 miles in the rain, then I spent entirely too much time on the internet.
Then it was onto a puzzle.
Later, cards with Paul.
And even later, trying to watch The Keepers on Netflix but we stopped because it was so slow moving.
I went to bed super early so I could get up and run on the AT with my friends Kristen and Anne the next day.
Paul and I met our friends Kristen and Anne for some Appalachian Trail fun! Kristen and Anne were doing 30 miles total (15 miles out, 15 miles back.) Paul and I parked at mile 10. I ran miles 10-20 with Kristen while Paul hiked alone.
It was so fun to catch up with Kristen and babble away. Anne was doing her own thing, but I got to chat with her in the beginning. Anne is my friend I ran my one and only 50 miler with. She is a STRONG runner and a WONDERFUL person. She and I could talk forever. So could me and Kristen. Kristen is also a very strong and determined runner. She is training for a 100 miler! Not her first, of course. She went to the dark side long ago.
After our run/hike, Paul and I went home and cleaned up. Then we had some more outside time because we met my family at Pinchot Park to celebrate Clark's 2nd birthday!
I decided to run a trail race today! It was the Chobot 15k in Birdsboro (Rustic Park). I was pleased with my performance and ran faster than I had planned. I planned to just run relaxed but I got a little annoyed before the race, so I had some energy to burn off. (Recap tomorrow!) I finished in just under 90 minutes. It was mostly single track with 5 creek crossings!
When I got home, I saw that Paul broke out some birthday decorations! I turned 36 years old today!
For dinner we cracked open a bottle of cranberry wine we got in Vermont and ordered junk food from a pizza shop. We ate while watching Seinfeld. Doesn't that sound like the perfect birthday meal!?
I went to bed early because unfortunately as the night wore on, I started to get a headache and a major sore throat. I hope I didn't catch something from that dirty lake on Saturday!
Fun Fact: I woke up in the middle of the night to turn our side porch light on (pictured). When I did, the red balloon popped. Then I realized I didn't finish my blog for this morning, so guess who was typing her final paragraphs at 1:00am? This girl. There may be typos... more than normal. I still feel crappy and am eager to get back to bed, so this is going to be it!
Tell me something fun you did this weekend!
