Everything this weekend was perfect. It was everything I could have wanted it to be and more. 🙂 I am so grateful to have amazing people in my life, each and every day – in every capacity.
Friday night my boyfriend and I started our weekend with some lovely half price sushi. It wasn’t the best, but for half off, it was darn good and you’ll never see me complain about anything cheap.
Saturday morning began with another 10 mile run with some fabulous people who work in my office building. We are all in a club together in the building and they are training for the Chicago Marathon as well as the Marine Corps marathon (each is training for one). When they asked me to run last weekend, I was excited and nervous, and when I was invited back again this weekend, I was thrilled! It’s the best running with people – time goes by SO SO fast and it’s really the most fun way to conquer a long run.
The road ended during our route so we had to think quickly on our feet.
Photo opp! I told them I’m a blogger so they were sweet and kind enough to oblige to my ridiculous photo requests.
I might add, too, that I am in LOVE with my CamelBak back pack. It is amazing and perfect for this ridiculous southern heat.
I also got some new shoes. I’m sorry, Sarah at Picky Runner, I hope we can still be friends after I say it – but I really did not like the Mizuno Wave Riders I had. I think they messed up my stride and encouraged what I think are now shin splints. Not too happy about that, considering they were pricey. So, I did what anyone would do and I bought another pair of shoes. 🙂 I got Brooks Pure Cadence shoes, version 1. They have a second one out, but these ones were a steal (under $60 for nice running shoes?! yaa yaa!).
After a successful 10 miles, I met up with some girlies to do our nails.
Woo! Saturday night consisted of a birthday party + me baking box goodies. Yum.
Red velvet cupcakes + cream cheese frosting? Yum.
Plus some chocolate brownies + chocolate frosting. Great dinner, no?
And yesterday was more perfection. My bestie, Mollie, has been out of town in Israel and is FINALLY back! WOO HOO! My running pal has returned, and with some mighty fine new kicks! 🙂 Those Asics are rocking!
It was a beautiful day in the park and we had so much fun enjoying the run and simultaneously cursing the sun and humidity.
The rest of the day was spent lounging by the pool and engaging in numerous shenanigans with my co-blogger/bestie/roomie.
She was less than amused, I think. What do you guys think?
Haha. Weekend perfection. 🙂 🙂 🙂
How was your weekend? Any good sunshine?
What kinds of good eats did you get this weekend?
Are you a solo runner or a buddy runner? I am both, and both make me happy, but sometimes, running with friends is just so much better.
