Good Monday! Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. Before we dive in, don't forget to enter for your chance to a win a pair of Tommie Copper sleeves of your choice! You have 3 days left!! Check it out here.
My weekend had a little bit of this:
And unfortunately a little bit of that:
Which led to watching a lot of this:
On Saturday morning I met my running friend for her long run: 10 miles. We ran our first half marathons together more than a year ago, then she got bogged down by an injury. In 3 weeks, she'll be running her first half since then (SO proud of her!). I had no idea what I would feel like 6 days post-marathon (which I'm now going to refer to as my 26.2 crapathon), so I laced up and hoped for the best.
And... it went surprisingly well! We followed a 5:1 ratio of running to walking and I don't think we could have come out with more even splits! We started from a running store in one city, ran 5 miles to another city and grabbed some water at the local coffee house (they're very runner friendly), then headed back (and schmoozed it up with the running store folk). All in all it took us 1 hour and 50 minutes. I consider that a win! (and it was really cool to run through the city, versus the cow fields I usually run through).
That evening I decided to get gourmet and fixed an already-prepared crab stuffed salmon "pinwheel" from the grocery store. I think it might have been bad because it did NOT sit well with me. I was up all night with an upset tummy, popping Tums like candy (yes, I said "popping" not "pooping").
Since I couldn't fall asleep, David and I stayed up and watched season 2 of "Worst Cooks in America." LOVE that show! And I love Chef Ann. And I love the Food Network because... I love food (see the above paragraph).
By the next day I was feeling a little better so we leashed up the
monsters dogs to go to the dog park. Want to know something cute? Max found another Collie at the park and latched on to her, thinking she was Jake, my parent's Collie.

But hey, there's some resemblance here, right? Give him a break, he's half-blind.

Anything exciting happen over the weekend for you?
