What a weekend!! We’re wrapping it up feeling exhausted, and sunburned, but it was a great weekend.
We started strong with new coffee adventures. (To be continued tomorrow!)
Brandon and I really wanted it to be nice outside Saturday, despite the weather report.
I was rocking my new, tiny, shirt that I won as a price in the 5k. Run fast, get free stuff!!
So we headed out to the beltline, our favorite weekend running destination. The plan was a 3 miler; Brandon hasn’t been running much lately and was nervous about even a simple 5k. We ended up at the end of the trail, and ran a little way off the trail to adventure around a part of the city we don’t see very often…. And then the bottom dropped out. We were caught in a “coming down in sheets” downpour. Panic set in, we went into “protect-the-Garmin-and-sprint-to-the-nearest-bridge” mode. And seriously, that 1 mile that we sprinted in the pouring ran was the most fun I have had running in years. I ran with my hands out, laughing and screaming. We felt so silly, and hung out under the bridge for another 5ish minutes for the rain to slow before we jogged back to the car on a light drizzle.
We enjoyed a leisurely afternoon yesterday, got a little cleaning done, and had a game night with friends- a perfect ending to a stormy Saturday.
Sunday = the opposite.
I started this morning with a 3 mile run on the beltline with a friend. She has a much slower pace than I do- we ran ~10 min miles. I called it cross training, and really enjoyed myself, not to mention it was a beautiful morning. As soon as I got home, Brandon asked if I wanted to go back to the beltline. So after a quick lunch, we grabbed rollerblades and his skateboard and went out for an adventure. We were literally at the park for 4 hours, mostly relaxing with friends, playing frisbee and croquet. I forgot my sunscreen…. huge regret. But otherwise, perfect weather, relaxation, park with fiends… That is my kind of a Sunday.
And to finish the weekend off, Brandon and I celebrate our monthiversary. We were married on June 30, 2012, and enjoyed a perfect honeymoon in Mexico. So on the 30th of every month since, we have had a Mexican date night.
And on that note… Lets wrap it up with last weeks workouts!

I’ve been missing our neighborhood walks this week. We have both been so busy with work, but we need to get back out there. I would also love to go for a swim this week. It’s so hard for me to get into a routine of going to the pool. At least I went to the gym early one day this week, so that is a step in the right direction! I’m so excited to be back into push ups etc. Here’s to hoping I keep that up!
Goals for this week: enjoy the weather. Stay outside as much as possible. Don’t get sunburned.
