This weekend started off with some solid adulting on mine and Meghan’s part when we stood on unstable stools and tried to replace the light bulbs in our fan. We got to take a trip to this place. .
Kidding. . our Home Depot does not look like that, it’s just orange and smelly. But they did have a cool aisle like this Bob the Builder one and we got the job done looking like pros.
Since my heel has been hurting more and more I decided to skip this weeks runs and get my zen on in hot yoga instead. Initially I had to con Laura into going with me but after her first class she was hooked, aside from the whole ‘being hot part’. I don’t think there’s anything they can do about that, it’s kind of in the name. . .
So instead of doing my long run on Saturday, I slept in and then Deanne and I met and hung out with kiddos at Bell Elementary and made signs for our Team LUNGevity runners. Below are a few of my favorites. . .
And I particularly like the one that says “I hope you win”. Me too. . .
Then later we snuggled up and those goons went out while I stayed in like an old lady and slept.
For the past couple of months Laura’s been trying to convince us to go to Mad River to watch a game with her so Monday night we gave in and all of us eagle bombed our way through their loss. If you’ve never had an eagle bomb, congrats, you’re smart and not missing out. It basically tastes like vodka, redbull and regret and while Laura will dispute this, just because they’re free, doesn’t make them a good idea. The waitress was so super nice so I won’t hold a grudge that she forgot the whiz on my cheese steak but seemed to keep the eagle bombs flowing. . .however if I ever go back to that place, it’s water and beer only.
On the bright side I won my first week of fantasy football, no thanks to my own doing of course. But I consider my ability to call on friends, family and random gentlemen on the street to help manage my team a skill.
And with 26 days to go to the marathon I am slightly nervous about the whole running part (a minor thing I know). I have a 20 miler in Philly, 12 miles on the lakefront, 8 in Breese (8 miles of cow. . .) and then it’s marathon time. Not to mention all of the pre-marathon activities we have planned like movie night, yoga and pasta party the week before! So I am in it to win it for this one (okay in it to come in like 40,987th pace) and this guy is right.
But I think after this one my body and I might need a serious break.
And big thank you to everyone who has donated to my page!
Also I got these sweet kicks : )
P.S. My sista is getting married in a few weeks and this dapper fellow is my date. Jealous?
