Sunday Funday!

So, yesterday was a crazy busy day! It started off with a 8 mile run and then breakfast with my running friends. After breakfast, I had to shower quickly and then get ready for a bridal shower. The bride was definitely surprised, and the shower kinda awkward. Anyway, I was only there briefly I had the opportunity to help my mom with getting my dad to the airport so he could go visit my sister J. After getting him on his way, we went to my Uncle "Quack's" house for a Labor Day party. It was nice to hang out with family. One of the bad things that I have noticed with eating healthier, is that while at said picnic, other than corn on the cob and chicken, nothing else there even peaked my interest, including the deserts.  It was a little disappointing, but a huge success in the willpower department. We came home and just hung out. Well, I did housework and ran to get some groceries, once M was in bed. My husband was in bed by 700 last night.

This morning, I woke up and ran 6 miles with some of my running friends again. This time at Jacobsburg State Park. It is beautiful there, but my legs were sore, and I was hoping that after a mile they would loosen up. But they did not :( Then I had a brief period of mental fatigue and all I wanted to do was walk away from it all. But, no worries, my good friend Bob (I hope I can call him a good friend) talked me through what I was feeling and found the good things and the things I should be proud of in this run. So, I finished the run, and finally, I am feeling proud of running 2 tough runs back to back. Maybe one day I will be a marathoner or and ultra runner, in the meantime, I am going to enjoy the journey to my next half marathon.

Since it's a holiday weekend, I don't have to worry about the weekend ending too quickly. I get to skip Monday by staying home ;)
Have a great Sunday!

"Enjoy the Journey"'s the BEST way to get there. Baby steps, Mama!
