I’ve been sitting here this afternoon feeling exhausted and now that I’m starting to reflect back on the weekend…it’s no wonder!
I was up at 5 am on Saturday to do my long run outside. I really didn’t want to try and attempt running 9 miles on an indoor track. As soon as I was home from my run – you know, after I recovered and blogged – we went to a birthday party for a very special 4 year old!
We had a great time at the party catching up with friends and lovin’ on our favorite 4 year old! We spent a good 3 hours outside in the heat and boy was it hot!!! K succumbed to peer pressure and went down the inflatable water slide with D!
Loved that I was able to capture this moment, it’s priceless!
After the party, we came home and I worked on some homework while K ran in to work for a couple of hours. Later D and I met up with my seester (still in town visiting from Boston) to shop for some Father’s Day presents.
Dinner was had by all at Kona Grill. I wasn’t feeling well after my long run and afternoon in the sun at the birthday party so I wanted something light and easy. I chose the Philadelphia Roll – yum!
And a Four Peaks Kilt Lifter – or two!!!
K had the Spicy Salmon roll, I stole a piece and it was pretty good!
Ended the evening getting hugs by my Pro Compression marathon socks!
And exchanging texts with some really hammered friends visiting Vegas. I was also drinking a couple of these new-to-me beers!
(I didn’t care for this beer too much, it had a weird after taste – too flowery for me. But it boasted 9% alcohol content per bottle so if you pick these up – watch out!!)
Today is Father’s Day…in case you didn’t know. I was up around 9 am but needed to do a couple hours of homework before we did too much. Since K was in a lazy state of mind, he was fine with me getting the homework out of the way. After two hours, I emerged from J’s old room/my new study room, and we readied for lunch at Red Robin..yum!
I allowed myself to have the cheeseburger but skipped the beer. I still needed to get my 1 mile run in and having a beer threatened that goal from becoming a reality. It’s freakin’ out here today, my car thermostat is registering at 112*!! Yikes. Beer + Stupid Hot Temps = A Good Excuse Not to Run!
But alas, running prevailed and as soon as we were home, I went out for my 1 mile run. That was torture. I had no random thoughts because…all I could think about was not dying of heat exhaustion!
After some cooling off, I dragged K back out in to the heat to get some ice cream!
Wow, I’ve consumed far too many calories in the past 24 hours!
I hope you’ve had a great weekend and have enjoyed your Father’s Day! I especially wish these two great Dad’s in my life the Happiest Father’s Day!! I love you both!
