Weekend Recap

Happy Sunday!

I sure hope you’ve had a great weekend, and I hope the weather played nice. My weekend overall was pretty great, and rather relaxing.

Friday night

I was in the mood for Hooters. So that’s where we went.

I then proceeded to order probably the worst meal I could have picked for me. Think fried things. Lots of fried things. Everything was tasty (especially the fried pickles), but it was just overkill and I ended up feeling really nauseous after we left.

You live and learn though. 😉

After a couple quick errands, it was time to pack up for my weekend long run. I was so stoked for my long run because after the run the Fit2Run ambassadors season kickoff party was planned, and I had just received this in the mail and couldn’t wait to try it out.

Saturday

I woke up bright and early. So bright that the sun wasn’t even out yet. 😉 I was on my way to Weedon Island by 6:30. On the way there I saw lightning, and then I saw more lightning, and by time I was pulling in I knew it wasn’t looking good.

The sunrise was pretty, but there were some ominous clouds rolling in.

The run AND party were cancelled due to the weather. I was so bummed! Stupid rain. And yes, I proceeded to say that every 10 minutes for the next 2 hours.

I did get my Fit2Run ambassador swag bag, so it wasn’t all bad…

I stopped by Starbucks on the way home hoping that would cheer me up. Unfortunately though, they screwed up my drink and I didn’t realize it until I was already back on the road. Sadness!

I did a couple things around the house before waking up the Boy, and then we got ready and headed out to breakfast at First Watch. It was very yummy!

I still really really wanted to run outside; rain was forecasted almost every hour throughout the weekend. I kept checking my Weather Channel app in hopes that something would change. Around late afternoon it looked like I finally had my chance; it showed a rain-free 4-hour block which was perfect because all I needed were 2 hours.

I made my way over to my parents house because I planned to run from there. I asked my dad to come pick me up if it started to rain- I meant it as a joke.

The plan was to run “up” from their house 4.5 miles and turn around. Simple enough.

I had just passed the 4-mile mark; I pulled out my GU and took a quick pic. I thought this looked pretty.

I now think it looks mean.

I didn’t get even a quarter of a mile further before it started to rain. Hard. I’ve never had to deal with that before- I’ve been very lucky up until this point. I saw some trees up ahead that looked like they had a dry spot under them. It wasn’t long before I was soaked. I got my phone out and texted my parents- praying that they hadn’t already left to go dinner.

They were on their way in no time, and I was so so so appreciative.

Since my gym was closing up for the day, I couldn’t get in the second half of my run, so the Boy and I went out for dinner. We opted for Sweet Tomatoes, and it definitely hit the spot.

We spent the remainder of our night watching more than a few Sons of Anarchy episodes.

Sunday

I woke up to rain. Lots of rain. By 11:30 it slowed to a drizzle, allowing me some time to get in a few errands I needed to run.

I then had a very nice- lazy- afternoon at home. Around 5:00, I felt I was safe to get in long run part 2. I got packed up and made my way to downtown Tampa. It was so nice out, and not too hot. My legs felt stiff and heavy, but I didn’t care, I was outside!

Since my normal Glycerins were still drying off, I decided to pull out the new ones I just ordered. I got these for half the price I paid for my regular ones (with a coupon), and planned to just keep them in my closet until my regular ones wore out. Well…rain happens!

The Boy and I then enjoyed an incredibly tasty black bean burger/mac and cheese dinner. Yeah, this totally hits the spot every time!

And a big shoutout goes to two of the best grandmas in the whole world. Happy Grandparents Day!!!
