My weekend was jam-packed and very exhausting, but I had a great time and enjoyed every moment of it. I hope you had a great weekend as well!
Let’s get to the ReCUP…
There were cupcakes at the office! I restrained myself and only had one. 😉
After work, I was off to Kat and Juan’s wedding rehearsal. We rehearsed for the ceremony and then did some light setup for the reception. Afterwards, we headed to Vallarta’s for dinner. I order a vegetarian plate of a burrito and chalupa. Very yummy!
When I finally made it home for the day, I logged on to Facebook where I first learned of the horrific events that unfolded earlier in the day in Paris. My heart aches for all those affected.
I woke up bright and early to go run. And I enjoyed every moment of my 8-miler. My last long run before the big day! It was perfect- the weather was amazing, I felt strong, and content, and am pretty sure I smiled throughout all 8 miles. This really gave me an extra confidence boost for Route 66.
The training group was out on Bayshore for our long runs; I ran solo but was joined by Coach Kirsten for the last 2-3 miles. It was so nice getting to chat with her!
I love crushing my daily activity goal before I even eat breakfast!
After my run, I had to rush home to get ready. For those of you that do not know, my daddy is using up his GI Bill and has been working on his business degree for the last year, and…was recently extended an invite to join a National Honor Society fraternity. He was inducted this week, along with about 10 others from his school. There was a nice ceremony, and they even had a cake! 🙂
Since I was rushing after my run, I didn’t get a chance to eat much, so lunch couldn’t come soon enough. We went to Red Robin where I ordered a whiskey river BBQ burger. Typically I don’t mind Red Robin, but the quality was definitely lacking with this. The burger was okay and the fries felt way under-cooked.
And then it was wedding time…
Kat and Juan had a beautiful ceremony under the setting sun. They even asked me to recite a reading from Everything is Illuminated.
And then we danced! The reception was so much fun and the food was great! Earlier in the day I had a shoe emergency and had to rush out to find a pair of red shoes. I was having the toughest time until I went to Payless. They had these for $25, and…for having absolutely no time to break them in, they held up very well. They were very comfy- even with all my bad dancing. (Oh, and since we were outside for the most part, I picked up some Solemates to minimize the sinking into the grass. They also worked quite well!)
I was hoping for more time to relax today, but I had a pretty productive today, so no complaints here.
I worked on my mile dedications list. Almost done! 🙂
Then the Boy and I ran a few errands before heading to the gym. I got a jump start on packing, since I won’t have much time during the week to do so.
I also decided on my Route 66 Bloggers Forum outfit. Here are a couple of the contenders that didn’t make the cut…
Check out this race-day weather! Has anyone seen my mittens? 😉
