Hi Friends! This week is going to be all sorts of packed for me, and since it ends with a weekend away to see some friends, I am already anxiously awaiting Friday! But, I can't jump ahead to next weekend before I've recapped this one, so here we go!
The weekend party started early when the BF & I headed straight to the 40th anniversary party of some friends after work. Drinks, DJ, dancing? What's not to enjoy!
I'll rag on the DJ who continually turned the lights lower & then back on, then dimmed them again, making picture taking impossible. ;)
You should see all the ones that didn't make the cut!
Saturday started off with a group run. I managed to convince the BF to come run with me, no small feat because it meant we needed to be out of bed by 645AM-ish. We met up with the group & Jennifer joined in on the fun too! The route was half trail + half road & we ended with about 5.5 miles total. My pace was unremarkable, but I had a lot of fun.
Post-run coffee was enjoyed in a new mug I snatched from TJ Maxx last week. I'm not a big stuff person, I can walk through Target & come out with nothing. I just don't need it & would rather spend my money on other things, like food & travel, but a good mug? It's the one thing I cannot resist.
This new one fits HALF A POT OF COFFEE! Like, legitimately, 6 cups of coffe! And, since it came with a view of the BF cooking breakfast, I loved it even more.
Sunday was church with the BF's family before he headed off to work & I headed off for my first bike ride of the year. Shame on my for not dusting off the cobwebs & pumping up the tires sooner, I've been busy.
I did a "quick" 15 miles at nearby North Park. The park has a 5 mile paved loop around the lake. It has it's own bike lane, and some rolling hills. So, while 3 laps of the same stretch of road can get boring, the people watching is great & I love not having to worry about getting hit by a car.
What was the best part of your weekend?
What's your preference - trail running or road running?
