Crazy Busy But Enjoying

I must say that you probably be terribly disappointed in today's post. I've been incredibly busy and am in between "dates" for about 15 minutes.

I literally hit the ground running this morning and haven't stopped. I woke up insanely early (thank you Maddie). But I needed to get up and out early if I was going to run. I hit the river trail at 6:30 am. There was a nice breeze, but the humidity was insane. At 3 miles in, I realized I was running with an "I'll try" attitude not an "I will" attitude.

I had wanted to hit 8 miles, but early on I was already psyching myself out. I refocused and set my goal and went for it. Run, walk, crawl, I was going to hit 8 miles. And...I did. Overall, it was a really good run. I only had minor hip issues. Post-run, I still felt really good, no tightness or anything. Which was good considering the rest of the day.

With only about 20 minutes, I had to stretch, roll, shower, and hit the road again as we were due to meet my family at the lake (an hour away) by 9:30. I promise to post fun lake pictures tomorrow - mostly of niece and nephew "monster" tubing with their Uncle Jason.

Unfortunately, we couldn't stay as long as we would have liked. I had a lunch date with a dear friend that I haven't seen in years - far far too long. I was not going to pass up the opportunity to catch up with her. We met at 2:30 at a really nice little place called Capis for snacks basically.

We spent about 3 hours catching up and walking around the shopping center the restaurant was in. Three hours was definitely not enough time I must say. Of course, it never is when you're trying to cram about 7 years into an afternoon visit. :-(

I am now off to help a friend celebrate her 35th birthday. Again - I promise for a better post, with pictures tomorrow.

I promise to also reply to your fun comments from yesterday's post. I've been reading them, just not been at a computer to respond. Loving them. Definitely worth revisiting for laughs! I hope you all are having a great Saturday!
