WOO HOO! The day has come–the unofficial first day (because I am currently at work for another hour) of the weekend that unofficially starts Summer. To unofficially start my weekend I went on a 4 miler this morning along the East River. It was humid and the fog was dense, but there was a slight breeze that made the conditions a little more bearable.
I felt pretty good and decided to ramp up the last two miles of my run. I ended up doing 4.01 in 33:58. Not too shabby when I was only feeling a 2 miler when I dragged my ass out of bed this morning.
I tweeted Sam Champion from Good Morning America a picture of my run this morning and he though it was pretty cool. I love him! Hi Sam Champion, you’re awesome.
This weekend I am, OF COURSE, headed to Long Island. H, my mom, and myself (3 musketeers anyone?) are going to be enjoying some tennis, running, and beaching. We wanted to head up to Henry’s parents at the lake originally, but it is so darn far and H and I both had to work (sorry Ps!). Plus, c’mon who wouldn’t want to spend their weekend with my awesome mom? What are your plans for this weekend? I think I need to look to Alex Eats Green for some summery and light food tips.
I made sure to pack H’s sneakers for this weekend. Tuesday he informed me he wanted to run another 5k, but not anything further. I think that is what we call PROGRESS people! No matter what I am just proud of him that he ran his first ever race in 26 and change. Pretty sweet!
Last, but certainly not least, (just in case I am too wrapped up in Memorial Day Weekend festivities and can’t post) I want to take a second to thank our veterans and currently serving soldiers for their service, ESPECIALLY my older brother! I am so proud of you–as a member of the Army National Guard you are giving up a lot to ensure that I have the freedom to run daily and do as I please. Make sure you take a second to thank a veteran/soldier!
I hope you all have a great MDW 2012. Stay safe. Don’t drink and drive. Don’t bike and drive. Run lots. Stay hydrated. Wear sunscreen. Thank a member of our Armed Forces.
Happy (short) Friday!
