I just got back from an 8 mile run, it was great! I left around 10am and it was only about 69° which I was very happy about. There was a nice breeze most of the time, but it was still pretty damn humid outside. It was a great run overall, a lot better than last weeks. It was a little slower this week, but a lot more enjoyable. I felt pretty strong the whole time and I even sprinted the last half mile. It was nice to feel strong at the end of the run, instead of feeling like I wanted to die. Definitely worth the slower pace.

Today is my Dad’s birthday! Derek and I are going over to my parents house for a family gathering. I bought my Dad the Shamwow! and a tub of pistachios (he loves them). There is kind of inside joke in my family where my dad always ends up with all of the ‘As Seen on TV’ products. I think he will like it anyhow. You’ll say WOW every time!
I went out on Friday night for one of my co-workers birthday. We went to Jillians and I was only going to stay for an hour or so, but I ended up having such a good time that I stayed the whole time. I got there around 4 and left around 10! I’m really going to miss all of the people I work with.
I had planned on a 3 mile run for Friday, but I thought it was worth the sacrifice of hanging out with good people instead. It turned into two rest days because I didn’t end up doing anything yesterday either. I drank sooo much beer from Friday to Saturday.
Yesterday, Derek and I did some errands and then went to Martha’s Exchange in Nashua. We got some really good food and beer there and then ended up going out to The Wild Rover in Manchester for even more beer and we met up with sister, Kerri and her husband Scott. I have some great photos to share, but I will have to upload them a little later because I am heading over to my parents house now, hope everyone is having a nice Sunday!
