Saturday morning I headed out about 30 minutes later than I normally do but it was still really early because I am officially hooked on getting the run done first thing. The temperature is perfect. I don’t have to deal with a lot of traffic and I get home before Brooke wakes up so it just works for me. I did the early morning thing for the three years I taught high school and I am back to it again and I love it.
The mile splits were: 7:40, 7:10, 7:09, 6:55, 6:53, 6:51, 6:50, 6:26 overall average pace of 6:59.
During the last mile I was in my zone. I just wanted to finish strong so I really wasn’t paying attention to anything around me. Next thing I knew it I heard someone over my right shoulder go muhahaha in a very deep voice. I had a heart attack. I screamed so loud for 10 seconds straight and I kept on running. It was Bangs Friend. She was running by on the other side of the road (I didn’t see her) and sneaked over to scare me. It worked. She got me back from the time I jumped out of the trunk and scared her.
Billy is crazy and prefers running in the middle of the day. Brooke and I went to walk on the trail while he ran. I wore flip flops to prevent the temptation to run with him. My coach will be proud. Remember the guy that ran a 2:46 marathon in flip flops?!
It was our good friend J-Dizzle’s birthday party last night.
Brooke clapped the entire party.
Grilled pineapple and bacon wrapped chicken for appetizers.
And chicken cordon bleu casserole. Wow.
After dinner there was a relay race. I really have no idea what my right arm is doing in this picture. I told you I have awful running form.
I am proud to say that Billy and I won both heats. We are borderline a little too competitive.
Ever seen lego candles? They are pretty much the coolest. For dessert we had tres leches cake and a chocolate tart.
Billy and I finished the night with 4 episodes of the Big Bang Theory. We know how to party hard.
If you had no obligations all day long and you could run whenever you wanted, what time would you run?
Any other Big Bang Theory fans? Last tv show that you watched?
Do you make casseroles often? What kind is your favorite?
