In honor of my 34th birthday I decided to run 3.4 miles this morning.
|My first mile is always my roughest. Clearly, it takes me two miles to get into the zone.|
Of course, somehow I messed up my route and when I was done with those recorded 3.4 miles I was too far away from the house and a little short on time so I ended up running about a half a mile more just to make it home.
Hubs surprised me with a World's Best Mom mug filled with gummi bears from the boys. My actual birthday present was my half marathon race entry so this was a pleasant treat. I hadn't had coffee yet otherwise I would've thought to take a picture for the blog. Ah well.
Tonight we're celebrating with dinner and a movie (I'll be sneaking those gummi bears in with me!). I really want to see the new Captain America film but will take pity on Hubs (who is pretty anti comic book movies) and we'll see Grand Budapest Hotel. I love Wes Anderson so it's not much a struggle for me.
And tomorrow I'm celebrating by volunteering at the Martian Marathon and then at night going to dinner and an opera with my best friend. And Sunday is a brunch with my mom and sis. It'll be a weekend of celebrating!
Last year the boys were so young and I was tired and still somewhat brain numb so celebrating my birthday seemed like such a chore. This year I am more than making up for it.
Have a good weekend. Good luck to Hilary and anyone else who is racing this weekend!
