Hello, Internet party people! I’ve dedicated the morning to perfecting my Season’s Treatings dessert competition entry, so no run photos to share with you from this a.m. (buy tickets here, btw). But, I do have lots of run photos from the weekend!
I’ve been trying to keep it low-key on the running front since my race was just a few weeks ago and my left hip has been feeling sorta wonky… but the gorgeous weather lately and my running buddies are hard to pass up. On Black Friday, I kicked off the morning with some cross training.
In the form of shopping. All that bag carrying is tough work!My mom, sister, and I have been dedicated 6 am Black Friday shoppers for more than a decade. Don’t hate.
Later than morning (which felt like 5 pm since we’d been up so early) I went for a nice and slow 3-mile jog. Empty Black Friday wallet, full Thanksgiving stomach, sore boot camp legs. And blue skies.… and a free broken table top. On 14th and Lillian… get it while it’s hot!On Saturday, Anthony and I met up with my summer training buddy Rayna for an 8 miler. After running multiple double-digit runs with Rayna this summer, 8 felt like we were just warming up. Ha!We headed toward downtown and took a lap around Music Row. The streets were so empty due to the holiday weekend!The skies were crowded with clouds, though. Overcast and windy. Go Anthony, go!Thanks for the run, Rayna! Also I feel like I should let you know that I don’t have some weird growth on my hip. That’s just a car key tucked into my little tempo short pocket. And as for the hair… like I said, it was WINDY.And some more cross training. This time, bocce. My parents stayed on past Thanksgiving to hang out with us over the weekend. We spontaneously decided that Saturday afternoon was perfect for bocce ball and found ourselves at Coco’s…My dad has skills and my mom just has crazy luck. So, the old folks beat Anthony and me twice in a row. I put on sunglasses to hide my tears, tried to stay warm in 30-degree temps, and drowned my sorrows in a pint of Stella.And then I was going to have a no-run Sunday, but another running buddy asked me to join her! And it was 63 degrees out. So I said yes We covered four fast miles. And then I called it a day!And now, it’s time to return to my baking duties. Have a great day!
