This past Saturday I ran my farthest distance- 18 miles! After my 7:30-9:30 class ended (The Principles and Practices of Epidemiology), I met up with Michelle to run!
I’ve said this before, but she’s an amazing runner AND an amazing running partner. She knew just what to say to keep me going through those 18 miles. She even made me do 1/4 mile pick-ups at the end of our run…
I was probably swearing in my head during this photo, but man am I glad she made me do that! If our schedules align, we will be doing a 20 miler coming up! And before you know it, it’s time for me to taper!
After my run, a shower, and a quick nap, it was time to get ready for Kyle’s (belated) 25th birthday celebration with his parents!
We went to Forbes Mill Steakhouse (highly recommended if you live in the Bay Area). The restaurant even printed a special message on the menus at our table! How cute is that?
We all LOVED our meals (I had the most amazing salmon!) and were ready to unbutton our pants by the end of dinner. Luckily I remembered that my mom told me this was frowned upon at fancy establishments so we refrained.
Sunday I woke up feeling sick. Womp womp. And the first thing I said to myself when I woke up (other than, “man I have to pee”) was, “Damn I’m glad I got that 18-miler done yesterday!” No way I could have completed 18 miles feeling the way I did on Sunday (and today).
One thing that cheered me up was my baby Sienna coming to visit me.
She’s staying for a few sleepovers this week! I was a little worried that she might be nervous in a different home, but she seemed to settle in nicely
How was your weekend?
Who ran this weekend?
Do you ever puppy-sit?
