Busy Day!

Dental appointments, errands and schoolwork with my son (we homeschool) kept me very busy today.  So, when 3:00 rolled around I decided to take a nap. It was a bad move!  I woke up an hour later and felt more tired than before!  Not good considering I had a group run at 6:00.  Never the less, I put my shoes on and persevered.  Being with a group of other great runners always helps!

Today’s run was for 30 minutes and it was hot.  We ran the west side of the trail which has big hills.  I started out too fast, but managed to find my pace and get my breathing under control.  Despite the heat I managed to run the entire time and kept a 12:50 pace which is good for me!  Little by little I am getting faster!

Today was also my best friend’s birthday!  So, naturally I had to get her a birthday girl ribbon to wear while she ran!  She was a good sport!

It is great to have a friend to run with even though I can not keep up with her!  Having my husband running with me is even better! I can not keep up with him either! 🙂

After running we celebrated my friend’s birthday, grilling chicken fajitas and eating birthday cupcakes.  Hey, we earned those calories!

By the way, I am not in any of the  pictures because I was taking them!
