Friday started off with an early morning alarm going off at 5:30am. I ran a quick 4 and some change mileage and then we hit the road for a drive to Spencer, MA. We visited friends for the weekend and they took us on a surprise tubing trip! To say it was fun was an understatement! For about 4 hours we tubed down the Connecticut River with minor rapids, a cooler filled with beer and twisted teas and made a pitt stop to jump off some cliffs! Below is a picture of us before we hit the river.
The white bobble looking things was our coolers!
After tubing we got some Mexican, chatting a bit more and went to sleep at our friends home.
It was an early rise again on Saturday. Our friends have four children ages 5 and younger. Yes, you heard that right! They were up and ready to play around 6am and there wasn't really any point in trying to stall. I got up immediately and started playing with the kids and tried to give B a couple more hours of sleep. He was up about 30 minutes later ha! They were having a BBQ that day, so we helped out where we could, but mostly I just played in the pool with the kids. B is the godfather of the little girl (she is the only girl out of the bunch) and she is our flower girl in our wedding next month. Here is a picture of me and my girl Luci at thier BBQ.
We left around 4pm and heading home to Hoboken. Around 7:30 we got home, showered and tried to watch The Bourne Legacy. It was a fail. I fell asleep about an hour in. Oh well, I'll have to catch the ending another time.
Sunday was, you guessed it, another early rise. I got up around 6am and heading on my long run. I was excited because on Sunday it did cool off a bit. The heat wasn't that bad and it showed in my run.
Kind of fuzzy, but above are my stats for that run.
I felt great, but it was kind of annoying because I had to start my tracker about a minute before I actually started my run. I ran at around a 10 minute mile pace. It isn't fast but I'm still starting out and my long runs I need to maintain a slow pace because I am not sure how much energy I will need at the end. I did start hitting the beginings of the longer paths I took last year. It was fun and it made me happy to see the same milestones I had surpassed last year.
After the run, I showered, got my oil changed, went to a fun baby shower for my beautiful cousin and headed home to chill the F out!
Tonight, wedding work followed by an early morning short run!
