What a week! I can’t believe it’s Monday again, let alone Memorial Day! Happy Memorial Day to everyone, thank you to all who have served.
Last Monday, I ended up having to stay at work a bit longer to help a client on the phone. I missed going to cycle class, so I headed out for 4 solo miles instead. It’s been raining so much lately, and it was pretty humid, so I had a few minutes after my run in the shade of this gigantic and beautiful tree.
The tree was just so gorgeous in the sunlight.
Tuesday night, Amy and I ran a few miles, and then I relaxed with Jasper. I also had a bit of reflection about my last day of my 20s, because Wednesday, I was going to turn 3o!
Wednesday was my birthday! I ran with Amy in the morning, had a carrot cake at work, and had dinner and went to a painting class with Amy and Michelle after work. It was the perfect day!
I also got my new medal holder in the mail this past week. My previous medal holder was full! I ended up putting all my half marathon medals on the opposite wall. Now I have lots of new spots to fill up on my new holder! Both of the medal holders are from Running on the Wall. I love how everything turned out.
Friday, after work, I drove home to Hays for the long weekend. This sight will always mean I’m home.
Saturday morning, I headed out for 5 solo miles, before Mom joined me for the final 2 miles. I hoped to run 8 miles, but I was pretty wiped out after my 5 miles, and only managed 2 more! Half marathon #10 is in less than a week! Anyway, while I was running, I ran a bit on the bypass, and had to stop and take a selfie with the horses.
After we were finished, we took Shay on a short little walk. She’s been limping with a sore back leg, so she can’t run with us, but she sure wanted to.
After our run, I finally got my snoball! YAS! Cervs is the best.
Mom and I had lunch with Ava at The Q, another of Hays’ best. We went topless in Mom and Dad’s bug.
Saturday night, we went to Jalisco’s for my birthday dinner. I was able to stretch my birthday through the weekend! I was even given a birthday shot, wahoo! HAH!
Sunday morning, Mom and I ran a few miles, and then took Shay for a short walk. Sweet girl. After our run and walk, Mom and I went to the cemetery in Munjor. Something amazing that happened: So last fall, Mom put an electronic solitaire game out at Grandpa’s grave, because he loved playing his solitaire game. While we were at the cemetery yesterday, we rearranged some things, and Mom picked up the solitaire game, and it started dinging the WIN WIN WIN sound, and even showed the WIN on the screen. It has been oustide in the cold, snow, and in the hot, rain, wind, dirt, for over 6 months, and the dang thing turned on, and had a WIN! I guess Grandpa’s been playing solitaire out there. =)
Sunday afternoon, we watched the Royals win (for the third straight game of being down and coming back in the last few innings!!) Mom and Dad were cooking/grilling for dinner, but first, Belle and I went to get a snoball on Sunday afternoon. Mmmmm. So good!
Grandma and Granddad came over to eat burgers, brats, corn on the cob, and cheesy potatoes. MMMM!!! So much great food over the weekend. Granddad had fun playing with my snapchat. Love this so much.
After dinner, Michelle came over (her parents live at the opposite end of the same block as my parents), and Steve, Leann, and Ava came over too, for dessert. When it was time for Belle to go home, we went topless in the bug again for a little joy ride!
It was the perfect end to a wonderful weekend, and the best way to end a birthday week! I’ll be going home this afternoon, and already can’t wait to come back again for the 4th of July! Did you have a nice Memorial Day weekend? Have a great week!
