You have to kiss a few frogs…

Sunday – Rest Day

Monday – 5 mile hill run with Ryan at 6am & afternoon kayak

Sunday one of my good friends Tara was in town and we met at the lake to kayak. I was going to consider it a cross training, but I think the fact we had a few beers while kayaking negates the cross training aspect of the workout. We did paddle hard and ended up in this incredible area of the lake.

There were hundreds of lily pads covering this part of the lake!!   No frogs though…

My Saturday morning long run was good.   I felt great the whole time and didn’t mind running solo especially since my only other option was running at cheetah speed with Ryan and Sue.  Ryan did join me for my last half mile, but one of my favorite running songs.. 99 problems by JayZ was on my ipod, so there wasn’t a lot of talking between us, I was just focused on finishing.

After the run I headed up to the big city.   I had the honor of hosting my niece Sarah’s wedding shower at my mom’s house.   It was a perfect day and she got a lot of great gifts including a tangerine Kitchen Aid Mixer.   We had two great desserts.

My dad was the official photographer so he joined us in a family picture.

It was great to meet some of Sarah’s friends and her fiance Joe’s family.   I am looking forward August 11.
