First things first: Run Streak is still going strong! Day #24 and counting.
Lola and I were chatting and she thinks that she should always be included in the introductory post photo...I agree. <3
|This is Lola and I after my Wednesday evening 8 miler. xo|
On Friday I wore this sweater to work and I have to say that I wasn't sure if I loved it or hated it. I was out on yard duty first thing and I sort of forgot I was wearing it until we went into the classroom and I took off my jacket. Just like moths to a flame I was surrounded by a group of 6 and 7 year old boys who all professed their love for my "Minecraft Shirt!" What?!?!?!?! I had heard of this game a kazillion times since being a teacher and have even helped kids spell it on more than one occasion, but I have to say that I did not buy this $14 sweater thinking it had anything to do with Minecraft! LOL.
Here's another photo from my super crappy phone just so you can get a better idea:
I capped off the work week with an easy paced 5k run on Friday evening and then high tailed it to a fundraiser that my school was having at the mall. I may have ended up leaving with $50 spent on Running related reading, but it was for a good cause. ;)
Matt and I welcomed the weekend with these:
Lola made sure I was definitely sleeping in on Saturday morning:
In case you can't tell she is laying on my waist/leg area, lol.
Look what happens when you dog is sleeping on you and you don't want to wake her up!
|You start to braid her tail, lol.|
And then my Sunday run was even MORE rainy AND windy!!! At least I got to run a new route with speedy Jennie! My sneakers will probably take oodles of newspaper to dry and at one point Jennie informed me that she could hear my feet squishing as we ran, lovely.
FYI: We did not plan on showing up with braids and the exact same Boston shirt on...I guess when you have Boston gear you just want to wear it. ;)
And my free coffee afterwards! Apparently the Starbucks app had just updated and was being glitchy so the cashier gave it to me for FREE. :D
I have the BEST friends in the whole wide world just so you know. Post run my speedy friend Marg stopped by to give me this and some lentil soup!!! Thanks a million times!
I guess my body wanted sugar since I couldn't stop thinking about a candy cane hot chocolate from Tim Horton's when I went to the grocery store.
So I'll probably be on a sugar detox for the rest of the week, lol.
I hope you had an excellent weekend and thanks for stopping by!
What's your favourite post-run treat?
Candy cane hot chocolate: Yay or nay?
