OK... not really. LOL!
Just thought I would put out a blog and let all my Spark friends know what I have been up to lately. I know I have been quiet on Sparks and that is mainly because I have been super busy and haven't had much computer time to be on this site. But here is what has been happening over the past few weeks.
I recovered just fine after my half marathon race. In fact, I raced on Saturday and was out again on Monday for a nice 4 mile run. After I was plenty hydrated my body was feeling great. So all my training did pay off.
I turned one year older. I always try not to make my birthday a big deal but we did have a nice weekend. My birthday happens to be Cinco De Mayo and now married into a Mexican family, we always have a nice celebration. And we usually have Mexican food. I started the day with a nice 11 mile run with my sisters and then finished the day having some good food and laughs with family. It was the perfect day!
Of course the margaritas and shot made me feel "extra" good! LOL
This past Saturday I ran 15 MILES! No, I am not training for a full marathon, at least I don't think I am. I just love to run and wanted to see how my body would do running even more miles. It felt AWESOME! Now I say that.... during the run was tough because we had strong winds during the whole 15 miles which added some nice resistance. I had sore knees afterwards because of it. But yesterday I felt pretty good and today I am ready to run more! Is it crazy that I am now planning a day to run 18 miles and then another day to run 20???
Yesterday I had a great Mothers day. We took the kids out to Valleyfair and I had a blast going on the rides with my kiddos. This was opening weekend and they were so excited to get back out there.
We spent all morning into the afternoon going on rides. Then we walked through the Dinosaur exhibit that just opened this year. It was pretty cool!
Welp, that is the last couple weeks in a nut shell. Hope everyone is doing great!
