Having a four day weekend was probably one of the better decisions I’ve made most recently. Aside from accomplishing not much at all, I did manage to stock my fridge and take about 20 naps. The fridge was most important though.
I made plans Sunday evening to meet Krissy Monday morning for an early run on Kelly Drive. I don’t know many other people who get up at 5:45am on Memorial Day, but we sure did!
No makeup, sporting my sweet Oakleys, and happy to be (mostly) awake. Mostly… I’m glad we made the early start because the run got real hot real fast. I couldn’t imagine doing it any later than we planned, because I’d have probably keeled over, scared the crepes out of Krissy, and thus ended the only Running of the Krissy(ie)s to ever take place. But, we did it! I had tons of fun chatting about random life stuff, marathons, blogging, and other things while on the run. This also kicked off my streak for the Runner’s World Run Streak (follow #RWRunStreak to join in or just spectate!). Here’s the run synopsis:
I decided to make it nice and pretty for you. Aren’t I creative? Don’t answer that. I wore my new New Balances and they felt amazing during the run. Krissy also sported bright shoes as well. I think it’s the trend of the year, so get on it, people! Brights are the way to go. Plus, eye bleeding colors on your feet make you feel happier, right? We had to do a post-run photo op, and luckily walking part of the KD loop prevented me from looking like a total tomato.
I seriously cannot wait for Krissy to visit again. Blog-friend meetups are so much fun, especially when exercise is involved (it makes it way easier, trust me). Driving home I felt pretty happy and accomplished. A blue bird could’ve landed on my shoulder. Well, at least until I got home and saw this.
Sigh. I don’t even get that mad about it anymore. Instead of complaining, I just drove around and parked out front. Our neighbors (that have done this multiple times themselves) are having their kitchen redone and the contractors still don’t seem to realize I PARK IN OUR GARAGE. I definitely won’t miss that when I move out.
In other news, I painted my nails. In spite of my low expectations, the fingers have yet to chip (emphasis on the yet).
I also still sort of had a mood slump by the end of the day. No fun. And that was my weekend. It still didn’t feel long enough as I needed the biggest cup of coffee the caf offered today.
Weekends should really be longer. Period. The end.
