Happy Sunday! I hope today is full of relaxing and doing your favorite things! Yesterday’s race was (surprisingly) great and I’ll have a full race report for you tomorrow morning. I finished in 1:26:08 and this race made me really excited about where I can take my half times this year.
Brooke always makes me feel pretty awesome after a race by asking me questions and staring at the race medal for quite some time.
Yesterday my mom told me that Brooke did some chores for her while I was gone to earn money for a Mother’s Day gift. For real? Both my mom and Brooke are the best.
After the race and picking up Brooke we went straight for some Jamba Juice to get a pb and chocolate smoothie.
While we were sitting there drinking our smoothies my garmin beeped at me to move…. Hmmmm my 1/2 marathon was enough movement for the entire weekend.
There was a lot of relaxing and play-doh and Brooke making crazy faces for me.
And our favorite—> baking. We had a bridal shower to go to so I made my s’mores bars to take a long with us.
Check out these amazing cookies that were there… one of the guests made these. They were almost too pretty to eat!
My stomach felt pretty wrecked after the race and I couldn’t eat much besides my smoothie but finally by dinner I was ready to eat. All-You-Can-Eat sushi was the best idea possible. I don’t think I’ve ever eaten so much sushi at one time but it was so ridiculously good and it hit the spot.
Sushi was followed with a 3d IMAX movie (Captain America: Civil War——> super long movie but that’s good for recovery right?!)
Post-race—> the stairs up to our seats were almost too much. My legs were burning!
And I ended the night with awesome raspberries and my feet up on the wall (feels so so good).
Happy happy Mother’s Day to the amazing women out there that love, serve, teach and reach out to others constantly! I sure lucked out with the selfless/kind/wonderful/thoughtful/beautiful/hilarious women in my life. I think you’ve been able to tell over the years of blogging that I’ve got an incredible mom.
And an incredible Mer.
And my favorite little clip about Mother’s Day!
Enjoy your Sunday and feel free to tell me three things that you’ve got going on today!!!
