First and most importantly it is Billy’s birthday tomorrow. I am more excited than he is. Today we are doing most of the celebrating because we will be in the car most of the day tomorrow. Only problem is that he will only allow me to sing to him the Happy Birthday song ONE TIME on the day before his birthday (unlimited on his birthday). I already used up my one time when he first woke up this morning but he said nothing about singing it in a different language. So, if you know the song in another language please share with me because I am going crazy not being able to sing it all day long.
I set out this morning with zero desire to run and grumpy to the max. I was so grumpy I didn’t even want to go to the lake because I knew the lake deserved better than my bad attitude. At 1.5 miles into my run I ran into a really good friend and she said she wanted to run with me (she had already done 8…she is my hero).
We went on the hilliest run of my life, I promise the picture does not do these hills justice. This is one of 45 hills that we covered in 7.5 miles. 45 may be a slight exaggeration.
We talked the entire time and it went by so fast and she put me in the best mood. What would we do without friends?
The reason that hills hurt so much according to Runners World:
Lunch was delicious but the picture just didn’t do it justice. I had corn on the cob with leftover steak and potatoes. For dessert I had a strawberry tootsie pop in bed while writing this post. And I wonder why my keyboard is sticky.
Last but not least I have to share my favorite snack with you. It is very complicated, take a piece of french bread and put a few slices of avocado on it and eat.
Favorite way to eat avocado? Favorite avocado combinations?
When was the last time you did a hilly run? Do you have hills close by or do you have to run for a while to get to them?
What is your favorite part about birthdays?
