Mine was crazy wonderful even though nothing turned out the way I expected/planned. It all started on Friday with an early dismissal for my darling daughter and every moment with her this weekend was a delight. She even tried to stump me with questions such as "How did the first human get here if there was no Mommy or Daddy?" and "Where do plants go when they die?". Oh my! I love that girl!
And she loves me enough to be pulled out of bed, given a quick breakfast, and being tucked into the car for a trip to the gym Saturday morning. I kept it shorter this week for her and ran 3.76 miles. You can read about that virtual race HERE.
Yesterday I thought dear hubby was going to be off and planned a family run in the morning. Nope, he was called into work so I headed out with darling daughter and yes, we were bundled up for a Hawai'i run. Go figure!

And surprisingly hubby got home early! So I decided another run was in order, and this one solo. What did I learn? Running after eating nachos totally covered with crushed red pepper is less than ideal. Okay, if I knew I was going to go run again I would have eaten something else. I had the fam drop me off and told them I would meet them up at the park. Dear hubby questioned me with a "really?" said in a way that may have crumbled my confidence if I wasn't so determined to run. I said, "yes". And off I went....slowly....uphill....against a crazy headwind.....that just got stronger and stronger. It was a great run!
