I snagged a smoothie for lunch on Friday from Tropical Smoothie. It was delicious. I think it was called the Avocolada. It was a little sweet, but I loved it.
Jake got off work early Friday because he got called in suuuuper early that morning, so we ran together when I got home from school. Well, we attempted to run. It was not our best. Our legs were dead & we both just felt blah. We managed to get 6 in, & we definitely turned the closed trail into an obstacle course. There was water everywhere, so we did some puddle jumping & tried to splash each other. I lost. Eye-roll. Whatever. After our run, we got ready to meet my parents & sister at Grad School for dinner. We shared a salad, wings, and tacos. The wings were incredible. Definitely a Top 5 for me! Mmmmmm.
We were so excited to see The Temptations & The Beach Boys perform!! I had seen The Beach Boys before, but never The Temptations.
The Temptations were AMAZING.
And The Beach Boys were incredible, too! As always.
We were both struggling to stay awake...9 pm is our normal bedtime! We were getting up early to do long runs: 10 for me & 20 for Jake.
We woke up early Saturday & got ready to go to Wilson's Creek to run. It was cold & rainy. YUCK. My Timehop reminded me that this was my view one year ago...sunny, warm Cancun for a girlfriend's bachelorette party. Em, take us back!
I got 2 laps in at Wilson's Creek, which was 10 & the boys went on to do DOUBLE that. I was so impressed because my legs were DEAD.
Really. My legs hurt. But I LOVE Wilson's Creek & already want to go back & run there.
I came home to shower, then Jake called & said they were done. We met at Early Bird & ate breakfast with Katie. This is the deliciousness I had. I could only eat half at breakfast, but I finished it off a couple hours later. Then it was home to nap & lounge in bed. We watched a little Netflix & cuddled the girls. We never get to do that, so it was SO nice. Then we met our friends Nick & Cassie at Black Sheep for dinner. I totally failed & didn't get a single picture - we were having too much fun! Jake and I shared the Salt & Vinegar fries (which are my favorite), the fried pickles (which are his favorite), & a lettuce wrapped burger. I don't normally eat fried food because it gives me terrible heartburn, but everything sounded so good, I gave in. Nothing bothered me too much! Then we all stopped by Cherry Picker on our way home to grab a drink with another couple, Ryan & Sam, before we went home to pass out. We were both worn out!
On Sunday, we grabbed coffees from The Press. Their coffee is AMAZING. We sat outside drinking them, before grabbing breakfast at The Aviary. We were LOVING the sunshine & rain-free weather.
I got my favorite, the Humble Brag & Jake got a crepe with steak, carmelized onion, & blue cheese. They both were incredible. Jake also had a side of the frites, but they were being cooked when I took this picture & we didn't have the patience to wait! ; )
Then it was home to clean (me) & go for a ride (Jake). My parents gave us this door mat for Easter & we finally got around to putting it out front. We love it!! Thanks, Mom & Dad!
Jake got home early from his ride, his legs were just shot, so he didn't push it. I'm proud of him for listening to his body! He mowed while I worked on meal prep. We decided it was WAY too nice outside to be inside, so we rode our bikes to see Ryan & Sam's new house - which is perfect & adorable!!!! Then all four of us headed to Mother's to sit outside, chat, & enjoy some beer. It was a perfect day!
Jake & I rode bikes to Ebbett's for dinner, where Cassie & Nick met us. We loved getting to see everyone TWICE in one weekend! <3 We shared the Gibby. Mmm. After dinner, we rode home. I think we ended up with about 18-20 miles for the day!
Breakfast this morning was a 3-egg scramble with mushroom, onion, & spinach. Also, some pineapple! Mmm. I didn't run this morning, so I'm planning to do a short run later this afternoon.
Our menu for the week - 100% Paleo, which I'm SO ready for, especially after our weekend of fun!
Happy 24th Anniversary to Jake's parents!! <3
I hope everyone's Monday is wonderful!
I write about whatever is going on each day. I want to use this space as a place to document my dissertation and training journeys.
