Weekend update: 7/14/13

Man, I had a great weekend. Lots of time with friends and family.


Started with a hot and sweaty 5 mile run with Luke. Then, date night with my husband, complete with a margarita!!


On Friday, I met up with Becky and Melanie at the Mall of America.


Of course we had to do some shopping at Lululemon. I still had a birthday gift card to use – 2 new running tops! Thanks Dad. Smile 


Then, I met up with Sue to go for another hot and steamy 5 mile run. We were matching pink twins.


Both Luke and I got new shoes. He took his off cause it was too hot, but I kept mine on. . . First time checking out Mizunos. First impression is good. . . full review after I put a few more miles in.



See, I told you it was the best weekend – running & cupcakes!!


Saturday morning we drove up to Le Sueur for the Crazy Days 5K. I just wanted to finish under 30 minutes with both the baby jogging stroller and the dog –> we totally crushed that and finished in 26.46!!


And we had our family picture in the online paper!!


Luke and Abby wanted to get more exercise in.  . .


Afterwards, I did some body pump. Abby was glued to my hip the entire time. It was thunder-storming out and she hates thunder. .. poor girl. IMG_4953

And then baking. Banana bread in mini muffin form. Is there anything cuter than mini muffins. *If you make this recipe, cook time for mini muffins is about 15 minutes.


Sunday was a fun day. .. 7.5 miles for my long run this week. It was almost perfect weather: warm, sunny, breezy, a little hot in the direct sun, but overall better than the hot hot hot runs that I have been suffering through recently.

And a 3 years old birthday party this afternoon. . .

And now we all feel like Abby and are headed for an early bedtime.


Hope you had a great one too. Smile What were you up to?

  1. Sounds like an awesome weekend! We enjoyed lots of fun & Vitamin D this weekend. Started off with a trail running date with my husband on Friday afternoon. Blueberries are just coming into season, so we took our girls to a local patch on Saturday morning. We came home with two gallons, and I think the girls ate their own body weight in berries! Homemade blueberry pancakes this morning. YUM!
