5 Things from The Weekend
Another eventful weekend has come to a close! I really wish every weekend was a three day weekend. I’m definitely counting down the days until the Fourth of July!
1. Cecil Gave Us a Scare
Friday afternoon Cecil swallowed a twist tie and had an upset stomach for about 24 hours until he was able to pass it. Poor little guy! Once he finally stopped throwing up Saturday afternoon he conked out hard.
2. Saturday Morning 12 Miler
Saturday morning I got in my 12 mile long run early so that I could spend the rest of the day with Adam. Fort Lauderdale was a hot and sticky mess in the A.M.! It was 75 degrees and rising with 90% humidity when I hit the pavement. Yuck! I felt like I was running through a cranked up sauna.
That evening Adam and I planned to go see the new X-Men movie but ended up just watching Captain America: The Winter Soldier at home. I kind of wanted to be home in case Cecil started throwing up again, and the allure of watching a movie on the coach in my pajamas was strong!
3. My New Favorite Food
At the movie theater we would pay $25 for crappy candy, but at home I could have this delicious yogurt for free (well, paid for previously at the grocery store anyway).
Apple Cinnamon is seriously my new obsession. I don’t know why I never tried it before, but I’m now eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Does anyone else get obsessed with certain foods and eat them until they can no longer stand the sight of them? I do this all the time!
4. The 85 Year Old 24-Hour World Record Holder
On Sunday Scott Jurek posted a picture of himself running with Leo Lightner, 85 years old, who is the 24-hour world record holder for 80 year olds. WOW! Can you imagine running for 24 hours straight at that age?! So impressive!
On Friday I read an interview where Scott said he is hoping to take the 24-hour record back this October. Fingers crossed for him, as I think that race is going to be his last before he retires from running professionally.
5. HEAT WINNNNNNNNNNN
’nuff said. Let’s go Heat!
Was it hot and sticky on your weekend run(s)?
Have you gone to see X-Men or Neighbors?
– Neighbors isn’t the kind of movie I would normally want to see, but it’s getting really good reviews!
