Weekend is coming to an end...
Sunday, October 02, 2011
Tomorrow I have to go back to work. As do many of us. In the movie "Kate and Leopold" (obscure reference, I know) Meg Ryan's character talks about how Sunday is poisoned, you can't enjoy it because you have to go back to work on Monday. Sometimes I really understand that sentiment.
I had a great weekend, tho. Busy!
I worked a water stop for a 10K race Saturday morning, which was a good way to see the scene from another perspective. Most of the runners were so polite, saying "thank you" to us for being there, even when they didn't want water.
Went to breakfast with my new running club friends, then to lunch with the ladies in my family, and splurged on some new winter running clothes. (If you're looking for running clothes and you have a T.J.Maxx near you, I highly recommend checking it out.)
Sunday I got up early and went for a 6 mile run with my daughter. It's so much fun to run with her--she keeps me motivated and she's such good company. Then she fed me breakfast--what a sweetheart. Volunteered at the zoo after that, then went to a concert with my mom and sister, then had my parents over for dinner. Whew!
I'm ready for a break--too bad I have to go back to work. Have a great week, everyone!
Postscript: One of the fun things about our 6 mile run is how (relatively) easy it was. Not that I wasn't tired, but I wasn't too tired to do all the rest of what I did on Sunday. I'm a little creaky, (hey, I'm almost 49!) but not sore at all. My efforts appear to be paying off, WOOT!
