Weekend Adventures

Monday, November 13, 2017

For whatever reason, my words have pretty much escaped me. So I’m just going to keep it simple. This weekend was fairly busy.
Saturday morning was the Richmond Marathon. So I got up before the sun to go into Richmond to run the 8k! We got into the city, found a place to park, and made a mad dash for a warm hotel lobby bathroom and by the time we got out I had 20 minutes until my run started. The course itself wasn’t that bad. I ran with my water bottle and by the time I got to mile 3 I had taken a few too many sips of water. My tummy was all sloshy but I kept pushing on. I managed to finish in 1 hour and 3 minutes. My hope was to finish in 1 hour and my “I did pretty good” time was 1 hour and 5 minutes. So I’m glad I finished right in the middle.
My mom did pretty awesome with her half marathon though. She cut 10 minutes off of last years’ time. She ended up finishing in 2 hours and 24 minutes. I’m so proud of her, though she said she as so glad it was over.
I have been trying to spice up Texan and my relationship recently. It feels like we’ve fallen in the “old married couple rut”. I seriously hope we aren’t the only ones! Anyway, I wanted to take a day-date up to the mountains to pick some apples. Sunday morning Texan reluctantly agreed to the trip even though he had other plans. We ended up having a good time but we weren’t super impressed with the orchard we went to. This orchard had high reviews from all of my coworkers but it didn’t meet my expectations. I was a little bummed but I can now say I’ve had the experience of going apple picking.

The weekend went by so fast. Now I’m ready for the weekend and our next date-night!

How was y’alls weekend?
