Enjoying the long weekend

In order to get ready for the marathon wedding week in which my best friend gets married, I took the entire 4th of July weekend off from all things wedding and stress.  Instead, I ran a lot and sunbathed even more.

Saturday = 8 miles @ 8:42 pace
Sunday = 6 miles @ 8:26 pace
Monday = 4 miles @ 8:18 pace

Friday, I stopped at the post office and mailed all 80 of my wedding invitations.  Then Brian and I headed home to his parents house for a weekend of fun and sun.  Every morning I woke up early and headed out to explore the roads and then returned to change into my bathing suit and sit by the pool.

It was so hot out that Brian choose to stay in the pool most of the day...


while I hardly moved from this chair except for the occasional dip in the pool.  My tan is coming along nicely and still no running tan lines!


It was a delightfully relaxing weekend and exactly what I needed - I feel rejuvenated and ready to tackle this week of wedding fun!  Now all I have left to do is get a pedicure and write my maid of honor speech for the reception....I better get going!

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July and/or Canada Day weekend!

I'm so bummed about the Boilermaker, but I talked to the RD today, and he said I could defer until next year, and he'll give someone else my slot. Silver lining, right!? : )
