30 miles achieved! Not sure if more running or some other cross training will be on the agenda for tomorrow instead.
Oh yeah, I also turned 30 this week. I knew there was some other significance to that number.....
Of course a fancy dinner was involved
with some really wild party animals. We roll with the fast crowd these days.
Some more friends stopped by the house afterwards, and lots of this was consumed-
Riesling and Red Velvet Cake
It was fun and low key. Just how us old folks like it :)
Mr. Blondie surprised me with a couple new beads for my Pandora bracelet and a new foam roller. For years I've been rolling out my calves with a pool noodle. I don't doubt the merits of foam rolling. I just couldn't bring myself to spend $20 bucks on a hunk of foam, so I've never gotten a real one.
The $1.68 pool noodle looks pretty similar huh? Its small diameter made it difficult to do areas like my IT band though.
You know I just about died when I found this Mr.Blondie's pocket when I was doing the laundry. AYFKM?!
He tore up the receipt in front of me when I insisted he take it back. I wasn't supposed to see that! Just enjoy the gift.
Oy. Will this thing cook dinner and give the kiddo a bath too? Now that would seriously help me out post-run.
Is there something you know you paid too much for, but are still glad you bought anyway?
