Sweet Thirty

Hey Sweets,

I had a pretty magical Saturday. It was my friend Tessa's birthday. We have had some epic celebrations over the years. This year she was turning 30 and was none too happy about. After lamenting that she didn't even want to get out of bed on her 30th birthday, we all decided to bring the party to her!

At 8am sharp we all met outside of Tessa's house. Thanks to the support of her husband, we were able to sneak in and wake her up with a surprise party. She was very surprised and a good sport when we told her that the whole day was planned......starting with a dirty thirty workout. Lindsay planned the workout which, given her competitive Ironman background, was an ominous forecast.

The workout required running (uphill) to the park and then lapping 30 times around the soccer field. The idea was to run in a straight line, and then the last person sprints to the front of the line. Over and over and over and over again. Wow. The line was running at an 8 minute mile and then a sprint? I joined in for a bit and then ventured out on my own run covering about 5 miles.

Many of you are probably thinking...

"If my friends woke me up and made me do that on my birthday I would find new friends!"

Well, her birthday was not all uphill. We were instructed to show up at 8am wearing workout clothes and bring our bathing suit and pajamas. After the workout, we returned to Tessa's house changed into our pajamas and had a FEAST. A feast in the most serious use of the term. I am talking waffle bar, quiche, Cinnamon rolls, and of course gallons of mimosas.

After breakfast we sat in the hot tub and continued the mimosa marathon. I was home by 1pm and needed a serious nap after all the fun celebrating Tessa's Sweet Thirty birthday.
