Weekend Wrap-Up


Like many of you, my long runs are saved for the weekend. HM and I have three more weekends before our half marathon and our track record for weekend long runs is not great. This weekend was no exception. As part of my Kids In The Kitchen commitment, I had to help man a booth at a Girls On The Run 5K on Saturday. It was held at the park by my house and so I woke up early, strapped a coffee to Big Birdie and set out for Sugar House Park.

I can't say I was all that helpful, but I did hang out with some nice ladies on my committee.

We talked to the kids about how to build a balanced meal and we also gave out orange slices and play jewelry for the girls to wear during their run. They had a lot of fun warming up with the jump ropes and hula hoops we brought.

The oranges were a big hit, but we had way too many left over. HM and I went to our new neighbor's BBQ Saturday night and I should have brought the tub with me but I chickened out. I didn't want to be the creepy neighbor that shows up with the bucket-o-oranges. See, HM and I want to make a good impression on him so that we can set him up with a certain young lady. I won't call her out on this blog, but she reads it and hopefully knows who she is. We just need to get her to move to Utah first....

Move to Utah, we have oranges!
We were not able to go through all of the extra oranges, which is too bad. It is also too bad that attending a 5K as a volunteer/spectator does not count as a long run. Yeah, so that means that my track record for long runs just got worse. It didn't happen. HM and I were busy getting the house ready for my parents visit. I will share more on that tomorrow.

What did you sweets do this weekend?
