Today I Turned 36 Years Old :/

August 6, 2014

I began my day with meeting up with Amber (also her birthday) for a run. We ran 5.8 together before I met up with the cross country kids. I did add speed into my run today. 4 x 1200 repeats around Christensen’s loop (well .72 almost a 1200). I ran 1 with Amber and 3 more while the HS kids were running their 3 mile warmup before they began their 4 x 1200 repeats.

I would run back and forth until they finished their loop, read off their times, send them off again on another repeat, cool down more, etc. I ran for 1:17.31 minutes. I felt great today… Getting older has nothing on me! 😉 The minute I came home from practice/running (at 8:15 a.m.), I was bombarded from the girls. They wrapped up presents for me… So cute.

I did more cleaning and then Corom and I (and the Carter’s) went out for dinner at a Thai restaurant. The food there was great. Later, we took the girls up to the ball fields in our city for movie night. They were playing the Lego Movie.
