Lots Of Valentine Stuff, School Stuff & Running!

February 14, 2015

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday… Running: I met up with Jeff (on Wed.), supposedly for a recovery run… But it didn’t feel like a recovery. My legs are beat! We ran 11 miles at 1:13.39. I’ve just been exhausted. On Thursday, Jeff, Amber and I ran the Harry’s hill loop. We went for 12.5 miles (in 1:30.44). We did a 4 mile “tempo” down from Harry’s (I averaged about a 6:10-6:20 pace for the 4 miles). I am still tired though. Friday I met up with Danny and Blake and went for a 9 mile run in 1:10. It was a great recovery run. We hopped on the river trail and went at a slower pace. A much needed run. This morning I met up with Amber and Rachelle… What a beautiful morning!!!

IMG_8213 I finished off in 1:42.53. I was glad to be done!!!

Wednesday-Friday… School Stuff & after school stuff: Every morning before school, the girls and I helped with the valograms (Valentine handouts).

Indoor Track: The HS kids practice on their own on Wednesdays and on Thursday they went on a 5 1/2 to 7 mile easy to moderate run. Some of the kids have a track meet on Friday and most are going to the sweethearts dance. Which leads to Friday night… I took a handful of kids to the Olympic Oval indoor track for the meet. They raced really well!!! One of the sophomores pulled off a 30 second PR in his mile! And of course we had to stop and get Jamba Juice (smoothies) for our drive home! 🙂

Valentine Dinner With The Girls: Corom made a fun and yummy fondu dinner for the girls and I! The girls loved it. We celebrated with them on Thursday night because Corom’s brother and his family are driving into town this weekend.

Saturday… Valentines Day: After my run… we (Corom & the girls, Corom’s mom & Gary, Corom’s sister & her kids & Corom’s brother & his family) took the bus, hiked the Y and then went to the Creamery for lunch.

So Corom told the girls to take one of the balloons from the bus (it was from the dance last night)… And run it down to them. It was a little funny… (Especially being in the bus)…

Processed with Moldiv Corom and I went to dinner (with the Fullmers) at the Clarion Event Center. We did leave our kids with the older cousins. :/

IMG_8218 Dinner was excellent!!! We had prime rib, raspberry chicken, lemon chicken, mashed potatoes, carrots, salad, rolls, desserts and more. It was wonderful!!!

Processed with Moldiv The best part… It was all you can eat! 🙂 We danced to a live band… Good food and good company.

Processed with Moldiv The kids had fun with their cousins and we had a good night.
