This past weekend my mom came down to visit, and Chris's parents came up to visit and our parents got to meet for the first time. We all went to a local Art Festival and Wine Stroll to meet up with one of my favorite local artists, Rob Kaz. He had a Facebook contest, and I was one of the winners. I won a free print of one of his latest pieces of art that has that adorable little frog character I love. The print is called "Piggyback" and has the frog sitting on top a turtle's shell. So cute! I also purchased two other prints titled "Hey Me" and "Lazy Rain" to add to my collection.
Chris and I had fun showing my mom some of our favorite places as well as just relaxing at home. It was a really great trip, and I was sad when the weekend ended. Although I did get to extend my weekend by an extra day in order to go to my sister's concert.
As far as running goes, I am glad I ran Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of last week, because I could not wake up early on Saturday. My mom's arrival was delayed due to a terrible accident on I-4, so our plans were shifted, and I did not go to bed early on Friday. Luckily I did get my three days of running last week. I decided that I wanted to run on Sunday and really should have set my alarm for early in the morning. Unfortunately, I did not run until 11 am, and my planned 5 miler turned into a 3 miler. Despite the fact that I was carrying water, I was so very hot by the time I made it to my three mile stop at a local park that I decided to call Chris and have him come pick me up. I will not try to run at that hour again, especially not in 90 degree weather.
Mile 1: 10:03
Mile 2: 9:57
Mile 3: 10:32 (included a short walk break... that was when I started to feel over-heated)
Oops, I have to cut this short, because it is time for the concert! I hope that you all have had a wonderful weekend!
