It hurts so good! & Surprises

I ran with my co-workers on Tuesday.  We did a very easy 3 miles in 33:59; unfortunately, my butt/leg/hip (somewhere in that area) started hurting again.  Since then, I have been foam roller-ing like crazy!  All I can say about that is that it hurts so good.  It's like massaging out a very painful knot.  On a good note, it seems to be working.  As much as I wanted to run today, I told myself I'd give my butt/leg/hip another day off.  I plan on a very easy run tomorrow.  Then Saturday will be my 15 mile solo run... my first time running so far on my own.  But I will have something to look forward to.... a blogger meet up!  I cannot wait!

Speaking of meet ups, I had two surprise meet ups this week.  My youngest sister was in town for a couple days visiting some of her friends.  We met up for dinner before she left.  We went to Brio, and I had a delicious chicken and sweet potato risotto.  Who knew I loved risotto!  My super awesome sister even gave me a super awesome gift... a personalized mug.  I love it!  I took it to work today.  Today we also had a brief meet up with Chris's mom who was in town to bring something to his sister.  It was really great to see family this week that I do not usually see on a daily basis.
This week I also tested out my new super awesome tea kettle!  The temperature really does change the flavor of the tea.

Finally, my mom sent me home with a package of Dove Dark Chocolate.  Dove chocolate usually has little messages written on the inside of the foil.  I had two pieces as dessert and discovered a message that I thought was great.
Miracles aren't limited to the holidays.

I hope you all have had an awesome week so far.  Did you have any nice surprises this week?


  1. Your pain sounds very much like mine. I had a hip bursitis due to increased mileage. If you catch it early enough you will be able to run pain-free soon. I recommend you seeing a chiropractor. Once I saw him I was pain-free in 3-4 weeks. I hope your feel better soon!!

  2. Good luck with the 15 miles! You'll be great!

    And I can't WAIT to meet up with you on Saturday! :D
