Weekend Recap

This past weekend was busy, but fun. It started with one last 30th birthday celebration at my parents house on Friday night. We did dinner with family and then invited more family/friends over for a bonfire. The weather didn't cooperate, and it was rainy and super humid, so we didn't do the bonfire  but we still had a good time. I'm seriously so lucky to have such great family and friends in my life!

Saturday morning Kevin and I did our long run for the week. 12 miles. I was pretty much useless after that, but we went out and did some quick batting practice for softball before heading to a friend's surprise 30th birthday party. We were pretty tired by the time Saturday night rolled around, so we headed to bed fairly early.

Sunday morning we headed to Lansing with Chris & Lisa (Kevin's brother and sister-in-law). Lisa, Kevin, and I ran a 5k race in Lansing that morning. It was our first chance to wear our matching shirts that Kevin made for us (see pic below). I wanted to beat my fastest 5k time, but was worried that my legs would be too tired after running 12 miles the day before. But I guess all the interval/speed work we've been doing paid off, because I beat my best time by about 1:45! I finished with a time of 26:34, which I was really happy with. Kevin got a new PR too...I think he was around 25:20.

The Capitol building in Lansing.

(I took first place in my age group...but it was a really small race and there were only 3 people in my age group! Kevin also took first in his, but again, there were only 2 people in his age group. But we'll take it! lol)

After the race, we headed to the Potter Park Zoo for a couple hours and then had lunch before heading home. Sunday night was spent catching up on laundry and watching the start of Shark Week. Looking forward to a fairly quiet week before another busy weekend!
