9:00 AM: 4-Mile Run – COMPLETED
I’ve been M.I.A. the last few days as it’s been one crazy weekend. I don’t think the weekends will slow down until the second week of July or so. We have non-stop events for the next 7-weekends straight. Sheesh. Lots to catch up on, but I’ll have to fill you in on that during the week. I’m still sick — even went to the doctor’s on Friday last minute. Unfortunately, he prescribed me pretty much NOTHING and I’m disappointed. I have some “viral bronchitis” crap and I seriously need to take something. I vomited twice yesterday and once today. I had to cut my 12-mile run down to 4-miles today. I’m hardly getting any type of sleep and my mom thinks I’m too skinny. I’m pretty sure I lost weight just from being sick. I’m weak and getting a bit apprehensive over this marathon in TWO weeks. Hopefully the lack of runs won’t affect me in any way. I mean, we are tapering.
Anyway, I didn’t let my sickness get in the way of my first Mother’s Day. I had an incredible day from the very start.
I pretty much cried reading the Mother’s Day card. It was perfect.
We were having brunch with my family at 11, so I was able to get a 4-mile run in. Then we quickly got ready and headed over to the restaurant.
Mothers with their Daughters.
It was a great brunch and the food was delicious.
We had some time to kill after the brunch and Pedro’s best friend, Marian called to wish me a Happy Mama’s Day. She was on her way back to the city, but I told her to swing by.
It was great catching up with her. She stayed while Lili and I took a nap. Pedro and her had some one-on-one time. It was much needed.
We headed over to Mother’s Day dinner with P’s family. It was great. A nice day for a BBQ. They had the pool opened too but we didn’t go swimming since I’m still sick.
It really was the perfect Mother’s Day I could ever ask for; sick or not sick… I mean, I know I could have at least enjoyed the food more, but that’s okay. I got to spend it with family and that’s the best feeling ever.
Hope everyone had a fantastic day. I’m not looking forward to going back to work on Monday. I need a 3-day weekend every week.
