Weekend Wrapup and More

 We had another nice weekend here. Ian had a relaxing Father's Day, even though I had to work Sunday night and leave him with the boys. The boys and I gave him a charcoal grill and he grilled up some steak tips that had been marinated in balsamic vinaigrette. With sautéed onions, garlic and zucchini for sides, this was the most delicious meal I've had in a long time! You just can't get the same flavors when cooking with the propane grill. Yesterday he fired it up again to have BBQ chicken and grilled spears of zucchini for dinner. Two meals in a row that the boys gobbled up. I love summer cooking.

We planned on running five miles on part of the course for the Bath Heritage Days race on the Fourth of July, but had to wait out a quick moving thunderstorm. It starts downtown, so we had to start and stop a bit in the beginning and end for traffic lights, but overall it was a great run.  Thankfully the rain cooled it down from the high seventies to 66, but the humidity was still high so we were both sweating up a storm. At least the route has some really nice houses with beautiful architecture that made the time go right by. A new personal distance record for Ian and a PDR for me pushing the double stroller. I'm thinking it will be a little easier in a couple weeks when we can run on the roads during the race instead of the sidewalk.

Tomorrow is my first official run in my training plan for MDI - just three miles, but it's a start!

Tomorrow is also the last day to enter my Cheribundi giveaway!

A hidden message magically appears when you sweat! I remember having a tee shirt back in the 80's that changed colors when it was warm...my armpits were always a different color, ha!

  1. Have you done the Bath race before? Would you recommend it? I have considered it a few times, but never done it.

    1. I haven't, I've done the L.L. Bean 10K the last two years.
