Our weekend was a good balance of fun and adulting. We have a few projects that we are working on around the house and the dreary weather helped us stay inside to work on those yesterday. I have to admit that I miss our sunny spring weather but the rain did make it easier to be inside! Rather than write about our weekend, I figured I would share some photos!
|Saturday afternoon at the Virginia spring beer festival with friends|
|I love when I get a new record on my Garmin!|
|Saturday morning, Paddy and her best pals - a sheep, polar bear |
and chicken - were hanging out while I did a quick workout
in the living room. She loves her farm animal toys!
|New sneaks! I finally made it to our local running store to|
get fitted for new shoes. I'm trying out a neutral shoe
which is new for me - the New Balance 880s.
They feel like I'm running on clouds. Love at first run.
|Wednesday's workout was a challenge, and I had to talk myself into staying|
on the TM many many times!
