Thinking Out Loud

Happy Thursday!!  It’s time for another Thinking Out Loud post. Thinking-Out-Loud

Yesterday, I celebrated my 41st birthday!  It was the perfect day, very low key and we enjoyed a really nice dinner at one of my favorite restaurants.  We spent the evening sharing funny college stories with Nick’s dad and step-mom.  Many of the antidotes, they had never heard.  It’s funny how we wait until we are well into adulthood to let our parents know all of our “stories”.  Hayden sat and listened to all of them, laughing.  We are very honest with her when she asks questions about life and our past.  It’s helped strengthen our relationship with her.  She’s not afraid to ask us questions, sometimes she doesn’t want to hear the answers, but I’m happy that we have that kind of relationship with her.  She also doesn’t play favorites between Nick and I either.  She is just as willing to ask Nick questions.  I think it’s great!

I woke up this morning thinking it was Friday.  It was the worst feeling in the world.  You know exactly what I mean?!  I’ve been trying all day to be okay with it being Thursday.

This weekend, I’ll be running the Hamilton Lakes 10K.  I’m not ready to race anything.  I thought about it briefly after this past weekend’s 5 miler, but I really just want to treat this as part of my weekend long run.  I’m planning to add in some miles on Sunday too.

Spring Break is right around the corner!  We have just 5 more school days until we have off 7 days.  I’m looking forward to spending some time with Hayden.  We’re headed out of town just the two of us!  I’m pretty excited!!  Nick scored tickets to the Masters so he’s heading out of town the same time with the guys.  I’m so happy for him.  This is the first year he’s gotten tickets through the lottery!!

So what’s on your mind?  What are you thinking about?

  1. Omg there are SO MANY stories I haven’t told my dad yet about my youth! It’s hard to explain if you don’t know him personally, but my mom and I get along wayyy better so I tell her a ton more.

    I totally understand not wanting to “race” but sometimes doing a long run as a race can give you extra motivation! I’ve done that before and it was awesome 🙂 You guys are lucky your Spring break is coming up! Florida already had ours at the beginning of the month. I took my vacation then too, so I don’t get another one until later this year.

    • I get that!! I think my mom knows more of my stories too. My dad would probably think they were funny but then the analytical side would be saying and I was paying for school?! And she was doing what?! lol!! College isn’t always about going to class. I’m going to see how I feel. The pollen has been kicking too so my last few runs have felt yucky. The weather will be about perfect though on Saturday. It’ll be a day of decision most likely! Or the middle of a race decision even.
