Two weeks ago Michelle and I ran the Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon. And this weekend, Beth joined us to run the Zooma Annapolis Half Marathon.
Beth's flight was severely delayed Friday night (we had some pretty bad thunderstorms up here). We had plans to go celebrate my 30th birthday, but it was all we could do to chit chat for about 30 minutes before everyone wanted to go to bed.
Saturday, we all woke up early. Marc took Sofie with him for a run so that Beth and I could sleep in, but neither of us could. Once Marc and Sofie got back, we all got breakfast, then the girls went shopping and Marc had a day to himself. Beth ended up with a Garmin (I think she's hooked on running!), I got more wick away undies and new work shoes, and Sofie got a new water bottle and I puppy dog. Everyone was happy! Then we went birthday shopping for Marc...his birthday was Sunday. If anyone is in the market for a new blender, I highly recommend this one! Not one single ice chunk! It was like drinking the frozen drinks out of the fancy machines at the Mexican restaurant.
Pics from Saturday.....
Michelle, her daughter Lolly, Beth, me, and Sofie at mile marker 13. We look pretty darn good for just running 13.1 miles!
On our way back to the car, we saw this painted in the parking lot at the Naval Academy football stadium. Beth and I thought of Eric Zaiser! Anyone know how to get in touch with him to share the picture?
We went to Old Town/downtown Annapolis after the race. It was Marc's birthday and he wanted crab cakes and we were definitely in crab cake territory. Sofie and Marc were playing peek-a-boo across the table.
Michelle and Lolly had a mean game of hangman going on.
And I finally made it in a picture (instead of always being the one behind the camera).
After lunch, we went in search of this cupcake place that was supposed to be at the post race party. They were there, they just left their booth before us back-of-the-packers made it. We found the place but the cupcakes didn't look nearly as good as we had built them up in our minds. We opted for ice cream instead.
Beth and I went to the pool and hot tub Sunday afternoon. We couldn't win. The pool was fairly comfortable temperature wise, except for the wind. And the hot tub was way too hot (not to mention the annoying teeny-bopper couples). We left and got Mexican. Everyone was in bed by 9:30!
Sadly, Sofie and I dropped Beth at the airport at 7am this morning. Beth is already looking for the next race for us to run!
This pic is not from this weekend, but it was too cute not to share. Sofie looooves her new swim suit!
And, finally, promised pictures of our new bookcases.
