Relaxation at its finest.

This weekend was soooo relaxing…

Friday evening, I rented the girliest movie I could find at Family Video, got some snacks, and cuddled up on the couch. I try to get all the chick flicks in when I’m not watching with Dan! I think he appreciates that…haha.

My work buddies and I spent all day Saturday on my coworker Betty’s houseboat on Kentucky Lake. It was exactly what I needed! We had fun just sitting in the sun, eating, jumping off the boat, and riding on the jet ski.

Doesn’t get much better than that. And one of the best parts of my day was taking a trip to Coldstone Creamery on the way home! Yummm…

During the day on Sunday, I met up with my oldest friend, Theresa, for a glass of wine and some girl time! Ahhh…

I decided when I woke up Sunday that I would do my 14 mile run in the evening. I love running at dusk, and the weather has been pretty moderate lately so I was able to wait until 6:00 to start my run without it being too hot. I have decided that my favorite temperature to run in is 78 degrees without direct sunlight (if I had a climate-controlled bubble to run in) 🙂 The run was so peaceful. I ran in the wildlife refuge again, which I love doing. I sort of mapped out my run before I started since I haven’t gone that far in the wildlife refuge before (or ever…), but I didn’t really think too hard about it. I was planning to run an out and back, but when I got to 5.75 miles, I was pretty deep in the woods and it was super buggy. I decided to turn around and make up the 2.5 miles at the end. I was glad that I decided to do that because when I was getting closer to the end, I could see up ahead a few cars all pulled over to the side of the road. Not many cars drive through the wildlife refuge, so I was wondering what was going on. When I finally got closer, I couldn’t believe what I saw. A herd of 27 deer were grazing and playing in a field! I have never seen so many deer at one time! It was a beautiful sight with the sunset. I stopped for a quick second to take a picture but it didn’t turn out the greatest since it was getting dark…

I finished in 2 hours and 20 minutes, so I clearly took it easy, but overall I felt great! It’s so much fun to see how my body is able to do more today than it could do yesterday. It’s just a really great feeling.
