Saturday was John’s birthday and as one of my goal’s this month was to make sure he had a good one, I let him do whatever he wanted.
We started off with biking to breakfast. It was already warm and muggy out when we got up. Ugh! We biked to Coffee Planet.

I had a great day yesterday! I tell you, though, my email and Facebook exploded, which was cool – but overwhelming!
I had taken the day off, so I knew I wanted to bike ride, but not for how long. Then Shelley mentioned that she ran 4.9 miles on her birthday and that I [...]
First off – Happy Birthday to John! Welcome to year 43
I was up early knowing I had a lot to do today. I was out the door at 6:30 to do C25K day 2. This first week does 60 second runs alternating with 90 second walks. I am using Robert Ullrey’s podcasts for [...]
Thank you all so, so much for the birthday wishes via email and facebook! My facebook and email exploded – d’oh! So thoughtful of everyone! I had a very nice day. We started off with biking to bagels! I almost went somewhere else and had a different breakfast, but hey – it’s Sunday, which is [...]

This place sells chocolate (duh), but also does breakfast, [...]

I am smiling way too cheerfully for so early in the morning, don’t you think?? I did cover up the hair with a hat, though.
I did a [...]
Had family over last night to celebrate John’s birthday a few days early (it’s on Tuesday). We decided on a cheese sampling with crackers, fruit, hummus, salsa, plus cake and ice cream! We were going to do pizza and cake, but thought it might be fun to do something different and it is what J [...]
Woke up a little early this morning. I went out for a run and decided to do another 6 miles. I ran one 5K loop back to the house, had 1/2 a balance bar and some water, which I left on the porch, then John joined me for the second 5k. That was fun! We [...]
