Happy Birthday to John!

My best friend turns 45! Now he is the same age as me

It was birthday weekend around here because we don’t just do 1 day for this kind of stuff. I told John whatever he wanted to do we would. So, we did a little biking and a stop for ice cream.

We […]

Happy Birthday to John!

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.

My bagel […]

44 miles for 44 years

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 […]

Picture heavy post coming up! We had huge thunderstorms roll through in the middle of the night, but they stopped early in the morning, so we were still able to bike to breakfast to start the birthday festival. Stopped at the Chocolate Mill for breakfast.

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


Well, I did my longest run to date! 7 miles! Here is me early this morning with a protein drink prior to hitting the pavement. Cheers!

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 […]

Birthday party and Sunday

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 […]
