Weekend Recap

Yesterday started off pretty early for me. 5:00 AM to be exact. Since joining Team in Training a month ago my Saturday mornings have been dedicated to training in different areas of the Valley. I have to admit that it is hard for me to get to bed early on Friday nights and then wake up so early the next day but I keep reminding myself of our cause. Again this week I had a really hard time sleeping the night before which it made it hard to get out of the bed. With it being a holiday our group was not as big as it has been however we all managed to finish either 5 (marathoners)or 2. 5 (half-marathoners) miles. After our run we headed over to Denny's for some breakfast and good conversation, picked up lots of good ideas for fundraising that I'm going to look into. My plans for the rest of the morning included a nice, long shower, some blogging, some TV and then a few hours of sleep. I knew Robert would be busy at a local BBQ cookoff and I was really looking forward to just relaxing for a while before heading out there. I managed to rest for a couple of hours when I got a call from Robert informing me to be ready in 20 minutes, he'd be waiting outside with a "surprise you'll love!" I was still tired and needed more rest but that surprise got me up and getting ready. I got in the truck and started asking question after question about my surprise. He stopped be and asked me to open the console and that's when I saw this: I was soooooooo excited and spent lots of time yesterday and today trying to learn how to use all it's features. Still don't have it all figured out yet but am enjoying it a lot more than my other one.

The rest of our afternoon was spent at a local BBQ cookoff that a close friend of ours was participating in. It was so hot and hard to be out there for so long but we really wanted to show our support for him and his cooking team. They ended up placing 6th in one of the categories. Considering he was competing against 46 other teams, that was AWESOME!!! The other way we showed our love was by serving as his taste testers. :)))Here's a pic of his BBQ pit and the flag in the background. How fitting for the 4th of July!

With all the activities and excitement of yesterday it is no surprise we stayed in most of the day today and just relaxed. Tomorrow is Robert's first official day of vacation and there has been some talk about heading out to the beach!!!
