I love the Hampton Inn. They give away free chocolate chip cookies at check in.
So, the reason I was in this position. As soon as I got in the car to get to my run on Saturday morning, (anyone else see the irony there?), I thought to myself "Oh, I forgot body glide...oh well". Um, lesson learned. Future marathoners, take note: You go back for body glide. No matter what. It doesn't matter how late it will make you. Trust me. If anyone out there ever takes away anything from this blog, that's it. Enough said.
We went to a microbrewery in Williamsport with my cousins that has some sort of coffee beer. I hate beer and don't think it should taint the wonderful taste of coffee, but my sister liked it. We also saw a live band, they were pretty...interesting, as random live bands often go. It was great to hang out and see everyone though.
My mom & I - we were sort of matching.
I feel this picture sums up our relationship.
Anyone interested in coming up with a caption?
Here's a close up of Eric's face.
I love my husband - I know my life will never be boring with him around!
After the band it was the moment I'd been waiting for - CHEESECAKE!
Obviously I would never choose just one kind (or stop at one piece) so I cut up one of each to make a little tasting plate.
It looks messy, cheesecake is hard to cut.
It was so delicious it makes me want to take off my wedding band and start doing cake tastings at every bakery I can find.
Now there's a face of satisfaction.
My sister and I got a little cold once I finally put the fork down.
In the morning, I worked out at the hotel gym, showered, was treated to a wonderful shopping trip at Wegmans (thanks Mom & Vince!!!) and we headed home to get ready for a Super bowl party/gathering at my friend Sarah's house.
Thoughts on the Superbowl1. Sarah made amazing food.
2. Fergie is hot.
3. I got to a new level of Angry Birds.
And that's about as excited about football as I'll ever get.
Yesterday (Monday) I did my five mile easy run in 47:48, which is impressive considering how I had to walk over ice, or come to a complete stop when the sidewalk was impassable and there were cars coming with no shoulder.
Today we have our speed workout, which will be hill repeats, and apparently a wind warning will be in effect. BRING IT!!!
