|We need to talk about what "fun" means Mommy.|
|Sarah may just love me a little too much. :)|
|They loved it. No matter what they say.|
|See, all smiles!|
But, I digress. The best part was that even though I dragged them out of bed early for some crazy hill repeats, they showed up with cupcakes, candles, presents and hand sanitizer (to make eating said cupcakes a little less bad). I love these people.

|They even brought candles!|
|Sarah even put up with my sweaty hugs with minimal complaints!|
For some silly reason, his ire, after the emotional high of the birthday fun run with friends, made me cry on the way to to the car dealership. I think he sensed that he screwed up because when I got in the car to drop him off at work, he asked how my run went. My response, "it was one of my best birthdays ever until you made me cry." Such a lucky man, he never has to guess with me! HA!
Speaking of crying - Avery was NOT pleased when the fun car ride with Daddy ended with dropping Daddy off without her. She full-fledged sobbed about it. Wonder where she got that from? I made an emergency stop at a playground to cheer her up.
|I'm too busy to look at you right now Mommy.|
Long, boring story short, he convinced me to go for the lobster. Avery was hilarious at dinner and wanted to high 5 everyone in our immediate vicinity. I had lobster and coconut shrimp and dessert. And, yes, Thursday's run was all kinds of awful. Worth it? Probably.
For Independence day, I made more unhealthy food, and got my birthday cake from Mark a day late...but no candles. This is the first week were I truly feel my diet had negatively impacted my workouts. Birthday excuses are now over, time to shape up! :)
|So sad about the candle situation.|
Last thing, I need your advice! Mark gave me permission to sign up for a half marathon as a trial race pre-Detroit as my birthday present. I'm eye-balling the September 22nd weekend as the ideal timing. Some of my initial race thoughts are all sold out already (I know, I waited a long time to do this). Any suggestions for a good half marathon that weekend? I am not opposed to travel.
