I ran 12 miles yesterday with this girl because us crazy runner girls are, well, crazy! Ari is training for another half marathon that is coming up here next month. A twelve mile long run was on her training schedule, so that’s what we did! We made it. It was one of those runs where, without each other, we would’ve been toast! (At least I know I would’ve been!) So thanks, Ari, for your positivity and motivation!
Then, I had a meeting, and ran by Sole Sports afterwards to get THIS:
I’ve been waiting for this day for a long time! Yes, I am one of those people. 13.1 on my car, and proud of it!!
Then, I went to 24 Carrots, which is a really good vegan restaurant in Chandler that serves food made with locally grown produce and homemade everything. I got their Harvest Salad with their Veggie Chowder (made with soy milk, not heavy cream), and a strawberry peach tea.
It was very good, and I highly recommend you try it if you live in AZ.
Then, I went to Bellagio Med Spa to use my Living Social deal I purchased for 2 laser tattoo removal sessions. I got a tattoo when I was 18 with my awesome sister, Mel. I liked it back then, but I really do not like it now. (Don’t worry Mel, I still LOVE my butterfly!!) So when I saw the deal, I had to take advantage of it!
It hurt like a bitch! It takes several sessions to get a tattoo fully removed, so I expect to have several more treatments before it is significantly gone. It makes me never want to get another tattoo!! I still probably will someday, though….I know myself. I have made sure that the last two tattoos I have gotten have had a true meaning. The one I am getting removed was just a cool design that I liked at the time. It has more sentimental meaning because it was my first tattoo, and I got it with my sister. I also got my second one with Mel, so I don’t feel so bad about removing my first one. The moral of the story is, if you get a tattoo, make sure it has meaning or you really like it and can hide it if you have to; because getting them removed is worse than actually getting them!!!
Then, this morning, I spoke at my meeting, and got this:
I talked to my awesome Mom today for awhile, since I am working tomorrow, and tomorrow is Mother’s Day! I love my Mom, and am SO blessed to have her as a best friend in life! She has done amazing things by putting up with me all of these years, and raising a pretty decent daughter (even though I always had this thing where I didn’t like to listen….lol!) She somehow got through to me, and I turned out pretty well; so thanks Mom! I love and miss you!!! I will still probably call you tomorrow, too . Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!!
Ms. Tater Tot and I went on a very short walk this afternoon. It is SO HOT!
Come on weather! It’s only May, it can’t be summer yet! I still have to figure out how to be a morning person so I can run early in the morning before it gets hot! Gosh…anyone have any pointers on how to become a morning person? At least a running in the morning person??? I’m still stuck in a rut on this one….
Are you a morning or a night person?
Have you overcome the hereditary tendency to not be a morning person?
Have a wonderful weekend, and Happy Trails!
