Weekend update: 8.11.2013

Friday after work I played a doubles match! I am in a just-for-fun league and have been playing doubles this round and this is actually the first match I’ve been able to play in! It was fun and the ladies that I played with were so nice. Emmalynn and Sarah are just the sweetest and came to watch me play for a bit. It was fun to have some people cheering me on from the sidelines!

After my match I went and met Jeremy for a low-key evening of dinner and watching Suits. It was nice to just hang out and relax. I’ve decided that I need to get serious about this marathon training business so for the next 12 weeks my Friday nights are going to be pretty quiet.

Saturday morning I woke up at 6 am so I could be out to meet my running group by 7. Goodness. 6am is EARLY. Earlier than I get up during the week to go to work (although this is going to be changing starting next week)! I am seriously struggling to be motivated to run and train for this marathon. If anyone has any encouraging words of wisdom, send them my way!! I managed to get in 7 miles and wasn’t completely dead by the end so that’s good right?!

Saturday afternoon stage 5 of the Tour of Utah bike race ran right past my house so I convinced Jane to come watch it with me!! We got slurpees and watched on the curb as the bikers sped on right past up as and up the huge hill on Wasatch. Those bikers are insane and so fun to watch!

Saturday night we went to dinner and a wedding reception with Matt and Caroline. It was so fun to see Jodi and Paul and celebrate with them!!

Sunday was just a normal Sunday. Slept in. Lounged around. Went to church. Had dinner.Watched Step Up Revolution with my mamma.

Up Ahead
This week should be a good one! Up ahead is the Scarlet Pimpernel at the Scera, a fun birthday dinner, tennis, another wedding reception, and more running! I can’t believe we’re into the second week of August already! Ack!
