Quick Update- cuz it's Friday!!!

Instead of my usual drawn-out blabber that I am sure you allllll love to read soooo much, I'm gonna do a quick rundown of the last 24 hours and then sign off 'till Monday.  I don't think I will have access to my laptop while we're gone (he already said its a no) so I apologize in advance if I don't get to check in with all of you over the weekend.  I'll update my FB status on the secret location and fill you in on the details (well, most of them :)  ) on Monday.

I left work early yesterday, around 12:30 to head home and get my long run in.  I had major tummy issues and waited until about 2:30 before we headed over to the Los Gatos Creek Trail to get it in.  Love this trail, it's all uphill on the way out and downhill on the way back which gave me a 3 min negative split!  Love it!

13 miles  1:43:46 - 7:59/mi pace.  I hit the 8 mile mark at just over 1:04:00 and I felt great.  When we finished I could have kept going.  The weather was perfect, shorts and my sports bra.  I puffy heart NorCal January weather :)

When we finished I was starved!  So he suggested we grab some dinner and then pick up the pooch.  He really wanted to get home and get out of his bike shorts but I choose to stay in my clothes and just get the eating over with!  I decided to invite my rents with me because I knew I wouldn't see them today.  Big fail on my part for not taking a shower when he suggested it like a bizillion times!  When we got to my parents they weren't ready yet so we had to go in which was a huge annoyance on my part!  I was hungry, didn't they know I just ran 13 miles!  So I got out of the car and headed in and much to my SURPRISE, the hubbs planned a surprise party for me!  I was shocked!  Everyone was there!  The MIL, the BFF and her hubbs, my Bro and SIL and nephew came in from Sac, my auntie and Uncle, another good girlfriend and of course, the sister and her new BF, the rents and Ari.  I was soooo surprised!  And mad he didn't insist more that I take a shower!  I was a mess but sooo excited to see everyone.  He did good - I never suspected a thing!

We had fondue, my favorite, choco cake and my favorite beer.  Just perfect.  The hubbs did good!  Thanks Ari if you're reading.  He really helped me while I ran that afternoon - I had to stop a couple of times since my tummy was acting up but he kept the encouragement coming and I finished strong!  And, the b-day party.  It was pefect! 

So I have a quick work day and then we're off to "who knows where?"  No one at the party knows where we're going and it was killing them all, too!  I'll fill ya all in on the flip side with pics and details!

To all you peeps racing this week or tackling the long run, good luck!
Happy Friday peeps and Happy Running!

Happy Birthday Katie! Hubbs did so well on the party that I can't wait to hear about your weekend!

As for your gym post from below, I have had it up to my eye balls with 24 hour fitness. I'm about ready to throw in the towel on that one. They are the pushiest people that I have ever delt with.

That's too cool that your hubby planned a surprise party like that! Did they know you didn't shower or could they could tell that you'd just been running?

Anyway, enjoy your weekend trip! Sounds like an awesome adventure. By the way, my wife's favorite birthday trip/present ever was when I planned a weekend trip and I didn't tell her where we were going until we were on the way. It went very well, and I'm sure this will be a great experience for you as well.

Heidi said...

That is so sweet! Though I think my hubby would have pushed me pretty hard on the shower. He probably would have told me I stunk - hahhaa.

Hope you have a great little trip ... wherever it is off to.
