What a marvelous weekend!
On Friday I went to my baby brother’s kindergarten graduation! It made me remember when I did the exact same thing 😉
Then I went to my basketball team party which had some amazing food.
caesar salad, mac&cheese, Texas caviar, coleslaw, snickers salad
On Saturday I woke up early to meet my very first running group! I was so happy to discover that there’s a running group in my area. They were doing 8 miles but I only did 4 because of what was the next day 😉 They were all so nice, and I will definitely go every Saturday possible.
I quickly packed then left to meet my dad and stepmom to leave for Green Bay! We were going because my little brother turned 7 on Sunday. On the way down we stopped at Cousins Subs (my first time there) and I was very pleased.
We got there and headed to the National Railroad Museum. It was really neat, I learned a lot! Someday I want to go on a train ride. That would be so fun!
Then we went to Chuck E. Cheese. It was kind of weird. I used to have such a fun time there.. but I was kind of bored.
And then to dinner. I was starving! We went to Applebee’s. I ordered Chicken Broccoli Alfredo minus chicken extra broccoli.
It was delicious. And hot, I had to wait at least 5 minutes to eat it. Really hot.
Back to the hotel and some relaxing before bed! I was drained. I slept really well and was wide awake the next morning when I woke up for the 10k!
This was my first 10k ever (automatic PR 😉 ) so I was super excited! I had my toast with pb and banana then dad and I left for the race. It was freezing (48 degrees) and I didn’t bring anything but shorts so I would have to survive.
me and another kid racing at the end (I won)
I ended up with a 45:25. I was very pleased with that time! I won my age group and was 12th overall.
This race was organized so well. I’d definitely do it again. Actually, I’d’ like to do the triathlon that was going on at the same time. I couldn’t this year because I haven’t trained for one and wasn’t prepared at all. That was the major event. The 5k/10k was a side thing.
After the race they had a beautiful array of food. I have never been to a race that had pancakes and waffles. Now that is awesome. You bet I had about 3 plates. And they had massages- score!!
And then we all headed to the zoo. The NEW Zoo, to be exact. I feel like all zoo’s are the same, haha. It was neat, but I was pretty slow getting around. I liked sitting down.
And then we headed home. I napped the whole two hours. I literally dreamed about ice cream so when we got home I had to get some.
hot fudge, banana, nuts
I think ice cream is becoming its own food group. I’m okay with that.. 😉
On a sad note, my next year cross country coach got in a car accident this weekend and broke his sternum. He’s going to be okay, but I can’t imagine how this will affect his running. Please pray for him. ❤
So, my weekend in a nutshell! Of course a little bit more happened than this, but you don’t need to know every bit and piece. You’d get pretty bored 😉
What is the coolest museum you’ve ever been to?
What is your favorite sub shop? Favorite zoo animal?
Mountain lion or zebra.
Hope you’re having a fabulous Monday! I’m off to 8th Grade Recognition 😀
