Holy Hill, Monday!

April 18, 2011

Happy Monday Everyone!

How was your day today? Mine was pretty great (for a monday) 🙂

It started off with watching Boston. How crazy was that! I’m sad Kara didn’t win:/ but she will have other races. And how about Desi!? That was SO close.

Anyways, after watching Boston and eatin’ some breakfast, I went out for a challenging run myself. Hayes Hill on a clear day

I got lost on my way there, and ended up putting in more miles then I had planned. Once I got to the hill, I gave it all I had and pretty much maxed myself out.

Anyone ever watch full house?!? because one of those is the Tanners !

After running down the hill, I was done for the day, and luckily I knew where I was and could take a shortcut home. A shortcut that went right past my all time favorite coffee shop!
When I got home I was starving, so I popped some lunch in the microwave and took a quick shower. After I was clean, I refueled with…..
Old photo of some quinoa, hummus, balsamic, and raisins…I was too hungry to take a photo of the one I had today!
After I had controlled the hunger beast I had
Apple Pie Larabar

After I was done with my yummy lunch, I cracked down on some homework, mailed out the scones from Katie’s Bake Sale to support Japan, and cleaned up a little bit.

Then I took myself out on a little movie date to see
   Soul Surfer. It was actually pretty good, and not gonna lie I cried. I remember when Bethany’s accident happened. It was just after I had gotten really really into surfing. My mother would have to drag me away from the water! When I heard about her story, I was moved. She was my hero. I remember writing her a letter, telling her how inspirational she was to me and how she was my hero. Kinda forgot how obsessed I was with her until this movie reminded me.
The real Bethany…..She is the pure definition of a fighter.

That about does it for Monday, for me. I’m so sleepy. I gotta get up early for some XT before class!

Did you watch Boston?

How was your Monday?

Did you have any childhood heros?

    That is a massive hill, good job! I haven’t seen Soul Surfer yet but I’m looking forward to it. I remember hearing about it after it happened and felt horrible for her.
