Whoops

Today was as productive of a day as you can hope for.  I got to work early and got to leave early, a great perk of my job.  Once all the patients are seen, you are out of there!  I headed to the farmers market and got a TON of great stuff and the lady even gave me my own basket to keep and use every week because I come to them every time.

I headed home, put my stuff away and hung out for a bit, letting the temperature drop before heading for a run.  The humidity was like night and day difference yesterday to today.  I barely made it through three miles yesterday afternoon and felt pathetic but today’s tempo run went fantastic.  It’s incredible what being able to breathe can do for you!

After getting back and showering quickly Casey and I jetted out to meet some friends for burger night at our favorite place, The Craftsman.  I insisted on riding bikes and Casey really wasn’t feeling it, he wanted to drive.  I got on my high horse about the benefits of living down town and not being lazy, on and on.  We weren’t a half mile from the house before Casey’s chain came off his bike.  Then right when we paid the check it started pouring rain.  Then on the way home, my chain came off my bike.  All the while Casey is looking at me with his, “na, na, na, na, boo, boo. I told you so” face.  Needless to say, next time I want to bike anywhere over a mile away I’m going to lose the battle.

Otherwise it was a great dinner.  I had such a great time catching up with MB and Cassie while the boys talked football of course.  But now I am pooped and I have to run before work tomorrow because we are going to dinner for the PT that I am replacing’s going away dinner.  Bed time for this girl!!

Off the Plan

Today was a crazy busy day that shouldn’t have been.  I only had my seminar class this morning and went to see a patient for an hour and those were my only obligations.  However, I was gone all day and barely got anything productive done!

After doing a bunch of errands and finally getting ready to sit down to get some work done, Casey asked if I wanted to take Scarlett to the beach, which of course is wayyy more fun than doing case studies so of course I said yes.

I took my camera and took a ton of pictures.  Scarlett absolutely looooves the beach so you can tell she is super excited in all of them!

Guys, I know where we are going, HURRY UP!!

We didn’t end up getting home until it was dark and Casey was too hungry to run with me so for the first time in 17 weeks I missed a run.  It was only 4 miles and we walked on the beach for about an hour so I think I am good.  Especially this close to the race.

We also didn’t feel like cooking so we threw on some clothes and headed to a place called The Craftsman.  The food was really good and they have a ton of beers.  They offer 8 or 16 oz sizes which is awesome.  I really just wanted to taste one and the 8 oz size was perfect for me.

The food was fantastic and was fairly in expensive which is great (and rare in Charleston).    I also didn’t feel super unhealthy when we left, as I often do leaving restaurants.

Anyone have super awesome Labor Day weekend plans?
