So, it's my birthday today. I'm 33 years old. On Friday I was asked if Sophie is my daughter or granddaughter. It really made me feel good. The dude said that he wondered if I was a young grandma. Um, yeah, never a good question to ask. It's like asking if someone is pregnant or just fat.
My half marathon was on Saturday. It was fun but I was a little sick with a cold (sore throat, cough, etc). And I'm used to people talking during the race. I guess now everyone thinks they have to wear headphones. Nobody talked. So that was a little boring. I should have brought my headphones. I finished in 2 hours and 3 minutes. My worst time ever. But not bad for being sick. By mile 4 my pelvis was aching (dang labor and delivery!). My minute/mile started around 7:51 and ended around 9:45. I'm happy though. I just wanted to finish.
Then Morgan ran the 1 mile race for kids. She said, "I'm winning! And so is everyone else!" She did so great. She ran the whole time except for the water break at the 1/2 mile point. I love her guts.
Then we went home and had a birthday party for her. If you follow me on Instagram (@theturquoisepiano) you probably know these things. We rented a bounce house, decorated cupcakes, played Duck, Duck, Goose, and opened presents. She had a great day.
Then I made a Barbie birthday cake for her family party on Sunday. I think it turned out well. I would have tried to do it with fondant but the last time I made fondant I got super sick for a week (not because of the fondant but now I associate it).
And here's Sophie. Just getting all big over here.
It's week 12 of my workout plans. If you've been doing them, great job! You should be stronger and leaner by now! I have one more "bonus" workout next week but your 12 week plan is finished.
Run, Elliptical, Bike, Hike... whatever! Just do it for 45 minutes 5-6 days this week.
