Thursday something exciting happened. If you're a runner, you will understand.
New Shoes!!!!!! Newton Shoes are something I've been wanting to try for a while so I'm so excited they arrived at my door step. I'll give you an update on these beauties when I've ran in them some more.
I had to try them on right away, even with my work pants on.
On Saturday I got up in the wee hours of the morning to get out to the PaceSetters Fox Cities Marathon training run. It was warm, humid and I knew instantly it was going to be a rough run when I woke up that morning feeling like I was hung over when I didn't drink any alcohol the night before (shocker!). I like these training runs because they actually have water and gatorade stations set up along the course route and those can be so helpful now that the temps are staying pretty warm.
Saturday was also Mike's birthday so after the training run, I headed to a bakery that Mike loves the donuts from and bought 8 donuts, for the 4 of us. Yes, we are gluttons.
We got a sitter on Saturday night and went out to drink some alcohol.

I didn't do a great job documenting the evening but I managed about 6 unusable pictures of Lish and I because I really suck at taking selfies when I've had a couple drinks.
Sunday we all know was Fathers day so not only did I have Mike's birthday but also Fathers day so I basically had to be an awesome wife all weekend. It was rough but I think I made it through good without and of my normal bitchy wifeness.
We went to my parents for a cook out and managed to gain a couple more pounds from all the food. I made cupcakes. And now I have like a dozen left over to eat the rest of the day.
The girls went swimming for the first time in my parents pool so that's all they cared about.
Aubri was not allowed to go swimming and that made her sad.
Kids having a dance party.
And then we finished the day off with the summer fun run for the kids. It's an awesome run that basically the kids have to run either 1/4 or 1/2 and then get pizza, dilly bars, cookies, fruit etc after. It's such a fun event and my girls really look forward to it.
Overall it was a great weekend. This week will be a little off. I will be traveling later in the week and the temps for where I am going are supposed to be just under 100 degrees. I'm really unsure of how I will get my long run in with those temps when I'm not used to that at all. We'll see what happens!
