How has your weekend been? It has been a busy & wonderful weekend over here. Friday night, we had our dinner party. The food turned out great (both my lasagnas and the dishes our guests brought as appetizers, sides & desserts). I used a Rachael Ray recipe for the Mexican Lasagna and used the ricotta filling from this recipe for the Italian Lasagna. I made my own version of the meat sauce.
On Saturday, I headed up to my parents to visit and so that I could be closer to the Diva Half Marathon that I ran this morning. Kaylin, my Mom, and I headed to the expo:
Then we went for a walk:
and went to dinner with my Dad, Aunt & Uncle:
I had shrimp and more shrimp:
Bedtime reading with Pop Pop:
This morning, it was race time:
The race started at 7:
I started with the 8 minute pacer, figuring I would drop back when it got to be too much. Thanks to her awesome spirit, and the enthusiasm of two other runners, we all finished in under 8 minutes!!! My official time was 1 hour 43 minutes 14 seconds! A 7 minute 53 second pace! A BIG thank you to our 8 minute pacer:
They had lots of water, fruit, bagels, and cookies (??) at the finish line:
Such a great day! A HUGE thank you to my parents for watching Kaylin during the race and for letting me crash at their house. Tell me about your weekend?
I’m ready to eat and spend lots of time with Josh & Kaylin :)!!
