This morning started off with me running the Veterans Day 5K here in Sierra Vista. It was my first race here in Arizona – very well-organized and tons of volunteers! I completed the course in 31:13, good enough for 3rd in the 30-39 age group for females!!!! They had really cool medals, and it even has the place, age group, race name, and date on the back of it!! I got a massage after the race and that was a nice treat – even better since it was free! Then I headed home and relaxed for a little bit before heading back out for my scheduled 15 mile run. I didn’t figure I’d do the full 15 miles, but I only made it 5.73 miles in 1:13:18. My body was kind of like – "uh, what are you doing??? You just ran a race. No more." LOL
Once I got home, Ryan left shortly after to go for a bike ride with his friends. I relaxed for a while and the Robert and I got ready to make cookies. As we were getting the ingredients out, I realized that we didn’t have brown sugar or vanilla, so we headed to the store. Then we got home and had a successful attempt number 2. Robert did a great job helping me, even breaking the eggs and not getting any shell in them. While the cookies were baking, I got one of the wedding cross stitch things finished into a little ornament. We also walked and got the mail. Finally I got to sit down and stitch for a little while and I finished the back stitching on the 3rd wedding thing. Then I got the cookies packed up and Robert and I headed to R & M’s for their wedding reception. Ryan met us there a little later when he got home. There were a lot of people there and M had made a ton of food. I was even adventurous and tried different kinds of cheeses. They weren’t bad, but I still think I’ll stick with my favorites. Everyone really liked my cookies. We stayed for a while and then headed home to get cleaned up and Robert to bed. I’m heading there as well.
