Fun times and strong headwinds!!

I was stressing a little about fitting my runs/workouts in since I am down the beach with my boys but Uncle Bob to the rescue!  My parents and Uncle are neighbors at the beach so he watched out for my boys while I squeezed in a quick run.  My uncle is the person responsible for getting me into running!  He was a marathoner and distance runner for years and we had some great runs together.  My boys just adore him and his dog Boo so I was able to run without worries.  I ran 5 miles in 37 mins and felt pretty great.  The boys and I had a fantastic day on the beach and we got skim boarding lessons from some awesome boarders!  I was too nervous to break a leg or hip so I just observed.  I asked my guys what they felt like for dinner and this is what the picked:


They are so my kids!!  We had amazing sushi and sat on the rooftop patio that hovers above a Koi pond.  This was a great meal with my two little men.

Tuesday was a rest day with some stellar boogie boarding!  Angel and her little people came down for the day/night and we couldn't have been more excited to have them!  We spent the whole day on the beach and had a blast.  I feel so lucky to have such great positive friends in my world and such awesome kids to hang out with my boys.  I love these little guys and girl:

As trying as parenting can be these smiling faces make it all worth it!  We had a great dinner and some fun on the boardwalk.

Angel and I took turns running on Wednesday morning but my God was it windy!!  The first 3.5 miles felt like I had a parachute attached to my butt because of the strong headwind...the last 3.5 felt great!  I did an extra half a mile cool down at the end for a total of 7.5 miles in 60 mins.  While Angel was getting her headwind on me and her little  two were relaxing by the bay and making shadow art:

Loving life!

Happy Running!
