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:
