First off, Happy Father’s Day to all those wonderful fathers out there! Especially mine and my father-in-law!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend! After over 4 years, we finally both spent the weekend back at my in-laws beach house.

It was so wonderful to be back. It’s so peaceful here and it was a great time of relaxing with family.


Saturday morning started out with my long run. After a thunderstorm the night before it was almost 80% humidity here this morning. I was completely drenched in sweat only 2 miles in. I knew it was going to be a pretty long run.

11 Miles

I ended up completing 11 miles at an 8:33 average pace. Even though the humidity was crazy I kept a pretty steady pace. I got a little lost and missed a turn I had planned, but it ended up working out!

We spent most of the morning sitting out on the dock and enjoying the gorgeous weather while it lasted. We knew they were calling for storms again in the afternoon, so we soaked up the sun while we could.


Our morning and afternoon included:

Kayaking <– My arms are going to be sore in the morning!



Teaching Zoe how to get out on the dock.

Zoe on the Dock

For some reason she hates walking on anything that she can see threw or that doesn’t have some sort of railing. She eventually got the hang of it!


It was so nice to just sit back, talk a little and relax. I couldn’t have asked for a better Saturday.

Sleepy Dog

Zoe was so tired once the day was over! Poor thing. After we washed up we headed out to eat dinner and go and see Edge of Tomorrow. A great end to a great day!

Today we are heading back around noon. We are dropping the pup off at our house and then heading on to have dinner about 45 minutes away with my dad. The fun continues!

I have another workout planned, but not quite sure what my schedule will end up being.


This week went pretty well. My body is slowly adjusting to the heat which is a good thing since it looks like the week ahead isn’t going to be cooling down any.


It will only make me stronger!


How did your training go this week?

Got any Father’s Day plans?.
