Oh What a Wonderful Weekend

This past weekend was such a terrific weekend!  I ran a 5K race down in Del Mar with Lisa on Saturday, which was so much fun!  She is actually going to write the recap which will be posted on my blog later this week!!
The weather was gorgeous…sunny, warm between 75-80 degrees, bright blue skies without a cloud to be seen.  My little bro surprised my mom and came home for the weekend from college, so we hung out Saturday after I got back from Del Mar.  We cruised down to 2nd street to watch the very intense Game 3 of the Lakers v. Jazz series.  We down almost the entire game…they were on fire and we were ice cold.  Finally Fisher and Artest were making money shots, sinking 3 after 3 after 3 (Ron made 4 out of 5 in a row!) and Fish sank a deep 3-pointer that was clutch from 2-3 feet behind the line!  The Jazz had a chance to win but missed the shot, and we won by the one point!  Needless to say, we were on the edge of our seats.
Sunday, we cooked mom breakfast in bed and relaxed, then I went for a 2.5 mile run.  My legs were so heavy they felt like they were either made of steel or stuck in mud.  Unfortunately, Sunday didn’t bring nearly as nice weather as Saturday, and during my run it was humid, overcast, and the wind picked up and I was running right into it.  I felt blah.  After my not-so-great run, I got ready and my Dad, bro, and I took Mom and Grammie out to a Mother’s Day dinner overlooking the ocean. By this time, the clouds had dissipated and the sun graced us with its presence.  We had a blast and laughed all evening long.  Mom and Grammie loved their presents too :)  It was a wonderful Mother’s Day and I am so blessed to have such a wonderful and inspiring mother and grandmother.

This morning I had the hardest time getting to work. Apparently there was a shooting at the crack of dawn this morning on Ocean and Pine, so the police had many of the streets blocked off in attempts to find the murderer.  Of course the streets that were blocked off were all leading towards my building, so I ended up parking far away and walking in.  Well, there’s a little cardio for you…running to work in heels.
As for training, today was a stretch and strengthen day.  After work I lifted weights and worked out my core.  A 3-miler is on the schedule for tomorrow!



  1. Sounds like a great weekend!
    Not so great Monday morning though...ugh.

  2. Great photo of the family Mags! Hope you had a great Mother's Day.
