I had the best weekend, and I want to tell you all about it!
Thursday evening, my boyfriend Zack came into town for a weekend visit. I took the day off Friday so we could have lots of time together. First up on the Friday morning agenda was to go to Brianna’s (Zack’s sister) and see his nieces.
After a perfect morning with the cutest little girls in town, we headed downtown to shop for costumes and see Paranormal Activity 3 (scarrry). Next stops included dinner with family, a trip to the haunted houses and a night cap at a (very smoky) local bar.
Saturday morning came WAY too fast and it was time for me to run my longest distance ever – 18 miles! Stacy and I started at a pretty slow pace and it felt good. I could still feel the pain from last Sunday’s half marathon though. By mile 12 I was really getting sore, especially in my booty and hammy’s. The last 6 miles went by pretty slow…I am praying that the next long run isn’t as hard as that one was. However that one will definitely include proper hydration and 8 hours of sleep the night before.
Following the run, Zack and I had a BIG breakfast and watched some scary movies. Then it was time to get ready for the evening festivities. Zack and I decided to go as a scary couple this year. He was Lucifer and I was his dark angel. What a fun night we had – but angel wings can be quite difficult to wear in a crowded bar!
On Sunday, we went to Zack’s parents for a chili cook off contest. I made a yummy white chili (which was actually a really healthy recipe), but unfortunately did not win the contest. There is always next year!
This morning I had to say bye to Zack, which totally sucks. I won’t see him until Christmas, but I am praying the time goes by fast. I have a ton of fun things planned between now and then (stay tuned for more details on those), so it should help pass the time. Long distance relationships are no fun at all, but I know it won’t stay this way forever.
Wishing everyone a Happy Halloween! BOO!
