Guess what today is....

It's my BIRTHDAY! Woohooo! Yes, this runner girl has reached the ripe old age of 21...again! Ummm, NOT! Thank you to Bill for being the 1st to recognize that!

This morning was our big quarterly meeting at work, so I had a yummy breakfast. Immediately afterwards, my boss and I had a lunch networking meeting at Saltgrass Steakhouse, then returned to the office where a b-day cake was waiting for me. Next, I am heading to eat with my parents, hubby and kiddo. So yes, this day has been centered around eating, eating and more eating....not exactly great for the WW plan. At least not great when you throw the WW plan out the window. Sigh! Tomorrow, I'll be back on plan. Tonight, I'm having a margarita!

Last night, I ran 3 miles easy on the treadmill. I felt stiff for the 1st 12 minutes, but after that it felt great to run. I forgot to mention that on Sunday, the shin was silent!

Not. a. peep.

I don't know if it was the Aleve or the adrenaline. Maybe it was both. However last night, with neither of those things in my system, it protested again. Loudly. After the run, I iced it down and took an Aleve.

Happy Birthday, and congrats on the race last weekend! Sorry I didn't see you--spent most of the time looking at the watch, so I didn't really see anyone who didn't get my attention first. Hope you had a great day!
