|Cub and my nephew ready for wacky Wednesday at soccer camp.|
On Thursday, we went to a Cincinnati Reds game. We had great weather (thank God!) and the high was only 78 degrees. Last year we went and foolishly bought tickets in advance for a noon game in July. Bad Idea. It was 105 degrees and humid. It was awful...since then the boys associate baseball games with heat. But not for us last Thursday! It was great!!! My mom wasn't looking forward to it and she ended up being the one who loved it the most! We had great tix (thanks stubhub!) on the first base line, so we could actually see Joey Votto! I was a bit freaked out about foul balls and we didn't have any until the 8th inning and one came down 2 rows behind us and nailed this guy in the temple (apparently didn't see it coming- my total nightmare). There was blood everywhere- thank goodness a Dr was walking up the steps and saw it and came to the rescue. Yuck. DH kept the boys occupied so they would watch since there was so much blood. Poor guy, I hope he's ok.
As for running: I got my tempo run in on Friday. Had to do it between soccer camp and the pool playdate so it was in the middle of the day, so hello treadmill! 5 miles in 38 minutes. I'm pretty happy about it since I felt amazingly strong during the whole run.
|Before my 10 miler- trust me you don't want to see after!|
So, I know some of you are reading this...so post a comment! What did you do this summer vacation? Anyone do a Staycation like us?
