Oh yeah, it was the hilliest freaking run I have done, ever. There were zero flat areas and way more up-hills than down.
I don't have any pictures of it for you. I am bad about bringing my phone with me on runs. I hate to carry stuff in my hands while running, so I'll have to drive the route at another time to snap some pics for the blog.
The only good thing about this super hilly route is that there was next to no traffic. I think we saw 5 cars. We did have another group of runners behind us for a while and they were starting to catch up with us but then went in a different direction. I always run faster when there are other runners around. Who else does this?
Whatever gets those legs moving faster! lol
So for the rest of the day Elijah and I:
- Went to Sunday School together
- Planted some flowers in my gardens and watered them
- Watched the Green Lantern
- Baked chocolate chip cookies
- Did a few loads of laundry
- Prepared dinner for Daddy to cook
Yummy cookie dough
"Can I eat all of this mom?"
Such a good helper :)
Eating one more spoonful of
Noah is home from his weekend @ his mom's place and Daddy stole a cookie as soon as he saw them!
Fresh out of the shower :)
Dad brought home ice cream
... so they just had to have
cookies & ice cream together
Yum! This is the life.
Elijah thinks the Jack & the Beanstalk rhyme goes like this:
"Fe, Fi, Fo Fum! I smell the blood of an english muffin!"
I caught him repeating this over an over while rolling around on his bed pretending to try and escape from the giant. He didn't know I was watching and it was sooooo funny!
What did you do this weekend?
