I took it easy again this week. I knew it would be a crazy busy weekend, with a race and lots of events, and I didn’t see the point of driving myself crazy with the running schedule.’
Sunday – rest
Our dear friend gave us tickets to see the Jaguars vs Browns game at Everbank Field, and we were happy to spend the day, enjoying the game and the gorgeous weather. It was also the first game the Jags won all season, so we considered ourselves extra lucky.
Monday – 3.1 miles
I felt super incredibly fast today. And it was a great feeling! I loved it!
Tuesday – rest
I spent the morning at a Box Tops counting party at one of my PTA friend’s houses. It was nice to sit and chat with some of the other moms. Later on, I worked concessions for little man’s baseball team. It was kind of a late night, but I’m glad to give back when I can.
Wednesday – rest
This Wednesday was a slow day all the way around. I worked on cleaning the house and finishing up some of the Halloween decorations.
Thursday – 3.1 miles
Another flying kind of day. I am loving all this chilly weather. It’s giving me wings!
Friday – rest
Little man had the day off, so we slept in a little, and then just spent some time hanging out. There were errands to be run, and we met up with the grandparents for lunch and to get our packets for Sunday’s race. (LOVED these shirts!)
Afterwards, little man went to batting practice and after a sushi dinner, we carved one of our Halloween pumpkins.
I think it’s appropriate 🙂
Saturday – rest
We had some plans for Saturday. After little man’s baseball game, he went off to his grandparents for the night and we packed our things for a night downtown. Mr PugRunner wanted to enjoy a nice dinner, and then not have to rush to the starting line, so it made sense to stay closer to the race.
Dinner was divine. We ate at Black Sheep for the first time, and loved the rooftop dining.
The service and food was exceptional. We enjoyed some delicious wine, delicious fried olives with homemade pimiento cheese and salt and vinegar chips with a yummy fondue dip. Mr PugRunner had some kind of pork shank with smashed cauliflower and I devoured their take on shrimp and grits, garnished with pickled veggies. Yum.
The sunset was unbelievable.
We will definitely be returning.
Afterwards, we took a cab to BB’s, which was right by our hotel. They have great dinner, and exceptional desserts, and Mr. PugRunner and I splurged a bit.
I couldn’t even make a dent in this Boston Cream Pie inspired cake. I figured that since we were walking back to our hotel and had a 10 mile race in the morning, it could fall under “carb-loading.”
So, all in all, a rather down week. That’s about to change, though 🙂
When you do date nights, do you prefer trying new places or going to old favorites?
Do you carve pumpkins for Halloween? Do you go more traditional or try to get fancy?
