And just like that, school is out and it’s summer vacation. It doesn’t really feel too much like summer because our schedule is crazy packed. Correction: A’s schedule is crazy packed. We are just along for the ride.

Oh, Sunday. I was a little emotional this week. Last Sunday of middle school, right?
But we didn’t have time to dwell on that! We had a birthday celebration planned for our friend K at the Secret Tiki Temple! If you are ever in town, make reservations to go. It is the most fun experience ever. Guests must have a password to get in, and from there, it’s just all good times with fun Chinese appetizers and outrageously delicious tiki cocktails.
We let our server choose our drinks, and he nailed it every single time (the menu doesn’t show ingredients, so you just have to trust the process).
- Cardio: Memorial Day 5K
I will share my race report this week or next, but I got up to head out to this favorite 5K on my own. It was miserably hot and humid, and while it was not my best time, it was not a personal worst. With how much I’ve been struggling lately, I will take those wins.
The rest of the day was pretty chill. We watched movies at home and grilled burgers and hot dogs for dinner. Nothing fancy.
- Cardio: 6.32 miles, running + walking
Not much to say. We went. We ran. We walked.
Ok, Ok. Hear me out. We went back to the Secret Tiki Temple with the PTSO. I didn’t plan it that way, but I certainly didn’t mind. My liver did, but it’s not often that I drink a lot of cocktails, so I’ll give myself a pass. We had a beautiful night, celebrating the end of the year.
- Cardio: 4.16 miles, walking
Was morning hard? Yes. It was. But it was Global Running Day so I had to get up and get moving!
I walked, and then ran a little on the beach. Yay me.
Thanks to Carianne for putting together this amazing collage of all the amazing blogs folks who ran together virtually this day!
- Cardio: 5.92 miles, running + walking
Effort has not been the best, so today, I forced myself to push it. I was proud of my effort, and need to keep it up.
Happy last day of school to A. Here are his first day and last day of 8th grade photos. I can’t believe how much he has matured over just one school year.
We took him to Top Golf and for milkshakes at The Yard to celebrate.
- Cardio: 4.72 miles, walking
Happy National Donut Day! You know this is one of my favorite days!
Check out all my favorite donuts here.
After lunch, we went to our friend’s beach rental, and just spent the day chilling with the families. We celebrated the end of school at an awesome oceanfront restaurant and called it a perfect day.

Another hot solo run. I gritted my teeth and got it done.
My parents had us over for lunch and we spent a lovely afternoon with them. We are so grateful that they are so close.
Goal-getting + Thoughts
Nothing super new or exciting, I guess. While I’m certainly failing at cross training, I am drinking a lot more water than usual. Yay.
We don’t have major plans for the next few months. A is volunteering at karate camp for two weeks, and then has his Scouts camp and band camp. He also has an online course to complete this summer. I’m pondering some local things to do. I feel like I want to start adventuring again 🙂
I am linking up with the Weekly Rundown, with Confessions of A Mother Runner and Running on the Fly! Check them out!
How was your week in training? Do you have any summer plans? Ever been to a tiki bar?
OK that Tiki restaurant sounds like fun 🙂
You had a strong week – way to keep that streak going!
It was a blast!
Oh boy- those hot, humid runs after the nights out at the Tiki Temple sound brutal! I’m glad you’re drinking more water. Overall it sounds like a fun week- i can’t believe I forgot about donut day!
A really did change a lot this year! Middle school is like that. Now he looks like a high schooler!
I was not living my best life on that run. Ugh!
He does look like a high schooler! I can’t believe it!

Sometimes just finishing a race is a win. Esp in the heat.
Can’t believe I forgot National Donut day!
And that milkshake!!!!
Those donuts look delish!
Your photos make me want to go to the beach. Maybe in August ….

I’d love a Tiki restaurant like that (but they don’t exist in small-town Iowa). My summer is gonna be pretty low-key, other than a handful of “short” runs but plenty of biking 😉
Kim G says
Always a blast to run with everyone virtually on Global Running Day! I am glad that we all find a way to connect on that day.
Sorry to hear that it was so hot and humid for the Memorial Day 5K 🙁 But it sounds like you had a great rest of the day sending time with family and relaxing.
Looks like another fun week! That Tiki restaurant sounds so fun and so tropical!!! I know the running is tough for you right now. Just keep moving. You know how it goes…
Yesterday one of the women I ran with did that race over the bridges in Jacksonville that you did! Sounds awesome.
You’re doing great getting out there in the heat & humidity! And drinking more water is great too. Sometimes thos little things have a way of snowballing!

That restaurant does sound fun! I had my first taste of alcohol since that tiramisu dessert my husband got from the supermarket last year at my friend’s hen brunch the other weekend. But I do miss the odd cocktail, I must admit! Well done for getting those runs in – I managed to run four times last week and still miss Global Running Day as usual …

A tiki bar with a password – it makes me think for prohibition days. LOL
I bet your summer will fly by with A’s activities keeping you busy. Enjoy!
Stacie Seidman says
That Tiki place sounds like so much fun! I don’t blame you for going twice!
Congrats to A on finishing middle school!

Looks likes a really fun week! Other than cycling, I am failing at cross training too. Weights? What are those? haha! What a fun time at the Tiki place! You guys have a lot of fun social events!!
