July 4th Flags

It was a good fourth of July weekend! My entire street and the surrounding streets were covered by flags on flags! I apologize, I know I’ve been MIA for a while. I just got so bogged down by work for teaching that I never felt I had time to post and still remain sane! Anyway, I’m sure most of you would agree that the three day weekend was magnificent (happy birthday Amurica!) and even better news is that I will be on summer break after one more week (I decided to teach summer school for 2 weeks).

This weekend I actually used my GPS watch a lot! I ran 45 to 55 minutes each day to train for the San Francisco Nike Half Marathon I’ll be running in October. I’ve ran over 13 miles before for cross country practice in high school, but it’s been a while. I thought I’d share my mile splits to keep me motivated and maybe motivate some of y’all! Here they are:

Thursday, the 3rd in suburbia (mainly grass):
7.3

Friday, the 4th at the Wetlands (all dirt):
7.4

Sunday, the 6th at the Wetlands (all dirt):
7.6

Monday, the 7th in suburbia (grass mainly):
7.7

I also made up for all of those burned calories by eating this ginormous mud pie from Red Robin… whoops!

What did you do for the 4th of July weekend?
Did anyone make any festive desserts or get their run/workout on?
