I had a great weekend!!

Woke up early Sat am to go for a 50 min jog around the neighborhood - IN THE RAIN!! And - I DIDN'T melt!! Imagine that...lol I loved it - and can you believe even though of course I was blasting the iPod, I was humming "singin in the rain" as I merrily chugged along!! lol It was funny - people were driving past me looking at me like I lost my marbles! Thought of some catchy rainy jog lyrics as I went on my way...was giggling to myself all the while...
"I'm joggin in the rain, I'm joggin in the rain.
These people lookin at me think that I've gone insane!
I haven't lost my brain...
I'm sparkin all the same...
I'm joggin...in...the RAIN!"

Don't worry, I won't be quitting my day job any time soon!! lol

Saturday night - I attended a really fun baby shower in which I once again completely anhialated my competition in the "baby bottle drinking game"...*blushing* well...let's just put it this way; I had every last drop GONE while they all had 3/4 still remaining!! Won some Victoria's Secret smell-goods, so all is fair in baby shower gaming war! lol

Sunday, dh and I decided to have a date day...we took a drive up the coast on Hwy 1 to a little town called Marina near Monterey...we had to pick up something for my helmet he found on CraigsList, so we decided to make a day of it. Dh knows the beach is my favorite place in the world...We had such a blast trying to knock each other over in the sand as we ran like crazy people up and down the sand dunes - we were laughing hysterically! All this, in the rain! We got in over an hour of beach time running and walking in the sand, so you KNOW I added that in my tracker!!! We got to watch the surfers out catching the waves and all!! I loooove surfers...(shhh) and am even more determined to try it soon!

Here are some pics:

Me in my glamorous hood! lol

Laughing our a's off!

Check out that awesome tube action!

OMG - SURFERS!!!!!!!!

Drumroll, please...I saved my fave pic for last!

Oh yeah!! AND - Joey took 4th in his weight division at his very fist wrestling tourney this past Sat, too!!! A friend of mine took a video so hopefully I'll be able to make him a YouTube star with background music and all! I'm so happy for him, and I told him that now that he knows what to expect, he will only get better and better with each tourney!!! I'm his #1 fan, of course!!!

That's it, for now!!
Gonna make this week a GREAT one and plan to hit up Core Rhythms tonight after work!

    Good for you guys. Looks like some terrific "US" time; AND you got in some conditioning. You're my hero. Glad to see someone besides me loves running in the rain. I just put on a thick sweat shirt, grab my MP3 player (books on tape you know) and off I go.

    Terrific to hear your son is doing so well in wrestling. While I was never a very good wrestler, when I was going to CAL POLY (Vaughn Hitchcock was the Coach back then), I had some close friends who were and (you'll have to look this up) I was in the stands when Cal Poly beat Iowa and DAN GABLE ending Iowa's record dual meet win streak - this was easily the most exciting sporting event I ever personally attended. A friend of mine, the Heavy Weight Wrestler for Poly, Pinned his Iowa Opponent to secure the win.

    Anyway, wish your son continued good luck!

    Love the pics!! Good for you, running in the rain and on sand yet. Way to go!!

    You are so lucky to live near the ocean and in such a great climate. I live in the frozen north, brrr, and hate it. Maybe some day I will live near the ocean and where it is warm.

    You ran for 50 minutes?!?!?!? HOLY CRAP GIRL! I can't believe that. You are amazing!

    What a fun trip to Monterey you guys had. I am dying to learn to surf myself but it's a little too chilly for my liking.

    How impressive that you did this all in the rain! I've gotten used to doing everything in the rain, but it's not nearly as fun!

    Way to go, lady...you are so awesome! Have a fabulous week!

    I've never ran in the rain but I've read that it's an incredible feeling, an empowerment like you can conquer anything!
