Beat the Bridge and Salt Water

Flashback to last weekend…I ran the Beat the Bridge to Diabetes race in Seattle! It was a blast and an easy 8k. I did it at an average 8:30 minutes/mile and I was pooped by the end!

We ran for her cute little niece, Beckham. Hence the awesome red headbands!

After the race Cody and I did the usual weekend activities which included a trip to CostCo. I got this wonderful watermelon and it was so delicious.

What’s life without watermelon??

And one funny poem that I got from on of my students. It is too good not to share.

The illustration of the pug is what really gets me!! It is so great.

And now flash forward to this past weekend. It is so great to have a long weekend and to give thanks to all of the men and women who fight and have fought for our freedom.

During our long weekend Cody and I made it over to the Washington coast. My favourite place in the whole entire world, Kalaloch.

Kalaloch doesn’t let people reserve camp spots until June 11 so when Cody and I got there, the sites were full!!! We had to drive 1.5 hours along highway 101 and stopping at every campground until we found an available spot at 7:30 pm. It was sure an adventure! But during our search we found this awesome spot on the Hoh river and it was so beautiful that we went back the next day and spent quite some time there! We made some sweet rock stacks and just played around on the rocks. And then we headed over to Ruby Beach and Kalaloch where we searched for star fish and played in the water. It was such a great weekend!

And now onto some of my workouts! Yesterday I met up with a couple people from my class and ran a few miles with them. It was so fun! I love running with people so much. Chatting makes the miles fly by. I ran a couple miles before meeting up with them and then had to run those miles back to my place and ended up with about 8 miles. It was a good time! And the weather was perfect, overcast and cool.

Today I did a biceps and triceps workout!

4×8 barbell curls

3×10 hammer db curls

3×8 preacher curls

3×10 close grip triceps bench press

3×8 triceps pull downs

3×8 push downs

And then I finished up with 15 minutes on the stairclimber.

Later tonight I a going to go back and get in about 45 minutes on the elliptical!

I hope that everybody had a great long weekend and made it through this long and rambling post!
