This past holiday weekend was truly an amazing time spent with family; a constant reminder of how I have some amazing people in my life and its the simplest things that make me happy. I could go on and on about all the events of my weekend, but instead I'll make it easier via bullets & pictures
Cousins Chad and Collin- we're all within 1 month of eachother in age- haven't seen either since 2005
Oh you know, some alcohol mixed with pool and of course break dancing
Chad and Collin stretching before our mid afternoon run
- So Collin has been living in Canada the past several months rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking - all at HIGH altitudes- this translates into being SUPER in shape. We left the house around 11am (naturally it was steamy out) and during our first mile I kept looking down at the Garmin as it was telling me we were doing 6:30 pace- agh I'm not going to be able to hold it
- Luckily he did slow down and it was a bit more comfortable. Chad had to stop, so I stopped along with him- Collin kept going, Chad went back to the house, so I'm left alone to run in the blazing heat w/ no shade. Eventually I gave in to walking (of course my parents had to drive by in the midst of walking) and after it was said and done I finished my whopping 3 miles at a 7:58 pace - with the walking (shows how fast we were going in the beginning.
This years theme was to incorporate pink in your outfit- I went for 'tacky'
Collin went for super hero pink
Pink, cowgirl, toga, tacky. I'm also apparently the brunette giant
