Including a Pig

This past weekend was a no running weekend. It was a nice break and also much needed. 
I could feel my body saying – Okayyy… Can we have a little break now?? 
Spending the weekend in New Jersey was just what I needed. Great food, Ryan, Bailey and lots of relaxing.
image-1On Sunday we took Bailey to a park by Ryan’s parents house and went for a little hike. I’m pretty sure she’s the most photogenic dog around…

There’s also an area with rescued animals. Bailey made lots ofnew friends, including a pig.

No running happened last night.
I was still in the relaxing mood so I watched a movie, knitted and called my parents to say hi. Our conversations always last about an hour so I didn’t turn off the light until 10:15pm… Not the best when your alarm clock goes off at 5:50am and you’re running 5 1/2 miles before 7:15am… That’s what’s coffee is for, right?
I love when you’re able to fit everything in, even if you’re a little tired.

    Good for you for the non running weekend! I need to do those more often but it’s definitely something I struggle with. Sometimes you just need to let go and enjoy the time with friends and family. I’m glad it went well for you!

  2. Sounds like a perfect weekend! i think we all need to give our bodies a little break now and then. 🙂

    Tell Marci Bubby is very jealous of that pig and Bailey. He thinks Bailey is his girl, and she likes him as well. I have been doing a 14 min mile on the treadmill every day, 3miles for now. Even with the moleskin my feet are blistering. OUCH! I love speed walking, and hope to get back to my 6 miles a day. In time!

  6. sometimes a relaxing weekend away/off from running is just what we need!

    also, i. die. over how cute your pup is in that plaid sweater!!!
