Spring Saturday

It’s my last night at home, and I’m pretty bummed about it. I’ve had a great time relaxing this spring break and I am certainly not ready to go back to school tomorrow morning.

I woke up early to go for a morning run with Melissa and Geri, who are in town for Easter. Melissa had to do lifeguard recertification starting at 9 a.m., and Geri had plans in the evening, so our only opportunity for a run was at 8 a.m.

I was sleeeeepy this morning after staying up late watching basketball but I dragged myself out of bed and had a cup of coffee and watched the Today Show. Then I headed out to meet Melissa and Geri at the pool for our run.

We met in the parking lot and set out into the neighborhoods. We were going up and down some pretty major hills and it was tough!

I started feeling a little icky in the afternoon, so we came home and I took a bit of a nap. I’ve been feeling sort of queasy/headache-y ever since and I am not enjoying it. For dinner I just made a simple smoothie:

Tonight I am relaxing and going to bed early because I have to head back to school tomorrow morning. I wish spring break would last forever!
