What a great week this has been! I slept in almost every day and did something different with my sisters and mom or just with my mom. She is staying with us for these two weeks. She keeps asking when she is going back home. I guess she is tired of staying with us? 🙂
Monday morning I ran 3 easy miles and then my sisters, niece, and nephew came over. My mother and sister made “picaditas” for breakfast. They’re small tortillas with a pinched-up rim around the edges. Then my aunt and uncle came over. We ate, talked, ate again, and talked some more.
No running on Tuesday but my mother made Mole. She had the paste and I thought she was only going to mix it with chicken broth but I was wrong. She added additional spices and let me tell you that it was worth it because it was DELICIOUS.
And this is why I don’t put a tree up for Christmas.
I did get a good picture with my babies.
I was so happy to see my coach schedule a run for Wednesday because it was a beautiful day outside. I ran 4 miles and wore shorts and my new Brooks Revel 3 shoes. Then we went to my cousin’s house to eat (again) and hang out together. Another great time!
No running on Thursday but we went out for lunch with my sisters, niece, and nephew. We ate at “Mi Tierra” and their food is delicious. It is one of the few restaurants that serves good Mexican food (in my opinion). Then we went to get some dessert.
On Friday I ran 2 miles. I should have run on Thursday because I was cold on Friday morning. Plus for some reason I struggles running 2 miles. Must have been all of the food I’ve been eating. 🙂
I was planning to go to WaterFall Glen on Saturday morning but woke up late so I ran by my house. I needed to be back in time to shower, get ready, and eat something before heading out to the movies. We saw “Jumanji”. It was really good and funny too.
As you can see, this week was full of eating good food and spending a lot of time with family. Being with family is definitely THE BEST. I did all of my runs and 2 Peloton workouts. Oh and thanks to Facebook for the reminder from 8 years ago. Yes, we did find her house. 🙂
I hope you had a great week! What are your plans for the New Year? We haven’t decided yet but most likely we’ll stay home and go to bed early. 🙂
