Beast Mode

Hello friends!

This weekend was simply amazing, seriously. On Friday, we headed to my Erik’s parents house for pizza (a lot of pizza) and a movie. We had a total of seven pizzas (for eight people, ha) and watched Moneyball. That was a great movie, but then again I love baseball movies.

Saturday morning, Erik had to get up and go to a work conference, so I geared up to go on my nine mile run, but as soon as I opened the door to head outside it started POURING, sweet life.

Instead I showered and headed over to my mom’s house to hang out with my family, and so that my mom could cut my hair ๐Ÿ™‚ After Erik got back we went over to our friends (Nalini and Sundeep’s) apartment for their housewarming party. We had a freaking awesome time, their friends are really fun to hang out with and we met some pretty awesome new people. She had an awesome housewarming idea, they painted these mirrors black and had everyone write their favorite word in white out. Perdy awesome.

I wrote one word on all three, (Shenanigans, Ninja, and Guppy), because I am just that awesome. And because noone else was writing anything so I thought I would be the first.

Woke up Sunday morning completely intimidated by the Nine miles I was supposed to run, so I debated all morning whether I wanted to run it or not. ย But with Erik’s encouragement I got my stuff together and headed out and I am so freaking glad I did. ย I have never felt so amazing and so proud of myself. I felt like I could run forever, and at around mile three I knew I was going to be able to run all nine.

ย AHHH I am so happy with that time!

Enter beast mode: after my run and subsequent ice bath (aweeeeeeesome) Erik pumped up the tires of our bikes and we headed out for a two hourย mountainย bike ride!!! It was veeeeerrrry muddy, but we had such a great time.

Afterwards we went to get lunch, a very late lunch, then vegged out on the couch for the rest of the day/night. ย A perfect end to an awesome weekend!

How was your weekend?

Do you guys bike ride?
