Better late than never

Happy Hump Day! I took a little break from blogging for a few days so that I could enjoy my weekend. Erm and I celebrated Valentine’s Day on Sunday. I came home from a birthday party on Saturday to flowers and chocolates :) Tulips, to be exact. They are my favorite.

Tip: If you want your tulips to stand up straight, poke a small hole in the stem, right under the flower. I have no idea why this works, but I’ve been doing it for years.

Sunday morning I got up early to get in a long run. I was supposed to do 7 miles, but in the interest of time and my hip, I cut it down to 6. My hip has been bothering me and I think its because I’m running more and stretching less. Whoops. I ran my 6 miles in 59:50, which is good, but not great. I have some short races coming up, but the big one is in April, so I have time to work on my legs. 😀

Our unconventional Valentine’s Day was spent doing one of my favorite things, at the Celtics game!

And with that getup, I still didn’t get on the jumbotron. Its clearly rigged.

Actually Valentine’s Day was spent with a quiet night at home. I made dinner and we relaxed. What says Valentine’s Day more than this collection?

The flowers on the right are from my father-in-law. No question where Erm got his skills from.

Do you like Valentine’s Day? Have you ever had to cut a long run short? Why?

  1. My husband and I usually don’t do much for V-Day. This year we wished each other a happy day & that was about it. Although I had to stop at the store before dinner & decided to grab a big cupcake with heart-sprinkles while I was there.

    I’ve cut long runs short before – sometimes because I just couldn’t get into the groove and was basically torturing myself mentally. Other times because it was too hot or because I was feeling pain. Definitely no shame in cutting a run short when you need to!

  2. I have been to probably 50 celtics games and I have never been on the jumbotron either…also have never caught a t-shirt :/ It’s definitely rigged!

    Tulips, yellow roses and sunflowers are my favorite flowers. I got yellow roses for Valentine’s Day! Also, great tip on the tulips.

    You are hysterical with that Celtics outfit!! Maybe you need to wear one of those full body green suits to get noticed because those people always make it in the TV shots.
