I have been avoiding recapping my Labor Day weekend simply because I don’t want to admit that it is over.
My MIL and FIL flew in for a long weekend visit. Boy, I sure am lucky because I honestly look forward to every chance we get to spend time with them. They are such fantastic people, and I am NOT just saying that because my MIL reads my blog. 😉
As most of you may already know, they are the people that got me started with running over two years ago. Before then, I wanted absolutely nothing to do with it. Now, running is such a major blessing in my life. It is my release, my passion, my me-time. It is the reason I have met so many fantastic people out here in Seattle. I am so incredibly thankful that they told me ‘yes, you can’ when all I could think of was ‘no, I can’t.’ Ok, swear I’m done being a total sap.
Anyways, whenever my inlaws and I are reunited I get SUPER excited to have my running buddy back. And run, we did.
We ran 4 beautiful Alki miles one day and 6 gorgeous Downtown Waterfront miles the next. I got to show off some amazing views like this:
Those were some of the best miles I have felt in a long time. Serious runners high. I’m tellin ya, there is nothing like it.
We did do other things besides run. We drank coffee that was way too pretty to be consumed:
We took a $1 beer tour at Red Hook Brewery:
And we got to spend some serious quality time shopping with Cousie D and Aunt Do. Pictures of my damage to come in a different post.
We ate, we laughed, we ate some more. Overall, it was one of the best weekends we have had in a long time. It was really hard to see them go, but it just makes me super excited for the next time we get to see them. It always gives us something to look forward to. 🙂
What did you do this Labor Day weekend? What is one thing that makes you lucky?
