Running, Froyo and Hurricane Irma
Last week started with Todd coming home from a short work trip to DC and a doctors appointment for me. It ended with plenty of running, food, family and fun! I did 2 easy 6 milers, one 10 x 400 (.25 miles) @ 6:27 pace workout and got in 8 wonderful miles with Jolene on Friday.
Saturday began the normal way, with Kara and pancakes. She slept until 8:45!!! I ended up getting up around 8:30 which is the latest I’ve slept in a LONG time! I added some pumpkin to my Kodiak cakes and even though the temps aren’t cool here yet, these tasted like fall. I got the Pumpkin Flax Kodiak mix Sunday and it’s so awesome! Highly recommend!
On Sunday, Jolene and I met with a fellow instagramer (@heatherrunsfast), Stacey for 12 miles. She lives just outside of Orlando, so we each drove about 50 minutes to Lakeland to run around the beautiful Lake Hollingsworth. It was great to meet her in person and we WILL meet up again!
And now its Monday- wah wah… I never really talked about hurricane Irma, so I figured I’d give you a little run down with pictures… Todd was in Israel for work the week leading up to the hurricane and thankfully they let him come home a day early! A week is a long time for Kara and she was SO HAPPY to see Todd. Made my heart melt!
As soon as he got home, he went to work putting up our shutters. It’s not like he just got done with a work day and 20 hours worth of travel. Our hero <3 We are lucky that we have awesome neighbors who came over with their ladder and extra bread! Kara was amazed that DaDa was on the roof and was a great supervisor, haha.
My parents and grandma came over to weather the storm. We ate pancakes, played playdough, colored, walked while I could (this was during the two week wait when I couldn’t exercise) and ate all my Halo, just in case the power went out.
We had to rearrange some stuff and pulled out Kara’s old baby car seat. She was obsessed and just wanted to sit in it, haha. We also got into the hurricane peanut butter stash… this kid is every bit mine!
Since a side affect of hurricanes are tornadoes, we all slept downstairs just in case. We put Kara’s pack n play in the laundry room so that we could put her to sleep at a normal time and not have to be too quiet. She went down fine and slept through the entire storm. It got super windy and loud there for a bit but we made it through with no loss of power.
All in all, we got REALLY lucky. No damage to our house, no debris, no power outage and lots of time with family <3 And that’s a wrap folks! Hope you have a great week and that Fall is coming to an area near you
