In our former life (aka a few months ago), we would have spent our wedding anniversary with little to moderate activity and then gorged ourselves on a big meal. Well, we still did the 2nd part – especially me – but the rest of the day was so different. It’s interesting how recent lifestyle changes and priorities have changed our outlook. The first and main priority was to get our training run in!! And since we are trying to cram in as much hill training as possible, it was not a leisurely stroll around the neighborhood. We packed up the kids and headed south towards Nashville, IN to run around Sweetwater Lake. It’s a brutal, knee-killing run at a normal pace but we both increased our speed to increase the intensity of the run since we had limited time. It was a strong run for both of us – only bad part is that we had to do our typical – take turns running. It was a great confidence boost since our hill run the week before was not very good for either of us…I got the added bonus of seeing a bald eagle – didn’t realize we had those in Indiana – which was pretty cool!!
Then after a decent calorie burn, we went back to our old ways and enjoyed a nice high calorie dinner and dessert. I still can’t believe I ate a 12oz filet but it was the best steak I’ve ever had!
So here is to continued new beginnings in our married life and in our running life..Happy Anniversary Sweetheart!
