Summer weather, winter weather, throwdowns and cheeseburgers!

We’ve had some absolutely gorgeous sunrises here in the last few days…

We’ve also had a lot of morning walk throwdowns…

Saturday we had absolutely BEAUTIFUL weather. I did 11 miles for a long run and wore shorts and a tank top and was sweating like crazy…and I loved it!! Ottawa looked and felt like spring was finally here!

But it was just a tease. This was me this morning on my way to work:

It’s May 9th…WHY AM I DRESSED LIKE THAT?? Seriously, it was below freezing when I walked Abby this morning. Ridiculous.

But back to Saturday…I probably shouldn’t have done 11 miles. After a race like Cincinnati, where I depleted EVERYTHING in my muscles, I know that I should take at least a week fully off…but I got caught up in the warm weather…and suffered for it afterwards. Once I got home, I had NOTHING left in me. And I felt like absolute hell. I knew I needed to get some calories into me, but nothing I had at home was appealing…soooooo….

Yup, I devoured 3 McDonald’s cheeseburgers…in about 10 seconds. And felt awesome afterwards!! lol

Saturday night I met up with some teammates for a couple (at least that was the plan) of drinks.

Let’s just say it was a lot more than a couple and, for the first time in YEARS, I had to set my alarm for 11am (!!) to ensure that I would get up in time for Mother’s Day Brunch.

And OMG, the Mother’s Day Brunch. My dad took us to the Fairmont Chateau Laurier for the most INSANE spread of food I have ever seen in my life. Basically, ANYTHING you wanted was there. And it was held in the grand ballroom – super fancy schmancy!

Then I spent the rest of the day on the couch…recovering from Saturday night and the amount of food I ate at brunch. lol

Seriously, she owns my heart.

And makes me laugh so hard.

Happy Monday!!
