A Very Patriotic Weekend Recap

I hope you all enjoyed the long holiday weekend celebrating America!

4th of JulySome grainy photos of the fireworks I got to see Saturday night. 🙂

I road-tripped early Friday morning to spend the weekend celebrating America’s birthday with this guy.

4th of JulyHands-down, our favorite part were all the dogs in the parade. SO CUTE! That evening, we went and saw the fireworks, which were beautiful, although a little past my bedtime (they didn’t end up starting until sometime around 9:40, even though it was plenty dark by 9 pm).

Sunday, I spent most of the day driving home and then went for a little 3-miler in the evening just to loosen up my legs after the long car ride. In the evening, I watched the USA women KICK BUTT in the World Cup! As a former soccer player, I always enjoy watching a game, especially an exciting, goal-filled game like this one was!

So a pretty great weekend! Not a lot of runs for me, but I’m looking forward to getting in more solid mid-week training this week. 🙂

Hope you had a great 4th! Did you watch the USA-Japan game?
