Another Year Older

Yesterday I turned another year older. 37 to be exact. So what does one do on their birthday? I got up at 6:45am to do laundry, headed to the gym at 9am to get my daily run and workout in, showered and got ready in 30 minutes to be on time for my birthday lunch at Carmine's with a good friend of mine and ended the day with birthday wish filled conversations with loved ones.

Very little knitting was completed this weekend. I started my 6th pair of SOS socks. I am currently halfway finished with the leg. I'll post a picture this week. I did a ton of running on Saturday. I covered a 12.5 mile long run for my marathon training. Getting to the 10 mile mark was very comfortable for me since I had already covered that mileage the week before. I knew it would be a push to get through the last scheduled 5 miles I was suppose to cover. I was happy that I got 2.5 more miles out of myself before having to stop. I did walk the last 2.5 miles of the 15 mile run though. This coming Saturday I'll be covering the 15 miles for sure.

On other news I am totally into the new Stephenie Meyer book, "
Breaking Dawn". I finally finished the other book I was reading so I can now solely focus on this one. I had a hard time putting it down last night to go to sleep. It's just so good!

Thanks to everyone who sent me happy birthday wishes yesterday!


  1. I'm on the last third of Breaking Dawn. Oh, my. Definitely the best yet!

    Glad you had a good birthday!!

  2. Happy belated birthday!! I am glad you had a good day!

  3. Yup. Breaking Dawn is a great book. Once again Meyers has created another awesome story.

  4. Happy Birthday! It sounds like it was a lovely day. I'm starting to become curious about this "good friend".

  5. Happy Birthday!! I hope the coming year brings only *pleasant* surprises for you. *hugs*
