Last week, Julia and I resurrected our summer tradition of fun, fitness, and friendship by meeting up for a walk, run, and breakfast afterward. We parked at a restaurant and walked to the outer perimeter of Texas A&M University, then ran around campus for 2.5 miles. It was fun to run somewhere different for a change. We walked back to the restaurant, had breakfast, did our usual therapy session, and the day was good.
On Saturday, we ran in what was the hottest temps of the year so far - it was 79 degrees with a feels like temp of 89 - yes, almost 90 freaking degrees! Cary and I ran together and we took it easy...no need to kill ourselves on a day like that. Jeff ran his birthday 6 miles but said that was it for him - no more long runs in that kind of heat. Afterward, I was dripping sweat and trying to cool down with a pickle pop, when Abi wanted some attention:
Pet me, kiss me, love me!!!
Poor thing didn't understand - normally I do pet her, but I wanted to dry off first so I wouldn't have her fur stuck to my sweaty self.
After everyone was finished running, we went to Blue Baker, where the baker gave us two s'mores cookies, which they've just come out with. They have a hit with that flavor - we all enjoyed it!
On Sunday evening, we played Frisbee at Karen and Jimmymeow's house. We had so much fun, and like I said above, I'm not the most agile person, but I was out there running and sometimes jumping for it, throwing and catching and just enjoying life. It's great to be a participant instead of just sitting on the sidelines, too heavy to move.
Cary and Chip - oh, he LOVED the Frisbee!!!
It's all fun and games until the Frisbee lands on the roof. Then it's time for Brian to show his MacGyver skills of getting it down with a ladder and a golf ball retriever.
So, a bit of an unorthodox week in terms of exercise, but one that was fully enjoyable. I've even ordered a Frisbee so Jeff and I can play in the front yard...I wonder if Paco will be as interested in it as Chip was?
