Saturday Sampler: Happy Birthday to Me!!!

Ok, so I know it has been awhile since my last post, but it has been a whirlwind week. Between food poisoning, a double ear infection, missing working only to be hit with working late on a day I should've stayed home. To say the least it has been hectic. Today is my birthday and I embarked on a perfect vacation on Friday morning. Traveled quickly through Yosemite, caught a bear siting then landed in Mammoth Lakes, CA. I love it here. On the schedule this weekend was a 6 mile run today and a 4 mile run tomorrow. Yesterday was a rest day and I appropriately sprained my ankle fly fishing. Yeah, I know it sounds pretty ridiculous, but I was standing in snow on the shore casting when the "packed" snow under me gave way. Kinda lame, but I would rather be nowhere else than beautiful Mammoth with a sprained ankle. A little frustrating for sure since there is so much to do outdoors here, but still was able to tough through a short hike this afternoon before my schedule birthday massage.

Tonight I had an amazing dinner and am now enjoying the company of some great friends. It is likely I'll skip the Sunday Summary tomorrow, but I am looking forward to this weeks Monday Motivation post. I totally need to get back on track, but am not too worried about it since birthday weekends mean calories kinda don't count and missed workouts are kinda ok. Right?

Hope everyone is having as fabulous a weekend as I am! Looking forward to my next challenge or list or something to check off, report on and look forward to.

Happy eating, drinking and laughing....if you can squeeze some swimming, biking and running in there too, then you are my hero!
