Global Running Day

Hi,

Happy Wednesday, Humpday, and Global Running Day!

Before I jump to today I’ll tell you about the rest of my weekend. It was swell! (I used to love the word swell. I think it’s time to bring it back. Isn’t that swell?)

Last we left off I told you all about the Spring Lake 5 on Saturday. Sunday I joined Mr. SOTSS and his 2 girls for a fun night in Point Pleasant (the Jersey Shore) for strolling the boardwalk, playing mini-golf and other fun amusement games.

I don't really know what my face is all about. I must have been thinking about whether to get ice cream or funnel cake afterward. Serious decisions.

Mr. SOTSS and his lil girl. Makes my heart swell to see the love they have for each other.

There’s a game where you throw darts at balloons. K, the almost 11-year old is a ringer! She won herself a smiley emoji pillow. I really wanted the poop emoji pillow so they all played again and won me the pillow. YAY!

Poop...there it is!

I love spending time with those girls. It brings me back to when life was simple. No worries about work or life stresses.

I was on a date with Mr. SOTSS the first summer we dated and saw this bench and loved the saying. So on Sunday I took another pic to have the side by side memory.

This was before I got a hole-in-one! Oh and while I was the only one with a true hole-in-one, Mr. SOTSS’ oldest had an epic hole-in-three. After 2 attempts where the ball went off the putting green she finally swung a third time and the ball hit about 30 different objects before landing right in the hole.

Another weird face on me.

They are a breath of fresh air to be around. Just being silly and laughing…pretty much my favorite way to live. I really needed it because this morning I woke up with finger nail marks in my hands. I was so tense I must have slept with my hands clenched in fists.

stress isn't swell. I need to run more!

I’m working remotely for the morning and will drive into work after lunch because Duncan had a grooming appointment. It worked out well because I worked late last night, came home in a bad mood and pretty much just went to bed. So I made up for it, starting my day at the park for a walk with Duncan.

He was so happy to jump in the car this morning

The honeysuckles are in full bloom and smell so delicious.

They really lift my spirits. Most flowers don’t smell fragrant to me but honeysuckles are like freshly ground coffee beans….I could inhale that aroma ALL DAY! After the walk in the park I went running for 3 miles to celebrate #GlobalRunningDay. I was FAST! I think I really had a lot of frustrations to sweat out from last night. Plus I knew I had to get back in time to get Duncan to the groomer.

And now Duncan is at the groomer and I’m working.

Hope you’re having a swell day 😉

Did you run any miles (or do you plan to?) for Global Running Day?

Do you have a word that you love to use?

  1. honey suckles and lilacs remind me of being a kid – they were all over my parents’ yard growing up 🙂

  2. So many honey suckles! Sometimes I still stop and steal a taste.

    Great photos, especially the two on the beach. That’s a keeper.

    Happy Global Running Day

  3. Honeysuckle reminds me of childhood! They were all over the town I grew up in. When we go to our local park, it’s like I’m back “home”!
