Sunday 6/10 -

Actual: 13 miles easy with the last 0.5 moderate to hard effort. I was on my feet longer than I probably should have been but it was great running with my friend Maria. I felt pretty good going faster the last 0.5 miles.

Thursday was the last day of school! I can't believe 1st and 3rd grade is over for these two!
We did celebrate the last day of school with some friends. Thanks to my friend Bessie for being a great host and having us all over!
As to the weekend, 9 year old had his birthday party with some friends on Friday. We had it at Laser X and it was a blast for the kids and also the adults.
Saturday was 9 year old's last soccer game of the season. 
We celebrated the end of season with a pool party at a friends house.
That night, I also went out with my fellow Fleet Feet coworkers to a Sacramento Republic game. Brooks Running definitely knows how to treat us! It was a lot of fun! 
Sunday was long run day and I got in my 13 miles with my friend Maria in the morning before work and it was fun to see a couple of other familiar faces on our route! We actually saw them twice since we all were running the Davis bike loop! :)
That pretty much sums up my week! Linking this post up with HoHo Runs and Taking the Long Way Home for their Weekly Wrap. 
Have a great week!
