Saturday was a ridiculously busy day. I wasn’t sure how we were going to do it all, but we dug down deep and got it done.
Here was the schedule:
- 9am Hyland 5k
- 9am baseball game
- 11am soccer game (J coaches!)
- 12pm birthday lunch for my mom
- packet pickup at the expo
- date night
Luckily I have the best parents in the entire world who showed up at our house at 8am Saturday morning to take C to his 9am baseball game.
J and I made it to the Hyland 5k with just enough time to pick up our bibs and gear up.
We ran a quick(ish) 5k, finished with Chelsea, cooled off a bit, and got right back in the car to go to C’s baseball game.
Got to the game just in time to watch C pitch!
J left at 10:30 to fulfill his soccer coaching duties and I stayed with my parents to watch C finish out his baseball game.
As soon as it was over we booked over to the soccer fields (with C experiencing his first ever full car wardrobe change!). Once the game was over we came back to the house for a little lunch cookout/birthday celebration for my mom (she’s somehow 55 again? Weird).
We enjoyed some sausages from TJ’s Butcher Block and a little homemade Hershey’s Perfect Chocolate Cake before my parents took C home for the night and J and I headed to the expo to pick up our bibs for Sunday’s race. We went smelly and all. No showers yet – and, just for the record, 5k sweat, mixed with baseball field dust, is not a good combination. I sincerely apologize to anyone who was next to me in line at the packet pickup.
We finally made it home around 4:00 and ended up falling asleep (yep, still no showers) for about an hour or so. Which could quite possibly have been the best nap of my life.
And date night? Yeah, never happened. We ate leftovers, showered (yay!), and went to bed early. Like good runners do. Or like old people do. Your call.
Tell me one thing you did this past Saturday!
