Did you think I was sad after reading yesterdays post? I was sad, missing my mother hits me at the unlikeliest times. I’m truly grateful for the many women that have come into my life and have mothered me along the way.
So as promised, this is what I did on Mother’s Day! Rather than call for a no mother’s day-no gifts, phone calls, emails, etc. Fresh air and exercise were calling me. It was the Ladies' choice multisport festival. Rather than the triathlon, I did a duathlon..ran 2 miles, biked 8 miles and ran 2 miles. It was an all girl fest! My girlfriend had asked me to do this race with her. She opted to do the relay, her daughter swam, and my friend biked and then ran. She was worried about the run, but she finished and we had a great time. Awards were given out for various age categories and door prizes. Sadly, we didn’t leave with a door prize or award. We did leave feeling exhilarated and proud of our new accomplishment. This race was a first for both us.
Check out my awesome post race/Mother’s Day breakfast! Cheese and bacon crepes, sausage and coffee…yumm.
Movie with the BG. I talked him into going to see The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. I can’t stop raving about that movie..wonderful, laugh out loud funny!
San Vito Restaurant and then home to partake in Red Velvel cupcakes made my D#1. Delicious! I couldn’t have asked for a better mother’s Day! Was there drama….a bit. Was there laughter…loads. Sitting down on the couch for long talks….really, what was I thinking??!!
