Thank you everyone for the anniversary wishes!  We had a delicious dinner at a nearby restaurant and even had our youngest son Daniel join us.  I don’t talk about Daniel as much because he’s a tennis player, not a runner; and I write a running blog, not a tennis blog.  🙂  Joseph was away on a business trip and couldn’t join us.

I’m happy to tell you that Daniel ordered his beloved fish tacos and said they were delicious!  Sorry the photo is so bad, but I forget to take my camera and only had my iPhone to use.


We skipped dessert since we had a Wegman’s mini Ultimate White Cake at home waiting for us!  This little cake is so adorable!  It serves four, so there weren’t a lot of leftovers to temp me today!


I really, really, really wish I had ordered one of these running toppers for our anniversary cake!  Next year for sure!

Today I met my former client turned best friend, Vel, for lunch.  We met at Panera because I haven’t been there yet this summer to get their “summer only” Strawberry Poppyseed & Chicken Salad.  It’s one of my favorite salads and last summer I totally forgot to get one, and I didn’t want to make the same horrible mistake this summer!


While Vel and I were out and about, the right lens in my seven-year-old Oakleys popped out when I put them on top of my head when we went into a store.  I often wear my sunglasses as a headband, but for the last couple of years the lens popping out thing has become a problem.  I finally bit the bullet and decided to stop by Sunglass Hut for a new pair of sunglasses this afternoon.   Here were some of my choices…


My eyes are extremely sensitive to light so I HAVE to wear sunglasses when I’m outside, even on cloudy days.  I decided for my eye health that I should get glasses with UVA and UVB protection, and polarization.  These are the ones I chose, the Oakley Flak Jacket.  You like?  I can’t wait to take them on a test run tomorrow morning!


BTW, while I’m writing this, Bill is making dinner.  I could get used to this!  🙂

  • Questions:
  • What sunglasses do you wear when you run?
  • Who cooks at your house?
  • How far are you running or racing tomorrow?
