What a weekend! I feel like it flew by and here we are on another Monday. Kyle had Friday off which was nice so we made sure to make the most of the time.
I always look forward to Kyle's days off because that means he can go to SLAM with me. This was a Veterans Day class and we did the hero WOD Murph. It was a slightly modified version but it was awesome and a tough workout. Pretty sure we both are still sore.
Later in the day we decided to take a trip to IKEA. We wanted to get E a table for her play area and a new rug. Clearly she loves the rug haha. I could spend all day in this store but that's not good for our bank account haha.
Saturday morning we were up bright and early for our 100th race!!! It was a Veterans Day 5k in Kansas City. We picked up our friends, Lauren and Anne, and headed off. A few of us from SLAM were running and it was fun! Normally Kyle runs ahead of me with E but we decided to run this together and I'm so glad! The course was a bit long but it happens, it was a great race.
We had shirts made that said, "575 miles, 100 races, 8 states, 1 hell of a good time". E also had a shirt that said "Team Smith 30" since this was her 30th race. Lauren gave us a jar of 100 caramel m&ms (our favorite) and she also coordinated for another friend to put balloons on our door for when we arrived home. It was such an awesome surprise and a great way to commemorate our 100th race. We are so thankful for such great friends!
Afterwards we headed home and got ready for the Veterans Day Parade in town. A few people that we knew were walking in the parade so it was fun to see them and support the town. It was definitely cold out but completely worth it. We ended the day with Olive Garden and called it a night pretty early.
Sunday morning we were up early again. Kyle and I were running the Gobbler Grind Half Marathon. Our friend, Lauren, was awesome enough to watch E for us since they didn't allow strollers on the course. I understand why because it ended up being mostly ran on a paved trail that was not very wide.
It was a beautiful course that was a modified out and back. Kyle and I had some goals in mind but we didn't really talk about it. He wanted a sub 2 hour half and he did it! I secretly wanted to best my time from the KC Half and I did! It was definitely cold so we were thrilled when it was over haha.
The rest of the day was spent relaxing and hanging out at home. E is walking like crazy now and it's so fun watching her "run" around the house and play.
It was a great weekend for sure!
Hope you all had a good one.
