We arrived to their house around 7pm and spent our time talking with family we hadn't seen in awhile. We also enjoyed birthday cake and a few pieces of various Middle Eastern sweets. Rema's parents went overseas for a couple of weeks for a wedding and brought back some goodies for us to enjoy. I completely forgot to snap a couple of pictures of the desserts!
One of my cousin's had a baby 3 weeks ago so I made sure to get in lots of cuddling with her!
On Saturday Alex, my step-dad, my brother, and I all went out to lunch together. We went to a restaurant called the Tilted Kilt. The waitresses there wore plaid mini skirts and their tops covered close to nothing so the boys were all googly-eyed the entire meal. The restaurant was like a pub and had some fun Irish sayings on the wall. I ordered a chicken wrap that had a spicy dressing which gave it a nice kick. I was pretty impressed with the food there but it was a little awkward having a half-naked waitress bring it to the table. Once again, I ate the food too quickly to even think about taking a picture. I'm sorry my picture-taking skills were lacking this weekend!
Because Friday we spent the day traveling and I ended up forgetting my running shoes back at school, I didn't get my long run in while I was at home. Today I hadn't drank too much water and think I had one too many pieces of candy while I was home over the weekend so I knew going into it that my run today wasn't going to be good. After a mile and a half I was feeling sick so I stopped. I didn't even try to keep going and told myself that 1.5 miles was better than doing nothing.
When you are really busy how do you fit in a long run? They take up so much time but I know they are important! Also, if you are feeling sick do you push through it or stop running?
