My Dad came to stay with us Friday night for the weekend. He left about 5:30 this morning to get back to the hospital for a meeting with Grandpa’s doctors. Saturday we went to Tamarac Park for a workout. This Saturday my training schedule called for a 4 mile walk/run. We had a great time! The weather was about 57 degrees, which is almost perfect. We ended up going 5 miles in about 1:15. Our average pace was 15:43 and our fastest pace was 10:34..woohoo!!! I think if I keep going at this pace I’ll be able to finish the 1/2 marathon in under 4 hours, so that is now my goal. Since “under 4 hours” is rather broad we’ll make it to finish in 3:45!
After our workout we went to eat at Carraba’s. Carraba’s is not Paleo friendly but I was able to make some requests and modifications to make it work. I was also able to go say hi to my friend Amanda at James Avery. It was good to see her again. Finally, we went to my Uncle Eric’s house to visit with him and his family for a while. So, we had a full day. I always enjoy spending time with my Dad. Since they moved to NC I don’t get to see them very often. Right now Mom is snowed into their house up there. I will be more than happy to let her keep the snow!
