Happy Fourth of July, Running with a Marathoner, and Lots of Family Time (Super Long Weekend Recap 7/3)
Good afternoon friends and happy Fourth of July! I hope wherever you are and however you are celebrating, you remember the sacrifices that have been made by many men and women for our country.
Since my brother is in the army, I feel as though I now have a whole new appreciation for our military. So, to anyone who is serving or has served our country (in any sort of way), I want to say, thank you.
It is because of sacrifices that our soldiers make for us that we can enjoy the freedom that our nation has to offer. America isn’t perfect, she has her flaws, but we, as Americans are free. And that’s a beautiful thing.
Let’s talk about the weekend…
I forgot to take a picture, but I ran with my friend, Emma who has run twenty marathons. (She’s my age folks.) I don’t know how she has run that many!! Can you say inspiring? Maybe, one day she can pace me in my first full marathon. (If you are reading this Emma, that’d be great…) 😉
We had a lot of fun exploring new parts of the trails and I was reminded just how much I love running with people!
Once we arrived home, Landon and I refueled with protein smoothies, cleaned up, and I ran errands at Woodmans.
The rest of our Saturday we spent over my inlaws, gardening, playing croquet, tossing a frisbee around, and eating Liberian food. (A personal favorite of mine!!)
We ended the night on a light note (I exaggerate…) by watching 13 Hours.
Wow. It was heavy and super intense, but a great movie. Anyone else seen it?
Thank goodness for coffee.
After church, Landon and I went out witnessesing with a friend and then headed to my parents for dinner.
That’s all for now folks. Have a great day celebrating. (And stay safe!) I will catch up with you all tomorrow.
