Monday: 2.1m with Laura + 2.5m, 15 min chest/biceps
Friday Cameron and I got to dress up all fancy and head downtown DC to the Park at 14th for Gold’s Gym holiday party. The food they had for us was excellent, i picked at Cameron’s salad & chicken, but ended up mostly eating the crab cake balls, mini cupcakes and cocktails.
As soon as we walked in and checked out coats we noticed the tv’s were playing the Capitals game, so it kept us entertained until we met up with friends.
Over the weekend Laura sent me a “wanna run” text. My answer is 99.9% of the time YES so we ended up doing a couple miles together yesterday. She hasn’t gone on a run since her half marathon in October so she’s trying to ease back into it a few miles at a time.
Our only complaint was the cold. It was 30 degrees and with wind of course it felt colder. My hands just wouldn’t warm up, but we had a fun time spotting deer and taking pictures. Laura did well with her first run back. Her pace was pretty normal and we took several walk breaks which is also normal for a comeback run.

Also a new episode of Rick And Morty is on tonight at 10:30 EST. If you didn’t see my post on it, my future brother-in-law created the show, does the main character’s voices and is a funny dude. Sarah Chalke is the voice for the mother on the show and apparently is a sweetheart in real life.
