Yesterday was my birthday!
As my brother made sure to text me Ha! You're old now"
When I was younger we would wake the Birthday child up by singing "Happy Birthday" and breakfast in bed (our choice) I always chose Strawberry Crepes. Because they're delicious.
Jason tried to make them but really had no idea how to do it, so I ended up making doing it.
I also had some of my Hot Chocolate that Sandra gave me for my birthday...SO GOOD.
It has marshmallows!
I didn't have anything really planned so I just dinked around until it was time to go to speed. You KNOW I'm going to do my speed work Birthday or not!
I actually really enjoy speed work. Maybe not in the middle of it, but I look forward to is and love the feeling of accomplishment I get after I'm done with a workout. I also really enjoy getting new PR's:)
My own little prizes.
My running friends gave me a mini party after our social run. I got to eat my favorite food Mini Saigon's Spring Rolls. I could eat them every day.
Jason tried ordering me some for take out and only ordered me two. The owner saw me when I came to pick them up and asked "Only two?" He knew I'd need more than that!
He might just recognize me because I'm always in my running clothes.
I got birthday flowers!
(I love them, they're beautiful)
These ladies know me so well I got a gift card for Bonjour Cupcakes (You must try them if you're ever in Olympia, WA)
A gift card for Canvas Works, which is NOT an art store but instead is a YARN store!
and a beautiful amethyst bracelet.
I also got Chicken Soup for the Runners Soul:)
I think the best is that 10 months ago I didn't know any of them and now I know so many great people. Running does that for me. I meet people that I would normally be to shy to talk to, but because I know they like running we have something in common from the start.
It really has been a great birthday because of all the friends I've had around me.
