Summer Mini Vacay part II: Running,Hiking,and the Beach

On to Saturday! After the wonderful evening with friends, I knew it was going to be hard to get up for my Saturday club run. I met the group at 5am for a 5 mile run. I still can’t believe I even made it out of bed with only 4 hours of sleep! The run was actually pretty decent, but I was sleepy by the end. As if running wasn’t enough I had a 4 mile hike with my bootcamp ladies!

We had such a lovely climb up, even though I was falling asleep half way up there;)

I am so proud of these girls for getting up so early, when I was in high school you couldn’t have paid me to wake up at 6am on a Saturday!

We all brought up a little something for a potluck breakfast. Once again we all brought the same thing:) But it was all delicious!  I needed some protein ASAP!

After the hike, Hubby and I met up at my Mom’s house to head out for our Birthday(moms) Beach Weekend!! As soon as we got their I did this…

 ABSOLUTLY NOTHING!!! I love laying on the beach and not worrying about anything. Everyone else grubbed a little but I wanted to SLEEP!

What a beautiful day it turned out to be.

When I got up from napping, I had some carrots, “punch” and I munched on a few other things that I didn’t get photos of. I was trying to make as many good choices as possible, but it’s not easy!

After about 4 hours at the beach we went to go check into our hotel room, which was right next to the beach. The rooms were so nice and very modern. I wanted to just crawl into the bed, man I was tired!

After we took showers and got all spruced up we went out for Mamas Birthday Dinner! My Mom wanted to got to the Huntington Beach Brewery, because she wanted to watch the fight. I am not a big fan of MMA, so I just enjoyed the evening with my wonderful Hubby.

By this time I was starving! Not a good idea, because instead of a “real dinner” I had a nacho appetizer with the table!!

They forgot about my pizza that I ordered so I ended up eating half of Hubby’s sweet potato fries and getting too full for my pizza when it came.

This was all so GOOD, but I knew that my tummy was going to hate me later! I also had a glass of one of their infamous beers(can’t remember the name of it). It was ok, nothing special.

After dinner we went out dancing! It was so much fun, Hubby and I called it a night early because I was about to fall asleep at 11pm! I know I am quite the old lady sometimes but I couldn’t help it. I made sure I drank lot’s of water and didn’t drink any alcohol after the beer at dinner, because I didn’t want to fell yucky the next day!!!  I knew if anything I was going to have a food hangover!!

What a fun first day at the beach, stay tuned for more….
