Palm trees, hills of death, mangoes, OH MY!!!

I'm back from the Cali coast. ...I know, I don't know why I came back either!

Friday morning I got in a 5 mile run, on the California hills. I want you to know that I didn't plan to run 5 miles because I can't run that far; or so I thought. I was TRICKED into running 5 miles by being told we were running 3 to 4 miles.


West coast running coach:  We'll do 3-4 miles. Can you handle that?

Running Curl:  Yeah, I think so!
 
Cut to 45 mins later.

WCRC:  Ok, so if we add one more mile,...
 
RC:  ANOTHER MILE?!?!?!
 
WCRC:  As I was saying...if we add another mile, you'd have your 10k. That was 5 miles. Congrats!
 
RC:  (wheeze, wheeze, pant, pant) Huh? Awesome! I'm going to kill you! Can we walk now? I feel amazing. I think I'm dying. Ok, I'm good. It's time for a mimosa.


I spent time in the pool, the hot tub, and on the rooftop deck. I did morning yoga on that deck btw. I'm sure our friends' neighbors enjoyed that scene.

We visited Mission Beach, old downtown San Diego, and Escondido. We stopped by Comic-Con, saw 3 of the Impractical Jokers, and enjoyed great food.

I'm so happy to be back home though, despite our Oklahoma humidity.

 

Whatever you do this day, week, month, or season, make sure you enjoy it! This life is short, so take in the beauty that has been bestowed upon us.


What fun thing did you do this summer?
 
What is your longest distance? Intentional or not...
 
Do you love mango as much as I do?!
