Rain, Cold, and A Weekend Of Great Moms

Happy Monday!  What a weekend we had here.  Remember how I was singing the praises of last weekend and the amazing weather we had (by the way that seemed like just yesterday….I’m getting old)?  Well Mother Nature decided to stick it to us this weekend and we had some chilly, misty, and rainy weather here.  In true Midwest fashion it went from 80ºF on Friday afternoon to a quite chilly weekend in just a matter of hours.

Friday I went for a seven mile run and worked to pace myself with the hot and humid weather.  It was our first really toasty and damp day and I used that as my first lesson in pregnant running with warm weather.  It went really well and the clouds started rolling in just as a finished my run.  Fortunately I had just enough time to run to the grocery store to pick up some ice cream because milk shakes were in demand.  Duh!

A runner needs their calcium right?!

But Saturday was a whole different story.  I woke up bright and early to chilly and rainy conditions.  It was Team Momentum’s final weekend group run before their half marathon and fortunately we had a few brave souls out on the Lakefront Path.  It wasn’t so bad on the way out but when we turned around we were met with some brutal winds.  A bunch of us are also suffering from allergies and this windy, pollen filled air was not a good combo for the run.  We made a new rule not to look anyone in the eye during a run because we were all a pretty gnarly sight.

I haven’t really mentioned much about this but I am also a figure skating coach.  Don’t worry, I don’t have a figure skating blog too!  Our students had their end of the year ice show and Saturday was the main and final event.  It was a late night coming off of an early morning but it was a great success and so fun to watch everyone get to show off their end of the year routines.  I will say however that it was a relief to have that event over and it also means the skating season is coming to an end for the summer.  This is perfect timing because I’m not sure how much more I can handle trying to balance on my skates these days.

Sunday was another ugly day but I never mind a rainy Sunday when I plan to stay inside and clean and head to mass.  I was also fortunate enough to get a nice Mother’s Day call into my mom and a visit with my mother-in-law too.  Rock also surprised me with what might be the most perfect Mother To Be Day gift.

Yes that is cereal.  I love this particular brand of cereal and we can only find it out East.  So he had a case shipped to me.  Now if that isn’t true love, I don’t know what is.  I am a lucky girl for sure….and stocked up for awhile too!

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the wonderful moms.  How was your weekend?

  1. This weekend was gross weather-wise. Perfect for doing NOTHING. Which is what I did. And I’m like you–there are certain things that I have to bring back with me from the east because I cannot find them here. Reasons that I wish I checked bags for $1000 Alex!

    • It would have been the perfect weekend to Netflix or On Demand and just relax on the couch had I not had a ton of work. I’m looking forward to those days soon though 🙂

  2. Happy soon to be mother’s day! Haha, I want to see what you look like trying to balance on the skates. Our weather has been wacko too. Hot and humid one day, chilly and thunderstorms the next. It’s been insane. But I guess it’s better than the normal 100 degrees it would be.
    Enjoy your cereal!

  3. We are getting the rain now and should be here all weekend. :/ I do love the rain and I especially love running in the rain but because we have our State track meet this weekend, I am not too thrilled about the rain. Sitting at a meet all day long when it is raining is no fun!
