Hello Summer(ish) weather

Nothing screams hello beautiful season (aka my birthday season) like waking up at 5 am and it being light out and running outside in the afternoon and breaking a swear in just a sports bra and shorts (yes..i like being (almost) naked while running...i don't like being confined in my clothes!!

I woke up this AM for a wonderful spin class with the most amazing music.  I really enjoy the spin instructor however there is this women that i always tend to sit behind and it drives me baananas and I have to get it off my chest or I might explode (ok I won't but still).  First of all, she is way to too to be "naturally" tan as we live in CP and god knows there is not sun like FL sun yet to be that tan.  Secondly, when the instructor says to pick up the pace i swear she just spins so face i get dizzy and want to get off my bike and give her a snickers bar so she can go on with the rest of her day....she's that insane it's like unbelieveable...words can not describe.  Third of all, ok i have no third of all...maybe she is a nice lady but I just can't get past the tan and crazy spinning of the wheel.  Rant over back to nice Amy.

After spin, I quickly showered dressed and headed to work.  Worked a full day (which in my case meant some fantastic outside time with my "boys" and then feeding some fish in the pond) went to one student's house where I was able to do what I love doing and hear his use his language appropriately (HUGE!)  After the work day was over, I drove into town which was followed by me attempting to find the most perfect place to park and stake out my run.  I ran and then took a pit stop (TMI Sorry) and then ventured out in the beautiful sun to run some more then stopped in the park to do some push ups and abs and then headed back to the car to call it a day (run wise).  I ran 4 miles total and was sweating like a mess.

That my friends is a beautiful thing.  I am now off to read my current issue of New York Magazine.  I just read Newsweek and learned a ton of info on Bin Laden and the Navy Seasl (I'm apolitical...Shout out to my GMIL for the newsweek subscription)

Time to go read in the sun

Derby Day

In my house, Derby Day (the day in which the Kentucky Derby is run) is a big deal.  My husband is a huge horse racing fan and gambler in general and derby day is always something we look forward to.  It just so happens it also falls on (next year!) or around Cinco de Mayo.  This year it is two days later but next year my friends, next year it is on Cinco De Mayo, which means big things in my world.
Derby de Mayo  means:
-mint julips

unfortunately, that is next year.

This year means:
-husband + me at Saratoga Casino 

A little recap as to where i've been/what i've been up to:
-Work has been busy ....Spring/end of the school year at my school means these bad boys  AKA tiring but soo fun my boys love it!
-Ran at the  last weekend for my friend.  It was a ton of fun minus the getting to the race late and starting late.  However I had a great time and it was a beautiful day for the zoo!
-also ran in Rye and got the view of the  and the wonderful Long Island Sound a view that never disappoints especially when viewed with friends.
-had a great brunch at  with my bestie while reading the Sunday times and drinking some champagne...AHHHmazing!!
-Celebrated Cinco de Mayo with some of my fabulous co-workers at La Fiesta.

Running has been going well I have had the pleasure of running to the golf course in the mornings and seeing the amazing sun shine over the golf course on my runs lately.  I <3 it.  I had a hard time this week getting out of bed at 5 am.  I did manage it on Wednesday AM for Body Pump ( Do not worry I also went monday night!) I am thinking of going again tomorrow AM before my family celebration of mother's day!
I'm so excited to have my mom and dad come visit for mother's day tomorrow!!

Ok time to get this show on the road
Saratoga Casino here we come!
