Long Run and Celebration

Wow! Saturday was a very eventful day, I am still recovering from it and it's Monday. The day started out with a long run (8 miles) around the Charles river.

Distance: 8 miles
Duration: 1:07:55
Mile 1: 8:52
Mile 2: 8:33
Mile 3: 8:36
Mile 4: 8:21
Mile 5: 8:03
Mile 6: 8:28
Mile 7: 8:27
Mile 8: 8:32

I felt very strong during the run. I was a little nervous because I usually do my long runs on Sundays, but because of my brother's birthday celebration I decided to do the long run on Saturday. Sometimes it takes me a mile or two before I get into the run, but today I felt good from the start. Before I went out for the run I had 2 small pieces of toast with peanut butter. Once home and showered I had a yogurt with a small handful of granola and a small apple.

After my second breakfast I met Evan (he went to the gym while I ran) at Starbucks for coffee and a little people watching. Evan and I LOVE people watching!

We walked around the prudential afterwards trying to find my brother a birthday presents and maybe something special to wear that evening. I ended up buying a new dress and Evan got a new shirt. After shopping we came home and warmed up some leftovers for lunch. 

After a little R&R, we started to get ready for our evening out. Here I am in my new dress!

We met my parents and brother at our favorite Chinese resturant in Chinatown: The New Golden Gate. The food was incredible, I am still thinking about it!

After Dinner we went over to the Financial District for my brother's surprise birthday party at the Revolution Rock bar. The bar was packed with all my brother's friends, our extended family and a some of my friends. There were so many people there and we all danced the night away until the bar closed at 2am. My feet hurt me more from the dancing than the run . Once home (at 3!!) I had a mini grill cheese sandwich! YUM!!!
