Race for the Cure and Family

I was a little bit disappointed with my Race for the Cure 5k in St. Louis this morning. I was going for an all time PR and I was on track for it but my right hamstring was tight when I started and only got worse to the point that I was afraid it would pull.

My time was good and almost 4 minutes better than the same race last year. This 5k is not easy because there are several inclines and it actually starts on one which I hate.


We  hung out for the after the race celebration and came home, walked dogs, ate lunch, showered and crashed out for a nap. That was the best nap that I’ve had in forever!

We took our daughter in law, son, Daniel and Sadie out for dinner for a celebration dinner celebrating my daughter in law’s new career and job in nursing.

We ate at “West End Grill” and they have a  fantastic menu. I had 2 blackberry sangrias which are incredible. I had pan seared trout with poblano corn relish and potatoes with creme fraiche.


We walked around Central West End for a long while. It was a beautiful day in St. Louis and almost no humidity which is rare.

It was good to see my kiddies again and they are a joy. Daniel is spending the night and I’m watching Phinneas and Ferb as I type! 🙂


I’m behind on reading my favorite blogs so hopefully can catch up tomorrow night! It’s been a busy, busy last few days.
