Hi! It’s really late, and while sleep is a priority, so is this post. I told y’all I would have my Slimmer for Summer Week II recap up yesterday as well as my training plan for Half #5, but clearly that didn’t happen. I was too busy between an internship meeting, lunch date, errands, exercise, and packing.
After a quickie cardio + k-bell workout at the WREC this morning, I got in my car and drove HOME to surprise my dad for Father’s Day. He definitely wasn’t expecting my arrival! I had to keep my travel plans on the down low (a.k.a. off the blog) because my dad doesn’t miss a post :)
Before I hit the road, I picked up my free b.day drink at Starbucks. It was an extra special treat today, as I haven’t bought an espresso drink in three whole weeks!
hydration for the HOT drive
venti iced (2/3 decaf) soy latte please

It was a b-e-a-u-tiful drive along the river and over the mountains. If only I had a convertible ;)
I got home around 5:30pm – hungry! – so I picked up sushi for dinner for the ‘rents and I:
I had one of my favorite rolls – tempura prawn, tempura yam, avocado, and green onion – and shared a veggie roll – almond butter, tofu, carrot, spinach – with my mom… plus some edamame – SO good!
We spent the rest of our evening catching up on the couch watching So You Think You Can Dance with a special treat!
Local, organic ice cream a la arcata scoop
Coffee & Chocolate Orange Chip
My night was complete with an unexpected phone chat with my brother who lives (a polar opposite life from mine) in Montana. We talked elk hunting.
A day filled with all of my favorite things – I am a happy gal.

Turns out my time at home may be cut shorter than I had expected; I have a lot of work and play I want to squeeze in, but I’ll be getting to those running posts A.S.A.P.
