This was also the Manitoba Marathon weekend in the Peg. CONGRATS TO ALL MY RUNNING FRIENDS, YOU'RE AWESOME! Neither Jason nor I participated in any of the runs this year, but we did a damn good job cheerleading. We live right along the full marathon route (around mile 14), so we were out there with folding chairs, hot coffee and clapping hands to hoot 'n' holler and show those running warriors some love! 26.2 miles is a long way to run, and I've been told by distance runners how much it buoys their spirits when people cheer them on. So that's what we did! And again, Juliette was right into it. We taught her how to "woohoo" and everything:)
My own personal running program has been in a backslide lately, but there's nothing like watching mega-fit (and some surprisingly not-so-fit) runners out there breaking personal best records and crossing off "marathon" from their bucket lists to get a girl re-inspired and re-engaged. So, Juliette and I were out with the Bob stroller at 9am this morning gettin' momma's run on!
To cap off the busy but fun weekend we had Father's Day dinner at our house with my folks. Salmon on a cedar cooked on the grill. YUM! Alll in all, a pretty spectacular (and exhausting) weekend. Thank God today is a mommy Monday:)
Btw, if you're in Winnipeg and looking for some fun, the Jazz Festival is on until Sunday. You can check out their schedule here.
