Sorry I was MIA there for several days. Choosing not to count calories and not running leaves me with very little to talk about. Today I get to go running though!! Yea!! I'm excited. I've missed getting in that exercise every day. I agree with Sara that I need to be doing more cross-training but running is easy for me to plan on doing. When I get back from vacation and start training for my half-marathon, I'll have to incorporate cross-training and strength workouts.
My 4th of July was good. We had planned on coming into DC to watch the fireworks but it was raining/storming so we decided we'd rather stay home where it was nice and dry. We could see part of the fireworks from our balcony anyways. I'm a little ADD when it comes to fireworks...I like the first 5 minutes but then I get bored.
We did find out that Stephen's aunt and her family will be leaving the cabin a week before we leave so we'll have some time on vacation where there aren't 10 people there. Stephen and I will have the cabin to ourselves for 3 days and then his dad will be there with us for the remaining 4 days. That makes me feel so much better about our vacation.
And have I mentioned lately how excited I am to get some alone time starting next Thursday?? I'm so ready for Stephen to leave! That sounds like I don't like him at all. I was just thinking this weekend how much fun the two of us have hanging out and doing our things. But I'm ready for some Marissa time. Stephen's 14 year old brother comes in on Friday and we'll head to the beach for a few days and do some DC sightseeing and then they'll head to Canada and I'll be by myself. I'm sure I'll enjoy the first couple of days and then I'll start missing Stephen like crazy.
