On Friday the weather was beautiful with a high in the low 70's. So after working on the garage and doing some yard work we went for a drive over in the north end of Boise and decided to have lunch at a place called 13th Street Pub & Grill. We sat outside while we enjoyed our food and drinks. I had a club sandwich and a glass of white sparking wine called the Sofia Coppola.

I also asked her if she has ran the Idaho Potato Marathon. She has ran it 5 times but can't run it this year cause they are taking a trip to do some trail running. She recommends it but the only bad thing is it gets pretty warm. She said her friend tucked some sponges in her shirt to put water on at every water stop and would squish over her head when she needed to be cooled down. But besides that the course is nice. She gave me some idea's on new running routes so I may use one for my long run this weekend. She said her and her girlfriends take a running trip every year and this year they are going to try to go to NYC. How fun!
After lunch we walked across the street to a little antique shop. I always go straight to the jewelry for some reason. I love to to look at the vintage jewelry. I did see a cute little piece that was pearls with two yellow butterflies at each end. I thought it was a bracelet at first but it was actually something you clip on to the front of your cardigan. I probably would have bought it and made it into a bracelet but their jewelery was too over priced so I didn't.
On Saturday we decided to have lunch at a place called The Crescent No Lawyers Bar & Grill (you can read their website HERE if you want to know the back story of No Lawyers). Our friend Adam met us there and he introduced me to a drink called Flirtini, champagne and pineapple juice, which was pretty yummy.

I headed home to eat and then went to pick up my son. Even though it's nice to spend some alone time with my love and be able to go on a few lunch dates together, we both miss little man. The house is too quite without him. This morning he asked me why I was so tanned haha. I thought it was cute he noticed.
Even though I didn't have a good run yesterday I'm not going to let that affect me this week. Not every run has to be butterflies and rainbows. If it was everyone would be running right? This week I'm going to prep myself mentally and physically for my long run. The big 26.2 is only 6 weeks away!
How do you prep yourself for your double digit runs?
How do you bounce back from a run that wasn't so good?
