It’s My 30th Birthday and I’ll Run if I Want To!

Posted on: March 26, 2012

This weekend, like most, was done before I knew it even started. My birthday was Sunday, but we began our celebration festivities Friday night with tacos from Torchy’s Tacos ::

Saturday morning was a laid back but productive. I managed to get some cleaning done, laundry put away and relaxing with the girls while Jonathan and Joseph slept in.

Around 11, things took a turn for the crazy, when we discovered that Hannah ate an entire bottle of children’s chewable vitamins. Like, rushing to the ER crazy. {I have a whole post about it for you tomorrow.}  But despite all the drama from the morning and afternoon, we went ahead with my birthday dinner party {which, thankfully, was only a mile from our house since I was slightly paranoid to leave Hannah}. It ended up being a good way to close out a rather emotional day.

Sunday was my actual birthday. We woke up early and headed downtown so I could run in the Capital 10K race with my friend, Adriane.

It was a really fun race, but I was surprised at how packed it was. Since it’s a “fun run” there were a lot more casual walkers than I expected, which was challenging for the first 2-3 miles as we weaved around the crowds. I initially wanted to finish in under an hour, but with all the masses came in at just over an hour {1:03:17}. Given the 20K+ people participating, and being stuck right in the middle of the crowd, we still made really great time.

Thanks to the back of my shirt, I got quite a very “happy birthday!”s while running. 🙂

The weekend ended quietly, spending time with good friends and our missional community.

How was your weekend?

My daughter once also decided to chew a whole bunch of chewable vitamins. Thankfully, it wasn’t the entire bottle and they contained no iron so after a call with Poison Control, i felt way more at ease! Sure made me more aware of where I was putting the vitamins! Good job on the running – I wish excerise/ running was a passion of mine ;).

Happy Birthday!! Sounds like it was a great one (except for the trip to the ER) My husband told me he ate an entire bottle of chewable vitamins when he was a kid. I just had to laugh…that explains so much about him now. Haha! 🙂 Looking forward to your adventurous story.

What a fun birthday adventure! Cap 10k is a crazy full race, your time is great! sounds like a wonderful birthday weekend! I’m drooling over the tacos.
