Everyone say, â€œHi, GrandpaHTP!â€
Henry and I flew (solo! and we clearly survived!) down to Florida for a super mini family reunion.Â Although Iâ€™ve seen my grandfather a few times since, this was only the second time that heâ€™s seen Henry.Â They first met when Henry was about 8 weeks old.
Doesnâ€™t my grandpa look like heâ€™s doing better?Â Heâ€™s 96 years old (I think â€“ I always confuse his birth year up!), but heâ€™s doing a LOT better than he was last year or even a few months ago.
We had a really nice visit.Â Henry and I stayed in a nearby hotel and drove over in between naps and bedtimes to hang out.Â The weather in Florida was foggy but warmed up quickly â€“ it was nearly 80 one day!Â That was a nice change of pace from the Charlotte snow.
On the way to the airport in Orlando, I met up with my buddy Healthy Ashley and her husband Richard.Â Ashley and I were great friends when I lived in Orlando and did a lot of training and racing together.Â I spectated as she did her first Half Ironman (it should be noted that it was also her very first triathlon EVER), and we did a Metric Century bike ride together.Â Ashley eventually moved to North Carolina and got married in a beautiful wedding ceremony.Â Then she was in a horrible bike accidentâ€¦ Remember that?Â Thank God, sheâ€™s fully recovered!Â And then she moved BACK to Florida.Â And now sheâ€™s a CrossFit addict.Â Oh, did I mention sheâ€™s 37 weeks pregnant?!Â Woman is still totally in better shape than I am!Â Hah.
Baby out, baby in.
And now Iâ€™m back homeâ€¦
And eating healthy eats.Â Oh kitchen, how I missed you.
Plans for Today:
Run 8 miles per my training plan.Â Oh man.
Organize my desk.Â Double oh man.
Pay bills â€“ theyâ€™re late!
I hope you have a fabulous Monday <3 <3 <3
