Tractors and a Half Marathon

You just can't beat summer weekends.

Once or twice a year, my husband and his dad go to a tractor show. This weekend, we got to attend the Pioneer Steam and Tractor Show. We also got to bring a special guest with us; my little 3-year old brother, Evan! He is really in to tractors this year, so he had a super great time.

John Deer is his favorite!

Before we went to the tractor show, I ran/walked a mile on the treadmill. At the tractor show, we probably walked another mile. It was an active day, and a beautiful one at that!

This morning was quite beautiful, too. My husband and I woke up extra early this morning to go support our friend, Mindy, at her first 1/2 marathon. We stayed up late last night making fun signs for the event. We got a lot of thumbs up, smiles and even a few shouts of joy!

My silly husband.
 It was truly inspiring to watch the runners finish. It was even more inspiring to watch one of my best friends finish the race! She did an awesome job, finishing way faster than she ever expected. I'm one proud friend!

After the race, we went to Bob Evans for breakfast. I got as healthy of a meal as I could have got there, thanks to their low-calorie portion of the menu, it wasn't too hard to find a healthier choice! I got the veggie omelet with a side of fruit and whole wheat toast. It came out to just under 430 calories for the meal. Paired with a tall glass of water, I'd say I did pretty well!

As for the rest of the day, I may have another mile in me this evening. I am going to try to switch it up this week and run 2 laps, walk a lap then run the final lap to complete my mile. I am easing in to running again this month. I am doing as much as possible to avoid any injury before our Color Run in Buffalo next month! Taking two months off of running was a bad idea, but it happens! The important thing here is to never give up!
