Weekend run- 8 miles

First, the Mini-bike has consumed the boys this weekend. It's been really fun to watch how excited they are about it. We even went across town to buy a new motor for it from a online seller. 
ANYWAYS, this weekend I made awesome peanut butter cookies. I have been trying to eat a lot healthier now that I am moving into a grown up life- yikes! But living with two guys means that I will have to make some yummies for them from time to time. :)
We have had a great weekend so far. Saturday consisted of us running errands, mini-bike, baking, cleaning, and then dinner with the Wagners at Benjys. I had the BEST entree. I asked for a custom pizza: Basil, tomatoes, onions, spinach, tomato sauce, and NO CHEESE- wonderful choice!
We went out for a bit, but I was so exhausted (and really wanting no excuse to not run the next morning) that I asked Anthony to bring me home early. 
This is where the badass part of the weekend begins! I woke up this morning at 7am to walk the pups and get the dishwasher unloaded. I let Anthony sleep until 8am when I reminded him that he had promised to go on my 8 mile run with me. 
Workout Dates:
Dating a fellow runner has never been in my cards and I have never really gotten in on the couple-workouts. But that has changed, Anthony and I have managed a system for us to workout together.... BIKE/ RUN DATES! yes I run while Anthony rides the bike beside me. It's great. This morning on our 8 mile run, we chatted, and enjoyed quality time together. We have great talks during our workout dates, it is almost like we are in our own world for that time. (Except I am sure it got annoying today on our workout date because I kept complaining how DEATHLY hot Houston was!!) It was a wonderful start to the day; Anthony carried the camelback and we toured the trails!!
