School Day Run and Date Night

Today is the last day of school before the holiday and as I said in last week's post, there are many reasons why I am looking forward to Thanksgiving.  

School has been more laid back than normal due to half days during conference week, so yesterday I planned to "finally" attend gym class with my students for a little run outside.  They've been asking for a while so I surprised them.  Even though we only ran a mile, everyone had a great time and the kids were totally amazed that I could actually run that far!  

Last evening my husband and I went to one of our favorite restaurants for a date night.  These nights are far and few between so we took advantage of the empty house and headed downtown for a relaxing meal.  Because it was a special night out, I wore my new winter white sequined mini and the heels that I recently picked up on a killer sale.  

At the end of the night, our bellies were full of delicious food and we had a nice time.  

As for running, I am planning on attempting an 8 mile aggressive cutdown after school today.  My goal is for the second four miles to be faster than the first.  On Thursday morning I probably will run around 5 miles before sitting down to an old fashioned, Pennsylvania Dutch Thanksgiving feast cooked by my sister-in-law.  I can't wait!!  Enjoy your day!
