VB RnR and BIH Weekly Wrap #3

Good Morning Internet!! how is everybody doing today? I'm a bit sleepy, but all good.

Week 2 of training was not very productive, I feel it was pretty lazy and I really need to pick it up, and stop slacking!

Today I'm linking up with Holly and Tricia for their Weekly Wrap post.

Monday - Zumba with Susan, and Weights
Thursday - 6 miles with Fleet Feet Group
Saturday - 3 mile hike and 1 mile run with my Brother
Sunday- 6 easy miles

Monday I headed out Zumba, because for me, there is about 20 zumba days left at Art In Motion fitness. They are closing at the end of August and as of this moment, they do not have a new location. This makes me very sad, this is going to be a huge change for me, because going to Art in Motion has been a part of my routine for 5 years.

Zumba was great fun, I danced and sweated a lot!

Then Weights with Roger at the YMCA. It felt pretty hard, but nothing was sore the next day, so it's likely I wasn't really trying hard.

On Wednesday there was a kids race and a 5K in City Island, my son wanted to do the Kids Race, so we headed out there after I picked him up from Day Camp. He came in second of the kids group, and he was very proud of himself. I was also very proud of my little Nugget ! He tells me that he is now ready to do a 10K!

We celebrated with 20 minutes at the arcade, and he won enough tickets for 2 Dum-Dum lollypops.

Thursday I was very sleepy and feeling lazy, but I headed out to the Fleet Feet group run. I hadn't been there since April, because baseball taken my Thursday nights. I felt good to run with the group again. We did 6 miles in hot and humid weather, and it felt amazing!

Friday I headed to Delaware to celebrate my Older Sister's Birthday. She wanted to go to the Casino in Delaware, so we met there. Casinos are not my type of places, but I followed along because it was her birthday and that was what she wanted to do.

Illegal picture at the Casino. I didn't know taking pictures at the casino is not allowed.

I was up way past my bedtime... but enjoyed time with my siblings!

On Saturday I was all sorts of annoyed. I had planed to drive back to Harrisburg to go to zumba, but got guilted into staying for breakfast.... My sister got me with this one "Is Zumba more important to you, than having breakfast with us?" There was no other safe way to answer that. So I stayed.

My brother invited me to run, but we couldn't agree on where to run. I wanted to run around town, he wanted to drive to a local park. He refused to run in Oxford because he doesn't like to run in streets, and I refused to drive to the park, because we didn't have time to waste driving around. It was getting hot, and late. We didn't run.

So short of miles, with no zumba, we headed back to Harrisburg and we went to Wildwood to do the loop and a couple of the trails. Brother #1 saw a snake on a tree and almost took off running.

My brother #2 challenged me to a 1 mile run, to see who could run faster.

His time : 7:02
My time : 7:20

Brother #1 took a 5 minute nap, and he told us he was the real winner.

During our hike we talked about our favorite movies, the are both fans of Quentin Tarantino, and whey they asked me what my favorite movie was, I couldn't think of a single movie!

Sunday - 6 miles run in Hershey. It was hot, the sun was blaring.

I drove back to Chester County to take my brothers back home. And celebrated Father's day with my family.

After I got back, I realized that one of my favorite movies is Center Stage, and 10 Things I Hate About You. I can't really explain why, but I love those two movies.

Miles - 13 miles
Zumba - 1
Weights 2- 30 minute sessions.
Awesome concerts - 0 :~(

Your turn, how was your week?
Do you prefer to run in town, or in the local park?
Do you enjoy going to Casinos?
Has your brother/ sister challenge you to a 1 mile race? or longer?
What is your favorite Movie?


  1. 10 Things I Hate About You is a good one, I love Good Will Hunting & the Jason Bourne movies. So really, what I'm saying is I like Matt Damon. It's hard to think of a favorite movie, because there are so few movies that I truly want to watch over & over again.

    1. Yes Those movies are good Jessie! I think my favorite Matt Damon movie is Oceans Eleven.

  2. Congratulations on your son taking second in the race. My favorite movie has to be Tommy Boy! I laugh like I never saw it before everytime....haha

    1. Thank you F&F ladies !!

      Tommy Boy is Hilarious !! I've seen that movie lots of times with my brothers !

  3. I really love that your son's reward for doing well in the race was the arcade. I think that's such a wonderful treat, and so much healthier than celebrating with food or something like that. Seriously, I LOVED reading that!

    1. Thank you Ali! I have to admit it was a lot of fun to do the arcade !

  4. Congratulations to your son on placing second in his group at the 5K! So exciting that he wants to do a 10K, too. You've got a budding runner just waiting to explode. =)

    Wow, you are speedy! Way to nail that 7:20 mile! LOL at your other bro who said his nap made him the real winner. =)

    I'm not huge on casinos, either, but I have heard they are finicky about pictures! It looks like your sister's bday celebration was a good time!

    1. Thank you Emily! I hope he grows to enjoy running!

      We had fun hanging out with my sister, we rarely see her outside of her work!

  5. I think I have been on that trail behind Wegmans! Does it come out at some town homes or apartments or something? If it's the one I'm thinking of, I discovered it when I dropped Paul off at the creek to fish and I went on a run.

    1. Yes, that's the one! Right by the Conodoquinet creek, the abandoned road and by a lot of town homes. Really nice run!

  6. Why is picture taking not allowed at casinos? I'm not much of a gambler, so no, I don't like to go. But when I went to Vegas with my sister, we had fun checking them out!

    1. I don't know why Wendy, but we get Yelled at by security whenever they see us taking our selfies. Las Vegas is so cool! I wish I could take my sister there, she would love it !

  7. Both you and your son are speed demons! Woot! It doesn't seem like a slacker week to me.

    I prefer to run in town if I'm on my own (since it's less likely I'll have a run in with a bear or moose that way) but I love the trails if I'm with a buddy or my TNT group. When I'm in Madrid I'll run in the parks.

    1. Thank you Raquelita! You are too kind ! I don't mind running in the park, as long as we have time and it's not too far. But strangely, I will drive really far for a race.

  8. I do not like Casinos at all, I feel I am throwing money out the window. I prefer running in the woods / park rather than on the hot pavement. As long as it is safe !
    I probably would have given up zumba for some time with my family too.
    and I love the flower crown ! My daughter did it and it is the cutest photo !
    Have a great week.

    1. Karen, those filters in snapchat are pretty funny!

      No casinos for me, I prefer to throw my money at races!

  9. Congrats to your son on his age group award!

    1. Thank you Kathryn!

  10. Congrats to your son in his race! I'm LOL about winning enough tickets for 2 Dum Dums. I can't tell you how many thousands of tickets we've won over the years to only get a handful of Tootsie Rolls! LOL. I've only been to a casino a few times and always limit what I'll spend beforehand. There aren't my thing. If it's daytime, I'd rather be outside doing something else. That was a super speedy mile you ran! Very funny comment from the brother who didn't run!!! Thanks for linking with us Ana!

    1. Holly, those arcade games have taken a lot of our money, and the tickets never add up to more than gum! Thank you for the Link Up Holly!

  11. Ok so it's Wednesday when I'm reading this but I'm sleepy too! Man all those 5:45 mornings last week has finally caught up with me. Ha I wonder why taking pictures are illegal at the casino? We go and it's fun to play with $20 on the penny slots. We are not big spenders!!
    My sister challenge me to a run? Only if a bear is chasing us and then I'd so trip her! :)

    1. It's Ok Tricia! If it helps, it's Thursday and I'm still sleepy !

      My sister and her husband gamble a lot, and they also win a lot !
