Party people

Good morning bloggies!

I have some very disappointing news...

my knees hurt.

What?!?! I have been a runner for years now and my knees have NEVER hurt after a run! Blame the curse of genetics... my dad has knee problems (of course he says he feels great today!) plus I'm sure all those months of running at a pretty low weight took a toll on my joints as well. My shins hurt too, but I've had shin splints on an off since I was 14 so that's no surprise. Instead of going on my second run of the weekend I'm going for a walk with my mom. I hope my knees (and shins!) feel better soon =/

Anyway, I'm sure you all want to know how the party went last night! Turns out it wasn't a surprise party because the birthday girl found out, but it was still a good time!
I made some cupcakes and one of Kelly (Eric's sister, the birthday girl)'s friends helped me decorate...

Can you tell her favorite color is green?
There were LOTS of snacks...

I had a few slices of party pizza, 1 wing (not too good, didn't go back for more) a couple handfuls of mini cookies, and a cupcake...

I did eat a lot, and I have to say I don't feel too great. I am very ready to get back into eating healthy again, it IS entirely possible to get sick of junk food!! Gimme some fruits and veggies, stat!

Last night was a lot of fun, but I am ready for my R&R Sunday for sure.
Nick stayed over here at the 'rents so he could get some sleep before his regatta (he leaves early in the morning and I'm SURE the party was an all-nighter, we skipped out early) so I was up pretty early as well.

I made myself a cereal bowl- 1/2 cup Kashi U, 1/2 cup Flaxplus granola, 1 big banana sliced and 1/2 cup nonfat soy milk. Filled me up well, and I can't wait to go for that walk with my mom in a bit!

I'll be posting again this afternoon, and then it's back to my usual afternoon posting. Have a great morning everyone!

Since you're a runner you probably know all of the 'tricks' for dealing with aches and pains, but have you tried Smart Feet? (just google it, if you haven't). My doctor is a marathon runner and recommended them to me when I was having some knee pain associated with running. They made a huge difference!
