29.5, 15, 1, 518 and 9,000,002

29.5 That’s the amount of miles that I ran last week.  I ended up with a total of 32.5 but I walked three miles on Thursday so technically I’m still under 30 for the week.  I’m not upset about though because I ran 10.5 miles on Saturday on the Legacy Trail and it was epic.


Okay I will.

Double digits sure feels nice.  It’s not something I can accomplish every day but I’ll take it once a week all day long, I’m still excited about it, in case you couldn’t tell.  I also ran 5 more on Sunday.  Fifteen.  Fifteen is my weekend total of miles run.

After my long run on Saturday I still had a lot of energy so I decided to build a fire pit at the new house.  One fire pit.  It turned out pretty sweet if I do say so myself but then so did my last one.  I think I missed my calling.  Is there a career in fire pit building? I would nail that job.

One.  That’s also the number of Christmas trees that I put up in the Nokomis house and it’s the number of nutcrackers but the nutcracker is rather large.  I got him at a garage sale for 4 bucks, score!

The tree is one that I’ve had for a million years and it has definitely seen better days but I dressed it up anyway and sat in in a galvanized bin and I think it looks all right.

..by next year it may look just like a Charlie Brown Christmas tree.

Nine.  That’s the number of Sheepshead that MacGyver caught while I was running and building the fire pit.  Sheepshead are fish that have the most beautiful teeth ever.  They seriously look like they just visited the dentist for a cleaning.  It’s uncanny and unfair.  We should have at least two rows of perfect teeth!

But beyond that they taste delicious.  Seriously delicious.  I would know because that’s what we had for dinner last night.  I would eat like that every night if I could.  I’m not even kidding.

518.  That’s the amount of active minutes I racked up on my Motiv ring this week, the most ever by the way.  Probably all from chasing Hank around.

9,000,002. That’s the amount of times that Hank escaped and ran out of the house and took a field trip around the new neighborhood.  It’s also the same amount of times I had to chase his little ass.

I ain’t even sorry about it lady, you need the steps.

That’s it, my weekend by the numbers.

Let’s do something fun, tell me something about your week and use a number.

  1. 2- the number of glasses of wine I had Saturday night.
    3- the number of trips I made to Fleet Farm over the weekend
    1-the number of Christmas movies I watched on Sunday. “Christmas Vacation” is always the first one we watch and I think we have every line memorized.

  2. The human looking teeth on that fish is creepy!!

    0 -amount of times I ran over the weekend. 2.78 (sorry) miles I ran today.
    4 – number of hours I slept in 2 days

    Nice fire pit!

  3. Good job getting the miles in! Woo hoo! Okay, am desperately trying to unsee that sheepshead mouth—there’s something about human-looking body parts on animals that kinda freaks me out! (you don’t live near a nuclear waste dump, do you?)

    • It is Florida so you never know. After the hurricane MacGyver and I drove to the dump to drop off the trees we pulled out of the canal and we saw some sort of liquid literally bubbling up out of the Earth. It was so odd and completely out of place but we never found out what it was so yeah, I wouldn’t be surprised if we caught a snook sporting human eyes one of these days, lol!
