Sunday Run-day

I was excited to get up this morning and go for a run with Ashley around the plantation.  As you saw yesterday, it's completely gorgeous in Hilton Head, and a run around the plantation sounded like a great plan.  Before our run, we ate some fruit and played with you-know-who....

I got my Nike's on and we headed out.
I warned Ashley prior to the run I needed to take it kind of easy on this run since I'm still nursing that knee and that I might not want to go too far.  But she convinced me to do the big 4-5 mile loop which includes bridges over the marsh and going by the marina- some pretty views.  I couldn't say no and she said we'd walk if it bothered me, so I agreed...  Yeah... my knee started bothering me after about 2 miles.  Great...  So that wasn't fun...  We walked on and off, but I think I need to look into treatment this week again if I want to kick this injury once and for all.  I can't believe I felt it again after resting it so long.  Rrrrrr!  I'm totally discouraged.

Lunch today was out at a new restaurant called Woody's.

I can't believe Mark and Ashley are coming up on one year of marriage already!
I had a delicious salad with a giant crabcake on top.

The girls stopped at the Tanger Outlets to check out the Banana Republic Factory Store (my fav).  I got two dresses and a t-shirt.  I may be wearing one dress to the Healthy Living Summit Cocktail Party in a few weeks!

I made a batch of banana soft serve for the fam!  It was a big hit!

Before heading out of town, we all went to the pool for one last float.  This time I had water with fresh strawberries floating in it instead of margaritas, since I was driving. 

My trip home:
95 North:


(the sun was behind the clouds, glowing :)

and finally 77 North:

It actually got really stormy between Columbia and Charlotte.  Good thing Greg's car has 4-wheel drive and I'm used to driving in crappy weather...
I made it home around 9:30pm.  The trip felt too short.  I am wondering if I should have stayed another day...  :(  I miss my family already!

Sounds like your HHI trip was fun and that you got lots of family time in!

I am so sorry to hear that you are still struggling with your knee injury. I know how frustrating that must be.

HHI is beautiful. Glad you had a good trip!

So seriously, when are going to run our a race together? We should both be rehabbed enough by the end of the fall or early winter right? Gotta keep hope alive somehow :)

I'm so sorry about your knee :( HHI looks like it was an amazing time though! I would not have wanted to leave.
