A Plane! A Plane!

This past weekend, I found myself up in Baltimore for a Sailabration!  It was the bicentennial celebration of the War of 1812!  Kevin had heard about it weeks ago, and was determined to go.  So I gladly tagged along (and invited my sister and nephew).

It runs through June 19th, so there’s still time to go see some of the ships!

But before I share some photos from that with you, I’m pretty eager to tell you about my track workout last week.  I know, I know, again?  I’m sure you’re probably tired of hearing about my track workouts, but I’m going to be honest.  They make me super excited! It’s my chance to dig deep, and prove to myself that I can do it.  It’s also a chance for me to think about how badly I really want it, and how much I’m willing to work for it.  And that’s what I love about it.

So last Thursday, I headed to the track, with the goal of accomplishing 5×800.  This time, my goal was 3:55.  The last time I did the Yasso 800s, I easily got them all under 4:00, so I figured it’s time to up the pace.  I’m pleased to say, I was successful! 🙂

#1- 3:49

#2- 3:49

#3- 3:54

#4- 3:53

#5- 3:43

My first 2 were a bit faster than I wanted, but I was still able to finish all 5 strong, and (slightly) under goal time.  I’m hoping in a few weeks, I can shoot for 3:50 goal!

#PROOF! (i forgot my footpod in my other shoes, which is why the distance reads zero. i promised i did run that 800!)

Annnnnnyway, back to this weekend.  So, in honor of the War of 1812, there were tons of ships at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, and around Ft. McHenry.  In addition, there was an air show, featuring planes and helicopters from the Navy and Coast Guard, so we headed to Ft. McHenry to see what it was all about.

We saw some helicopters

And planes

And different planes

And then there were the dare-devil planes. You can see video clips of their stunts here.  Believe me, the Blue Angels are insane!

Every time they got close to each other, I held my breath! Those Blue Angels pilots sure are brave! (and very trusting of each other!!!)

In between the different planes, Joey and I tried our hand at a photo shoot.

Sadly, the 3-yr old beat me in the “look like a model” pose.  I was trying to channel Tyra and clearly failed.  Whomp whomp. (also, please excuse the wild hair, it was windy)

It was a great way to spend a beautiful day in Baltimore!  It was the perfect way to SAILebrate my great track workout! 🙂 (haha, I’m obsessed, I know)

How was your weekend? Anything to SAILebrate? (yes, I will be using this for a while)
