Another fun weekend

My friend Susy who I meet while living in Wiesbaden, Germany, came through Atlanta this past weekend. We laughed at how after 2 1/2 years all the kids look the same just so much bigger. We soaked up each others company and enjoyed dinner at California Pizza Kitchen downtown at Atlantic Station. It didn't take long at all for the kids to warm up to each other. While eating dinner, Susy and Mark and Steve and I sat at one table while all the kids sat at their own...it was so much fun for all. Susy and Mark are now stationed at Wright Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio. Mark has a TDY down in Florida, so they all went to take advantage of the Air Force flipping the hotel bill while they enjoyed Disney World and Sea World. Wish Steve could get a TDY down there.

My birthday isn't until next month, but Susy surprised me with an early treat. She spoiled me with Paula Deen goodies, a yummy caramel candle and of course Lindt chocolates and some new gummies to snack on during some of my long runs. It's next month when we are meeting up again in Nashville....I am doing the half marathon and Susy is doing the full marathon. Susy has been raving about these new gummies by Luna. You eat them in the middle of a long run to give you some extra umph. Thank you Susy!

I've never tried the Luna ones but used the Clif Shots on my last half marathon and they were great for giving the carb boost you need later in the race.
