Graduation Weekend

23 May

Nope not my graduation weekend..I am too old 😦 This past weekend was my little brothers graduation from high school! Only one more little ralphie left to graduate from high school.

The whole family post graduation

Me and the graduate

Post graduation I helped my mom prepare a feast of pulled pork and italian beef, fruit, chips and dips

And then Sean and I dominated in bags. I think we were 6 for 7 by the end of the party

I had another great weekend at home with my family but I am excited to have a full weekend without any traveling, driving 3.5 hours both ways is rough two weekends in a row.


On the workout front I did a good job of sticking to my PT schedule last week.  It ended up looking like this

  • Monday: 2 miles + elliptical and walking on incline
  • Tuesday: Elliptical and weights
  • Wednesday: 1 mile, stair master, elliptical and abs
  • Thursday: 2 miles outside
  • Friday: elliptical, stairs and leg work
  • Saturday: 1 hour long bike ride and 2 miles outside
Total: 7 miles
This week is technically the first week of my next half marathon training schedule.  I am going to post it sometime tomorrow so if you are a runner and have opinions about these things please stop by then!
Have you celebrated any graduations this grad season?
-So far just my brothers but I think I am attending Sean’s sisters next weekend
How far is does your family live from you?
3.5 hours is close enough that I can go whenever to visit but just far enough that its a journey

    We only have one other family that lives here, some live 3-4 hours away, others 6 hours away, andthe rest live out of state — aka, days of driving. 🙂 Or, just a afternoon on the plane. 🙂

    I live 30 minutes from my family right now, which I love! I go home usually once a week or every other week or so. I have a 2 year old niece that I can’t live without seeing!

    I love bags!!! I’ve got to get that game, but those boards are actually kind of expensive.

    You’re starting training, and I’m desperate for a training plan. But for what, I don’t know.

    No Graduations Yet. But when I go home in July, my little sis is having her Grad party from HS too! 🙂

    I live about 23 hour car ride (3.5 hr Plane ride!) from most of my family, and 20 min car ride from my Sis! It’s hard sometimes, but I love AZ too much right now to leave!

    Congrats to your brother!

    My family lives 4-5 hours away, so I don’t go home very often because it’s too exhausting. Luckily, we are mostly done with graduations and such at this point, so I only really need to go home for holidays and the occasional wedding.

    i’ve never heard it called bags! down south, we call it cornhole. 🙂
    graduations are so much fun! i’m graduating a semester late in december, so a zillion of my friends graduated. it made me really excited to graduate myself.
    i live about an hour and a half from my parents, but i’m starting to get itchy to move out somewhere different. who knows!
