As we approach the holiday weekend, I want to take a minute to remind you to take some time for yourself and rest. Everyone needs to recharge their batteries on occasion and this 3 day holiday is the perfect time!
Many of you will be racing and I hope after that you will kick your feet up, grab a cold bottle of
beer water and eat some frozen grapes. Red grapes are tastier then green when frozen, in case you are wondering, and the kids love them!
Although, I won’t have my feet up in Miami this weekend, I will be at the lake, on the boat or lounging on my patio. A tropical location is NOT necessary to enjoy some R&R.
So grab a cold beverage, a lounge chair or hammock, and commence recharging. We have a full summer ahead of
busting our asses bustling activity and this may be the last chance you get to take a few minutes for yourself.
How do will you be recharging yourself this weekend?

Love this post! It is totally what I need this weekend–just some SLEEP!! 🙂
You deserve it. I have a “just got chicked” headband for you, my wonderful Ragnar volunteer! One for Kate too!
YAYYYY!!! So pumped for volunteer day! 🙂
Amen to your message today!!! Rest, adult beverage, rest, eat, adult beverage, eat, play with the kids and repeat throughout the four day weekend!!! You guys have a blast and be sure to have fun!
Be safe, REST & have fun! And don’t forget to try those frozen grapes. 🙂
Ah….recharging yah? I guess I have been doing that not running since April 16th in Boston….right? Ya…doin’ a lot of other things…but I doin’ on my own terms and not according to a rigid schedule….so I guess that qualifies as recharging?
But ya right to take time for yourself and your family and your friends and just “chill-out”….and Memorial Day weekend is a great time to do it! And…it will be nice and toasty this weekend…so why kill yourself sweating when you don’t need to build the sweat acclimation response till early fall when ya facing what usually turns out to be a toasty Chicago Marathon! You got all summer to run….so take a break and enjoy whatever!
Sometimes….to love your sport or your passion….to be the best you can be….ya got to give-it-up for awhile….and “recharge”…..just as you promoting here in this post. TTF you are a Wonder-Woman and I am nothing more than an Echo shouting across that vast canyon….runners, bikers, swimmers or whatever…..take a break….ya deserve it!
As I like to say….”There can be no gain….without the pain of giving some time up”…..if taking a break be painful (as it can be to some of us run-sweat junkies out there)!
There is a time to ramp-it up and a time to rest and relax….this is a time for the latter!
Have a great weekend and don’t at all feel guilty about your downtime. Your body needs it, you know that.
So very true but somehow harder for me to do – but therefore that much more important to do!! That’ll be my goal after the Soldier Field 10. Funny that you mention frozen grapes. A friend of mine mentioned that earlier this month and I’d never heard/thought about it. Went home and put a bowl of red grapes in the freezer. Genious!! Kids & I love em (don’t think hubby has tried them yet). Enjoy your relaxing weekend!!
The frozen grapes are a great snack in the warm weather. I LOVE them! Take some down time, your body and mind will thank you. 🙂
i am SO jealous of your boatage this weekend! I will definitely have a few beers though, and catch up on some reading and napping 🙂
Love having a todder for the napping excuse. 🙂 Have fun!
Soldier 10 then to Michigan City Beach on Sunday for a bit of open water swimming 🙂
