As a matter of fact someone did…and it was Hubster. The original plan for the weekend included a FUN RUN on Saturday morning somewhere in lower Delaware. I, being of sound mind and body convinced Hubster that after spending 4 hours in the car Friday evening for what is normally a 3 hour
tour trip and a late bedtime, 11 pm; that running in a race disguised as FUN at the butt crack of dawn on Saturday morning was probably not safe. Thankfully, he agreed and instead we spent time leisurely relaxing in Ocean City, Maryland.
Ocean City is very quiet at this time of year and although spring had sprung on Friday we woke to a cold morning on Saturday. Because the race plan was cancelled Hubster thought we should spend some quality time in the workout room. For the record, I was not running in the FUN RUN, but I did exercise. I spent 10 minutes pedaling on the elliptical machine before I realized it wasn’t working or more than likely I didn’t know how to turn it on.
What I thought I looked like for the first 5 minutes….
Anyway, I gave up and moved over to the recumbent bike…after 45 minutes, I still did not look like the gal in the photo above.
Oh well, I knew that I could find a cure for my slimming blues…shopping.
First, I suggested we head over to Berlin, MD…it is only about 15 minutes west of Ocean City and has a quaint Main Street loaded with gift and antique style shops.
Because Hubster didn’t get to RUN for FUN he needed to get a fix at the Under Armor Outlet.
He was the one who suggested the outlets and I can’t help it if we had to park close to the Coach Factory.
I purchased two bags…
Next, we hit the Bass Outlet…I do have a suggestion when outlet shopping… be sure to bring a pack mule.
Finally, we made it to the whole reason for going to the outlets in the first place…Under Armor.
Naturally, when we walked in the sales team recognized that Hubster was an elite runner and that I had clearly spent a full 55 minutes working out that morning so when Hubster purchased his six pack of moisture “wicking” socks and two moisture “wicking” running shirts, they of course asked for my email address. I haven’t checked my inbox yet, but I’m certain they would like to know all about our training routine.
On Saturday night we ate at Hubster’s favorite ( I like it also, but I want him to think it was all about him) Mexican restaurant.
After dinner we headed back to the hotel for a 9 pm bedtime…don’t want to change our routine too much and risk ruining all the exercise.
Last stop before heading home…
We drove up Route 1 toward Rehoboth, DE…there is a stretch of beach where building is not permitted. I love that view.
Upon arrival home we discovered the nandina, euonymus and azalea out in front were quite bare. The dear netting that was wrapped around it had been stripped away as well. It seems our local herd of deer knew we were out of town.
When I went to throw some of our weekend laundry into the washer I looked out the window toward the backyard and this is what I saw:
We counted thirteen in all…
My own children never had this many guests when we went out of town.
Have a great Monday…next stop Home Depot for some Liquid Fence…it stinks, but it works.
