Iron Girl does Wagner’s

Wow, what a gorgeous week, huh? Lurve this time of year, despite every sunny, warm day depressingly feeling like the last. Ugh. Well, there will be plenty of days to suffer actual melancholy of the chill – a day as hot, in fact sticky, as today is not one of them.

Nathan and I opened the day by cheering Stacey’s kickass finish of the “Iron Girl” duathlon (run-bike-run) at Normandale Lake in Bloomington. Go Stacey go! Cooper was there too, to cheer on his mommy, as well as eat crackers, quack like an Aflac (race sponsor) duck, and run wild like the two-year old he is. Coop!

Stacey earned herself whatever the heck she wanted for dinner, and she chose…Wagner’s Drive-Inn in St. Louis Park. A fine choice, in fact a classic, heartily seconded by myself and Nathan (even though we ran in exactly zero races today). She, we, and Cooper tucked into juicy homemade burgers, skin-on skinny fries, crispy onions rings, and creamy-thick chocolate malts, uff. I feel like I have lead in my stomach. I do have lead in my stomach. Tasty lead. Burger lead. Deeelicious.

This week, holy moly, party week my friends. A Susie Silpada Sales party on Tuesday night and the 7th grade parent party on Saturday. Hey, nothing like a party (or two) to kick one’s butt into gear and wrap up numerous nagging house projects. It’s always been my strategy (pure self-motivation runs thin in my veins). Works like a charm…

Moderate it: I watched someone else workout and then ate a burger. I got nothin’, I’m sorry.

    OMG, completely over-the-top, hahaha. Nathan has begged all summer to go, and I've managed to avoid it, for just this reason. I am still full, I'm not kidding. Ah well, it was certainly delicious!

    Now that's MY kind of moderation...:-)
